  • How do I clean dentures?

    For effective denture care, it’s essential to clean them daily to maintain both their appearance and your oral health. Here are simple steps to ensure your dentures stay in optimal condition:

    1. Rinse After Eating – Remove and gently rinse your dentures to clear away food particles.
    2. Brush Daily – Use a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive cleanser to carefully brush all surfaces of the dentures without scratching them.
    3. Soak Overnight – Dentures need moisture to retain their shape. Soak them in a mild denture-soaking solution overnight.
    4. Rinse Before Wearing – After soaking, rinse the dentures thoroughly under water before putting them back in your mouth.
    5. Schedule Regular Dental Checkups – Visit your dentist regularly to ensure your dentures are in good condition and properly fitted to your gums.

    By following these guidelines, you can help extend the life of your dentures and enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile.

  • What are full dentures?

    Full dentures are a complete set of artificial teeth and gums, created for individuals who have lost their natural teeth due to conditions like tooth decay or gum disease. These dentures feature a thin, gum-colored acrylic base that fits over your gums, with porcelain or acrylic teeth that provide a natural appearance. Our experienced team can help customize your dentures to enhance or restore your smile according to your preferences. Additionally, for improved stability and a more natural feel, dentures can be secured using dental implants, which can either permanently fix or allow for removable dentures. This option not only offers better retention but also increases the longevity of the dentures.

  • What are partial dentures?

    Partial dentures are an economical solution to replace the missing teeth and fill in the spaces, improving chewing ability and the confidence to smile. A partial denture in place will also help keep your natural teeth from shifting, lowering the risk of losing those teeth in the future.

    Most partial dentures contain a thin metal framework that is designed to rest close to your gums and allow for a smooth, non-bulky feel. The framework is supported by your natural teeth to provide a reliable, secure appliance that is easy to use. Where teeth are missing, natural-looking replacement teeth are attached to the frame, and gum-colored acrylic is used to make the appliance blend with your mouth. We know your mouth and your needs are unique, and your dentist will work with skilled technicians to create a solution that is comfortable.

    With advances in technology, implants can also be used to support removable partial dentures, improving the fit while reducing the size of the appliance. Dentures inherently bring some challenges, especially to new wearers. We work to minimize everyday frustrations to the lowest level possible.

    We look forward to discussing your options to make your mouth full again and to give you back a confident, glowing smile!

  • Are dentures painful to wear?

    While dentures may initially feel uncomfortable or cause minor soreness as your mouth adapts to the new appliance, this discomfort is usually temporary. With appropriate adjustments and adherence to the wearing schedule recommended by your dentist, any soreness should gradually decrease. Most wearers find that dentures become comfortable to use over time.

  • How often should I replace my dentures?

    Dentures typically need replacement every 5 to 10 years due to wear and changes in your mouth’s shape. The lifespan of your dentures can also vary based on the material quality and how well you maintain them. Regular check-ups with your dentist are essential to assess your dentures’ fit and condition and determine if they need to be replaced or relined.
