Losing natural teeth can be a devastating experience. It can take away not only your ability to eat and speak properly but also your confidence. Dentures can restore your smile, but they can become loose over time and cause discomfort.

Loose dentures can make eating and speaking difficult and cause embarrassment. Fortunately, there are ways to manage loose dentures and ensure they stay in place. In this quick guide, we'll discuss some tips to help you secure your smile and avoid the need for replacing dentures.

1. Use Denture Adhesives

Denture adhesives are a great way to keep your dentures in place. They come in different forms, such as creams, powders, and strips. Denture adhesives create a bond between your dentures and gums, preventing them from moving around.

Before applying the adhesive, make sure your dentures are clean and dry. Apply a small amount of the adhesive to the denture surface, then place them in your mouth and press firmly.

2. Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Regular dental checkups are crucial to maintaining good oral health, especially if you wear dentures. Your dentist can inspect the fit of your dentures and oral tissues to ensure there are no underlying problems. Your dentist can adjust or reline your dentures to improve their fit if necessary.

3. Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Good oral hygiene is critical for preventing gum disease and other dental problems. Brush your gums, tongue, and remaining teeth (if any) twice a day with a soft-bristled brush.

This will help scrape off food particles and bacteria that can cause irritation and inflammation. Gargle with an antiseptic mouthwash to kill bacteria and freshen your breath.

4. Eat Soft Foods

Eating hard and crunchy foods can dislodge your dentures and cause discomfort. Limit your diet to soft foods like mashed potatoes, soup, and cooked vegetables. Chew slowly and use both sides of your mouth to distribute the pressure evenly.

5. Avoid Sticky Foods

Sticky foods such as caramel, chewing gum, toffee, and even certain types of candy are notorious for causing denture problems. These foods can stick to your dentures and cause them to loosen or shift around in your mouth. This can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, especially if it happens while you are eating or talking with others.

To avoid this problem, it is best to avoid sticky foods altogether. However, if you cannot resist the temptation, you can cut them into small pieces before eating. This will help reduce the contact between the sticky food and your dentures, preventing them from dislodging.

6. Practice Speaking

Learning to speak with dentures can take some practice. Start by reading out loud or singing along to your favorite songs. Pay attention to your pronunciation and diction, and practice speaking slowly and clearly. This will help you adjust to your new dentures and feel more confident when speaking.

7. Be Patient

Adjusting to new dentures can take time, so be patient with yourself. It's normal to experience some discomfort and difficulty at first, but things will get easier with time. If you still have trouble after a few weeks, talk to your dentist about adjusting your dentures.


Loose dentures can be a frustrating and uncomfortable experience. However, with the tips outlined in this guide, you can manage loose dentures and avoid the need for replacing dentures.

By using denture adhesives, visiting your dentist regularly, practicing good oral hygiene, eating soft foods, avoiding sticky foods, practicing speaking, and being patient, you can secure your smile and regain your confidence.
