    Why should I buy from Avenida Denture Clinic?

    We have been constructing cosmetic dentures in our own in-house lab since 1995. We apply all our skill and knowledge to provide you a denture which perfectly suits both the shape of your mouth and your smile. Your dentures will be crafted using quality dental materials to fit perfectly and function with the high standards set forth by our profession. Should any problems develop in regard to fit or function, or should any breakage occur due to any defect or lack of integrity in materials under normal wearing conditions within six months, we will replace or repair the defect at no charge.

    Should I use store-bought liners?

    Some of the materials used in these products can ruin the overall fit of your dentures. We say, “Leave them alone.” We provide an excellent soft reline material, the same one we use in our clinic, and it will definitely not ruin the fit of your dentures.

    How should I clean my dentures?

    Ideally, your dentures should be cleaned after every meal. If this is impractical, clean them as soon after eating as possible. Always clean your dentures over a basin of water or a damp towel to avoid breakage should you drop them. Most denture cleaners are a major disappointment. We highly recommend NuDent.

    How quickly will I adjust to dentures?

    Dentures are a substitute for your natural teeth and will therefore feel strange at first. Nature designated several years for us to get our natural teeth. Some will feel comfortable with their dentures in a week some take considerably longer. A positive attitude and being aware of the adjustment that is taking place really helps. At first you may feel your new teeth are too big and your mouth and lips are too full. An increase in the flow of saliva in your mouth is a normal response to the unfamiliar object. But, your facial muscles and oral tissues will adapt to the dentures in a very short time and you should soon feel quite comfortable with them.

    How will dentures affect my eating?

    Adjustments require time and patience, but don’t be discouraged. You have only to learn to bite and chew in a slightly different way. When biting food with natural teeth, the tendency is to pull forward. Instead of pulling out as you bite, push the food forward a little and bite completely through it. Start with small portions of food and eat slowly. Biting into an apple and eating corn on the cob are probably things you may want to avoid.

    Will dentures affect my appearance?

    Denture technology has, over the past few decades, become a fine art. Dentures are personalized at Avenida Denture Clinic to suit you and to look completely natural. During the process of making your new dentures, there will be a “try-in.” It will be a preview, and we will discuss the appearance. Changes in appearance can be adjusted at this stage so you will be happy with the result.

    How long will my dentures last?

    Normally, about five years. Natural teeth wear down and stain over the years, and your dentures will too. The tissue in your mouth undergoes constant change; therefore your dentures will require adjusting and refitting in order to continue to fit perfectly. Be sure to see your denturist at the first sign of irritation or frequent sore spots, no matter how minor you may feel it to be.
