5 Clear Signs It's Time for New Dentures

Ensuring your dentures are in optimal condition is crucial not only for a radiant smile but also for digestion. Neglecting to replace worn-out or ill-fitting dentures can lead to a decline in self-confidence and avoidance of certain foods.


Discover the 5 signs indicating that your dentures may be due for a replacement:


Loose or Uncomfortable Fit:

If you observe your dentures becoming loose, slipping, or causing discomfort, it may be a result of wear and tear. Jawbone resorption over time can impact the fit of your dentures, requiring a refitting or replacement for optimal function and comfort. When adjustments no longer work, it may be time for a new set of dentures!


Visible Wear and Tear:

Dentures have a lifespan of approximately 5-7 years. Regularly inspect your dentures for signs of wear, such as cracks, chips, or worn surfaces. Visible damage is a clear indication that your dentures might be compromising both function and aesthetics. Our Denturists at Beausejour Denture Clinic can assess your dentures and provide expert advice.


Changes in Bite and Chewing Efficiency:

A gradual decline in your ability to bite and chew effectively could signal the need for new dentures. Difficulty with certain foods or a noticeable decline in chewing efficiency may mean your dentures are in need of replacement. The entire digestive process starts in your mouth, with chewing. When you chew your food, it gets broken down into smaller pieces which are easier to digest. When mixed with saliva, chewing allows your body to extract the greatest possible amount of nutrients from the food you eat

Persistent Discomfort or Irritation:

Ideally, well-fitted dentures should be comfortable and free of irritation. If you're experiencing persistent discomfort, sore spots, or irritation, it's crucial to consult our support staff for an appointment. Changes in the shape of your jawbone or gums over time may necessitate adjustments, refitting, or new dentures.


Speech Difficulties:

Changes in your ability to pronounce words or speak clearly may be linked to your dentures. If you notice sudden speech difficulties or a persistent lisp, consult with your Denturist. These issues may indicate a need for new dentures that better accommodate the natural movements of your mouth.


Investing in a beautiful smile is an investment in your confidence and overall well-being.  If you are looking for first-time dentures or replacement, schedule a free assessment with our Denturists for a personalized treatment plan. A new set of dentures might just be the gateway to a brighter, more confident you.
