Candidates For Dentures

Were you aware that approximately one-quarter of adults aged 65 and older have lost all of their teeth? Dentures offer a common and reputable solution to tooth loss. They are so reliable and lifelike that you might have conversed with someone who wears dentures without even realizing it. Are you considering whether you could benefit from dentures?

To be an ideal candidate for this restorative treatment, you should:

  1. Desire to replace multiple or all of your teeth.
  2. Refrain from smoking or using other tobacco products.
  3. Possess a healthy jawbone (and we can assist with this!).
  4. Not experience chronic dry mouth.
  5. Be committed to maintaining your dentures at home.
  6. Continue regular dental check-ups – just like you would for natural teeth!

How do you properly care for your dentures? Maintain your dentures with routine cleanings and check-ups. Even individuals with impeccable prosthetic teeth require periodic visits to the dentist. During these appointments, we will assess the condition of your dentures and their fit, as well as examine your gums, tongue, jaw, and overall oral health. In summary, we prioritize your oral health, not just your teeth.

To maintain your dentures at home, follow these guidelines:

  1. Remove your dentures overnight to allow your mouth to rest.
  2. Soak your dentures in warm water, either with or without denture cleanser.
  3. Avoid soaking dentures with metal clasps in anything other than warm water.
  4. When not wearing your dentures, store them in water to prevent drying out and warping.
  5. NEVER soak them in hot water.
  6. While your dentures are out, clean and gently massage your gums.
  7. If your toothbrush causes discomfort to your gums, rinse it under warm water or consider using a finger wrapped in a clean, damp cloth.
  8. If you have partial dentures, continue to brush your natural teeth as usual.

Cost Of Dentures In Napanee

The cost of full or partial dentures typically ranges from approximately $900 to $3,500 or more. The variation in denture prices is due to the availability of options tailored to diverse needs. Full-mouth dentures, for instance, may range from $1,800 to $3,500 and beyond, while the estimated cost for a complete set of implant-supported dentures averages around $30,000.

Several factors influence the cost of dentures, including:

  1. The type of denture required.
  2. Necessary dental extractions or preparatory procedures.
  3. Any required X-rays.
  4. The decision to incorporate supportive implants.

As each case is unique, it is crucial to consult with a dentist and undergo an oral examination. This allows us to assess your specific situation and present you with various treatment options to consider. We would be delighted to provide you with a more precise cost estimate tailored to your needs.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental bridges can be used to restore a gap caused by 1 to 3 missing teeth. Any number of missing teeth can be restored using dental implants. Dental implants typically have a higher initial investment cost and certain health requirements to qualify as a candidate for treatment.
With routine care and maintenance, your dentures should be good for 5 - 10 years. Aside from wear and tear on the dentures themselves, your mouth also changes over time and you may eventually decide it’s best to get fitted for a completely new set.
Yes, you can wear your dentures to bed but its recommended that you don’t. You should get into the habit of taking them out at night to soak so you can clean your mouth, gums and remaining natural teeth and then give your gums and jaw a chance to rest.
Your top dentures should suction to your gums. Your bottom dentures float above your gums but stay in place easily. Partial dentures should stay in line with natural teeth without moving very much. Implant-supported dentures snap in place and remain stable. If you’re questioning the fit of your denture, you are welcome to book an appointment so we can check your fit and make adjustments as needed.
After you’ve had some time to adjust to your dentures you should be able to eat almost anything. There are some foods that are hard on your dentures or that might cause rubbing or irritation. Foods that are hard or sticky like caramel, carrot sticks or a tough cut of meat or foods that contain little particles like popcorn or seeded crackers might present some challenge and should perhaps be enjoyed only as an occasional treat.

    The ladies at the front desk were nice & friendly greetings as per usual! They are always super nice!! Alicia is an amazing hygienist & is very informative! Super nice & is great to work with all the time, I'm sure, but especially if you are anxious like myself! Dr. Patel is also a great dentist, the best I've had, informative and he is also great to work with all the time but especially if you have anxiety as well!! Since I've started going here it's been a calming environment from the moment you walk in! I have such bad anxiety with getting dental work done of any kind but the staff here are amazing with that! I would, and I do, 100% recommend Napanee Smiles to everyone that I know dealing with dental issues or needs a new dentist or even to someone who already has a dentist but could use a better place to go! It's you guys!
