No doubt, dentures are an investment. But the confidence, comfort, and freedom they provide can be invaluable. At Aspen Dental, we always offer our patients low everyday prices and no surprises – we’ll provide a clear, detailed estimate on the cost of your treatment plan in writing, so you know what to expect.

Between 5 and 7 years. Just like natural teeth, dentures wear down and stain with age. Your mouth is constantly changing. To make sure your dentures fit properly, they will need adjustments from time to time. We suggest seeing your dentist yearly for a denture check-up. You should always notify your dentist at the first sign of irritation, no matter how minor it may seem. Your health and comfort are important.

Aspen Dental dentures are custom-crafted to suit you - making them incredibly comfortable and natural looking.

At the beginning of the denture process, there is a "try-in" period. Your teeth will be positioned in wax so you and your dentist can see what your dentures will look like. This is a great opportunity to discuss the appearance and make adjustments, so you'll be happy with the end result.

Many patients notice that once they get dentures, pronounced facial lines are softened, giving them a more youthful look. We want our denture patients to be proud of their smile. Don't be afraid to show it.

Adjusting to dentures takes time and patience, but you'll get used to them before you know it. Our dentists will be happy to help you work through any challenges and explain the best ways to get used to biting and chewing with your new dentures.

Dentures may feel strange at first. They may seem too big, and you may notice an increase in saliva. This is normal. Once your facial muscles and oral tissues adapt, your dentures should feel very comfortable. Some people adjust to dentures in a week, while others take a little longer.

Always clean your dentures over a basin of water or a damp towel to avoid breakage if you drop them. Hold them gently between your thumb and fingers and brush them using a denture brush and denture cleaner or soap - all readily available at any drugstore. Use only lukewarm water and avoid gritty pastes or powders. You should clean your dentures after every meal.

There may be minor differences at first. Don't be concerned. Once your mouth is accustomed to the change, this should subside. Reading aloud is an excellent exercise for helping to restore normal speech quickly.

Every case is different. Your dentist will let you know what's right for you. There are special precautions to take with your dentures when they are not being used. Your dentist will explain these to you.
