Denture Pain Signs, Symptoms And Causes

Denture pain is usually associated with raw, red tissues or yeast infections in the mouth. It may also be due to an improperly fitting denture or a denture that is not worn properly on a regular basis.

Signs And Symptoms

Denture pain is fairly straightforward with specific symptoms associated with the condition. You may experience:

    • Isolated red areas on the skin under your denture

    • White patches of yeast on the skin under your denture

    • Raw, red tissue

  • Gums that appear to grow over your denture


Causes

Most denture pain is caused by bacteria being present in the mouth, on the denture, and against the roof of the mouth under where the denture is worn. When bacteria are not removed effectively and the denture is worn for an extended amount of time, redness or yeast infections can develop.

Another cause of denture pain is not wearing the denture all day and removing it each night. Allowing your mouth to become accustomed to a new denture takes time. If the denture does not fit properly it may cause sores due to rubbing.
