We can also perform denture stabilization if you have existing dentures whose fit needs to be looked at.
Traditional dentures are either a partial or full set of false teeth that are removable. For most people, they are very comfortable and look natural. Because they are removable, they are easy to clean and maintain. It is recommended that they are removed at night while you are asleep.
Fixed dentures are implant-supported dentures that remain in your jaw. For people who are very sensitive to the feeling of traditional dentures, they are an excellent option. They are a very comfortable and stable alternative, making your mouth look and feel like new again.
The level of care required for either fixed or traditional dentures is slightly different. For bot, however, keeping up an excellent general oral care regime is important. Always brush your teeth twice a day.
If you have traditional dentures, you will need to use a special denture brush and cleanser to ensure that they stay free of bacteria and plaque. When you remove your dentures overnight, be sure to keep them submerged in a glass of water to help them retain their shape.
For fixed dentures, simply brush your teeth as normal with fluoride toothpaste and remember to floss around your dentures as well as your natural teeth.
Your new dentures will last you well as long as you take good care of them. Over time, however, both traditional and fixed dentures will become worn down and need to be replaced with new ones. Your gums also change shape and shrink as you age, making it necessary to visit us for denture stabilization and eventually new dentures.
Fixed dentures should last you at least 25 years with good care. Traditional dentures do not have as long of a lifespan and will need to be replaced earlier, with most dentists suggesting they are replaced every five to ten years.
