Dentures Over 5 Years Old?

If you have been wearing the same dentures for more than five years without having it checked by your denturist, you are running unnecessary risks.  Too many people believe that dentures are good for 20 years.  Nothing could be further from the truth!

Dentures are made of a hard, ridged material.  Your face, mouth and jaw, on the other hand, change over the years.  Because artificial teeth wear down with time, a denture cannot do its job effectively for more than about five years.  This reality can have devastating consequences that are often invisible and imperceptible to the wearer of a worn-out denture.

The effects suffered from worn-out dentures include:

  • Painful, irritated tissues
  • Difficulty chewing and poor digestion
  • Headaches, earaches, neck/TMJ pain
  • Sagging mouth, prematurely old face, pointed chin
  • Accelerated bone loss

…and this is only a partial list!

Dentures are not made to last forever and over time the acrylic becomes brittle and starts to break.  So if you are experiencing any of the above or if your dentures are 5 years old or more, please give us a call 905-459-7442 to book your complimentary assessment/consult or visit our website for more information www.bramptondentureclinic.com
