Dentures are made of resin that is molded to fit to the shape of your mouth to act and appear as teeth. They are not only great for having the appearance of perfect teeth but also for acting like teeth while eating. Dentures are strong and will assist in chewing and breaking down any foods that require you to do so. They are also a great way to improve the overall health of your mouth. Often times as we age our teeth will decay and cause pain. Dentures allow you to remove those problem teeth and replace them with a beautiful set of new ones.

Conventional Dentures (Full Denture)
Conventional dentures, also known as full dentures, are for patients who have lost all healthy tooth structure. These dentures are completely removable, giving you control over when you want to wear them.
Also known as a removable dental crown, partial dentures bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The major difference between conventional bridges and partial dentures is the ability to remove partial dentures. You have complete control over when you want to wear them! These dentures are only possible if some healthy tooth structure is salvageable.
Care and Maintenance
Your dentist will provide you with all the at-home care knowledge to ensure that your mouth is healthy, your dentures are comfortable and that they last for a long time. You will need to wear your dentures continuously for the first few weeks in order for your gums to adapt.

How do you clean them?
Run clean water over them to remove any food particles then brush them with a denture brush or a very soft toothbrush using denture cleaner.
Can I use my regular toothbrush/ toothpaste to clean my dentures?
No! Regular toothpaste and electric brushed are to strong and abrasive for your dentures. Over time they will break down your denture material.
Can I sleep with my dentures in?
No, give your gums some time to relax. Take your dentures out while sleeping and keep them submerged in warm water so they don’t dry out and lose their shape.
