Replacing your natural teeth is more than trusting someone with your smile…your appearance, your self confidence – your whole image is at stake. Make sure you entrust this delicate task to a specially trained professional!

Expertise, meticulousness and professionalism make Denturists the best possible choice to help you derive the maximum benefit from dental prosthetics technology.
Denturists are your denture specialists.
Your Denturist listens to your needs and personally handles every step in the construction of your denture: from the first impression to the last adjustment. There is no middleman in the fabrication of your new denture – the Denturist has an on-site laboratory to produce your personalized dentures. Your Denturist is the ideal person to instruct you in the daily maintenance of your denture. He/she will advise you how often your denture should be adjusted in order to ensure the comfort, effectiveness and esthetic appearance that you expect. After all, Denturists specialize in dentures and related removable appliances.
Your dentures will not last indefinitely. The denture teeth and base will wear and stain over time. The tissues of the mouth are undergoing continual change so that the dentures will have to be adjusted, relined or remade from time to time. The amount of time will vary and depend upon such factors as individual tolerances, habits and the length of time you have had dentures. The average life of a denture is about five to seven years. Your Denturist is sensitive to your well-being and to the general condition of your dentures. Your Denturist also has the experience and expertise to advise you on the best treatment plan for you and how to proceed.
Yes, your dentures and tissues should be checked annually. Damage to the oral tissues can take place without your being aware of it. Early detection and elimination of tissue inflammation is important to minimize shrinkage of the supporting bone and tissue. By keeping the tissue healthy, your dentures will continue to fit correctly. Your Denturist will also check for looseness of the denture due to tissue changes, stains and calculus deposits on the denture, and your bite position (how evenly your teeth close together). It's not the dentures which change over time, it's your mouth which is continually changing. By having your Denturist check on your oral condition, you are able to enjoy all the benefits of a well fitting quality denture.
