Wearing or doing anything new, you may feel a little discomfort in the beginning. The same applies to dentures, and it’s not uncommon for new dentures to cause pain, sores, and discomfort at first. The pain associated with new dentures is not necessarily a bad thing, rather it’s a sign of getting used to something new, but sometimes pain and irritation is not just ‘teething pain’, but can be a sign that something is not right – like ill-fitting or slipping dentures. This is why one of the most important steps your dentist will take is measuring the perfect fit. If you’re looking to find out why you’re having problems with dentures and the solution, you’ve come to the right place!
