Health Tip: When Dentures Need Adjusting

While dentures are made to fit your mouth, natural changes often signal that your dentures should be adjusted.

The American Dental Association says you may need an adjustment if:

  • Your gums recede or shrink, affecting the fit of your dentures.
  • The natural aging process causes changes in the fit of your dentures.
  • You develop frequent mouth sores or infections.

Always have your dentures adjusted by your dentist. And never use over-the-counter glue to try to repair your dentures.
