“Are Dentures Right for Me?”

Approximately 25% of individuals over 65 have lost some or all of their teeth. Dentures are a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth, enhancing both oral health and functionality.

We offer complete and partial denture sets that can be conveniently repaired or replaced as needed. Many people worry about the appearance of false teeth, but our dentures are designed to closely mimic the natural look and feel of real teeth, making it unlikely for others to notice you’re wearing them.

    Consider getting dentures if you meet the following criteria:
  • You need to replace multiple or all of your teeth
  • You are a non-smoker and do not use tobacco products
  • Your jawbone is in good health
  • You do not experience issues with dry mouth
  • You are committed to maintaining regular dental hygiene, including teeth cleanings

“How Do I Take Care of My Dentures?”

The best way to care for your dentures is to treat them like your natural teeth, which includes attending regular cleanings and dental examinations. These exams ensure your dentures fit well and that your gums, tongue, and jaw remain healthy.

    Additional Care Tips for Your Dentures:
  • Remove your dentures at night to give your mouth a break
  • Soak your dentures in lukewarm water
  • Use a quality denture cleaning solution
  • For dentures with metal parts, use only warm water for soaking
  • Store your dentures in water when not in use to prevent them from drying out and losing shape
  • Avoid soaking dentures in hot water
  • Gently clean and massage your gums when your dentures are out
  • If you have partial dentures, continue regular brushing for your natural teeth
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Choose a non-abrasive cleaning agent for your dentures

Yes, there are other solutions. Dental bridges can effectively close gaps caused by one to three missing teeth. Dental implants offer the flexibility to restore any number of missing teeth, though they generally involve a higher initial cost and specific health criteria for candidacy.

While it’s possible to wear your dentures while sleeping, it’s advisable to remove them at night. This allows you to clean your mouth, gums, and any remaining natural teeth, and provides your gums and jaw with a chance to rest.

After adapting to your dentures, you should be able to eat most foods. However, be cautious with hard or sticky foods like caramel, carrot sticks, and tough cuts of meat, as well as foods with small particles such as popcorn or seeded crackers. These may pose challenges and are best enjoyed occasionally.

Your upper dentures should create a secure suction with your gums, while the lower dentures should rest comfortably above your gums, staying in place effortlessly. Partial dentures should align well with your natural teeth, minimizing movement. Implant-supported dentures securely snap into position, ensuring stability. If you have concerns about the fit of your dentures, please schedule an appointment with us. We will assess the fit and make any necessary adjustments.
