What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable devices used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are designed to mimic the appearance and function of natural teeth, allowing individuals with missing teeth to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Dentures typically consist of a gum-colored acrylic base that fits snugly over the gums and supports replacement teeth made of acrylic or porcelain.

There are two types of dentures: full dentures, which replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, and partial dentures, which replace one or more missing teeth in a row and are supported by the remaining natural teeth. Dentures are custom-made to fit the unique contours of each patient's mouth and are typically removable for cleaning and maintenance.

How will I know if I need dentures?

Dentures are recommended by our dentists to patients of all ages more frequently than you might expect. While you may have assumed that they are only suitable for certain types of patients or seniors, the decision to choose this tooth replacement option is based on several factors specific to your situation, as determined by you and your dentist.

Regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene habits can help prevent the need for dentures. However, if you have a history of dental problems or have experienced dental issues in the past, dentures may be a suitable option for you in the future.

How do I care for my dentures?

Every night you need to take your dentures out. We advise patients to rinse them thoroughly then use a denture brush to remove any food particles before rinsing them again. You also need to brush your gums, tongue, and the roof of your mouth with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste. You can use an antiseptic mouthwash afterwards to kill any lingering bacteria and improve your breath. Your dentures should soak all night then be placed back in the mouth in the morning.
