Generally, people who have poor fitting dentures that slip and move will experience the pain of abrasion from dentures against the gums.
Although there are several reasons for gum pain from dentures, improper fit is the number one cause of discomfort.
Remedies for Pain Relief from Dentures
Various remedies are available for temporary relief of denture pain.
If you have pain from your dentures, you should remove them and allow the gums to rest so that gum inflammation is relieved.
Denture cushions, creams and adhesives all offer a temporary system of buffering the denture from rubbing against the gum for a short-term relief option.
If you’re serious about alleviating denture pain, you have two real options for permanent comfort:
1. Implant dentures
2. Full dental implants
What are the Benefits of Implant Dentures or Dental Implants?
The Implant denture is securely affixed to abutments that are inserted into your jawbone and attach to the custom fitted denture. The abutment acts as your natural root, holding the denture in place with a strong grip, alleviating slippage and movement. The result is a natural looking and natural feeling denture that will not irritate your gums due to slippage or movement when chewing or speaking.
Another benefit of Implant Dentures is that there is no covering of the palate and this allows you to taste the natural flavor of food again.
A full dental implant is the individual replacement of missing teeth. Similar to the procedure of the implant denture, each individual tooth has its own abutment, acting exactly as your natural root, to hold each individual tooth in place. With dental implants, you will have the permanent tooth replacement for the most natural look and feel of your natural teeth.
