Who Are Ideal Candidates for Dentures?

Were you aware that approximately one-quarter of adults aged 65 and above have lost all their teeth? Dentures serve as a common and reputable solution for missing teeth. They are so reliable and natural-looking that you may have interacted with someone wearing dentures without even realizing it. Do you believe you might benefit from dentures?

To be a suitable candidate for this restorative treatment, you should:

  1. Desire to replace several or all of your teeth.
  2. Be a non-smoker or abstain from using other tobacco products.
  3. Possess a healthy jawbone (we can assist with this!).
  4. Not experience dry mouth.
  5. Be committed to maintaining proper denture care at home.
  6. Continue regular visits to the dentist for routine check-ups, just as you would with natural teeth.

How Should I Maintain My Dentures?

Maintain your dentures through regular cleaning and check-ups. Even patients with flawless prosthetics need periodic dental visits. During your appointment, we will assess the condition and fit of your dentures, as well as examine your gums, tongue, jaw, and the overall health of your mouth. In short, we prioritize your oral health, not just your teeth.

To care for your dentures at home, follow these guidelines:

  1. Remove dentures overnight to allow your mouth to rest.
  2. Soak dentures in warm water, with or without denture cleanser.
  3. Avoid soaking dentures with metal clasps in anything other than warm water.
  4. When not wearing dentures, keep them in water to prevent drying out and warping. Do not use hot water for soaking.
  5. While your dentures are out, clean and gently massage your gums.
  6. If your toothbrush causes discomfort to your gums, run it under warm water or consider using a finger wrapped in a clean, damp cloth.
  7. If you have partial dentures, continue to brush your natural teeth as usual.

Frequently Asked Questions

Alternatives to dentures include dental implants, dental bridges, and removable partial dentures. Dental implants are a popular option for those seeking a more permanent solution, while dental bridges are used to replace one or a few missing teeth. Removable partial dentures are similar to full dentures but designed to replace only a portion of missing teeth.

Yes, there are several types of dentures available, including full dentures, partial dentures, implant-supported dentures, and immediate dentures. Full dentures replace all teeth, while partial dentures replace a few missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures are secured by dental implants for increased stability. Immediate dentures are placed immediately after tooth extraction.

The process typically involves a consultation with a dentist, impressions of your mouth, and a series of appointments for measurements, fittings, and adjustments. After the dentures are created, they are fitted and adjusted to ensure comfort and proper function.

Dentures can be used to replace a few missing teeth (partial dentures) or all teeth (full dentures). The choice depends on the extent of tooth loss and individual preferences. Partial dentures are a suitable option when only some teeth are missing.

To maintain dentures, it’s essential to remove and clean them daily. Brushing with a soft denture brush and denture cleaner helps remove food particles and prevent stains. Dentures should be soaked overnight in a denture cleaning solution. Regular dental check-ups are important for adjustments and to ensure a proper fit. Avoid using hot water, which can warp dentures, and handle them with care to prevent damage.

Been coming here for many years and always feel like part of the family. The staff is always pleasant and helpful with insurance and other questions. They also keep my records accurate when out of town using another dentist. Highly recommend this facility.

Katie Shook

Found this place when we moved to the area and it’s great! I’ve always been hesitant about going to the dentist but now I go every 6 months like I’m supposed to! They’re thorough, knowledgeable, gentle, and friendly. Dr. Anderson originally took photos and X-rays of my teeth to monitor any changes and reviewed everything with me after the first appointment. They actually care and always ask if you have any questions or concerns with your teeth. I recommend them to everyone!
