When is it Time to Get Dentures?

Getting dentures is a very personal matter.  Most likely you’ll know when it’s time and your dentist will be able to tell you as well.

Most importantly, if your dentures are causing your mouth pain and several teeth need to be pulled, it may be time for dentures, or maybe you only need a partial denture.

If you need more information regarding dentures and learning to wear them, you can visit our page of “All About Dentures.”

Another reason you might need dentures is if you were born with soft teeth.  Soft teeth or teeth with little or no enamel (yes, some people are born like this), causes the tooth to become decayed and weakened.  In this case, it’s very important to save your gums and your bones in your mouth from becoming infected, which will be a very painful experience.

If you have rotting teeth and can be very detrimental to your health.  It is a known fact that bad teeth cause heart problems and other health issues.

Bad breath?  Most likely from rotting teeth.  It can be embarrassing for anyone to have to experience bad breath.

Aesthetics?  Yes, dentures can give you a beautiful smile.  Your teeth are one of the first things people notice when they look at you.  Once you have dentures, you will most likely feel secure when smiling and much more confident.

What if your dentures are uncomfortable and you don’t want to wear them?

Perma Soft Denture Reline Kit, Making Dentures fit since 1986

You should first visit your dentist to see if he can adjust the denture for a better fit.  However, you may need a permanent or soft denture reline from your dentist.  Your gums will shrink once your teeth are extracted and your dentures will ultimately become loose and cause your gums to be sore and end up with unbearable sore spots.  While your gums heal you can use a soft reliner like ProSoft Denture Reliners, which also is a tissue conditioner like dentists use.  The main ingredient in the liquid is ethyl alcohol and it will soothe sore gums and promote faster healing.

ProSoft Denture Liner

Most importantly, be sure to keep your regular dental visits.  Your dentist knows best and will be able to see beyond the outer teeth with x-rays.  He may also propose that you get implants.  Yes, they can be expensive, but make wearing dentures much easier.  In the meantime, have your dentist place a soft denture liner in your denture plate or use an over-the-counter denture reline kit or DIY denture reliner until you can see your dentist.

A:  Perma Soft denture reline kit is a very firm reliner an lasts for up to 2 years in the denture according to our customer experiences.

from what customers have told us.

the solution.  Avoid getting the liner wet from the solution.  You can still soak denture in water overnight.  Use a soft
toothbrush and toothpaste or denture paste to clean the liner.

What is a Denture Reline?

What is a denture reline?

A denture reline keeps dentures snug and tight when they are loose.  Loose dentures irritate the gums and may cause sore spots and inflamed gums.

Should I reline my dentures at home?

Great question.  Yes.  Why not.  It cannot ruin your dentures because it can be taken out.  There is no reason why you shouldn’t reline your dentures at home.  The process is easy and affordable.  Just be sure keep regular dentist appointments.

 

Why do I need Denture reliner?

Not everyone needs a denture reliner.  Some people are lucky enough to have secure-fitting dentures.  However, the millions of people who cannot wear their dentures do need something in their denture to keep it from moving around and feeling miserable.  A denture reliner will fill in the gaps between your denture and your gums and cushion the grip.

How much does a denture reliner cost?

The cost of a denture reline costs anywhere from $200 to $300 at your dentist.  Most insurance companies do not cover this cost.  An over-the-counter denture liner is affordable and can get you by until your next dental visit.

What about denture adhesives?

Denture adhesives are a great way to temporarily hold your dentures in place so you can eat or speak.  They come in a tube and you squeeze the material into your denture and spread it around the denture base.  This forms a suction to keep your denture snug.  An adhesive needs replaced several times per day.

What is the difference between a denture reliner and a denture adhesive?

Both products deliver secure dentures.  As mentioned above adhesives need replaced several times a day.  A denture reliner is a powder and liquid that when mixed together and placed in the denture forms a custom-fit denture liner that stays in the denture for several months or years and does not need to be replaced daily.

Can I use adhesives over a denture reline?

As we cannot confirm how other denture liners work with adhesives, we do know that you can reline over top of Perma Soft denture reline kit.  Perma Soft is a firm relner that lasts up to two years in the denutre.
