How Long Will Dentures Last?

Missing teeth can have a lasting impact on your oral and overall health — while just one missing tooth can dramatically alter your looks over time, having several missing teeth can significantly damage your confidence, impact your jaw strength, and alter your eating habits.

Dentures are an ideal solution for those missing all of their teeth. At Springhurst Hills Dentistry in Louisville, Kentucky, dental patients can rest easy knowing that we can provide full and partial dentures for those who need it and restore your smile!

What Are Dentures?

Because teeth support your facial muscles and soft tissues, it’s important to find a restorative option even when you’re missing all of them. Dentures are removable devices made from a gum-colored acrylic base with natural-looking false teeth that will help you eat, talk, and chew with confidence.

Dentures are a realistic appliance to replace all or multiple missing teeth. At Springhurst Hills Dentistry, we will evaluate your individual situation to create dentures that are perfect for your unique needs.

Dentures are removable, and you should remove them every night and keep them in a cleaning solution in order to let your gums relax and keep your dentures intact.

Partial Dentures in Louisville, Kentucky

Perhaps you’re only missing a few teeth but a bridge isn’t quite the solution for you. Partial dentures can be just what you need to enjoy a fully-functioning smile!

Caring for Your Dentures

It’s important that you keep your dentures clean just as you would your natural teeth. Keeping your dentures in a cleaning solution overnight can help ensure that they are clean and free from food particles and bacteria. Dentures can last up to 5-7 years if properly cared for, and you’ll need to visit your dentist regularly to make sure that your dentures are in the best shape for your needs.
