Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Dentures?

For patients who are looking for the lowest cost teeth replacement option or for whom dental implants are not an option, traditional dentures offer an improved quality of life.

With our on-site lab, we are able to offer our patients the lowest prices and, in some cases, same day denture services.

How are our dentures so affordable?

At Orlando Dentures and Implants, we have a denture lab in-house! This allows us to eliminate the need to use an outside denture lab and their marked up prices. Other competing dental offices often charge 2-4 times as much as we do. Not to mention they will take weeks or even months to get the new teeth when our office can do it all in as little as one day. We also have more experience than other offices because we limit our services to dentures and implants.

Our dentures start as low as $1,549. Book a free consult now to get started on your new smile!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are immediate dentures?

As the name implies, immediate dentures are those which are placed immediately after the natural teeth are taken out. These dentures help control swelling and bleeding; they act like bandages over the extraction sites.

What is the process for getting immediate dentures?

The complete process typically takes 6 months, but can take more time for some patients.

  • Impressions are taken before the procedure with your natural teeth still present. From these impressions, the dentures are fabricated.
  • Procedure – your teeth will be extracted and your new teeth are placed.
  • Series of soft liners (soft re-fittings) over 6 month healing period.
  • Final re-fit (processed hard reline) at end of 6 month healing period.

What is it like to get used to these dentures?

This experience is different from patient to patient, but it does require practice and patience. Your mouth will be going through quite a lot of changes over the 6 month healing phase. Remember, this will get easier over time and we are here for you through the entire process.

Some dentures look so fake. Will mine look that way?

Absolutely not. A common fear patients have is that the dentures will not look natural and people will know they are dentures. Our talented lab team will make sure you won't end up with "horse teeth" or "chiclets," just beautiful, natural-looking teeth. No one will know.

How do dentures fit?

The fit of dentures mostly depends upon the anatomy of the person wearing them. Full top dentures often fit rather well, acting like a suction cup against the roof of your mouth. Full bottom dentures tend to feel loose and have an inclination to "float" in the mouth since your tongue and cheeks are constantly working to dislodge them. It's for this reason that we highly encourage dental implants with bottom dentures.

How will I chew with these new dentures?

Cut your food into small pieces, chew small bites, and chew with food on both sides of your mouth to even out your bite.

I can’t taste as much with my dentures. Is that common?

Yes, the palate of the complete upper denture covers the taste buds on the roof of the mouth reducing your taste sensitivity.

The lower denture is difficult to function with. Is this common?

Yes, lower dentures are more difficult to function with than upper dentures. Your tongue and cheeks moving push and pull on your lower denture and dislodge it. Speak with your doctor to see if you’re a candidate for lower dental implants. They help tremendously with lower denture fit and function.

My dentures feel like they’re getting loose?

This is common with immediate dentures. Your gums and jaws will shrink down after extractions. This leaves space between your dentures and gums. We place soft liners in your dentures to fill in this space. This should help them fit and feel better as you heal.

What are denture adjustments and how frequently will I need them?

New dentures often have certain spots that rub slightly and create sore spots. During a denture adjustment, we will pinpoint the spot(s) on your denture that are irritating you, reduce the amount of pressure they put on the gums, and smooth them thoroughly. This is completely normal with all new dentures and one or more adjustments should be expected.

Is there a charge for denture adjustments?

Our office provides denture adjustments at no charge for the first 6 months after delivery of your final teeth or permanent hard reline. After this period, there is a small fee to adjust your dentures.

How do I care for my dentures?

  • Clean your dentures every day with antibacterial hand soap and either a denture brush or a very soft bristled tooth brush
  • Store them in water when not in use

What do I use to clean the dentures?

  • Either antibacterial hand soap or denture cleaner and either a denture brush or a very soft bristled tooth brush. Scrub them at least once daily
  • Soak them in a denture cleanser (optional)
  • Ultrasonic cleaner

Should I take my dentures out when I sleep?

Yes, we do recommend taking your dentures out before sleeping and also whenever you can throughout the day. This gives your gums time to “rest” and get natural, cleansing saliva flow to them. Also, if you commonly grind your teeth, removing your dentures will help you increase their usable life significantly.

Should I boil my dentures to clean them?

No! Do not boil the dentures to clean them. The heat can warp your dentures. If this happens, you will have to replace them.

Can the dentures get damaged?

Yes, the dentures are made from acrylic teeth and an acrylic base. While these materials are quite strong, they can be damaged. Be careful not to drop your dentures, especially onto hard surfaces like porcelain sinks, tile floors, etc.

One of the most frequent ways dentures can be damaged beyond repair is when a dog (or sometimes cat) gets ahold of them. Animals and pets enjoy chewing on dentures and can often damage them beyond repair very quickly. Be extra careful to put your dentures up where your pet can’t get to them.

If my dentures get damaged, are they repairable?

Yes, in many cases they can. One of the best features of acrylic dentures is the affordability and ease of repairing them compared to other materials. And in most cases, repairs can be finished the same day.

Is there pain after this procedure?

While your experience may vary, you can expect some discomfort and possible swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the next day for their post op appointment reporting minimal soreness. You will be prescribed medication for pain to help reduce any discomfort.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

This is completely normal when you first have an implant placed in your mouth. Your mouth senses it as foreign material and is working to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should decrease within a few days.

Can I be put under for the procedure?

We do not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do provide both IV and oral conscious sedatives. Click here to learn more about the options. This medicine will help relax you and often makes it so you don’t even remember your procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have a driver both ways for this procedure, due to the sedation medication. You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

What are full dentures?

Full dentures are dentures that replace all of your natural teeth in either the upper arch, lower arch, or both.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are dentures that replace some of your missing teeth in an arch. They typically attach to the surrounding, natural teeth for stability and support.

What advantages can I expect from dentures?

  • Improved confidence | Great looks and a new smile.
  • Looks | Dentures offer great looks and are easily customized for each patient.
  • Facial support | Dentures help to fill back out areas of the face that have sunken in following tooth loss.
  • Improved nutrition | Better chewing ability leads to better digestion and improved nutrition.
  • Affordability | Dentures are the most cost-effective way to replace a full arch (upper or lower) or an entire mouth of teeth.
  • Improved quality of life

What are the differences between denture levels?

Our dentures provide improved wear resistance, better stain resistance, and longer warranties as you move up in levels.

Will I know how to eat with my new teeth immediately?

Just like you would need practice in order to get used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will require some patience and practice to get used to the prosthetic teeth. Patience and practice are the keys to improving with your new dentures as quickly as you can.

Will I know how to talk with my prosthetic teeth right away?

Again, this will take a little time, but with some practice and patience, your tongue and mouth will adjust quickly. "S’s" will be the trickiest to pronounce. Practicing saying words like "stupendous" and "Mississippi" will help you get used to your new teeth. In a few cases, patients may experience a small lisp long-term with dentures.

Can food get beneath my dentures(s)?

Yes, any prosthetic in your mouth will get some amount of food under it. The convenient thing about dentures is how easy it is to clean them. Simply take them out; clean your gums and the denture(s); and put them back in.

How long should I take off work for recovery after my extractions?

Typically 4-7 days is sufficient time to recover. That being said, as there is always the chance of swelling and bruising, and you will need to get used to speaking and eating with your dentures, the more time you can take off, the better.

What is a soft liner?

A soft liner is a cushion that is placed inside your denture through the healing process. It fills in the spaces which are created as you heal helping your dentures to fit and feel better.

I feel like I’m too young for dentures?

No, this is not just a procedure for seniors. It’s actually quite common for people in their 40s, 30s, and even 20s to need their teeth replaced. Replacing bad teeth can be extremely beneficial to your overall physical health, and having the ability to smile, laugh, and converse confidently with teeth you can be of can benefit your emotional health.

What items should I have ready for after my procedure?

  • ice packs
  • wash cloths you don’t mind throwing away
  • comfortable clothes you don’t mind throwing away
  • soft foods such as:
  • soups
  • yogurt
  • cottage cheese
  • smoothies
  • protein shakes
  • eggs
  • mashed potatoes (gravy optional)

Can I have the palate (middle portion that covers roof of your mouth) removed from the denture?

Most of the palate of the denture needs to remain. Cutting this out removes a lot of security and nearly all of your natural suction. A portion of the palate may be removed for patients with denture implants.

What are tori? Do they need to be removed?

Tori are bony knots that develop in the mouth of many patients. They are not harmful, however, they can prevent your denture(s) from fitting comfortably, so your doctor will often recommend having them removed.

How long can I expect to bleed after surgery?

Substantial bleeding will have stopped before you leave our office, however, you can expect to have slight bleeding (oozing) for 1-3 days after the procedure. Additionally, you'll most likely see increased salivation when we first put your temporary teeth in. When this increased saliva mixes with a small amount of blood, it can look like a lot of blood. If heavy bleeding continues, please call our office.

A home remedy which still works quite well to encourage clotting and reduce bleeding is the use of tea bags. Just get a standard tea bag, dampen it, squeeze out the excess water, place it on your extraction site (or sites), and the bags will help you heal. Multiple tea bags can be used if needed. Replace the tea bags if they get saturated with blood. This process can be repeated as many times as you need.

My dentures make my gums sore, what can I do for this?

There are several things which can cause sore gums: higher pressure spots, movement of the denture(s), and just plain old wearing of the dentures.

  • High pressure spots | these are normal with new dentures and often only require simple adjustments
  • Denture movement | this can rub sores on your gums gradually. Stabilizing your dentures with dental implants significantly reduces this issue.
  • Wearing dentures | dentures are foreign objects in the body. They are a fantastic replacement for missing teeth, but they can still aggravate the body after a long day. Consider planning time to take your dentures out and give your gums a chance to "rest."

Will my dentures rock?

Yes, it is possible. Dental implants often give the stability that is missing with dentures alone. Click here for more info.

Denture adhesive can also be helpful for some patients.

I can’t stand having something covering the roof of my mouth. What are my options?

Dental implants often give the security you need. Click here for more info.

Are immediate dentures removable?

Yes, they can be removed. They come in and out of the mouth and are kept in place either by natural suction for the upper or denture adhesive. Not everyone will have natural suction with their upper denture for multiple reasons (palatal torus, flat palate, bone loss, etc.)
