Health Tip: When Dentures Need Adjusting

Your dentist should do so

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
