temporary denture care
The purpose of your temporary denture is for space maintenance and esthetics during your healing time. It is not a your permanent functional dental restoration. The doctor will instruct you on how long to wear it daily.
Please be mindful to eat softer foods while wearing your denture. Do not bite into anything hard, crunchy or chewy on the denture.
Remove the denture carefully, avoiding to pull on the denture tooth or metal clasps. Pull evenly from right to left side of the denture base.
Clean your denture with a denture cleaner or non-abrasive toothpaste. Use a soft bristle toothbrush to gently clean the surface. Rinse your denture thoroughly in cold to tepid water. Please avoid hot water, it may deform your denture.
Broken within the first month of normal use: no fee to repair.
Broken after the first month: repair fee applied.
Repair of denture made from a different dental office: repair fee applied.
We will reline your temporary denture 2x within the first SIX MONTHS as a courtesy. Charges for relining will apply thereafter.
