Candidates For Dentures

Did you know that roughly one in four adults aged 65 or older have lost all of their teeth? Dentures are a widely accepted and effective solution for tooth loss, known for their reliability and natural appearance. It’s quite possible you’ve had conversations with denture wearers without even realizing it. Do you think you could benefit from dentures?

To be considered a suitable candidate for this restorative treatment, you should meet the following criteria:

  • Have a desire to replace multiple or all of your teeth.
  • Not smoke or use tobacco products.
  • Maintain a healthy jawbone (we can assist with this!).
  • Not suffer from dry mouth.
  • Be willing to diligently care for your dentures at home.
  • Continue to schedule regular dental check-ups, just as you would for natural teeth.

How should I care for my dentures? Proper denture care involves regular cleaning and check-ups. Even individuals with flawless prosthetics should periodically visit their dentist. During your appointment, we’ll assess your dentures’ fit and examine your gums, tongue, jaw, and overall oral health. In summary, we prioritize your oral well-being, not just your teeth.

How should you care for your dentures at home?

  • Remove dentures overnight to allow your mouth to rest.
  • Soak dentures in warm water, with or without denture cleanser.
  • Do not soak dentures with metal clasps in anything other than warm water.
  • Store dentures in water when not in use to prevent drying out and warping.
  • Never soak them in hot water.
  • While your dentures are out, clean and massage your gums.
  • If your toothbrush causes discomfort, run it under warm water or try using a finger wrapped in a clean, damp cloth.
  • If you have partial dentures, continue to brush your natural teeth as usual.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you have 1 to 3 missing teeth, dental bridges can effectively restore the gap, whereas dental implants offer a solution for replacing any quantity of missing teeth. Keep in mind that dental implants typically entail a greater initial investment and necessitate meeting certain health prerequisites to qualify for the treatment.

By consistently caring for and maintaining your dentures, you can expect them to remain in good condition for a period spanning 5 to 10 years. Furthermore, it’s important to acknowledge that changes in your mouth’s shape and structure can occur over time, potentially prompting the decision to obtain a completely new set of dentures.

Wearing dentures to bed is an option, but it’s recommended that you refrain from doing so. Instead, consider the beneficial routine of taking them out at night. This practice enables you to soak your dentures for cleaning, clean your mouth, gums, and any remaining natural teeth, and provides a necessary break for your gums and jaw.

Properly fitting dentures should adhere to your upper gums with suction, while the lower dentures should sit comfortably above your gums, remaining firmly in place. Partial dentures should align seamlessly with your natural teeth, minimizing any noticeable movement. For those with implant-supported dentures, they securely snap into position, offering exceptional stability. If you have doubts about the fit of your dentures, don’t hesitate to reach out and book an appointment. We’ll gladly examine your dentures, ensuring they fit correctly, and make any required adjustments.

As you become accustomed to your dentures, you’ll likely discover that you can enjoy a diverse range of foods. Nevertheless, it’s essential to be aware that certain foods can be more challenging for denture wearers. Foods with hard or sticky textures, like caramel, carrot sticks, or tough meat cuts, as well as items containing small particles, such as popcorn or seeded crackers, may require extra care and consideration. These foods might be best enjoyed as occasional treats.

Cazes Family Dentistry is the most wonderful place for your teeth!! :-) I have some anxiety surrounding dental work, and they are just so wonderful. Courtney is the best dental hygienist- she is kind and calm; she will slow down if anything becomes too much, and she is so understanding and patient. She’s also really nice to chat to beforehand. Dr. Emma- what can I say about my favorite dentist? Dr. Emma got me over my initial fear when I brought my then 5 year old to her. She was so good with my daughter that when I found out she took adults I felt comfortable confessing that it had been YEARS since I had gone to the dentist. We worked through my anxiety and her positive attitude, kindness, and compassion has kept me coming back consistently over the last two years. I hope you consider Cazes for all your dental needs!
