Dentures Frequently Asked Questions

If you are missing some or all of your teeth, dentures may be an option for you.
Full dentures are used when there are no remaining teeth in your mouth. If you have one or more of your natural teeth remaining, a partial denture may be a suitable option. Partial’s are used to fill in the spaces created by missing teeth and keep your remaining teeth from changing positions.
Implant dentures are similar to a fixed bridge. Generally, your dentist will place four to six implants on your upper and lower arch. The denture will then be fixed to the implants. These offer more stability then typical dentures and they are not removed every night.
The process varies with different types of dentures. For a step-by-step guide to getting our Premium Plus and Standard Premium dentures, visit our Dentures 101 page and scroll down to the treatment process.
Our Premium Plus dentures are made of durable, long-lasting porcelain that can last up to 20 years. Our Standard Premium dentures are made out of a plastic material that generally lasts about 7-10 years. Both types of dentures we offer are made from a higher quality of material then those found at denture clinics.
It’s important to take care of your dentures just as you would your natural teeth.  Follow these simple tips to properly care for your dentures:

  1. Rinse dentures after eating.  Remove your dentures and rinse water over them to get rid of food particles.
  2. Brush and soak daily. Use a nonabrasive denture cleanser to soak and brush your dentures every day.  Make sure to rinse them before putting back in your mouth.
  3. Soak overnight.  Store your dentures in water or a mild denture soaking solution overnight.  If you use a denture solution, make sure to rinse before putting your denture back in your mouth.

When cleaning your dentures, it is best to avoid using the following:

  1. Hot water
  2. Bleaching products
  3. Whitening toothpastes
  4. Abrasive toothbrushes, cleansers or toothpastes.

It’s also important to continue to care for remaining teeth, your gums and in the inside of your mouth by daily brushing.
