FAQs at The Denture Company

Dentures are removable dental appliances used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and are held in place by suction or clasps attached to natural teeth.

With proper care and maintenance, dentures can last between 5 to 10+ years. However, they may need adjustments or relining over time due to changes in your mouth.

Clean your dentures daily using a soft-bristled brush and denture cleaner. Avoid using abrasive toothpaste, as it can scratch the surface. Soak them overnight in a denture-cleaning solution to keep them moist and prevent them from losing their shape.

It is generally recommended to remove dentures at night to allow your gums to rest and prevent potential infections. If you choose to wear them while sleeping, be sure to clean them thoroughly before going to bed.

You may initially experience some difficulty speaking with dentures, but this typically improves with practice. Reading aloud and repeating challenging words can help you adjust more quickly.

Full dentures are complete sets of prosthetic teeth designed to replace all missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw. They are ideal for individuals who have lost all their natural teeth due to various reasons like decay, injury, or gum disease.

The adaptation period varies for each individual, but typically it can take a few weeks to a few months to get fully accustomed to wearing full dentures.

Partial dentures are designed to replace one or several missing teeth, unlike full dentures that replace an entire set of teeth. Partials are anchored to the remaining natural teeth using clasps or other retainers.

Yes, partial dentures are designed to restore the functionality of your teeth. It may take a little time to adjust, but you should be able to eat most foods comfortably.
