Some denture facts that might surprise you

  • A well fitted denture will produce a natural suction that will keep your denture in place when you eat, talk, laugh or yawn.
  • Well made dentures eliminate friction that could cause pain and mouth ulcers.
  • A poorly made denture can lead to jaw pain and headaches.
  • Brushing your denture too hard can cause it to stain more easily.
  • Dentures that are not relined regularly, (once every 3 -4 years), can cause gums to shrink rapidly.
  • Ask your Dental professional what process is used to make your dentures. The hot cured process will result in better quality dentures and the cold press process will result in poorer quality dentures.
