Dentures

Dentures are sometimes a necessary course of action for a dental patient. For those who need whole-mouth tooth extractions, they are essential: dentures help these people with chewing, speaking, appearance, and maintaining self-esteem. And just like with any medical or dental procedure, they come with their own set of questions (and misconceptions) about their usage. Let's examine some of the common ones:

Are they permanent?  
No, dentures are not permanent. They're definitely breakable, so they require care in handling and transporting them. They also accumulate normal wear-and-tear with usage and age, so replacements will typically be needed.

Do I still need to go to the dentist?
Absolutely! There is more to your mouth than your teeth; the gums and surrounding tissues also need attention and care. It is also important to check for signs of oral cancer.

As for the dentures themselves, your dentists will likely need to check on their upkeep. They may adjust in your mouth and become misfit, or wear and discolor, or accumulate bacteria and need to be replaced.

Can I eat and talk normally with dentures?
Typically, yes. However, if your dentures adjust or warp over time, or show any other alterations, they may need to be checked and readjusted. Again, keep regular dental appointments to maintain their function ability.

Do I need to use adhesive to wear them long-term?
No, adhesives are not essential to keeping your dentures in. They are custom-fitted and typically do not require any products to help them stay put.

Will medications affect my dentures?
Sometimes. Certain medicines affect your saliva production, which will affect your usage of dentures just the same as they do natural teeth.

While my dentures are being repaired, will I be without teeth?
Generally, no. Nowadays, most dentists are able to repair dentures very quickly, sometimes during your office visit. Many dental offices have on-set labs to create dentures immediately, without having to send away or wait for work from a seperate company. Simply put, it is very uncommon that a person who wears dentures is stuck without them.

Careington members can save a minimum of 20% on dentures and up to 50% savings depending on the type of dentures you select.  Click here to see the dental savings fee schedule for your state to see how much you can save.
