FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • This is naturally one of the big concerns for new denture wearers and will affect people in different ways. Try not to worry if pronouncing certain words or eating certain foods is tricky at first; it just takes a bit of practice.

  • Dentures are pretty tough, but they're not indestructible and they are softer than natural teeth. A proper denture care routine will help keep them looking their best and your dental professional will advise you whenever the right moment for an adjustment will be.

  • If your dentures feel loose, try using a denture adhesive to help keep them in place. If you’re experiencing discomfort, schedule a visit with your dentist. Your gums and bone structure change over time, so you may need to have your dentures adjusted or replaced. Most sets should last 5 to 10 years.

  • If your dentures don’t fit properly or haven’t been replaced in more than 5 to 10 years, they can chip or crack. As soon as you notice any damage, see your dentist. Do not try fixing your dentures at home as this can cause further damage.
