Just because you wear dentures doesn’t mean you can avoid the dreaded annual check-up. In fact, people who wear full dentures, an annual or bi-annual check-up with
denturist is even more important. In an annual denture cleanings, there are two things I check for: the dentures themselves and the oral hygiene of the patient.
So, what do I usually cover in an annual check-up?
Good oral hygiene is critical for denture wearers. The tissue in your mouth and the muscle around your jaw change over time and will affect the fit of the dentures. And if it’s a loose fit, not only can a patient not eat properly and enjoy life, but they can make a small problem worse. If it’s been a while since you last saw a denturist, then give me a call and let's get started. Just like your dentist, we like to see you once a year as well.
