Dentures FAQs

Do dentures look and feel like natural teeth?

Yes, dentures can be made of high-quality resin or porcelain material which is color-matched to natural teeth. This solution also makes it easier for patients to bite and chew. Dentures soon feel like natural teeth, especially when secured with dental implants for added support.

Can you sleep with dentures in?

If you are receiving removable dentures, then you should remove them before going to sleep. However, implant-secured dentures are a permanent restoration and do not need to be removed.

What happens if I don’t wear my dentures?

If you have removable dentures and do not wear them, you are at risk for TMJ and gum disease. Any remaining natural teeth will be put under pressure when biting and chewing. It is recommended that you wear removable dentures during the day.
