DENTURES

Why should we wear complete dentures?

Replacing missing teeth enhances your oral, general health and your appearance. Dentures also improve a person's ability to speak and to eat.

How Are Dentures Made?

The denture development process takes 6-7 appointments. Once your prosthodontist determines what type of appliance best suits you, the general steps are to:

  • Make a series of preliminary and final impressions of your jaw and take measurements of how your jaws relate to one another and how much space is between them.
  • Fabrication of models, wax patterns, and/or plastic patterns in the exact shape and position of the denture will be made. You will "try in" this model and the denture will be assessed for colour, shape, and fit before the final denture is cured.
  • Cast a final denture
  • Adjustments will be made as necessary.
  • Recall and assessment of denture

What Do New Dentures Feel Like?

Will Dentures Change How I Speak?

After getting dentures, you may have difficulty pronouncing certain words. If so, practice by saying the difficult words out loud. With practice and with time you will become accustomed to speaking properly with dentures.

Are Dentures Worn 24 Hours a Day?

Your dentist or prosthodontist will instruct you as to how long to wear dentures and when to remove them.

Should I Use a Denture Adhesive?

A denture adhesive may be considered under the following circumstances:

To enhance satisfaction with a properly constructed denture. Adhesives enhance retention, stability, bite force, and an individual's sense of security.

To assist individuals with dry mouth conditions that lessen denture adherence, such as individuals taking cold medications, those with neurologic disabilities including strokes, and the elderly.

To provide added stabilitv and security for those who place unusual demands on facial muscles, such as public speakers or musicians.

When Shouldn't Denture Adhesives Be Considered?

There are situations when denture adhesives should not be used. Those cases include:

When it is used as a "fix" for ill-fitting or poorly constructed dentures. If dentures begin to feel loose, cause discomfort or cause sores to develop, contact your dentist as soon as possible.

When a dentist has not evaluated dentures for a long time. Dentures rest on gum tissue and the jawbone, which shrink and deteriorate, respectively, over time. Therefore, the real problem might be a need for a denture adjustment or new dentures.

When oral hygiene practices cannot be sustained.

When any known allergy exists to the adhesive's ingredients.

How Are Denture Adhesives Applied?

Here are some tips to consider when applying denture adhesives:

Distribute the adhesive evenly on the tissue bearing surface of the denture.

Apply or reapply when necessary to provide the desired effect.
