There are several components to dentures exams and maintenance, which encompass both your appliance and your mouth.
Medical and Dental History Update
Our dentists need to be aware of any changes to your medical or dental history. If you are using any medications or have a medical or dental condition, it could affect the fit of your dentures.
Annual Oral Exam
Visiting the dentist regularly is critical to maintaining good oral health. Annual examinations help us detect abnormalities in your mouth, including cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. Early detection is almost always the key to a successful treatment.
Tissue and Bone Assessment
If your dentures fit poorly, it may cause changes to your bone and tissue. These issues need to be correct as soon as possible for your oral health.
Comfort, Fit, and Integrity of Your Dentures
There are many problems caused by ill-fitting dentures that can and should be correct as quickly as possible, including bite problems, speech impediments, and tissue irritations. Treating these conditions can help you avoid further problems in the future and ensure that your denture functions properly and looks great.
During your appointment, we will also clean and polish your denture and review your oral hygiene.
