What Do Dentures Do?

Tooth loss is preventable but common, especially as adults age. Common causes include certain medicines or poor dental habits. However, regardless of the circumstances that led to you losing some (or all) of your adult teeth, our team is here and ready to help.

Dentures help people who have lost their teeth to eat, speak, and smile the way they used to. Additionally, dentures restore your facial structure to avoid the “sunken in” look that can occur when teeth are extracted or lost due to a medical issue or other problems.

Our trusted dentists and staff have the experience and compassion necessary to make you feel comfortable when you decide to have impressions for dentures.

The Process of Getting Dentures

When you set up your appointment to get fitted for dentures, you typically will arrive at our office early in the morning to make impressions, have extractions completed, and receive dentures by the end of the day. Six months after your initial appointment, you’ll be ready for your final denture! This denture locks into place, unlike removable dentures most people think of when they determine they might need to have them.

Once your final dentures are in place, you’ll no longer have to worry about speaking, eating, or smiling. You’ll feel confident in your dentures that will last for many years to come and allow you to maintain good oral hygiene in a simple, effective manner.

Maintaining Your Dentures

It’s important to take care of your dentures so they last a long time. The tips below can help you along the way!

  1. Your mouth might feel weird in the first few weeks following denture placement, but that is normal! You might also develop some sore spots about 24 hours after you have new dentures places. A readjustment might be necessary for the first set of temporary dentures, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have this issue.
  2. It might take a few days for your new “bit” to feel normal, and that is normal. Adjustments to the surface of your teeth where they meet in the bit can be adjusted 24 hours after, and again a week after, your fitting to improve your comfort.
  3. Maintaining your dentures is simple after your final fitting. Simply use a water pick two times a day for the most effective cleaning. We also recommend cleanings twice a year at our office to maintain your dentures.
