Dentures are a common solution for missing teeth, but after some time, dentures can wear down. Aging causes the jaw bone shrink and the contour of the gum line naturally recedes. This results in loose dentures and painful gums. Properly fitting dentures should rest comfortably against the gums and remain in place without any pain.
