Can Tissue Conditioning Make Your Dentures More Comfortable?

Posted on 1/17/2016 by Dr Wael Garine
A pair of denture floating inside a glass jar.Do your dentures feel uncomfortable or as if they aren't functioning properly? Your dentist might recommend tissue conditioning, as this approach can help your gums to heal. Tissue conditioning can be used if your dentures no longer fit properly and have caused injury to your gums or if you are about to get your first set.

When Tissue Conditioning Might Be Recommended

There are several scenarios in which your dentist might recommend that you pursue tissue reconditioning, including:

•  You experience pain when your dentures are in your mouth
•  Your dentures don't fit well and seem to be getting worse
•  Your mouth is healing from recent tooth extractions
•  Your dentures have caused accelerated bone loss due to an improper fit
•  Your gums appear red and inflamed as a result of your dentures

The Tissue Conditioning Process

Tissue conditioning will provide your gums with a soft surface in order to adhere to dentures. This helps to reduce the soreness and pressure that can result from being exposed to the hard materials used to make dentures.

During the tissue conditioning process, your dentist will likely put a lining in your dentures if they are in good shape and aren't damaging your gums. This is often done while you are in a transitional period with a new pair of dentures. This soft acrylic liner will give the underlying tissue time to heal.

Tissue conditioning will help your gums to recover from injury and heal faster than ever, allowing your dentures to function and fit better. If your dentures are uncomfortable or are injuring your mouth, please contact us about what options might be available, including tissue conditioning.

Your dentures should feel comfortable in your mouth and allow you to eat and speak normally, so if you are not able to complete these activities, it is important that you take action.
