Candidates For Dentures

Were you aware that approximately one-quarter of adults aged 65 and older have lost all of their teeth? Dentures offer a common and reputable solution for addressing missing teeth. They are so reliable and natural-looking that you might have conversed with someone wearing dentures without even realizing it. Are you considering if dentures are the right choice for you?

To be a suitable candidate for this restorative treatment, you should:

  • Desire to replace multiple or all of your teeth.
  • Not smoke or use other tobacco products.
  • Possess a healthy jawbone (we can assist you with this!).
  • Not experience chronic dry mouth.
  • Be committed to proper denture care at home.
  • Maintain regular visits to the dentist for routine exams – just like you would for natural teeth!

How do I take care of my dentures?

Ensure the proper care of your dentures through regular cleanings and check-ups. Even individuals with flawless prosthetic teeth should make periodic dental visits. During your appointment, we will assess the fit and condition of your dentures, as well as conduct a thorough examination of your gums, tongue, jaw, and the overall health of your mouth. In essence, we prioritize your overall oral health, not just your teeth.

Here are some tips for denture care at home:

  • Remove your dentures overnight to allow your mouth to rest.
  • Soak your dentures in warm water, either with or without denture cleanser.
  • Avoid soaking dentures with metal clasps in anything other than warm water.
  • When not wearing dentures, keep them in water to prevent drying and warping (DO NOT use hot water).
  • With your dentures removed, clean and massage your gums.
  • If your toothbrush feels harsh on your gums, rinse it with warm water or try using a clean, damp cloth wrapped around your finger.
  • If you have partial dentures, continue to brush your natural teeth as usual.

Frequently Asked Questions

The quality of dentures can vary based on several factors, including the materials used and the skill of the dentist or prosthodontist crafting them. High-quality dentures are typically custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth precisely and are fabricated using durable materials. Premium dentures often provide a more natural appearance, better fit, and increased comfort.

In Ontario, Canada, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) does not generally cover the cost of dentures for adults. However, the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) may provide assistance for eligible individuals. Additionally, private dental insurance plans may offer coverage for dentures, but the extent of coverage can vary widely among plans. It’s advisable to check with your insurance provider for specific details regarding coverage.

In Ontario, Canada, dentures may be tax-deductible under certain conditions. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) allows individuals to claim a non-refundable tax credit for medical expenses, which includes dentures, through the Medical Expense Tax Credit (METC). To qualify, the total medical expenses must exceed the lesser of 3% of your net income or a set base amount specified by the CRA. It’s important to keep all receipts and documentation for your dental expenses. Since tax laws and regulations can change, it’s recommended to consult with a tax professional or refer to the CRA’s most current guidelines for detailed information on medical expense deductions.

It is recommended to remove dentures at night to allow the gums and oral tissues to rest and recover from the pressure and friction caused by wearing dentures throughout the day. This practice can help reduce the risk of oral tissue irritation, inflammation, and fungal infections. Additionally, removing dentures at night promotes better oral hygiene, as it allows for thorough cleaning of both the dentures and the mouth.

Dentures can feel uncomfortable initially, as they are foreign objects in the mouth. However, with proper adjustments and acclimatization, many individuals find that dentures become more comfortable over time. Regular dental visits can help address any discomfort or fitting issues, ensuring a better experience with dentures.

The dentist is never anybody's favorite place to spend time. With many hesitations but needed a second opinion on something I decided to give Brighton Dental Center a try. I will say this is the best dental experience I have ever had, the girls are amazing very professional always smiling and kind. Scheduling is made very simple and easy and lots of reminders on upcoming appointments. They help dealing with insurance and are very upfront with costs, what is covered and with the main priorities are. If it's not broken they don't fix it and I think that's what I love the most about this place. Thanks for a great experience. Brendan
