How to maintain my denture?

Maintenance of denture is crucial to prevent any oral infections and bad breath. Adhere to the following instructions to maintain your dentures -
  • The denture has to be rinsed with water to remove any food particles. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste and soft bristle toothbrush (to avoid any scratching) to clean the denture.
  • Clean your mouth thoroughly during brushing – including your gums, lips, and tongue to clear any plaque.
  • Place the dentures in a container filled with water to prevent them from changing shape when you do not wear your dentures.
  • Dental wearers may sometimes use adhesives. Adhesives are available in many forms: creams, powders, sheets, strips, and liquids. Please read the instructions and use them exactly as instructed when using one of these items. Dr. Adatrow will prescribe the right denture cleansers or adhesives for you. Our dental team will provide you with all the instructions for your denture maintenance.

How often should I have a dental check-up?

Periodical dental examinations and professional cleaning of your teeth are crucial for your teeth and gums' health. Your dental team will periodically examine your teeth and oral cavity, including your tongue and cheeks. These tests are critical to enabling the dental team stage to spot any infection or even mouth cancer at the earliest. If you have a complete denture, check with our dental to see how frequently you have to visit our dental office.

How long will my dentures last?

They can last many years if you handle your dentures properly. However, because of regular wear or an alteration of jaw shape, your prostheses need to be relined or recreated. Crests of bone and gum can decrease with age leading your teeth to meet differently. Loose or ill-fitting dentures can cause pain, including sores and infections, and health problems. A loose or poor-fitting tooth can make it harder to eat and speak. Before they cause problems, it is necessary to replace or adjust poorly fitted dentures.

What will be the cost of dentures?

The number of teeth to be replaced and the denture type would determine the procedure's cost. Moreover, the benefits of your insurance plan would determine the price of your procedure. You can schedule a consultation with us to determine the ideal treatment for you and then check with your insurance coverage. You can approach us with any questions you might have. Our team is here to serve you.

Will my insurance cover my dentures?

Either your dental or medical or both might cover your dentures based on the reason for your need for the treatment. You can call your insurance agency and discuss your insurance benefits; we can help you in doing the same. If you have any other questions, you can always reach out to us.

What is the role of oral hygiene for a denture wearer?

Immaculate oral hygiene is essential for the health of your gums. Every morning brush your gums and tongue with a soft-bristled brush to promote your gums' blood circulation and help remove plaque before you insert your denture.

Are dentures my only choice?

No, other choices to consider are bridges, partial dentures, and dental implants. You can always discuss with Dr. Adatrow regarding your available options to replace your missing teeth.
