I have dentures and the lower one floats around. It makes it very difficult to eat. What can I do to be able to eat comfortably again?
The hardest dental appliance to get used to is the complete denture that replaces lower teeth. When it does not have anything holding it in, it is fighting the tongue, muscles of the cheeks and chin, and lack of surface area to create suction. There are several ways you can solve this concern.
The first option would be to have the lower denture relined or even remade. Over time the tissue where your teeth were shrinks. If you do either of these options the lower denture will adapt better, making it fit better.
