What’s happening with the dental work in your smile? Have you known for quite a while that a dental crown you received years ago from a different practice has never exactly fit the way it should? Have you noticed that the denture you’ve been wearing seems to have warped a bit but you keep wearing it without seeking improvement because you’re busy? Whatever the type of issue, we encourage you to recognize that the work in your smile should fit seamlessly with the rest of your oral structures. Otherwise, some serious and negative complications may arise. Find out more!
To Prevent Imbalance Related Problems
The first reason you need dental work that actually fits correctly with the rest of your bite is because the balance of your bite is essential to optimal oral health. Here’s what you need to recognize: An ideal, healthy smile is one in which your top teeth and bottom teeth fit comfortably together. This yields successful and comfortable eating, speaking, and resting. If your dental prosthetic or other work does not fit, it may interrupt this important balance.
To Avoid Friction, Abrasions, and Sores
What happens when your denture slips and slips, rubbing against your gums? At first, you’ll deal with some irritation and the sensation that you’ve got a blister in your mouth. Then, you will notice you’re experiencing a lot of soreness and you may even shift your smile to eat and speak and smile differently. After that, you may end up with some serious sores in your mouth! Talk with us between visits if you think your dental work is fitting poorly, so we can prevent such problems.
