Restore chewing ability
Dentures can help replace missing teeth, allowing patients to chew and enjoy their favorite foods more comfortably and effectively.
Fitting dentures can effectively enhance speech clarity by filling in gaps caused by missing teeth, which may have previously affected pronunciation or articulation.
Support facial structure
Replacing lost teeth, dentures preserve your face’s natural shape and structure, preventing unwanted sagging or sunken appearance.
Dentures can give you a complete, natural-looking smile, enhancing your self-esteem and allowing you to smile with confidence once again.
What are the different types of dentures available?
There are mainly two types of dentures: complete (full) dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, whereas partial dentures are used when some natural teeth still remain. Both types can be further classified into conventional and immediate dentures, depending on the time of fitting after tooth extraction.
How long does it take to get used to new dentures?
It typically takes a few weeks to a couple of months for patients to get fully accustomed to their new dentures. During this adjustment period, you may experience minor discomfort, increased saliva production, and difficulty in eating and speaking. However, these issues usually resolve as your mouth becomes more familiar with the dentures.
How do I clean and maintain my dentures?
To clean your dentures, remove them from your mouth and rinse off any loose debris. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush or a denture brush with a mild, non-abrasive denture cleaner or dish soap to gently brush all surfaces of the dentures. Avoid using toothpaste, as it can scratch the denture material. After cleaning, rinse the dentures thoroughly and soak them in a denture solution overnight to keep them moist.
How long do dentures last?
Dentures generally last between 5 to 8 years, although this can vary depending on the individual’s oral hygiene, the quality of the dentures, and the frequency of dental checkups. Over time, dentures may need to be relined or replaced due to normal wear and tear or changes in your mouth’s shape.
Can I sleep with my dentures in?
While it is possible to sleep with dentures, we recommend removing them at night to give your gums and jawbone a chance to rest. Removing dentures overnight also allows you to clean them thoroughly and soak them in a denture solution to maintain their shape and longevity.
Will dentures affect the way I eat and speak?
Initially, you may experience some challenges with eating and speaking as you adjust to your new dentures. To help with eating, start with soft foods cut into small pieces, and chew slowly using both sides of your mouth. Gradually introduce firmer foods as you become more comfortable. For speech, practice reading out loud and repeating challenging words to help train your mouth to adapt to the dentures.
