What types of dentures are available?
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. Complete dentures replace all the teeth and rest on the gums. Partial Dentures replace some of the teeth. They can attach to existing teeth and cover the gums of missing teeth.
What is the procedure?
What are the benefits of treatment?
How will I feel after treatment?
It’s completely normal to experience some issues until you become accustomed to wearing your new dentures which can take up to a few weeks.
Continue to visit your dentist for regular check-ups to ensure your Dentures aren’t loose. Daily wear and tear as well as any changes in your gums may loosen your Dentures.
Is it possible to have them put in the same day as extractions?
Yes, it is possible, but you may experience some discomfort where the extractions were performed.
Can I eat normally with dentures?
It can take a few weeks to become fully accustomed to wearing Dentures and get used to chewing hard or sticky food.
How do I care for my dentures?
Can I sleep in my dentures?
Yes, but it is preferable to remove them overnight to give your gums an opportunity to relax from the pressure of wearing them during the day and to maintain hygiene.
How long do dentures last?
With good oral care, Dentures can last several years. Dentures must be cleaned every day to maintain proper oral hygiene. They will, eventually, need to be replaced due to wear and tear and eventual gum and bone loss related to ageing.
