5 Facts About Dentures


Fact 1 – Dentures don’t last forever

While modern dentures in Winnipeg are more durable than ever, they can still be broken if dropped or mishandled. Also, dentures can lose their natural appearance and chewing ability as a result of chewing, brushing, and ageing.

Things to look for:

  • looseness
  • bad odor
  • color change
  • stains

Fact 2 – Adhesives can affect the fit and comfort of your denture.

Custom-made dentures are made to fit precisely and should not require adhesive. Improperly fitting dentures may necessitate the use of an adhesive product to provide extra security and peace of mind, but this should not be considered a long-term solution. Dentures that do not fit properly can cause bone loss and should be repaired as soon as possible.

Fact 3 – Dentures can be affected by medications.

Certain medications can have an impact on how well your dentures fit. They can reduce the amount of saliva in your mouth, making swallowing and chewing difficult. Make sure your denturist is aware of any medications you are taking on a regular – or even sporadic – basis.

Fact 4 – All dentures are not created equal. If you seek the lowest price, you will get what you pay for.

It’s important to remember, as with most things, that you get what you pay for. Inquire with your denturist if they use high-quality denture materials.

Fact 5 – Don’t assume regular denture care is expensive.

Speak with your denturist before deciding that regular checkups, examinations, and denture care will be too costly. Inquire about charges for adjustments, repairs, and replacement if necessary. Dentures are an investment in your future health and comfort that can affect your overall health and quality of life.
