Frequently Asked Questions
You’ve probably got questions so we thought we would answer a few common questions posed by our customers.
A full set of dentures can last up to 7-10 years, depending on how well you look after your dentures; they can last in great condition for several years. With natural wear and tear, shrinking bones, face shape changes and other factors, dentures may need to be replaced to suit and keep doing their job properly.
Note: The longer you keep your current set of dentures, the more difficult it will be to adjust to a new set of dentures.
Yes. For denture-wearers, there may be a period of getting used to your new teeth, and that could mean some eating habits change or what hard foods you are able to bite straight into.
You may feel some discomfort while you adjust to your new dentures, but there should not be any severe pain. If you feel like something is not right, ring and book an adjustment appointment with your Dental Technician.
Yes. Dentures are not natural teeth and will take some getting used to. It is possible you may need to adapt your eating habits to suit your new teeth, so expect some frustration as you find your new habits to accommodate your beautiful new smile.
Always follow the specific instructions your dentist and Michael, your Dental Technician, gives you to take care of your set of dentures, but generally, the following rules apply:
- Brush your dentures daily with proper denture cleaners like polident. Always wash your hands before handling your dentures to avoid infections.
- Be gentle with your dentures, even when cleaning them, to avoid breaking them. When cleaning, ensure you wash them over a sink filled with water so that if you accidentally drop them, they will land in the water and not in the sink or floor. This reduces the chance of breaking your dentures.
- Keep them stored in a container that you use only for your dentures.
To make sure you can keep smiling for longer, eating healthily without discomfort and enjoying your dentures – it’s important to keep a few things in mind!
- Always look after your dentures as per the given instructions.
- As time goes on, keep an eye on your jaw for any changes of shape or realignment so that the changes can be addressed and refitted if possible.
- Take note of discomfort; if it continues, ring and book an adjustment appointment with your Dental Technician.
