If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth from gum disease or tooth decay, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile.
Your dentures may become loose over time. Having your dentures professionally relined will help keep everything secure and functional.
Partial dentures are designed to replace a string of missing teeth, attaching to those that are remaining.
Overdentures are replacement teeth retained by dental implants, helping both partial and fully edentulous patients regain a quality of life.
If you suffer from dental disease, malnutrition, or genetic disorders, you may need your teeth extracted by a professional. Losing your permanent teeth may seem devastating but dentures provide a second chance at having a smile you can be proud of!
Your facial structure and speech will improve once you are suited with complete dentures, and chewing food will become easy once again. Immediate dentures give you a full set of pseudo-teeth while you are waiting for your gums to heal and bone to realign. No matter what option you go with, we’ll ensure your replacement teeth are natural-looking and match your facial structure.
Frequently asked questions
Do I brush dentures like regular teeth?
Dentures should be cleaned often. The best way is to remove them and rinse both your dentures and your mouth to clean them of any debris. If some natural teeth do remain, brushing them is always suggested. Soak your dentures at night after brushing them. Always remember to brush your tongue and lightly brush the gums with a soft toothbrush. Special denture brushes should be used on the dentures. You should avoid using regular toothpaste on dentures, as it may be too abrasive.
Should dentures be worn at night?
Under normal circumstances it is considered best to remove them at night. Research has shown that removing the denture for at least eight hours during either the day or night allows the gum tissue to rest and allows normal stimulation and cleansing by the tongue and saliva, promoting better long-term health of gums.
How long will dentures last?
Dentures should last between 5 and 7 years. Just like natural teeth, dentures wear down and stain with age. Your mouth is constantly changing, and to make sure your dentures fit properly, they will need adjustments from time to time. Seeing your dentist yearly for a denture check-up is advised. You should always notify your dentist of any early signs of irritation, no matter how minor it may seem.
How will dentures affect my eating?
Adjusting to dentures may take some time, but you’ll get used to them before you know it. We will be happy to help you work through any challenges and explain the best ways to get used to biting and chewing with your new dentures.
Will dentures affect my appearance?
Your dentures are custom-crafted to suit you – making them comfortable and natural looking. At the beginning of the denture process, there is a “try-in” period where your teeth will be positioned in wax so you and your dentist can see what your dentures will look like. This is a great opportunity to discuss the appearance as well as make adjustments, so you’ll be happy with the end result. Many patients often notice that facial lines that were once pronounced are now softened due to dentures, giving them a more youthful look.
