Dentures are removable dental appliances that a dentist prescribes when your natural teeth in a dental arch are missing.
When you are being fitted for dentures, we first take a measurement of your face and your mouth. Then, the shape and shade of each tooth are chosen, creating a smile that is customized for you.
Taking care of your dentures ensures that your dentures will last for many years. You need to care for your dentures similarly to your natural teeth, by brushing them properly twice daily with a professional denture cleaner. You should have your dentist clean your dentures every 6 months, and have your dentist check your dentures once per year, minimum.
