4 Reasons You Must Visit Your Denturist If You Wear Dentures

Do you wear full or partial dentures? Here are 4 reasons why denture wearers must schedule regular visits to their local denture clinic.

Many patients mistakenly believe that if they wear full/partial dentures, or have dental implants, they no longer have to make regular appointments at their denture clinic. However, this is not true.

Visiting your denturist at least once a year is key to maintaining good oral health, and it will allow your dental health professional to:

  • Check your dentures for signs of damage or wear
  • Ensure your dentures are still fitting properly
  • Spot any infections, mouth conditions, or even oral cancer at the earliest stage
  • Check your bone levels

4 Reasons Why Denture Wearers Must Visit Their Denture Clinic Regularly

When you wear full/partial dentures or you have dental implants, continuing with good oral hygiene practices is very important. This will help lower your risk of developing any serious conditions and it’ll keep your gums and remaining teeth healthy.

Here are 4 reasons why denture wearers should visit their denture clinic regularly:

1. It’ll Ensure Your Dentures Stay in Good Condition

Just like your natural teeth, your replacement ones require care and maintenance to give you the best service. By visiting your denturist regularly, you’ll ensure that they are in good quality, fit properly, and it’ll give you an opportunity to learn more about denture care and how to look after your gums and remaining teeth.

Denture Adjustments and Repairs

No matter the quality of your dentures, they will eventually lose their fit and become worn over time. Regular visits to your denturist will ensure they’re still fitting correctly. At Future Smiles, we offer FREE denture repair services for the first 3-6 months, depending on the denture solution you opt for.



2. Your Risk of Gum Disease Will Decrease

Even if you no longer have any of your natural teeth and you wear full dentures, you must take care of your gums. Failing to do so will lead to dangerous gum infections that can:

  • Increase your risk of other health complications such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke .
  • Increase your risk of developing certain cancers
  • Accelerate the progression of dementia

Visiting your denture clinic at least once a year will allow your denturist to check for any signs of gum disease and treat it during the early stages.

3. You’ll Receive Regular Oral Cancer Screenings

Whether you have full or partial dentures, it’s important to remember that oral cancer can also develop in people without teeth. In some cases, the risk can be higher given that poorly-fitting dentures can contribute to an elevated cancer risk.

Regular visits to your denture clinic will allow your dental care professional to spot the early signs of cancer and address it when it’s most treatable.

4. You’ll Be Made Aware of Any New Advancements in Denture Technology

Visiting your denturist regularly allows you to learn more about newer and more innovative tooth replacement options that can improve, or even replace your dentures, such as dental implants. Some of the great benefits of implant supported dentures or dental implants include:

  • They look, feel, and function more like your natural teeth
  • Have a longer lifespan
  • You won’t have any diet restrictions
  • Lower risk of bone loss
  • Better chewing and speaking ability
  • No more need for messy adhesives
