Patients aren't used to dentures being in their mouths. The brain perceives the appliance as food and sends signals to the salivary glands to increase saliva production and secrete more at a faster rate. Sore spots will occur when dentures are pressed against the mucosa. 

This issue can be resolved by a few adjustments to the dentures in the weeks after the removal of natural teeth and the insertion of dentures. You can book your appointment with the dentist in Cranbrook denture clinic by clicking over here

Removable oral appliances must be kept in place by three principles: stability, support, and retention.


The principle of support is how the underlying mucosa, which includes the gums, keeps the denture in the vertical plane towards that arch. This function is provided by the buccal vestibule and the gingival for the mandibular arch. In the maxillary arch, however, the palate joins the mouth to support the denture. The denture flanges, which are the part of the denture that extends into a vestibule, are larger and provide better support.


Stability refers to how well the denture base can be prevented from moving in the horizontal plane and from sliding side-to-side, front or back. The denture base (pink material), which is in continuous contact with the edentulous ridge (the hill on which the teeth used to be) will have a smoother, more stable contact.


Retention refers to how well the denture prevents from moving in the vertical direction opposite of its insertion. If the topographical mimicry is good, the denture base will not come in contact with the mucosal surface. A complete and comprehensive border seal is essential in the retentive design for a full maxillary dental denture to ensure "suction."
