FAQS

Are dentures for me?

First Impression Denture Clinic creates well-crafted dentures that will restore your smile and allow you to have improved function, style and quality without compromising comfort. Our Denturists offer various types of dentures, depending on your needs.

Proper digestion and nutrition are critical to your overall health. When you are unable to chew your food effectively because of missing natural teeth, or you have excessively worn dentures, then you should see one of our Denturists for a free consultation.

HOW DO I KNOW DENTURES ARE RIGHT FOR ME?

Our Denturists will provide you with the professional advice you need to make an informed decision regarding the denture choice that is best for you.

 

The importance of a thorough consultation and examination with our Denturist is essential. This consultation gives you the chance to discuss your concerns and the treatment options available to you. It also allows our Denturists the opportunity to assess your oral condition and address your needs and expectations.

 

Chewing efficiently is the first step in digestion. Once the food is minced to a consistency that is safe to swallow, acids in the stomach break down the food further for your body to use.

 

If you suffer from heartburn, acid reflux, or other stomach-related problems, this may be due to your lack of chewing ability, dull teeth or other related denture concerns.

HOW LONG SHOULD DENTURES LAST?

Dentures are no different than other dental/medical devices or prostheses, they require regular maintenance by your Denturist and will eventually need to be replaced.

 

Our Denturists are the professionals who will advise you on your specific oral health needs and circumstances. Most dental insurance plans cover dentures every 5 years. Please contact us for more information on insurance coverage options.

DO YOU STILL HAVE SOME, BUT NOT ALL, OF YOUR NATURAL TEETH?

A partial denture replaces one or more missing natural teeth and is customized to a patient’s individual needs.

 

Removable partial dentures restore a person’s natural appearance and greatly improve the ability to chew and speak clearly.

 

With a partial denture from First Impression, you will look, feel and chew better.

WHAT CAUSES TOOTH DISCOLOURATION?
