Denture Problems...Dr. Marx Can Help

Many 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 new ones.

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.

If you have questions about your dentures, please call Comprehensive Dental Care at 202 466-3599 for answers.
