Debunking Common Denture Myths


Are you considering  dentures for your missing teeth? Great decision! Dentures provide an appearance of a full set of teeth while letting you enjoy different foods. People often doubt the effectiveness of dentures due to some misconceptions. Determining the truth behind popularly held misapprehensions about dentures can help you focus on their benefits. Our clinics Integral Dental, Ellice Dental and Pearl Dental, aim to clear up those misconceptions with this blog. We provide quality dental care services to clients around Winnipeg. Our dentists are licensed and experienced to help you achieve ideal oral health.

Let’s look into a few of the common myths and misconceptions about dentures.

Myth 1: Others Can Tell You Are Wearing Dentures

Dentures are made to look like natural teeth. Not only will they resemble your original teeth but will also help improve your smile.

The only way people can notice your dentures is if they don’t fit you well. We will often have a try-in appointment to see how the dentures will look before they are finalized. Communication with the dentist is important to ensure you get the esthetics you desire.

Myth 2: It’s Difficult to Eat While Wearing Dentures

This is one of the most common misconceptions regarding dentures. Many foods are hard to eat without teeth. Having dentures will help you enjoy them with ease. If you feel that your dentures are becoming loose while eating, consult our dentist.

Myth 3: All Dentures Are the Same

It is important to tell your dentist exactly what you need, as not all dentures are the same. There are many different materials and designs that can be used. Our dentist will work with you on selecting the right type of dentures that will best fit your lifestyle.

Myth 4: Dentures Smell Bad

Bad oral hygiene can cause an unpleasant odour in any person’s mouth. Make sure you brush your dentures to remove plaque and soak them in water/solution overnight. All instructions will be provided to ensure that you are confident in keeping your dentures clean.

Myth 5: They Last Forever

Dentures are made of acrylic or porcelain to make them look as similar to your natural teeth as possible. They require some maintenance to keep them looking great. Dentures can crack, chip or break like natural teeth. To prevent this, we make sure that before you leave with your new dentures, you’ll feel comfortable placing, removing and taking care of them.
