Your dentures can last between five and eight years with the proper care. You should consider replacing your dentures every few years and whenever you experience a change in the way they fit. By visiting Brighton Specialty Dental Group for your routine appointments our dentists may be able to determine it is time for new dentures. If you have dental insurance, you should check with your provider to understand your coverage
Your gums and jawbone change over time causing your dentures and/or your remaining teeth to interact with each other differently. They can become discolored and may begin to show normal wear.
Our team will take images and impressions of your gums and any remaining teeth, and you will need to have your new dentures fitted at our office.
You can expect a period of adjustment for your new dentures, since they will not fit in the same way as your old ones. You might have to schedule an appointment at Brighton Specialty Dental Group to have your dentures adjusted and liners. You may also need some time to get used to wearing them and learning how to speak and eat with your new appliance.
If your dentures are no longer serving you as they should, and it is time for a denture replacement in Ventura, California, call 805-644-5284 for your appointment with Dr. Homayoun H. Zadeh and associates.
