If you’ve ever worn broken dentures, you know how terrible the experience can be. Not only is it embarrassing, but it also makes eating and talking difficult.
Wear and tear is unavoidable with all denture types, whether full, partial or the kind that’s held in place with implants. However, at Eden Denture Clinic, we know a thing or two about how to avoid breaking your dentures, as we’ve been providing Winnipeg residents with quality denture care for over 25 years.
For many people, getting a set of dentures can be a great relief and a great improvement to their lives. At the same time, like your natural teeth, dentures are a responsibility. Both partial and full dentures can and should be removed every day before you sleep and require cleaning to keep them working as well as the day you got them. Plaque and tartar will still be problems for your dentures and should be prevented from accumulating.
The decision to get dentures is a significant one. It will be a commitment of effort, time, and money for most people. At the same time, dentures also have the potential to change people’s lives for the better. Here are a few signs that you may be a candidate for dentures:
The exact number and types of repairs your dentures may need vary widely depending on what kind of dentures you have, how well you care for them, and the uses you put them to in your daily life. Even if you take perfect care of your dentures and nothing is broken, every full denture should be replaced every five to seven years.
Deciding to get dentures can be daunting. It’s a major commitment and will change your life in a lot of different ways. Typically, people eligible for dentures have either lost teeth or will almost certainly lose teeth in the near future. Dentures can, however, be a good idea for people whose dental problems make it difficult to do ordinary tasks, such as eating, or feel too embarrassed to participate in social activities because of their teeth. For these people, dentures can give them back their smile. Talk to your local denturist to find out if implant dentures are the right kind of denture for you.
