Are loose dentures causing difficulties for your aging parent or loved one? Did you know that loose dentures could possibly trigger some serious stomach and digestive issues?
A huge indicator that it may be time to fix loose dentures is when you notice the dentures slipping or falling down when your loved one is talking or eating. Because of the inevitable aging process, the shape of our faces and mouths change due to the loss of bone and muscle structure. This structural deterioration of the jawbone can cause the dentures to not fit correctly. Even a little weight loss can affect how dentures fit.
Ill-fitting dentures can cause a myriad of difficulties such as pain, poor nutrition, and discomfort.
Dr. Alisa Kauffman of Geriatric House Call Dentistry can help with a much-needed denture repair.
Having to fix loose dentures in the past was a terrible ordeal, especially for older vulnerable patients. Tougher still, on the patients who suffered from Alzheimer’s or dementia. Not so with Dr. Kauffman. She will bring the dentist office to your loved one! Because she brings the office bedside, denture adjustment or repair is much easier and less stressful for a patient who may already be in an elevated state of fear.
