If you have dentures it is very important to keep your mouth healthy and clean. Make sure that your dentures fit properly in your mouth. If you fail to do so, this can cause many different issues such as gum and irritation, mouth infections and if your dentures are loose this could cause problems while trying to speak or eat. There's different types of infections caused by dentures, such as Cheilitis and Stomatitis. Cheilitis causes inflammation and cracking around your mouth.
Cheilitis occurs when there is too much yeast build up. Both can be prevented by proper denture care and medicine.
