Frequently Asked Questions?
How are dentures fitted?
The dentist will examine your jaw and mouth to determine if you require dentures. The impression will be sent to the lab, where dentures can be made and returned to us within a few weeks. You will be able to test your dentures at your next appointment. Once we have assessed the fit, we will make sure that you are comfortable and happy with your dentures.
Are dentures painful?
False teeth can be made to fit your mouth, so they shouldn’t hurt. It takes some time to get used to them. If you had had your teeth removed before your dentures were fitted, they might feel uncomfortable for the first three months. After this time, your dentures will be able to be relined and remade to match the permanent shape of your gums.
What is the process of getting dentures?
Typically dentures take a few weeks and 2 to 3 appointments.
- Impressions – an impression is taken of your gums and teeth.
- Bite Registration – we will measure how you bite and select your new teeth.
- Try-in – you get to see your dentures and try them on before they are actually completed.
- Finish – you get to wear your new teeth home.
How to care for dentures?
Dentures can’t be whitened like natural teeth, as dentures are made from plastic. Properly cleaning your dentures every day will help to reduce staining. Brushing your dentures with a soft toothbrush or denture brush will keep them from getting permanently stained. Use a gentle soap or denture paste to clean your tooth. Gently scrub all surfaces, both inside and outside, with a soft brush. Most stains can be removed with a variety of denture cleaners that you can buy from the store. Do not use bleach on your dentures unless your dentist gives you special instructions on using bleach.
Do not brush your dentures using normal toothpaste. Toothpaste is intended to be used on the teeth. They often contain chemicals and materials that whiten and strengthen teeth. However, they can damage dentures made from durable plastic. The plastic is not as strong and durable as enamel. To clean your dentures daily, you should use a dishwashing liquid and a special brush for them. After thoroughly cleaning them, soak your dentures overnight in a water-based cleaning agent.
