“Are Dentures Right for Me?”

Around one-quarter of adults over the age of 65 are missing some or all of their teeth. Dentures are a common and effective solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring health and functionality to the mouth.

Dentures are available in both full and partial sets to cover any amount of tooth loss and can easily be replaced or repaired if needed. Are you concerned about your appearance? Our dentures are fabricated to achieve a natural look and feel. Most people won’t even realize you’re wearing a dental prosthesis.

You may want to consider dentures if the following conditions apply to you:
  • You need to replace several or all of your teeth
  • You don’t smoke or use tobacco products
  • You have a healthy jawbone
  • You don’t suffer from dry mouth.
  • You’re committed to attending regular teeth cleanings

“How do I take care of my dentures?”

The best way to take care of your dentures is to treat them like your natural teeth. That means attending regular cleanings and dental examinations. These exams are important for ensuring that your dentures fit well and that your gums, tongue, and jaw stay healthy.

Other tips for taking care of your dentures:
  • Remove dentures overnight to let your mouth rest
  • Soak dentures in warm water
  • Use a good denture cleanser
  • Do not soak dentures with metal clasps in anything but warm water
  • When not wearing dentures, keep them in water so they don’t dry out and warp
  • NEVER soak dentures in hot water.
  • With dentures removed, clean and massage your gums
  • If you have partial dentures, brush your natural teeth as usual
  • Brush with a soft-bristled brush
  • Use non-abrasive cleaner

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental bridges can be used to restore a gap caused by 1 to 3 missing teeth. Any number of missing teeth can be restored using dental implants. Dental implants typically have a higher initial investment cost and certain health requirements to qualify as a candidate for treatment.
With routine care and maintenance, your dentures should be good for 5 - 10 years. Aside from wear and tear on the dentures themselves, your mouth also changes over time and you may eventually decide it’s best to get fitted for a completely new set.
Yes, you can wear your dentures to bed but its recommended that you don’t. You should get into the habit of taking them out at night to soak so you can clean your mouth, gums and remaining natural teeth and then give your gums and jaw a chance to rest.
Your top dentures should suction to your gums. Your bottom dentures float above your gums but stay in place easily. Partial dentures should stay in line with natural teeth without moving very much. Implant-supported dentures snap in place and remain stable. If you’re questioning the fit of your denture, you are welcome to book an appointment so we can check your fit and make adjustments as needed.
After you’ve had some time to adjust to your dentures you should be able to eat almost anything. There are some foods that are hard on your dentures or that might cause rubbing or irritation. Foods that are hard or sticky like caramel, carrot sticks or a tough cut of meat or foods that contain little particles like popcorn or seeded crackers might present some challenge and should perhaps be enjoyed only as an occasional treat.
