4 Potential Denture Issues And Solutions If you are wearing dentures for the first time, the adjustment period can be very difficult. Here are 4 potential problems you may run into, and the solutions to fix them. Gum Sores Your gums may develop white sores over the first couple of days when wearing dentures. These are caused from your dentures rubbing on your gums. It’s very common, and the sores usually go away on their own after your body gets used to them. Until then, you can use a denture adhesive that will limit any movement the dentures are making in your mouth. If you still have sores after the first few weeks, it could be from a problem with your dentures not fitting correctly. Visit your dentist so that they can be readjusted.
