Get Your Healthy Smile Back with Our Naturally-looking and Comfortably-Fitting Dentures
Missing teeth can drastically change one’s appearance and, in severe cases, make a person look older. However, missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue. It is also an oral health issue since it can lead to several dental problems.
The jaw bone shrinks in size and density when you lose a tooth. When you lose several teeth, the significant loss of bone size leads to loss of lip and cheek support, causing changes in one’s facial appearance. Aside from this, missing teeth can also cause your remaining teeth to shift, leading to difficulty in chewing and opening of spaces between teeth, making it easier for bacteria to build up in your mouth and increasing your risk of gum disease.
Dentures are a practical way to replace missing teeth and regain your smile. They are artificial teeth replacements that can be removed and put back in your mouth. At AP Dental, we offer high-quality dentures that can restore your smile after tooth loss. We make our dentures with the latest technology and materials to look natural and provide a comfortable fit. We offer partial and complete dentures, so we can find the most suitable option for your individual needs.
Dental Problems You Need a Denture
Missing teeth can be embarrassing, especially if they're visible when you smile or talk. In addition to the aesthetic concerns, missing teeth can lead to functional problems, such as difficulty chewing or speaking.
It is common for the remaining teeth to move and spread out towards the empty space when a tooth is missing. The movement can cause bite problems and lead to other dental problems like chipped or broken teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dentures
How do dentures work?
What are the benefits of dentures?
In addition, dentures prevent your face from sagging, which can make you look older than you are. When taken care of properly, a denture can last for years. Most importantly, dentures restore your confidence by giving you back your smile.
Are dentures comfortable when worn?
If you’ve been thinking about getting dentures, there’s never been a better time. With today’s dentures, you can enjoy the comfort and confidence of a beautiful smile.
What should I expect as a first-time denture wearer?
It could take about two months to fully get used to wearing dentures. Also, clean your dentures daily with a soft-bristled brush and nonabrasive cleanser to remove food debris and plaque. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, either! After a couple of months, you’ll be a pro at using your new dentures and enjoy their benefits!
How do I care for my dentures?
Maintaining your dentures is essential to maintaining their longevity and keeping your smile looking healthy. Here are a few tips on how to care for your dentures:
- Clean your dentures every day. A soft denture brush can help to remove plaque and food particles from your dentures. Avoid bending or twisting them when you brush them, and hold them over the sink with a soft washcloth so they don’t break in case you drop them.
- Keep your dentures moist by soaking them overnight in a gentle denture soaking solution or water. It will help keep them from drying out and cracking.
- Use products specifically designed for cleaning dentures. There are many different brands of denture cleaners available, so talk to your dentist about which one would be most appropriate for your dentures.
How long will my dentures last?
Dentures are a great way to restore your smile after tooth loss, and they can last for many years with proper care. The average timeline for replacing dentures is five to seven years, but it can vary depending on how well you care for them. In addition, the jawbone shrinks over time, so dentures eventually become loose. When this happens, dentures may need to be relined or replaced periodically for a comfortable fit.
How much do dentures cost?
You may schedule a consultation appointment at AP Dental so our experienced team of dentists can assess your needs and provide you with an accurate treatment cost.
Will my health fund cover the cost of my dentures?
It depends on your level of cover. Most major dental extras of private health funds include the cost of dentures. You may contact your health fund provider to check if dentures are covered in your policy.
