With proper care—cleaning and maintenance—dentures can last for years. However, dentures generally don’t last a lifetime.

If it has been a while since you’ve replaced your dentures, consider scheduling an appointment with our Aurora, IL dental office.  Our Aurora dentures are second to none!

Meanwhile, assess your dentures and denture fit for signs that it’s time for a replacement. At Prairie Dental Care, we create beautiful replacement dentures all the time.

Loose Dentures

When you lose your teeth, your jawbone shrinks. Over time, this means your dentures don’t fit the way they did when you first got them.

If you notice slippage or if you’re constantly applying adhesives or scheduling realigns, this is a sign you need to replace your dentures.

Ill-fitting dentures can change the way you speak and interfere with eating.

Worn or Cracked Dentures

If you notice worn spots or cracks in your dentures, it is only a matter of time before your denture breaks.

Unfortunately, this can happen when you’re out with friends or prior to an important event.

Unsightly Dentures

Today’s dentures are superior to dentures from the past. And we see many patients who are simply unhappy with the looks of their older-style dentures.

Our Aurora dentures are natural-looking and custom-designed to fit your mouth. They look natural, and no one will know you’re wearing a denture.

Denture Replacement Process

Our replacement denture process starts with a comprehensive mold of your mouth. We use this mold to create aesthetically appealing dentures that fit your smile.

After your new denture is completed, it’s important to visit your dentist regularly for gum exams and oral changes.
