Candidates for Dentures

Did you know that about one-quarter of adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know 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 Do I Take Care of My Dentures?

Taking care of your dentures involves routine cleanings and examinations. Even patients with perfect prosthetics need to visit their dentist from time to time. During your visit, we will check your dentures’ fit and examine your gums, tongue, jaw, and mouth. We care about your overall oral health, not just your teeth.

    To care for your dentures at home:
  • Remove dentures overnight to let your mouth rest
  • Soak dentures in warm water with or without a 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 out and warping
  • DO NOT soak 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 Thornhill

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

    How is the cost of dentures determined? Important factors include:
  • The type of denture you need
  • Dental extractions or other required preparations
  • Necessary X-rays
  • Whether or not you opt for supportive implants

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

This way, we can help you reach your goals effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

With regular upkeep and proper maintenance, dentures can remain functional for 5 to 10 years. In addition to natural wear and tear, changes in your mouth over time may necessitate getting a new set eventually.

Yes, there are other solutions to missing teeth. Dental bridges can effectively close gaps resulting from the absence of one to three teeth. Dental implants, on the other hand, offer the flexibility to restore any number of missing teeth. It’s important to note that dental implants generally involve a higher initial cost and specific health criteria for candidacy.

While you can wear your dentures while sleeping, it’s advisable not to. Removing them at night allows you to clean your mouth, gums, and any remaining natural teeth. It also provides an opportunity for your gums and jaw to rest.

After adapting to your dentures, you should be able to eat most foods. 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, tough cuts of meat, as well as foods containing small particles like popcorn or seeded crackers, may pose challenges and are best enjoyed occasionally.

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.
