Like everything else in this temporary world, your dentures have a lifetime too. Over a period of time, dentures need replacement because of either, the need to be remade, rebased (creating a new base over the existing dentures) or even relined. Especially if they are worn every day. Even aging can cause the dentures to become loose.
Newer, Better Dentures:
In the old days, when our parents’ grandparents used them (yes that far back) the dentures were uncomfortable to wear, did not fit well and usually caused sore spots in the mouth and were painful. Since the dentures were made from hard acrylic, they often looked fake making them painful to wear and caused plastic smiles. The old dentures were also difficult to care for. The reason why we see so many toothless pictures of people (from that time).
In today’s world of science and medical advancement, the dentures are incredible. Not only do they fit in the mouth without causing any sores or pain they look completely natural. This has taken quite a few years but now they are made according to your mouth structure and provide better support and more secure.
