Your dentures should be treated just like regular teeth! Be sure to see your dentist every six months for a checkup to see how your dentures are fitting and look for signs of concern.
Generally, a full set of dentures will last 5-7 years before needing to be replaced due to wear and tear. Partials may last 5-10 years, depending on the quality of the materials used and how well you care for them at home.
Over time, you will need to get your dentures repaired, or even replaced, due to normal wear and tear. If you experience any issues with your dentures or find that they no longer fit your mouth properly, visit our office.
In most cases, yes. Many major dental insurance plans cover some or all of the cost of dentures. However, the extent of coverage depends on your plan and carrier. Be sure to refer to your insurance plan or discuss your insurance questions with our team.
It will take some time to get used to wearing your dentures once you receive them from your dentist. It’s normal for the dentures to feel loose or bulky in your mouth, and it may take a week or two to get used to eating with them. However, as you adjust to your new dentures, you will begin to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
