It is critical to maintain your dentures to ensure maximum comfort, chewing efficiency and appearance. An annual checkup is an opportunity to identify problems and possibly save you money and trouble in the future.
An annual recare/recall appointment is important to ensure the following possible concerns are examined by your Denturist:
Over time, your mouth undergoes inevitable changes. Shrinkage (atrophy) of the underlying jaw bone on which your dentures rest is inevitable. The soft gum tissue that covers the jaw bone will also change over time. Your denture’s fitting surfaces do not change over time and your dentures may not fit as they once did.
Having an annual oral exam may help prevent or detect the existence of oral cancer or other abnormal conditions.
Updating both your medical and dental history is an important step towards quality overall treatment, as changes may directly affect the fit of your dentures.
Your Denturist can help you achieve and maintain optimum oral health.
