Your Denturist is sensitive to your well-being and to the condition of your dentures. Your Denturist also has the experience and expertise to advise you on the best treatment options available to you.

Now that I have dentures, do I need an annual exam?

Your dentures and tissues need to be checked annually.

Damage to the oral tissues can take place without you even noticing. Early detection and elimination of tissue inflammation are important to minimize shrinkage of the supporting bone and tissue. By keeping the tissue healthy, your dentures will continue to fit correctly.

Your Denturist will also check the fit of your denture, inspect them for stains and calculus deposits, and make sure your bite position (how evenly your teeth close together) is correct.

Our mouth’s are continually changing, so by having your Denturist check on your oral condition, you are able to enjoy all the benefits of a well-fitting quality denture for as long as possible.
