Q) Are the dentures always removable?

  • Most of the times dentures are removable.However we can fix them up in certain cases if they are taking support from implants.
  • Q) How to decide whether the old denture requires a change now?
  • Denture takes support both from teeth/implant and jaw bone.So with the time the jaw bone keeps dissolving so your denture should also be changed every 3-5 years.A proper maintenance of the denture and regular check by the dental surgeon really helps in extending the life of the denture
  • Q) Dentures most of the times look very artificial.Are there any dentures which are cosmetically pleasing?
  • These days we have so many advanced options like BPS dentures etc which exactly resemble the natural tissues and are very high on precision and cosmetics.
