However, just as with natural teeth, over time your dentures may begin to wear down and need to be repaired or even replaced altogether.
Aging DenturesAs you go about your daily life-including eating and drinking all of the foods and drinks that you enjoy eating and drinking now-your dentures take a tremendous amount of abuse. As the years pass by, this abuse can begin to take a toll on your dentures. Your dentures may begin to wear out or even chip, crack, or otherwise break.
Just as your natural teeth need to be repaired after suffering some form of damage, you should not expect to continue using your dentures once they have become damaged. Even if they have not suffered from serious damage, they may begin to wear down from the continuous use.
If you discover that your dentures are not performing the way that they used to, or if you feel like they no longer fit you comfortably, you may need to have them replaced. The best way to determine whether this is necessary is to come in and talk with us about it.
We will be happy to take a look at your dentures and to look at your gums to see how the dentures are wearing on your tissue. If we find that your dentures are worn down and need to be replaced, we will talk with you about it and help you to decide the best course of action to take.
