Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures

What types of dentures are available?

There are complete dentures available that can replace all of a patient’s teeth and are positioned over the gums covering the jawbones. There are also partial dentures that can replace one or more missing teeth; these are attached to the remaining teeth and also cover and sit on the gums and bone where there are teeth missing.

How much do dentures cost?

This will depend on your particular needs, the complexity of your treatment, and how much time it takes to complete your treatment. Your dentist will talk to you about the costs involved with the particular dentures you need.

Can I wear my dentures while I’m sleeping?

Yes, you can. However, it is highly recommended that you take them out at night to allow your gums and bone to relax from the pressure of wearing the dentures throughout the day.

Will I feel any pain when I get dentures?

It is normal to feel a small amount of irritation when you start wearing new dentures. Your mouth will eventually get used to them, and any pain you feel will subside. The amount of time this will take varies from patient to patient.

Can partial dentures be perfectly colour matched with my remaining teeth?

Yes, they can. It is now possible to create dentures that match the colour and shade of the patient’s real teeth.

Can I get dentures put in the same day I get teeth extracted?

Yes, same day dentures are available. Your dentist may create immediate dentures for you if they feel it is necessary to do so.
