Denture FAQs: You have questions … we have answers.
Newmarket Denture Clinic & Implant Solutions is committed to educating our patients every step of the denture process. If you or your loved one wears dentures, here are some quick FAQs & facts you should know and keep in mind:
Q. Why should I go to a denturist?
A. A denturist is a specially trained professional, and as a result, their experience, expertise and knowledge are specific to your needs. It is important to remember that regardless if you have done this before or if it’s your first time getting dentures, you are entrusting someone with your overall appearance.
Within the Newmarket Denture Clinic, our on-site lab enables our denturists to personally handle every step and ensure the quality of our work. We’re able to provide a quick turnaround to accommodate emergency/rush situations.
Q. What should I do if I see sores on my gums and throughout my mouth?
A. Sores in your mouth or along your gums may be the result of an ill-fitting denture that’s rubbing against different areas of your mouth, causing the sores and tender spots. Don’t live with the pain – schedule an appointment with your denturist immediately.
Q. I have trouble chewing food and/or I avoid certain solid foods. What can I do?
A. If you have trouble chewing food or chewing has become very painful, your denture may not fit correctly. Don’t avoid eating – schedule an appointment with your denturist to ensure a proper denture fit.
Q. How long can I wear my dentures before replacing them?
A. This will vary from patient to patient. Many patients will try and keep their dentures for longer than five years, some even longer than 10 years. This is usually because they have become accustomed to how the dentures fit, regardless if they’ve become loose or worn out. Wearing old/worn-out dentures causes poor dental hygiene, excessive tissue growth, sores, and in some cases, it causes the patient to stop eating due to discomfort or an inability to chew. Regular appointments with your denturist will ensure your dentures still fit properly.
