Frequently Asked Questions

How long should I wait after extractions to get dentures?

In some cases, dentures are made following a major tooth extraction surgery, it takes time for the gums and bone to heal properly. Conventionally denture fabrication would be started 6 to 8 weeks after extraction, however Immediate dentures can be an excellent option as well. This type of dentures is made prior to teeth extraction and are inserted in the mouth immediately after the surgery. Regardless of the option that the client will decide to go with, denture will need to be frequently adjusted and relined as bone resorption shrinks the patient’s gums.

What foods should I eat after getting dentures?

When you get new dentures, you should stick to soft foods and liquids to give your gums time to adjust to chewing and biting with the dentures. Examples of good foods to eat are:

  • Hot cereals such as porridge
  • Applesauce
  • Pudding
  • Jello
  • Mashed vegetables
  • Juice
  • Yogurt

As you transition to solid foods, stick to soft cooked meats, vegetables, legumes and breads and cut them into small pieces to reduce the amount of chewing needed to consume them. There are foods that you will want to avoid in the first week or two as you return to your regular diet including:

  • Sticky foods like peanut butter and gummy candies
  • Foods with small, stubborn pieces like popcorn, shelled nuts and seeds.
  • Hard foods like apples, nuts, and carrot sticks
  • Tough meats like pork chops, steak and ribs.

These foods can apply uneven pressure to dentures and gums, causing the dentures to become dislodged and food to get trapped under them. This will cause irritation of the gums and be incredibly uncomfortable or painful.

Can I leave my Complete dentures in all the time?

The only instance where it is okay to leave dentures in is when patients have permanently fixed Implant dentures. Otherwise, it is not recommended to leave dentures in all the time. If dentures are left in all the time, then your gums won’t get any rest. This will speed up the pace of bone loss which will affect your overall oral health. It will also slowly loosen your dentures’ fit in your mouth and make them uncomfortable to wear. Take them out while you sleep to give your gums the rest they need.

What are Complete dentures made of?

Complete dentures are made of acrylic resin for the base, and porcelain or acrylic denture teeth. If a patient has an allergy to acrylic, then alternative solutions will need to be explored.

How long does it take to make Complete dentures?

It usually takes 4 to 5 dental office visits to fabricate Complete dentures. Follow up appointments for post insertion adjustments may also be necessary. We usually like to see our clients for at least one mandatory follow up appointment after they receive their new dentures.

How long do Complete dentures last?

Complete dentures usually last 5 to 10 years on average. However, patients with underlying health issues that cause early, or rapid bone loss will need them replaced more frequently because the dentures will need to be relined or rebased to fit their gums properly.

Complete Implant dentures which are properly cared for can last much longer. They can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years.
