Do you accept dental Plans?

Yes we do accept all major dental plans. Usually with one phone call we can determine what your plan covers and approximately how much they will pay towards your treatment.

How to I maintain my dentures?

 

The best way to clean dentures is to brush them with a toothbrush or a denture brush. The ideal brush has soft bristles and can reach every crevice in your denture.

A non-abrasive toothpaste or a mild liquid soap are all appropriate cleaning agents. After every meal, gently brush your denture over its entire surface, paying special attention to the spaces between the teeth and the area that come in contact with your gums.

Always rinse your denture thoroughly under warm running water before putting it back in your mouth or into a soaking solution.

When you remove your denture for the night, keep in a covered container, filled with water or a special soaking solution.

How often do I need to replace my dentures?

The Canadian Dental Association recommends replacing your dentures every 5 years. Dentures do not change but your mouth and gums are constantly changing. Sometimes these changes are imperceptible to you but make a big difference in the fit of your denture.

When should I have my dentures relined or rebased?

When shrinkage in your tissues and bone affect the fit of the denture it should be relined or rebased. Usually dentures need to be relined every 2 to 3 years. Everyone is different and a check-up can determine if you need a reline or a rebase.

A reline will refit your denture by replacing some of the pink denture base.

A rebase is similar to relining however it replaces all the pink denture base.

The appearance of the denture will not change in either option as the teeth remain the same and in the same position.
