Are you worried about your dentures staying in place? Concerned about how to stop dentures from moving? You may have heard the stories, like the grandma blowing her birthday candle out with her dentures making a flying appearance, but life doesn’t need to be like that. We’ve collected all the tips you need on how to keep dentures in place so you can avoid any embarrassing slips.

Handle Your Dentures with Care

Look after your dentures, and your dentures will look after you. One reason some denture wearers struggle to keep their dentures in place is because they get damaged or deformed from being dropped. Your dentures are an important part of your life, and with a little care, they can live a long and happy life with you.

  • Be gentle with your dentures. Dentures can deform if you handle them roughly, so make sure you don’t bend or damage them when cleaning or using them. Your dentures are made to fit, and if they become misshapen, you may have problems keeping them in place.

  • Take care not to drop them when inserting, removing, or cleaning. Put a towel down on the ground or on the sink in case you drop them. Always be extra careful when putting in or taking out dentures as they can easily break.

  • Use a cleaning solution or water to soak dentures overnight. Some dentures need to be left overnight in a cleaning solution, others in water. Follow that advice your dentist gives on how to store your particular denture. Avoid using hot water as this can warp the denture.

Get Your Dentures Adjusted by a Dentist

Ill-fitting dentures are one of the main causes of dentures that just won’t stay in place. Your dentist can help you get your dentures adjusted so they stay secure while you’re talking, eating or going about your day.

  • Dentures may not fit over time. Your gums and bones will change over time, which means your dentures may not fit as they used to. It’s also possible your dentures will change shape from use as well. Dentures that don’t fit will cause irritation of the gums and won’t feel secure.

  • See your dentist if your dentures don’t fit. If you feel that your dentures don’t fit, make an appointment with your dentist to get them adjusted, so they can feel more comfortable and your dentures secure.
