Gum resorption is a natural occurrence in which your gum shrinks, growing thinner. It can be painful and uncomfortable to the point that even frequent re-adjusting of your dentures does not help, and it may cause your dental prosthesis to become loose and hard to manage.
At Medicine Hat Denture Clinic Inc., we can help you solve this problem by recommending a denture with a soft base. The soft base is made of a porous material, and it lines the prosthesis. It provides stability to your denture without being an irritant for gum tissues. It is mainly used for lower dentures.
The soft base does not stop the resorption of your gums as their shape is constantly changing. To maintain gum hygiene and health, we recommend that the soft base is examined annually at least. We will also help you find the right products to clean the soft base.
