Common Questions About Dentures at Paul Binon DDS in Roseville

Addressing Your Denture Queries with Expert Answers

At Paul Binon DDS in Roseville, we understand that patients often have many questions about dentures. Providing clear, informative answers is crucial for helping our patients make informed decisions about their oral health. Below, we address some of the most frequently asked questions about dentures, drawing on authoritative information from dental associations.

What Are Dentures and Who Needs Them?

Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are typically used by individuals who have lost some or all of their natural teeth, either due to decay, gum disease, or injury. Dentures help restore function, such as chewing and speaking, and improve the appearance of the smile.

How Long Do Dentures Last?

The lifespan of dentures varies, but with proper care and maintenance, they can last several years. Over time, dentures may need to be relined, remade, or rebased due to normal wear or changes in the mouth. Regular dental check-ups are important to assess the condition of dentures.

Can I Sleep with My Dentures In?

It is generally recommended to remove dentures at night to allow the gums and bone to rest from the pressure of the denture during the day. This also helps maintain oral hygiene. However, specific recommendations may vary based on individual circumstances.

Will Dentures Affect How I Speak or Eat?

There may be an adjustment period after getting new dentures during which speaking and eating may feel different. However, with practice and time, these functions generally return to normal. Starting with soft foods and practicing speaking aloud can help with this adjustment.

How Do I Care for My Dentures?

Dentures require daily cleaning with a soft-bristle brush and a gentle cleanser. Soaking dentures overnight in a soaking solution or water (as recommended) and handling them with care are also important aspects of denture care.

Are Dentures Noticeable?

Modern dentures are designed to look natural and are often indistinguishable from natural teeth. Customization in size, shape, and color helps ensure that they complement your facial features and look as natural as possible.

For more detailed information on dentures, the American Dental Association and the American College of Prosthodontists provide valuable resources.
