RE: Lower false teeth

You don't say how old you are, but I'm guessing that you are getting on in years. It's natural that the gums shrink and there is also some bone loss in the jaw. The shape of the jaw can actually change a little. Ask your dentist, it might be a good idea to get a new set made. Otherwise, I think the only option is either to have them lined again or just put up with them like they are.
