Your dentures will periodically need to be replaced as your appliance wears out and your mouth changes. Dr. Joshua Rice will work with you to create new dentures so that you can continue to enjoy good oral function, a natural-looking smile and a healthy quality of life. We invite you to call Cascade Dental at 541-779-6401 to learn more about denture replacement in Medford, Oregon, and to set up your consultation with our experienced dentist.
The average lifespan of a denture is around five to eight years, and most dental insurance policies cover new dentures every five years. If you have had your dentures for a few years already, it may be time to start thinking about getting them replaced. Your gums and bone structure change over time, which in turn changes the bite of your denture, allowing the teeth of your appliance to eventually become worn. Replacing your dentures improves the fit and aesthetics of your appliance. The process for replacing your dentures is the same as the process to create your original appliance. It will include several appointments to capture images, design and fit your appliance, and make any needed adjustments. Your replacement dentures will likely not look, fit or feel exactly the same as your old denture. For example, the teeth in your new denture may appear larger because they have not yet been worn down with time. Your mouth may need a week or so to adjust to the new denture, and you could experience changes in your pronunciation and appearance until you adjust. Your mouth and surrounding muscles will need about three to four weeks to “reprogram” themselves and get used to your new dentures. You may also need to return to our office for adjustments as you relearn how to chew and become accustomed to your new dentures. Please follow the instructions provided by our dentist regarding the proper care and cleaning of your denture.
