How Long Should Dentures Last?
Denture Repair in Glenelg & Somerton Park
You should never consider your first set of dentures as your last.
Many people believe their dentures should last forever, but this is not so. Generally a denture should be reviewed every two years for remodelling/relining or replacement.
Apart from being worn down by continual use, the supporting tissue is actually changing. Even when your dentures feel quite comfortable, they should be inspected regularly to ensure no permanent damage is being done to the mouth.
If ever a sore or growth is discovered, you should immediately seek advice. These areas may be quite harmless and may not require minor adjustment to the denture, but only a professional can evaluate and rectify the situation.
If you feel you need us to check on the quality of your denture please call us for a FREE oral examination.
