Denture Exams & Maintenance

Regular denture exams and maintenance are essential to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of your dentures. Just like any other investment in your health, taking care of your dentures will help you maintain a confident smile and optimal oral health.

During your denture maintenance appointment, you can expect Dr. Scott Butts to address several key components:

  1. Medical and Dental History Update: It is crucial to keep our dentist informed about any changes in your medical or dental history. This includes disclosing any new medications you may be taking or any emerging medical or dental conditions. This information helps us tailor your care to your specific needs.
  2. Oral Examination: Even if you wear dentures, regular dental checkups are necessary for maintaining overall oral health. These examinations enable us to identify any developing issues or abnormalities in your mouth and assess whether your dentures continue to meet your requirements. Additionally, we will perform a thorough cleaning and polishing of your dentures and discuss oral hygiene practices with you.
  3. Tissue and Bone Assessment: Ill-fitting dentures can lead to changes in your gum and bone tissues. Our dentist will evaluate the fit of your dentures and the overall condition of your mouth. If any issues are detected, we will promptly recommend solutions to address them.
  4. Comfort, Fit and Denture Integrity: Problems arising from poorly fitting dentures, such as speech difficulties, bite problems and tissue irritation, can often be resolved quickly. Timely correction of these issues not only ensures your dentures function correctly but also prevents potential complications in the future, maintaining a natural and comfortable fit.

Taking these steps to care for your dentures annually can help you enjoy a confident smile and optimal oral health.
