Candidates for Dentures

Did you know that around one-quarter of adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution for missing teeth. They are so reliable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures without even realizing it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures?

    To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment, you should:
  • Wish to replace several or all of your teeth
  • Not smoke or use other tobacco products
  • Have a healthy jawbone (we can help you with this!)
  • Not suffer from dry mouth
  • Be prepared to take good care of your dentures at home
  • Continue to visit the dentist for routine exams—just like with natural teeth!

How to Care for Your Dentures

Proper care of your dentures is essential for maintaining your oral health. Even patients with perfect prosthetics need to visit their dentist regularly. During your visit, we will examine the fit of your dentures and check your gums, tongue, jaw, and mouth. We care about your overall oral health, not just your teeth.

    At-Home Denture Care:
  • Remove dentures overnight to let your mouth rest
  • Soak dentures in warm water with or without denture cleanser
  • Do not soak dentures with metal clasps in anything but warm water
  • When not wearing dentures, keep them in water to prevent drying and warping
  • DO NOT soak them in hot water
  • With dentures removed, clean and massage your gums
  • If your toothbrush hurts your gums, run it under warm water or use a finger wrapped in a clean, damp cloth
  • If you have partial dentures, brush your natural teeth as usual

Cost of Dentures in Kanata

In Kanata, you can expect to pay approximately $900 to $3,500+ for full or partial dentures. The cost varies widely because there are dentures to suit many different needs. Full-mouth dentures can range from $1,800 to $3,500 and up, while a full set of implant-supported dentures averages around $30,000 as a ballpark estimate.

    How Is the Cost of Dentures Determined? Several factors influence the cost of dentures, including:
  • The type of denture you need
  • Dental extractions or other required preparations
  • Necessary X-rays
  • Whether you opt for supportive implants

Each case is unique, so it’s important to speak with a dentist and undergo an oral exam. This allows us to evaluate your situation and provide various treatment options. We would be happy to offer you a more accurate quote based on your specific needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, dental bridges are a suitable solution for closing gaps resulting from the absence of 1 to 3 teeth. Conversely, dental implants offer the flexibility to restore any number of missing teeth. It’s worth noting that dental implants generally involve a higher initial cost and specific health criteria for candidacy.

With regular upkeep and proper maintenance, you can expect your dentures to remain functional for 5 to 10 years. Over time, natural wear and tear, as well as changes in your mouth, may necessitate obtaining a new set of dentures eventually.

While it’s possible to wear your dentures while sleeping, it is advisable not to do so. Removing them at night for soaking allows you to clean your mouth, gums, and any remaining natural teeth. It also gives your gums and jaw a chance to rest.

Your upper dentures should create a secure suction with your gums, while the lower dentures should rest comfortably above your gums, staying in place effortlessly. Partial dentures should align well with your natural teeth, minimizing movement. Implant-supported dentures securely snap into position, ensuring stability. If you have concerns about the fit of your dentures, please schedule an appointment with us. We will assess the fit and make any necessary adjustments.

Once you’ve had sufficient time to adapt to your dentures, you should find that you can consume almost any type of food. However, be cautious with certain foods that can be tough on your dentures or cause discomfort. Hard or sticky foods, such as caramel, carrot sticks, or tough cuts of meat, as well as those containing small particles like popcorn or seeded crackers, may pose challenges and are best enjoyed as occasional treats.
