Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures

At Swiss Denture Clinic, we are happy to answer any questions you may have about getting yourself, or perhaps a loved one, dentures. You can read the answers to some of the most common ones below or listen to Jennifer explain in the videos!

How long does it take to make dentures?

The process normally takes a few weeks. First you will come in for a few appointments where we will take impressions of your mouth and bite records before you get the chance to try out your completed teeth. Dentures are all made by hand, and taking the time to ensure they are the right fit helps avoid the need for refits and adjustments in the future.

Do dental implants hurt?

One of the largest roadblocks to receiving necessary treatment for many people is the fear of pain. The reality is that any minor pain associated with dental implant treatment can easily be treated with over-the-counter medication such as ibuprofen. The overwhelming response from our patients is they are surprised at how little pain they felt!

How should I care for my dentures?

After removing them from your mouth, you should thoroughly brush them with a special denture toothbrush using low-abrasion toothpaste and soak them afterward in an approved denture cleaner. Rinse your dentures thoroughly with water before reinserting them. It’s important to never use bleach or any other household chemicals as they can damage the denture and absorb into the plastic to leach back into your mouth later. With proper care and maintenance, your dentures should last you five to seven years.

How much do dental implants cost?

We need to meet you in person to determine if 1) you are a candidate and 2) what you want to achieve. To determine candidacy, we need to determine if you have enough bone and whether it is of sufficient quality for dental implants. Once we’ve determined what’s possible, we can then talk about the next step. Do you want fixed teeth or removable teeth? All of these questions can be answered by coming to see us for a consultation.

What is a surgical denture?

A surgical denture is inserted after natural teeth are removed. It’s not uncommon in the first few days after your teeth are removed to experience swelling, discomfort and difficulty chewing. Your denture will initially feel very snug but will loosen up as the swelling goes down, and you are encouraged to come see us for follow-up care, which include temporary relines and adjustments, to ensure the most comfortable fit. Your gums will look almost completely healed after a month or so but the bone beneath the surface heals more slowly and can take six months to a year to completely heal depending on your overall health.

How long does it take to get dental implants?

What people really want to know is: How long will I be without my teeth? From Day 1, you will have teeth in your mouth and be able to talk, smile and eat naturally. During this time, your bone and the implant will need about four to eight months to completely heal. At that point we can complete your treatment.
