Ask The Denturist: Volume 14

In the 14th installment of “Ask The Denturist”, Natural Dentures Ask the Denturist in Eugene Oregon 14we discuss the life expectancy of dentures.

Q. How often should I get new dentures?

A. The Average life expectancy of a denture can vary between 5-10 years depending on the type of material used in producing your denture. You should have a yearly check-up with your Denturist to see if your dentures need replacing. Here are some signs that your dentures may need replacing:

  • Your dentures are loose and moving around.
  • The teeth are stained or a yellowish color.
  • You have pain or discomfort.
  • You can’t chew food like you used to.
  • Food is collecting underneath the denture.
  • Breaking or chipping of the denture.

These changes can occur gradually over time without you really noticing and the longer you delay replacing your dentures, the more your appearance and comfort can be affected. If you notice any changes, please feel free to schedule a free exam and consultation with one of our Denturists to determine your next steps.
