As time passes, our mouths change. While every patient is different, a common rule of thumb is that you should replace your dentures every 3-8 years. If you think your dentures need to be replaced, it’s time to meet with a dental professional.
Getting Your First Set
If you’re looking for your first set of dentures, you’ve made a good choice! Dentures are a flexible, conservative solution to cosmetic ailments. It is especially cost-effective for those who are missing multiple teeth.
These fixtures use suction to stay in place and they take the place of an entire row of your teeth. After your natural teeth are removed, your dentist will wait for your gums to heal before custom-fitting a new set of dentures to your mouth. After you’re settled with your new dentures, you’ll need to make it into the office for regular check-ups to ensure that your dentures fit properly.
These appliances replace only a portion of your missing teeth. They are similar to dental bridges in that your dentist will use your natural teeth that are on either side of your gap in order to hold your partial dentures in place. They use internal attachments, hooking onto adjacent crowns that you are able to remove.
