There is a common and mistaken belief that associates wearing dentures with the feelings of discomfort, irritability, and frustration. Some of this misconception might simple be due to a lack of knowledge or a lack of personal experience with these devices – but in many other instances, such a perception might be skewed/influenced by unfavourable or negative third-party feedback.
In other words, someone complained about discomfort or frustration with their dentures and this influenced the listener to then have the same type of reaction, even though that latter person had no personal experience or familiarity with dentures of their own.
There are many reasons why dentures might be uncomfortable, including but not limited to:
- an improper fit
- simple wear-and-tear
- lack of proper care
- bone/tissue shrinkage
- weight loss post-fitting
Any of these factors could lead people to complain about discomfort with their dentures, to the point that they actually stop wearing them and/or influence others who may otherwise benefit from dentures to forego consulting with a denturist.
It is therefore understandable when patients who visit our Bajic Denture Clinic for the first time arrive with the misconception that wearing dentures will cause them some discomfort.
But you can rest assured that this perception or assumption is far from the truth.
Dentures Do Not Need to be Uncomfortable
The manufacture of dentures is an elaborate process that requires a number of visits to our denture clinic. Despite any perceived inconvenience with the number or frequency of these visits, each session is an integral part of the manufacturing process to ensure that your new dentures fit precisely and securely in your mouth. We take the extra steps/care necessary to provide you with properly-fitting dentures that:
- seem like natural teeth
- fit snuggly and comfortably
- match the contours of your face
- function appropriately and effectively
- provide a confident smile and appearance
From time to time, even custom-manufactured dentures can cause some soreness/irritation or lose some of their function/effectiveness. Such situations can be easily remedied in our onsite lab through one of the following processes:
- dental implants
Based on your specific need, any and all of these procedures will help return the proper and stable fit you expect and need from your dentures, along with the confidence and comfort that such a fit provides when you are eating, talking, smiling, enjoying the company of your family and friends, etc.
Your dentures do not need to be uncomfortable.
