How long will my dentures last?
In most cases and to ensure optimum wear, your dentures should last between 5 and 10 years. Natural teeth wear down and stain over the years, and dentures will, too. Tissue in your mouth changes over time. Your dentures may require adjusting or rebasing periodically, so it is wise to see your denturist at least once a year to ensure your denture continue to fit well, and whether any adjustments need to be made.
How often should I have a check-up?
Generally, it is recommended that you have a check-up once a year. We are trained to observe and detect any abnormalities or conditions in your mouth.
How should I clean my dentures?
Ideally your dentures should be cleaned after every meal. They should be cleaned over a basin of water or damp towel to avoid breakage in case they are dropped. Use a denture brush and a good denture cleaner. Avoid gritty pastes or powders, as the repeated use will damage the denture. Use only lukewarm water.
