Can dentures be fitted to receding gums?

Dentures rely on suction to stay in place, and that suction is created by the snug fit of the denture against the gum line. When the gum tissue starts to shrink due to gum disease, that suction diminishes, and the denture isn't as secure. In addition, receding gums can cause the bone underneath to shrink as well, further exacerbating the problem. 

So, can dentures be fitted to receding gums? The answer is yes! If your gums have started to recede, it's not too late to get a denture that fits correctly. 

When you get a new denture, Dr. Santos will take measurements of your mouth and craft a denture that fits snugly against your gums. This ensures that your denture is comfortable and doesn't slip around in your mouth. Additionally, a well-fitting denture will help to prevent further gum recession. So, if you're starting to notice that your gums are receding, don't hesitate to call us for a consultation or get fitted for a new denture.
