How long will my dentures last?

Dental Equipment | Dentures in FairfaxThe longevity of dentures is, of course, different for everyone; the generally accepted average lifespan, however, is five to eight years.

In reality, the dentures themselves could last much longer, but it’s not the prosthetic that is the problem. Throughout time, the shape and density of your jawbone are changing; this means that a denture that fit correctly when you first got it will gradually feel looser over time and cause discomfort and difficulty chewing.

Getting The Most From Your Dentures

One way to extend the lifespan of your dentures in Fairfax, VA is with the addition of dental implants. An implant is a biocompatible titanium post that is placed in your jaw, and the denture is designed to snap onto the implants. In addition to offering superior stability that holds the denture securely in place, implants also stimulate the growth of bone and tissue in your jaw.

The denture is not only stable, but implants eliminate the problem of shrinking jaw bone. By adding implants, Dr. Cerina Fairfax can create natural-looking, functional dentures that easily last as long as ten years.
