Speaking Confidently With Dentures

Learning how to speak with dentures may take some time but will become second nature with practice.

The sound of your voice travels […]

How Often Should I Be Screened for Oral Cancer?

When our patients come in for their free consultations, our team of professional denturists are looking for more than just tooth decay, gum disease, or bacterial infections.

What Are the Long Term Health Effects of Missing Teeth?

Our adult teeth are built to last long after we’ve lost our baby teeth. Unfortunately, people sometimes lose their adult teeth — often due to factors outside of our control. Some of the primary reasons people lose their adult teeth include genetics, disease, bacterial infections, accidents, or decay. Adult teeth are permanent which means that […]

Primary Reasons for Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is caused by the softening of your enamel as bacteria feed on the sugars in our food.

Finding Support as a New Denture Wearer

We understand that getting your first set of new dentures can be intimidating. There’s a lot to learn and you may be worried about how people might perceive you if they learn you wear dentures. Some patients are concerned that they’ll have nobody to relate to once they start wearing dentures. This fear can cause […]

Dentures, like natural teeth, require maintenance and daily cleaning. If a patient allows bacteria to build up on their dentures it could lead to bad breath, inflammation, infection, and gum disease. Small daily habits are the key to maintaining a healthy smile and gums. When we begin to skip flossing, brushing, and visiting the dentist […]
