Denture Problems...Dr. Marx Can Help
denture wearers in the Washington DC area breathe a sigh of relief when they get their first pair
of dentures because they think their dental problems are over. What they
soon realize, however, is that they have just traded some old problems for
Even the best dentures can't compete with natural teeth in ability to
chew food efficiently and comfortably. As the years go by, the
supporting ridges that remain after teeth have been removed gradually
change and get smaller.
Dr. Marx believes that for most patients, their dentures need to be "relined" or "refitted" every
2-4 years so that the denture will conform to the changing ridge. A
large change in weight can also alter the shape of the mouth, causing
changes in the fit.
