Replace or Repair Dentures for a Comfortable Fit
Loose dentures and discomfort from dentures are common problems, but not to be ignored. Over time your mouth changes, and dentures that once fit well will need to be repaired or replaced.
On average, dentures are replaced every 3-8 years, but it’s best to speak with your dentist to determine if your dentures need replacement or repair.
Do You Need Dentures?
If you are missing a few of your teeth, you may consider getting dentures. There are other, more permanent cosmetic options such as bridges and implants, but dentures provide greater flexibility, especially for people who are missing more than a few teeth. The process of getting dentures also takes less time than other cosmetic procedures. Dentures provide a safe and affordable solution for tooth loss.
When all teeth have been lost or removed, a complete denture is used to replace those teeth. Complete dentures are held in place to the gum by suction. Because bones and gums shrink after the removal of teeth, you will need to go to your dentist routinely to make sure your dentures fit properly.
Partial dentures cover only a section where teeth are missing, and are usually a set of teeth fixed to a gum-colored plastic base. A partial denture is held in place by the remaining healthy teeth and gums. They are comfortable and secure, and prevent existing teeth from changing position.
