Patient Questions Related to Denture Adjustments
I just received new dentures, why do I need an adjustment?
New dentures can take some time to get used to, which is why we provide an affordable approach to denture adjustments. For dentures fabricated at the practice you visited, adjustments are available at no charge during the first 60 days after your treatment. Afterward, adjustments are available for a nominal fee.
Why are my dentures hurting my mouth?
Full or partial dentures rest on your gums. They are specially crafted to fit the contours of your mouth to ensure a fit that feels as close to your nature teeth as possible. Over time, your dentures may end up sitting in high spots on you gum line. This causes dentures to rub against the mouth, gums, and surrounding soft tissue – unfortunately, resulting in discomfort and soreness.

Your local Affordable Dentures & Implants practice offers denture adjustments to continue to customize your denture for you.
