Regular dental visits for patients with dentures

Dental Ventures Maintenance

Some people think that once they get dentures, they won’t need to go to the dentist anymore. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Regular dental visits are very important for maintaining good oral health, even with dentures.

Your dentures are an investment and require care and attention to maintain their optimum performance. The fit of your dentures will have a profound effect on your oral tissues and health. An annual examination by Dr. Ruth Rojas will help ensure your denture is functioning properly. Is important to understand that ill-fitting or broken dentures not only make it hard to speak and eat, they also harbor bacteria compromising the health of remaining teeth, gums.

During your denture maintenance visit, your dentures will be checked to evaluate fit, suction and repairs. The dentist will remove the denture to check the health of the tissue under it. Sore spots will be adjusted if they exist. Furthermore, an oral cancer screening exam is a fundamental part of routine.

Routine Venture Dental Checkups

A regular exam can help identify potential issues before they become problems. A variety of medical and dental conditions can alter denture fit.

A denture check-up is not much different from your regular dentist visit. Our team will update your medical and dental history chart. Dr. Rojas will examine your oral cavity, assess tissue and bones, check denture stability and examine your bite. We will also clean your dentures and discuss oral hygiene. It’s a non-invasive, quick visit that is very important to your oral health.

For several important reasons, seeing a dentist at least annually is still a good idea even for denture wearers. Want to know more about our Dentures Maintenance program? Call our office at 941-951-7711 for more information.
