My father got full dentures last year before he completely became an invalid. Since then he’s lost a lot of weight, apparently his mouth shrunk too. Aside from the cost of getting a new set, how does one deal with the fact that being fitted for new ones would be an extremely difficult task since the patient is bed ridden and goes in and out of being lucid enough to communicate needs. It feels cruel to take away his dentures and resort to mushy food, but I can’t imagine getting my dad to a dentist in his condition. I guess this is more of a venting then a question. I was completely unaware that a person’s mouth could shrink with severe weight loss and wanted to share that tidbit with other caregivers who have loved ones with dentures.
