Your dentures do not change when the face, jaw or oral tissues change. Although dentures can be relined to accommodate some of these changes, this can only be done a certain number of times. Dentures tend to become thicker and heavier each time this is done and can result in other problems that require replacement to correct. Dentures are made of acrylic, which is a type of plastic. Over time, these plastics can wear and become brittle making them more susceptible to breakage. While dentures can be repaired, it may be a short term solution to a more severe problem.
Here are some of the signs suggesting that you should consider replacing your dentures:
Irritated and swollen gums
Problems with chewing certain foods
