Benefits of dentures
Custom-made cosmetic dentures
Many dentures are made by taking one impression of the person’s mouth and the denture being finished and given to the patient immediately. We take the time to have custom tailored trays made from the first impression so the second impression we take is a far more accurate copy of your mouth. This means the denture will fit better. We will have an appointment to first try out the denture to make sure you are happy and makes any changes. The result is a denture that will make you look younger and give you more confidence!
Getting used to your dentures varies from person to person, but our patients do seem to get used to them very quickly, but for some it does take a little longer. It can be helpful to use a denture fixative for the first few weeks.
Cleaning your dentures
You should clean your dentures twice a day and will need to remove your dentures before cleaning. Brush them with a denture brush and toothpaste. It is also recommended to soak them regularly in a special cleaning solution.
Although dentures may be removed and cleaned outside the mouth, your gums will still need to be cleaned every morning and evening. If wearing partial dentures, it is even more important that you brush your teeth thoroughly every day. This will help stop tooth decay and gum disease that can lead to you losing more of your teeth.
You should take your dentures out at night to allow the gums to rest.
