1. When Should I Replace My Dentures?
Dentures don’t last forever. The teeth in your denture will wear and stain over time. The tissue in your mouth is undergoing constant changes as well as the supporting bone shrinks. Dentures usually last between 5 to 7 years and need to be relined every 2 years. Over time dentures become worn and don’t fit as well, so it’s important to reline them regularly. The better you follow your denture care instructions, the longer your replacement teeth will last.
The following are signs that your denture needs attention:
- It does not adhere to your gums as well as it used to
- It is loose, does not cut food well
- It makes your face look older
- It causes discomfort or pain
- It looks yellowed and stained
2. What is the Cost of New Dentures?
What type of denture do you need or want? Standard Dentures? Precision Dentures? Denture Implants? Partial Dentures? Don’t look for the lowest price for something so important to your daily life and your health. Schedule a consultation with Waterdown Denture Clinic – it’s free, and we’ll give you a price estimate before we provide any further treatment.
3. Are Lower Dentures Always a Problem?
The Lower Denture has less stabilizing surface to rest upon. There is no broad palate surface (roof of the mouth) as in an upper denture.
Loss of jaw bone over time brings the lower denture into closer contact with tissue extensions called frenum attachments which create dislodging forces.
While these problems are inherent to lower dentures, every person is different and not affected in the same way.
Implants are the best solution for stabilizing a lower denture.
4. What if My Denture Breaks? I Need Teeth!
Even though dentures are fabricated from extremely durable materials, they will wear out, break or a tooth may pop out. In fact, it is frequently not a matter of “if” but “when” it will become broken, lost or damaged. One can be assured that a problem will likely happen when least expected! Do not “super glue” your denture, as all adhesives contain harmful additives. It is a short-lived fix. Waterdown Denture Clinic can properly fix your dentures in a matter of hour(s).
Spare Dentures can bridge the gap of being without a regular denture while it is being repaired. Such an interim prosthesis may be relined and adjusted in advance, in order to fit the changing shape of an individual’s jaw, making it ready to use at a moment’s notice.
5. Are Dentures Affected by Over-the-Counter and Prescription Medications?
6. Why a Denturist and Not a Dentist?
Denturists do all their laboratory work on the premises, which ensures consistent and personal quality of care. Denturists provide the most cost- and time-effective denture treatment.
