If you get dentures that do not fit you, you could develop fungal infections. Ulcers are another risk that could occur from poorly fitting ones. People with a bad fit are also susceptible to a condition known as hyperplasia. This condition occurs when the gum becomes irritated due to a denture not fitting the gum properly. The gum starts to grow into fill the space, which can result in an infection.  Bone shrinkage is a risk of poorly fitting dentures as well, since chewing forces don’t transfer to the bone effectively. When this happens, scar tissue eventually ends up replacing the bone.
