Tips for using your full dentures
- Chew on both sides of your mouth. Distribute your food evenly on both sides in the back of your mouth when you chew, this will help keep your dentures more stable while you eat.
- Chew slowly and thoroughly before you swallow. Don’t gulp down large pieces of unchewed food because you could choke on them.
- Take smaller bites. Slice fresh fruits and vegetables into very thin slices or chop them into tiny pieces so they are easy to chew or cook them before serving.
- Drink with your meals. Whole grain bread and cereals are good for you, but they may stick to your teeth. Eat them with liquids to make them easier to chew and swallow.
- Avoid sticky or gummy foods. These include taffy, caramel, marshmallows treats, peanut butter and raisins. These can adhere to the upper and lower molars (chewing teeth) and dislodge your dentures.
Everyone is different, but on an average about 5-7 years (some people less, some people more). It depends on many factors.
Some people think that dentures should last a lifetime–nothing could be further from the truth! Denture teeth wear down over time from daily use, diminishing their ability to do their job properly. It is crucial to maintain and replace them as needed.
Maintenance is a must for successful denture wear. One would never drive their car for years and not expect to have maintenance performed on the engine! Your dentures are one of the engines to your health, and need to be assessed regularly by the denturist in order to maintain the best function possible for you and your dentures.
The need for dentures arises when your natural teeth can no longer function like they should. This can have many causes, such as medications, infections, cancer or physical accident or injury. The reasons are varied but all require the same solution.
Getting dentures requires either the extraction of natural teeth that have been assessed as no longer usable or they replace some or all teeth that are already missing.
In having an oral examination completed, our denturist will be able to assess your needs and discuss expectations with you before beginning treatment in order to have a successful positive outcome.
The process of getting dentures does vary from person to person and case to case. Some may take as little as three appointments over the span of a couple of weeks, or some more complex cases can take several weeks. Thanks to new technologies such as digital dentistry, patients can have their smile ready in less time and with less invasive appointments, and in some cases, taking an impression is not needed!
At first site or appearance, it may be difficult to assess the quality of your denture.
The more natural the artificial tooth appears is one sign that it is of better quality. The best way to determine the quality of your denture is by simply asking your denturist what materials they are using.
Unfortunately, you may not know until it is too late, and you notice premature wear, or fracture of your denture.
Much like anything else, the cost of denture service varies. This cost varies from clinic to clinic, depending on the technology and materials used. The best way to know a specific detailed cost is to book a free, no-obligation consultation.
The best dentures to have made are those crafted with precision techniques for obtaining your specific oral measurements, including precise moulds and jaw measurements. Plus, utilizing premium materials.
Yes! The higher the quality and the techniques and materials used will render a more natural smile.
