Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are a removable solution to replace lost teeth. Dentures are customized to provide strong support and aid in jaw function. They come in partial and complete varieties to best fit your needs. 

Partial dentures treat and replace a handful of missing teeth, whereas complete dentures remedy the entire top or bottom set or both. 

Dentures are a great, nonsurgical alternative to other restoration procedures, such as dental implants. They’re indistinguishable and demonstrate a seamless transition from dentures to natural teeth. 


What can I expect when getting dentures?

The process of dentures may take several appointments to ensure the best fit. First, your health care provider makes a series of impressions and takes several measurements. This allows for the creation of prototype dentures with your unique mouth shape and teeth alignments. 

The team at CAHEP will have you try on this initial set of dentures several times and make necessary adjustments to ensure they provide maximum support and comfort. Afterward, the doctor administers a finalized set of dentures. 


How do I care for dentures?

Your health care provider supplies specific instructions for you to follow once you get your dentures. However, there are some general guidelines you can follow, such as:

  • Removing and rinsing dentures after eating
  • Cleaning your mouth after removing dentures
  • Brushing your dentures as you would natural teeth
  • Soaking your dentures overnight in a denture-safe, cleaning solution
  • Scheduling regular follow-up visits to the doctor

Following these steps helps prolong the longevity of your dentures and reduces the need for additional treatment.


My dentures aren’t fitting properly; what should I do?

The alignment of your teeth and jaw can change over time. Dentures may require occasional office visits for adjustments. 

Additionally, denture adhesives help secure dentures in place. This proves beneficial for those who speak a lot during daily activities, such as teachers and public speakers. There are a variety of powder and paste adhesives available on the market. The team at CAHEP can help you navigate the options.
