Cosmetic Dentistry Dentures FAQ

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth. They can be either partial or complete, depending on whether they replace some or all of the teeth.

What types of dentures are available?

There are two main types of dentures: partial dentures, which replace some teeth and are supported by existing teeth and gums, and complete dentures, which replace all teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.

How long do dentures last?

Dentures typically last about 5-10 years, depending on the quality of care and the materials used. Regular dental check-ups can help ensure they fit properly and are in good condition.

How do I clean my dentures?

Clean your dentures daily with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive cleanser. Soak them in a denture cleaning solution when not wearing them, and rinse them with water before putting them back in your mouth.

Can I eat anything with dentures?

You can eat most foods with dentures, but you may need to adjust gradually. Start with softer foods and cut them into smaller pieces to make eating easier.

How do I know if my dentures fit properly?

Dentures should fit snugly and comfortably. If you experience slipping, discomfort, or pain, consult your dentist for adjustments.

Can I sleep with my dentures?

It is generally recommended to remove dentures before sleeping to allow your gums and tissues to rest and promote oral health.

What should I do if my dentures break or become damaged?

If your dentures break or become damaged, contact your dentist immediately. Avoid attempting to repair them yourself, as improper repairs can damage the dentures or harm your mouth.

How often should I visit the dentist for check-ups?

It’s recommended to visit the dentist for check-ups at least once a year or as advised by your dentist. This allows the dentist to check the fit of your dentures and assess your overall oral health.

Will my dentures need adjustments over time?

Yes, dentures may need adjustments over time due to changes in the shape of your gums and jaw. Regular dental visits will help ensure your dentures continue to fit well.

Can I use regular toothpaste to clean my dentures?

No, regular toothpaste can be too abrasive for dentures. Use a denture cleaner or mild soap and water instead.

If you have any further questions about dentures, your dentist can provide personalized advice and guidance on caring for your dentures and maintaining good oral health.
