Complete Your Smile with Complete Dentures

If you have lost all your natural teeth, it can be challenging to go about daily activities, including eating, speaking, and smiling confidently. One way to restore your missing teeth is by getting complete dentures. Complete dentures are false teeth that resemble natural teeth and are designed to replace all missing teeth in either the upper or lower arch. It is a popular option for people who have lost their natural teeth due to disease, injury, or aging. In this blog, we will explore everything you need to know about removable complete denture services offered at Community Denture Centre in Penticton and Oliver.

What are complete dentures?

Complete dentures are full-mouth prosthetic devices that function as natural teeth to help you eat, speak, and smile. They are composed of a gum-colored acrylic base that holds the prosthetic teeth in place. Dentures can be fitted for the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. They are fully removable and easy to clean.

How are complete dentures made?

The process of creating complete dentures involves several appointments with your dentist. During the first appointment, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth and create a mold of your jaw. The mold will then be sent to a dental laboratory, where a technician will create a wax model of the denture. The wax model is then tried on, and any necessary adjustments are made. The final denture is created from the adjusted wax model.

How do I care for my complete dentures?

To keep your complete dentures in good condition, it’s essential to clean them regularly. You should brush them with a soft-bristled brush and denture cleaner to remove any food particles and bacteria. It’s best not to use toothpaste on dentures as it’s abrasive and can scratch the surface. When not in use, dentures should be stored in water or denture-soaking solution to prevent them from drying out.

How long do complete dentures last?

Complete dentures typically last between five and ten years with proper care and maintenance. However, they may need to be adjusted or replaced if they become ill-fitting or damaged.
