At New Image Dental Implant Center in Cherry Creek, we regularly see this common problem. Most often occurring in our Denver and Cherry Creek patients who wear a complete upper denture, denture-related stomatitis causes inflammation, redness, and pain of the oral mucous membrane beneath the denture. The condition is also sometimes called ‘denture sore mouth.’
Denture-related stomatitis is most often caused by over-wearing the denture (not removing it while sleeping) or by inadequate oral hygiene. While denture-related stomatitis is usually mild and treatable, it is just one more potential inconvenience related to dentures. Some of our denture-wearing Cherry Creek patients also complain of slipping, discomfort, clicking, and a decrease in the ability to taste food.
If you have experienced any of these problems with your dentures, it might be time to consider implant dentistry. We offer several options for our denture-wearing patients to improve the stability and function of their teeth. Not to mention, dental implants can last a lifetime – no more relining or replacing those dentures!
