Dentistry/Keloids in mouth


I have keloids between my gum and cheek caused by dentures. They get painful at times. What can I do to get rid if them?

hi lori
please junk your denture in a bin and preferably crush it too!
dentures arent supposed to hurt. if yours are- then my dear, you need to change your dentist as well!
as far as your keloids are concerned: dont wear your dentures for a week or so and ur keloids should go away.
if however they dont at the end of 10 days: go and show them to a dentist.
best wishes
