Partial dentures are removable and are clipped onto the natural teeth whereas full dentures are a solution to missing all of one’s teeth. Your teeth may be missing due to several issues regarding your oral health such as bone loss, periodontal disease, or tooth decay. In that case, you are an excellent candidate for full dentures or dental implants. For both types of dentures, our denturist will make a model of your teeth by taking impressions. The models are then used to make customized partial or full dentures for you.

Maintenance & Care for Full Dentures
Make Your Full Dentures Last Longer
To clean full dentures, you’ll want to keep a daily routine of taking them out and rinsing them thoroughly. This will prevent food particles that may be stuck between the teeth, along the gum line or under the structure from building up. You will then want to gently brush the dentures with a denture brush or soft toothbrush using mild soap or denture cleaner. To maintain good oral hygiene make sure you are cleaning your gums as well.
Our Full Denture Process
What to Expect When Getting Full Dentures
If you are having any teeth extracted before getting full dentures, then they will act as a sort of bandage while wearing them on your first day. You will need to keep the full dentures in for 24 hours, even while you sleep. After 24 hours, you can wear and remove your full dentures normally. We recommend that you take your full dentures out before going to sleep so you can clean them and allow your gums to rest and stay healthy.

What can I expect when getting full dentures for the first time?
If you are having any teeth extracted before getting full dentures, then they will act as a sort of bandage while wearing them on your first day. You will need to keep them in for a full 24 hours, even while you sleep. After the initial 24 hours, you can use your dentures normally, and we recommend that you take your full dentures out before going to sleep so you can clean them and allow your gums to rest and stay healthy.
How long does it take to get used to full dentures?
If the full dentures are properly made and fitted in the mouth, it should take approximately 30 days for a patient to get used to their new dentures. During this time, the patient will need to learn how to eat and speak with their new dentures, and can expect some soreness in the gums during the first couple of weeks. Be patient during this process as it will all pass as your mouth gets used to the full dentures.
How long do full dentures last?
Statistics have shown that full dentures last anywhere from 5 to 10 years, but can last up to 15 years if properly cared for. Over the lifespan of the dentures, both the gums and dentures will undergo changes that will cause the dentures to not fit as they once did and look misplaced in the mouth. They will need to undergo regular maintenance through relining and rebasing.
Do I still need to practice proper oral care if I have full dentures?
Yes, you do! Keeping your mouth clean is as important for a person with full dentures as it is for a person with all of their teeth intact. Your dentures should be taken out and cleaned every day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive denture cleanser. You will also need to brush your gums and tongue with fluoride toothpaste twice daily to prevent gum disease.
Is leaving dentures in while sleeping bad?
Leaving full dentures in while you sleep puts you at risk for serious health consequences. A 2007 study that was published in The Journal of Dental Research showed that elderly people who slept with their dentures in and did not practice proper oral hygiene were twice as likely to develop, and be hospitalized for, or die from pneumonia.
