Your lower arch, upper arch, or both arches of teeth can be restored using dentures in Medford. For individuals who have lost the majority of their teeth due to aging, conditions like gum disease, or severe tooth trauma, they are the preferred dental replacement.
The “tissue side” of a denture’s base, which sits directly on the jaws, must fit properly for the device to be stable, retain its shape, be comfortable to wear and perform as intended. Additionally, this portion does alter through time and so affects how long an appliance can last.
A denture’s lifetime may also be impacted by the robustness of the materials used in its construction. This may perhaps be a factor to take into account when deciding between “premium” and “economy” dentures.
Plastic components, such as teeth and denture base materials, will inevitably deteriorate over time. Replace or fix the damaged parts of your dentures could be possible. However, wearing a denture is typically accompanied by slow changes to the patient’s jaws, joints, ridge height, and facial features.
How long a denture lasts can depend on the durability of the materials used to make it. Repairing damage to an appliance, such as a fractured denture base or reattaching a missing tooth, is frequently achievable and is commonly done. Repairs often don’t provide the same level of strength as a prosthesis’ initial materials, which can be a drawback.
The length of durability will differ depending on the factors indicated above, as well as the type of denture you have. It will last for only a few months for immediate or temporary dentures. Following the removal of your natural teeth, your dentist will fit you with immediate dentures, which you will wear for two to three months until your actual dentures are ready.
Statistics show that partial dentures can last up to 15 years, while full dentures can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years. Your mouth and dentures may experience significant changes over this time, resulting in an uncomfortable fit and an unattractive appearance. Contact us if you want your dentures adjusted.
