Care and Maintenance
Dentures are an investment that require maintenance from time to time to ensure that they are fitting and functioning at their best. Relining or rebasing your denture on a regular basis keeps it functioning optimally, preserves your bone structure and can help a denture last longer. Seeing Michelle or David for regular check ups also helps us to keep up to date with your medical and dental history, and allows us to perform and examination of the oral cavity to check for any abnormalities.
Your dentures are an investment that require care and attention. Your denturist will help maintain your denture(s) and oral tissues so they stay at their optimal performance. The fit and function of your dentures and oral tissues are an integral part of your well-being.
A regular examination by your denturist will ensure peace of mind.
Medical and Dental History
Updating your medical and dental history is a significant segment of your patient files. Changes in your medical and or dental health may affect the fit and function of your dentures.
Annual examinations can assist in detecting oral abnormalities.
Tissue and Bone
Changes in tissue and bone can occur for a number of reasons. Ill-fitting dentures may cause further bone and tissue changes. Your denturist can assess and recommend solutions for you to consider.
Fit and Feel of Your Dentures
Poor fitting dentures can lead to bite problems, speech impediments and tissue irritations. Leaving this condition unchecked can lead to complicated situations in the future.
Checking Your Dentures for Structural Intergrity
Your denturist can assess your dentures for cracks, chips, and broken or loose teeth. The denturist will advise you regarding a course of action to remedy the situation.
