Here are some signs to check that clould indicate you might require a denture replacement:
1. Your Dentures are Not Fitting Well
If you have been wearing your dentures for a few years, the overall fit of your dentures may get loose. It may happen because your underlying bone structure is shifting constantly. A lose denture can be very uncomfortable for eating and speaking. A lose denture can be fixed with a simple realining procedure but if you see a significant change in how your dentures fit, it might be better to replace them.
2. You Are Using Your Dentures For A Long Time
Although dentures are made of high-quality materials, they have a specific lifespan. Usually, a good denture can last up to 10 years.

4. You Have Missing A Tooth In Your Denture
Sometimes the artificial teeth of your dentures may get broken and when this happens you can replace the whole denture or in some cases, you can simply repair it. But to be sure you must visit your dentist to be assessed.
