Why are dentures out of adjustment?

Dental Prostheses

The adjustment of a prosthesis is made when they lose stability. Bone loss is the main reason prosthetics become unstable. Bone reduction may be due to age but also due to periodontal disease (gingivitis / periodontitis).

If you wear dentures and do not practice good oral hygiene habits, you could be at risk for gum disease. Smoking, certain medications and diabetes also promote gingivitis development and the need for a denture adjustment.
