Tips for using your complete dentures
- Chew on both sides of your mouth: If you distribute your food evenly on both sides of your mouth when you chew, it helps keep your dentures more stable.
- Chew slowly and completely before you swallow: Don’t try to consume big pieces of unchewed food as this poses a greater choking risk.
- Take small bites: Cut foods like fresh fruits and vegetables into very thin slices or chop them into tiny pieces so they are easier to chew. Alternatively, cook them before serving to make them easier to consume.
- Don’t forget liquids: Whole grain bread and cereals are nutritious choices, but they may stick to your teeth. Don’t forget to sip water or other liquids when you eat to make food easier to chew and swallow.
- Avoid sticky and gummy foods: Certain treats, including taffy, caramel, marshmallows, peanut butter, and raisins can adhere to the upper and lower molars (chewing teeth) and displace your dentures.
Most permanent dentures last about 10-12 years, but this depends on several factors.
While you might think dentures are meant to last a lifetime, this simply isn’t true! Denture teeth will wear down over time from regular daily use. Eventually, it diminishes their ability to work properly. It’s important to take good care of your dentures to help them last, but don’t hesitate to replace them when it’s time.
You wouldn’t drive your car for years without expecting to need maintenance performed on the engine, would you? Your dentures need maintenance too! After all, they are one of the engines to your health. They need to be assessed regularly by your denturist to maintain the best function possible for years to come.
Dentures are a practical option when your natural teeth can no longer function how they’re supposed to. There are many reasons this can happen, including medications, cancer, infections, physical accidents, or injuries. But regardless of the cause, dentures are the same smart solution.
Before you get dentures, the extraction of natural teeth that have been assessed as no longer usable is required. Or, you can get a partial denture to replace missing teeth if you still have some working natural teeth.
During your oral examination, your denturist assesses your needs and discusses expectations with you before starting treatment to ensure you have an optimal outcome.
The process of getting dentures can be different for each person. Some patients need as few as three appointments over the span of a couple of weeks. For more complex cases, it can take several weeks and appointments. With modern technologies like digital dentistry, patients can restore their smiles in less time and with less invasive appointments. In some cases, we won’t even need to take impressions!
It might be tricky to determine the quality of your denture at first sight. But generally speaking, the more natural the tooth appears, the better its quality. Another good way to determine the quality of your dentures is by asking your denturist about the materials they use. If you don’t take steps to ensure you’re getting high-quality dentures, you’ll notice premature wear or fracture of your denture.
Like other dental services, the cost of partial denture service varies. This cost will depend on the denture clinic and the technology and materials used. The easiest way to determine a specific detailed cost is to book a free, no-obligation consultation with us.
