Jaw degeneration

Dentures may loose their firm seat, if new spaces occur through the ongoing degeneration of the jaw bone.

This also can result from the jaw - muscle getting tired.

Other reasons may be the slackening of the jaw muscles, resulting in the loss of the closure function - the vacuum - of the edges of the jaw.

In addition, thin saliva, too low or too strong flow of saliva can influence the denture's hold.
