Denturist - Duration of a dental prosthesis

In general, a dental prosthesis has a duration which varies from 5 to 7 years. The duration varies from patient to patient due to movements of the bone and gums over the years. It is recommended that you have your dentures checked every five years by a dental professional. This will be able to assess whether your prostheses are still well suited to your gums. Also, if you notice that your prosthesis is becoming uncomfortable or that there seems to be a breakage, make an appointment with a specialist for an evaluation.

Maintenance of prostheses

Just like on natural teeth, tartar can build up on dentures. Tartar can be the cause of gum disease like gingivitis and periodontitis. It is therefore important to have a good maintenance of them.

It is recommended to rinse your dentures with lukewarm water after each meal and, if possible, brush with a soft-bristled brush to avoid damaging the surfaces thereof. Ideally, it is also recommended to perform a light brushing on the gums, palate and tongue. Bacteria will be eliminated after each meal and tartar will not be able to develop.

It is also suggested to remove your prostheses for the night in order to soak them in lukewarm water and a cleaning solution specially designed for this purpose. Removing your dentures promotes good blood circulation to your gums and palate.

The choice of the prosthesis will depend on your overall health in the first place, but also on your oral health. Trust your professionals in implantology, denturology and prosthodontics who will be able to give you the best recommendation according to your situation.
