5 Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures

As a first-time denture wearer, it is natural to experience anxiety about your new replacement teeth such as how to care for, speak and eat with your dentures.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding dentures to help ease your mind and make the most informed decision when it comes to which denture solution is right for you.

1. What are the different types of dentures?

For patients who have missing teeth, there are many different types of affordable and effective denture solutions available. These include:

  • Full dentures - for patients who are missing all of their natural teeth
  • Partial dentures - for patients who are missing just some of their natural teeth
  • Denture-supported implants - permanent dental replacements

At our Calgary denture clinic, our professional and experienced denturist can help determine which type of denture is best suited for your needs, lifestyle and budget to ensure that you are fully comfortable with your tooth loss solution.

2. How often should I clean my dentures?

Taking proper care of your dentures is essential to protecting your oral health and ensuring the longevity of your replacement teeth.

Special attention must be paid to cleanliness in order to remove any food debris, bacteria and various stains that can affect the comfort and fit of your dentures. If possible, denturists recommend cleaning your dentures twice a day: after each meal and before going to sleep.

Taking Care Of Your Partial Dentures


3. How much do dentures cost?

Your denture is not something that you will use occasionally - you expect it to serve you 24 hours a day and for many years. Thus it is important to think of your dentures as an investment.

Settling for cheap dentures will not only affect your oral health, quality of life and comfort, they will inevitably require more care and money in the long run due to frequent replacement and repairs.

Our Calgary denturist offers an extensive range of dentures to cater for all budgets and we offer flexible financing options so you never have to worry about compromising your well-being and oral health for low-quality, cheap dentures.

Why Cheap Dentures Are Bad


4. How do I know when it’s time for new dentures?

Dentures typically have a lifespan of between 5-10 years and even though your replacement teeth may feel unchanged, they will become worn and fragile over time.

Because our mouths and jaws experience natural changes, causing the gums and mouth to shrink, you will typically need to visit a denturist every few years to have your dentures checked and replaced.

Do My Dentures Need Replacing?


5. What is the difference between a dentist & a denturist?

Investing in a denture solution is much more than just trusting someone with your smile. Your appearance, comfort and quality of life is also at stake and you want to ensure that you entrust this important task to a qualified and experienced professional.

Unlike a dentist, a denturist is specially trained in the design, construction, insertion and adjustment of removable dentures as well as overdentures and implants, allowing them to provide you with the most comprehensive and effective tooth loss solutions.
