If you can’t find the information you want, you can contact us directly here in New Lenox, IL for further insight about this reliable reconstructive service.
Are There Different Types of Dentures?
Yes. You can get dentures that will replace all of your teeth or just some of them. The ones that replace all of your teeth are “complete” dentures. Dentures that replace only some of your teeth are “partial” dentures.
Do Dentures Slip?
This is one of the most common questions we receive, and its origin goes way back. You probably heard horror stories from your grandparents about embarrassing moments caused by slipping dentures. The fact is, though, that today’s dentures fit very well. The chances of experiencing any slipping and sliding is slim to none.
Are Dentures Expensive?
It pretty much depends on what you expect. Dentures are not generally expensive, but the more you want, the more you will pay. If you want a set of dentures that looks good and works well, chances are you won’t be all that much out of pocket. However, if you want a set of dentures that look exactly like your natural teeth, you might end up paying a bit more.
Are Dentures Hard to Care For?
Not in the least! In fact, if you make sure not to drop them and you clean them regularly, you can expect your dentures to last you for a very long time.
Can I Use Toothpaste on My Dentures?
It’s not a good idea. Toothpaste is generally meant to be used on natural teeth and could harm your dentures. You should use a cleanser that is specially formulated for your dentures.
