What is a Denturist?

 

We are known as a “licensed, painless practitioner.“ We do not drill, extract, cut or use needles. We do, however, provide to the public, dental prosthetics (dentures and partials) independent of a dentist. Denturism is a standalone practice recognized in seven states (Washington being one of them). Since we see the patient from the beginning of the process to the end, we can customize and tailor the prosthetic just for the individual. Additionally, to maintain our license and offer superior care, our denturist attends classes annually.

 

How Often Should I Visit my Denturist/Dentist?

 

We recommend at least once a year if you are completely edentulous (toothless) and more often if you have a combination of your own natural teeth and artificial ones. When we see you at the check-up, we can examine the health of your mouth and alert you in the event issues arise. We can also take a look at your dentures to help maintain them.

 

How Often Should I Replace my Dentures/Partials?

 

Generally, dentures should be replaced every 5-7 years because of jaw bone and surrounding gum tissue shrinkage. Ill fitting dentures may also cause sore spots and changes in a person’s facial features.

Partials should be replaced when the individual notices excessive food trapped under the partial or a new mouth configuration, such as the loss of another tooth.

 

How Do I Clean my Dentures?

 

Use a denture toothbrush. Hold the dentures over a towel or sink full of water in case they slip out of your hands. Rinse them with cool water (not hot) to remove food particles. Brush the denture/partial with a denture brush to remove any build-up and plaque. An ADA approved denture cleanser, liquid dish soap or hand soap can be used. Toothpaste damages the denture due to its abrasive nature. Please note that bleach, hot water, and alcohol can also harm the denture. When not worn, the prosthetic appliance may be kept in a covered container in water or an approved denture cleanser.
