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.

Pro Soft reline works great

I was searching for a product to replace cushion grip. Pro Soft is actually better. Easy to use and not as messy. No tube to heat up under hot water before use. Comes with two applications one is plenty fro upper or lower denture. Once trimmed stays that way for good. Once applied stays the same way and doesn’t change until you replace it with a new one, which I haven’t had to do yet. Can be soaked with denture cleaner over night and can be used with Fixodent or Poli-grip. Super product for the person who cannot afford a reline job from the dentist.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good replacement for previous cushion grip users

I was a happy cushion grip user until they stopped making it. I looked around for a product that did the same thing. I read review after review and finally settled on ProSoft. I did this because a previous cushion grip user recommended it as a similar replacement. The reviewer suggested that to get the same results you needed to stir the mixture until the consistency was about the same as the consistency the cushion grip. This is longer than the ProSoft directions say. I did this and low and behold the result was exactly as the cushion grip and performed and even better. I purchased on Sept 15, 2015 and have only needed to replace once and the second application is still in place and just fine. I must say that I only have used it on the lower denture because the upper is just fine without any additional help. Some say the taste when you first apply is not very good. For those of us that are used to the cushion grip product is is about the same and goes away quickly. By the way, I only use about half of a bottle and powder to do the entire lower denture so I get 4 applications with each purchase. Great product.
