Using dentures to replace missing teeth is not only great for your oral health; it's a great way to look and feel younger! Today, there are a variety of natural-looking and comfortable dentures for patients who need to replace missing teeth. Made of a gum-colored plastic resin or acrylic base and either resin or porcelain replacement teeth, dentures are custom designed to fit your mouth. If you are missing several or all of your teeth on the upper or lower jaw, full dentures may be your best option. Partial dentures, which can be either fixed or removable, are great for patients who have several missing teeth scattered along the upper or lower jaw.

The process of getting dentures may take a few months, and several dental visits. In some cases however, same-day dentures are also possible. With same-day dentures, the dentures are created right in the dentist's office instead of at an offsite laboratory. Same-day dentures aren't for everyone though. If your dentures require a lot of customization, same-day dentures may not be right for you.

Just as with your natural teeth, dentures require daily maintenance. With regular wear and tear, your dentures can last 5-7 years. During that time, you may need periodic denture relines to accommodate changes in the contours of your mouth. Regular denture relines involve resurfacing the base to ensure that your dentures fit and function perfectly. If you break your dentures, it's critical to bring them to your dentist for professional denture repair. Home denture repair kits can cause more damage, and be even more costly to fix.

FAQ Questions

What happens the first week of wearing dentures?

It's normal to develop sore spots during the first few days of wearing dentures. You may also have more saliva. Gum tissue contracts as it heals.

How long will my gums be sore after getting dentures?

When a patient first gets dentures, it can take up to 30 days to get used to wearing the denture. During this time, patients may struggle with learning how to chew and speak with their new teeth, as well as experience soreness and pain on their gums from the denture.

Can you wear broken dentures?

Patients who have ill-fitting or damaged dentures are advised to call and make an appointment about denture repair right away. Continuing to wear irritating or broken dentures can do more harm than good. If your dentures develop problems, contact us right away.

How long do dentures last?

It is recommended you replace your dentures every 5-7 years for proper fit and appearance. Denture teeth can wear down and stain faster than natural teeth, and tissues in your mouth may change over time.

How often should you go to the dentist with dentures?

It is recommended that people with dentures visit the dentist twice a year or more frequently if recommended by your dentist. During these appointments, the dentist will check the fit of your dentures and make any necessary adjustments to ensure they remain comfortable.
