The mouth is a "dynamic entity" that is "constantly changing" and this constitutes a denture as a medical necessity for the edentulous patient...

Teeth are an important part of your body. Losing teeth will place a person in the "handicapped category". Some common concerns associated with wearing dentures that do not fit properly or by not wearing dentures at all are:

General health concerns

Weight loss, fatigue, and lowered immunity can occur and consequently put the patient at a greater risk for diseases.

Oral health concerns

check mark green   Contributes to Templar Mandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ).
check mark green   Loss of facial muscle control.

Psychological concerns

These negative impacts can be avoided by wearing a new upper and lower denture or by relining your current denture.
For denture wearer's it is medically necessary that you maintain denture accuracy and sanitation.
