They are a flexible and affordable tooth-replacement option for all age groups. Dentures can be used to replace as few as one tooth or all teeth across the upper or lower part of your mouth. They are the best choice because they can be fitted over existing teeth and are removable for cleaning and regular checkups. Here at our The Implant Center at Comprehensive Dental dental clinic, you will get the best advice from our experts concerning dentures and dental health.

What is the Process for Obtaining a Denture?

Following extractions or tooth loss, it is vital for the gums and bone to heal before a denture can be fitted. It typically takes several months of healing time during which your gums shrink back as part of the healing process. During this time, a temporary, healing denture may be worn.

Once enough time has elapsed since losing one of your teeth, typically several months, we take impressions of your mouth in order to build a custom-made denture that will be your permanent denture and fit better than the temporary ones.

How Does A Dentist Ensure My Denture Is Fitting Properly?

Even the best denture needs to be checked regularly to ensure that it still fits properly. In the case of an upper denture, this is usually relatively easy. If it becomes loose and begins to move around in your mouth, it is time to see the dentist.

With a lower denture, it is not so simple. If a lower denture begins moving around, many people have the tendency to tighten their muscles in an attempt to keep them from moving. This will cause the muscles and tissues in your mouth and chin to become sore and irritated. It also can lead to other problems such as poor digestion and speech difficulties.

If you have difficulty with your lower denture, consult our dentist for a checkup. We can make adjustments or reline the dentures to fit more comfortably and securely. Also, before receiving your dentures, it is wise to inform us if they are comfortable or not to avoid inconveniences and several dental visits.

Do I Wear the Denture at Night?

Dentures are typically not worn at night to give the soft tissues in your mouth a chance to recover. This is because it can irritate them if you don't take the denture out and let the gums rest.

The exception, however, is when you're first wearing healing dentures after receiving an extraction or getting fitted with new ones. You should wear these at night at first, but after two to five days have passed you need to take out the teeth when you are sleeping so as not to restrict blood vessels that provide nourishment for tissues during the healing process.

What Is the Correct Process of Cleaning My Denture?

With proper care and maintenance, your denture can last for years. This means that you should clean and rinse them well using lukewarm water. Remove them carefully over a sink and gently brush to avoid fracturing them.
