Poor oral hygiene causes problem for dentures just as it does for natural teeth. Food particles get stuck, and that breeds bacteria. Bacteria can weaken the denture. The acrylic or porcelain that makes up the dentures is a very porous material. That’s another reason dentures need to be replaced every few years.
