A sweet elderly woman named Evelyn has been battling the discomfort, pain and embarrassing moments brought on by her dentures. She began to tear up thinking about her experience at her granddaughter's wedding the previous weekend. They served the family members steak, which she hadn’t been able to eat for years because of her dentures but she was too embarrassed to say anything. As she attempted to eat the steak, her poor fitting dentures began sliding around in her mouth. She was mortified as she discretely spit out the steak into her fabric napkin and laid it over her plate.

While they may make work as a scotch tape fix, for long term they are, in essence, just devices that enable you to chew on your gums. Unfortunately, the consequence of chewing on your gums is bone loss.
