Can Dentures be Fitted to Receding Gums

Dentures have long been a solution for individuals with missing teeth, offering the chance to restore functionality and confidence. However, as time passes, some patients may experience changes in their gum and bone structure, leading to receding gums. This natural occurrence might leave some wondering whether dentures can still be fitted comfortably and securely. 

In our latest blog we address this common concern and shed light on how adapting dentures to receding gums is not only possible but also achievable with the right approach and expert care.

Understanding Receding Gums

Receding gums, or gum recession, is a gradual process where the gum tissue surrounding the teeth begins to wear away, exposing more of the tooth’s surface or even the tooth’s root. This can occur due to factors such as age, genetics, gum disease, aggressive brushing or teeth grinding. While receding gums can present challenges, they need not be a roadblock to achieving a comfortable and functional denture fit.
