When Should You Replace Your Denture?

The prosthetic dental appliance you received from our Atlanta denture specialists is intended to last you for many years. As time goes by, you may begin to consider getting a new set. Here are some reasons that you can use as signs to help you determine when that time is right.

Teeth Are Worn

Biting down and chewing can cause wear on prosthetic teeth. While they can sometimes be replaced with new ones, it may be best for you to just get a new denture.

Teeth Are Stained

Despite your best efforts to clean your denture well, years of use can cause persistent discoloration.

Teeth Keep Falling Out

From time to time you may have a tooth that falls off of your “plate.” Our Woodstock denture specialists can replace these teeth for you, but if it’s a frequent issue it may be in your best interest to get a new appliance.

Denture Is Cracked

When the base of a denture cracks, it can be difficult to repair. Smooth cracks are more predictable then jagged ones. Our team will advise you if they feel you’d be better off getting a new set of teeth.

Denture Is Loose

When you don’t have natural teeth, your gum tissue shrinks at a gradual pace. After having your dentures for several years, you may notice that it’s very loose. We can reline the inside of the appliance to make a tighter fit, or you may just opt for a new prosthetic.
