If i lose a stone in weight will it affect the fit of my partial upper dentures in my gum

Q. If I lose a stone in weight will it affect the fit of my partial upper denture or will the gums be unaffected by the weight loss. thank you;

A. Weight Loss can affect the fit of a denture, however if yours is a partial denture then most of the fit will be borne by the remaining teeth so the fit should still be ok
