Beginning the Denture Process
It’s no secret that investing in dentures is a big deal for you and your smile. That’s why it’s important to make sure you give them the care and attention they need to avoid damage. How your dentures fit has a profound effect on your oral tissues and health. We usually recommend an annual exam so that we can check on your dentures to ensure they continue to function the way they should. A visit with us also gives our team a chance to be on the lookout for any oral abnormalities including cancerous or precancerous lesions. Early detection is always key for effective oral cancer treatment.
We also like to make sure your medical and dental history is always current and up-to-date so that we can be aware of any new medications or complications. Your Peotone dentist will also check the comfort, fit, and integrity of your dentures to avoid:
- Bite problems
- Speech impediments
- Tissue irritations
Leaving these conditions unchecked can lead to pain and complicated situations down the road. No matter what you need to keep your dentures functioning properly, we’re always here to help.
