Your dentures are an investment and require care and attention to maintain their optimum performance. The fit of your dentures will have a profound effect on your oral tissues and health. An annual examination will help ensure your denture is functioning properly.
MEDICAL AND DENTAL HISTORY UPDATE Updating your medical and dental history with any significant changes is critical to maintaining your oral health and well-being. A variety of medical and dental conditions can alter a denture’s fit.
ANNUAL ORAL EXAM Annual examinations can assist in detecting oral abnormalities including cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. Early detection of these conditions is generally beneficial for treatment.
TISSUE AND BONE ASSESSMENT Ill-fitting dentures may cause bone and tissue changes and need to be corrected for your oral health. Our practice can assess and recommend solutions to suit your personal needs.
COMFORT, FIT, AND INTEGRITY OF DENTURES Bite problems, speech impediments and tissue irritations can be caused by an ill-fitting denture and should be remedied. Leaving this condition unchecked can lead to complicated situations in the future. We can assess your dentures for cracks, chips, and broken or loose teeth and suggest solutions.
