Don’t Wait, Get Help With Geriatric Denture Repair In NYC

If you or your loved one wear dentures that are loose or ill-fitting, it is important to get them fixed with geriatric denture repair in NYC. You may think that poorly fitting dentures are a minor inconvenience, but if they are not repaired, they may cause damage.

As we age our gums shrink and if we do not have our dentures relines or remade, our lower jaw and upper jaw may not align, leading to the face muscles virtually collapsing. If the muscles collapse, it gives the appearance of premature aging by causing aged and wrinkled features. Without NYC geriatric denture repair, badly fitting or loose dentures can also cause:

  • Dull pain in or around the ears
  • A clicking or snapping noise when chewing
  • Headaches
  • Cracked or continually sore corners of the mouth
  • Speech problems
  • Difficulty eating

Long term problems associated with the need for denture repair include swelling, sores, dietary problems, and infections.
