Are Your Dentures Up to Date?
As we age, our mouths change, so you can expect to update your dentures every few years. As a rule of thumb, most dentures need to be replaced every 3-8 years. If your dentures feel uncomfortable, this may be a good indication that it’s time for a new set. To be sure, consult with your dentist.
Need Your First Pair of Dentures?
For those missing teeth, dentures are a cost-effective option. Since they can be removed, dentures are more flexible than other cosmetic options like crowns or implants. Dentures tend to be more affordable than permanent appliances, especially if you are missing more than one tooth.
If you are missing both top and bottom teeth, a complete set of dentures may be for you. Your dentures fit in your mouth using suction, and you will have to visit the dentist regularly to ensure a good fit.
If you still have most of your natural teeth, partial dentures are a good option. Your natural teeth and gums will support the partial denture. This single piece only covers a few teeth in your mouth, unlike complete dentures.
