Candidates for Dentures

Did you know that around one-quarter of adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures?

    To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment you should:
  • Wish to replace several or all of your teeth.
  • Not smoke or use other tobacco products.
  • Have a healthy jawbone (we can help you with this!).
  • Not suffer from dry mouth.
  • Be prepared to take good care of your dentures at home.
  • Continue to visit the dentist for routine exams – just like with natural teeth!

How do I take care of my dentures? Take care of your dentures with routine cleanings and examinations. Even patients with perfect prosthetics need to visit their dentist from time to time. During your visit, we will take a look at your dentures and how they’re fitting and we will also examine your gums, tongue, jaw and mouth inside and out. In short-- we care about your oral health. Not just your teeth.

    To care for your dentures at home:
  • Remove dentures overnight to let your mouth rest.
  • Soak dentures in warm water with or without denture cleanser.
  • Do not soak dentures with metal clasps in anything but warm water.
  • When not wearing dentures, keep them in water so they don’t dry out and warp.
  • DO NOT soak in hot water.
  • With dentures removed, clean and massage your gums.
  • If your toothbrush hurts your gums, run it under warm water or try using a finger wrapped in a clean damp cloth.
  • If you have partial dentures, brush your natural teeth as usual.

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.

All of the staff were so kind, friendly and helpful and Dr. Lamiaa was excellent - friendly, professional, and she explained everything she was doing and everything she discovered about my teeth fully and in a way that was easy to understand. The dentist and staff were so patient and gentle with my kids, they really helped them to relax.

A great office with great staff! The environment is relaxing and everyone is very knowledgeable, I appreciate the great work that they do.

Donna Golding

I joined my husband and daughter in attending Dundas Dental Care some five years ago. I have been very satisfied with the care and professionalism of the entire staff. It’s very important to establish a level of trust and I have noted the thoroughness in explanation before work is performed. It has put me at ease and I have been far more regular in my cleanings and check-ups as a result of each preceding visit. I would recommend this practice to any age and gender.
