Denture Exams & Maintenance

Dentures on top of formsYour dentures are an investment and require care and attention to maintain their optimum performance. The fit of your dentures will have a profound affect on your oral tissues and health. Even if your dentures are replacing all of your teeth, we still recommend an annual examination by Dr. Reece will help ensure your denture is functioning properly.  In addition to the examining the functionality of your dentures we also conduct a head and neck oral cancer screening.

Oral exam

Annual examinations can assist in detecting oral abnormalities including cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. Early detection of these conditions is generally beneficial for treatment.

Tissue and bone

Ill-fitting dentures may cause bone and tissue changes and need to be corrected for your oral health. Our practice can assess and recommend solutions to suit your personal needs.

Comfort, fit, and integrity of dentures

Bite problems, speech impediments and tissue irritations can be caused by an ill-fitting denture and should be remedied. Leaving this condition unchecked can lead to complicated situations in the future. Dr. Reece can assess your dentures for cracks, chips, and broken or loose teeth and suggest solutions.   Converting your dentures to Implant retained or Implant supported dentures is an option for most patients, even if you already have a set of dentures.  I you have questions about this please make sure to ask Dr. Reece on your next visit.
