Exams, Care & Maintenance
Dentures are an investment that require care and attention. Precision Denture Clinic will help you maintain your dentures and oral tissues to maintain optimum performance and comfort. The fit and function of your dentures and oral tissues are an integral part of your well-being. An annual examination by your denturist will ensure peace of mind.
Your annual examination consists of the following:
Medical & Dental History
Updating your medical and dental history is a significant segment of your patient files. Changes in your medical and or dental health may affect the fit and function of your dentures.
Oral Cavity Examination
Annual examinations can assist in detecting oral abnormalities. The mouth, head and neck regions are assessed.
Tissue & Bone Examination
Changes in tissue and bone can occur for a number of reasons. Ill-fitting dentures may cause further bone and tissue changes. Our denturist will assess and recommend solutions for your consideration.
Fit & Feel of Your Dentures
Poor fitting dentures can lead to bite problems, speech impediments and tissue irritations. Leaving these conditions unchecked can cause future complications.
Dentures are assessed for hairline cracks, chips and broken or loose teeth. Seemingly small blemishes to your denture can have a major effect on its overall integrity.
Care & Maintenance
Dentures are cleaned and polished. Oral hygiene and care instructions are reviewed. Counselling is provided on any and all present or future procedures or concerns.
