Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Dentures?

For people who are looking for the lowest cost teeth replacement option or who are not candidates for dental implants, traditional dentures can provide a better quality of life.

With our on-site lab, we can offer our patients the best prices and, in some cases, same day denture services.

How can we make our dentures so budget friendly?

At Cincinnati Dentures and Implants, we have a denture lab on-site! This lets us eliminate the need for an outside denture lab and their higher prices. Other traditional dental practices often charge 2-4 times as much as we do. Not to mention they will take weeks or even months to get your new teeth when our office can do it all in as little as one day. We also have more experience than most offices because we limit our services to only dentures and implants.

Our denture prices begin as low as $1,549. Schedule a free consultation now to get started on your new smile!

Benefits of Immediate Dentures

  • No need to go without teeth | Leave our office with completely new teeth the same day your old teeth are removed.
  • Helps control swelling
  • Helps control bleeding
  • Helps you start getting used to dentures immediately | The alternative is going toothless while your extraction sites heal, and then having to learn to function with dentures after you’ve recovered.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are immediate dentures?

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

What is the process of getting immediate dentures?

This process usually takes 6 months, but can take more time for some patients.

  • Impressions are taken prior to the procedure with your natural teeth still present. From these impressions, your dentures are made.
  • 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 getting used to the new dentures?

This experience will be different for each 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 with time and we are here for you throughout the process.

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

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

How do dentures fit?

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

How will I chew with the new dentures?

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

I can’t taste as much with these dentures. Is this normal?

Yes, the palate of the full top denture covers the taste buds on the roof of the mouth reducing the taste sensitivity.

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

Yes, lower dentures are more difficult to function with than top dentures. Your tongue and cheeks moving push and pull on your bottom denture and dislodge it. Talk with the doctor to learn if you’re a candidate for lower implants. They can 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 a gap between the dentures and gums. We place soft liners in your dentures to fill in this gap. This should help your dentures fit and feel better as you heal.

What are denture adjustments and how often are they needed?

New dentures often have certain spots that rub slightly and can cause sore spots. During the denture adjustment, we will pinpoint the spot(s) on your denture that are irritating you, decrease the amount of pressure apply to the tissue, 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?

We provide denture adjustments free of charge for the first 6 months after receiving your final teeth or permanent hard reline. After this period, there is a small fee to adjust the dentures.

How do I care for my dentures?

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

What should I use to clean my dentures?

  • Either denture cleaner or antibacterial hand soap 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 remove my dentures when I sleep?

Yes, we do recommend taking your dentures out when you sleep and also whenever possible throughout the day. This gives your gums time to “rest” and get natural, cleansing saliva flow to them. Also, if you're a teeth grinder, removing your dentures will help you increase their usable life significantly.

Can I boil the dentures to clean them?

No! Do not boil your dentures to clean them. The heat can warp your dentures. If this happens, they will need to be replaced.

Can the dentures be damaged?

Yes, the dentures are made from an acrylic base and acrylic teeth. While these materials are quite strong, they can be damaged. Be careful to not drop them, especially onto hard surfaces like quartz countertops, ceramic tiles, etc.

One of the most common ways dentures can be damaged beyond repair is when a dog (or sometimes cat) gets ahold of them. Animals and pets love to chew on dentures and have been known to damage them irreparably quite fast. Be extra careful to put them up where your pet can’t reach them.

If my dentures are damaged, are they repairable?

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

Is there pain after the procedure?

While your experience may vary some, most patients should expect mild discomfort and some swelling afterwards. Many patients return the next day for their post op appointment reporting very little pain. All patients are prescribed medication for pain to help alleviate any discomfort.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

Excess saliva is completely normal when you first have an implant placed in your mouth. Your body senses it as a foreign object and is trying to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should decrease within 2-3 days.

Can I be put under for the procedure?

Our office does not currently use general anesthesia, however, we do provide both oral & IV conscious sedatives. Click here to learn more about the options. The medicine will help relax you and often makes it so you won't even remember the procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your local pharmacy. NOTE: You MUST have a driver to and from for this procedure, due to the oral sedation pill(s). 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?

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

What are the differences in your denture levels?

Our dentures offer better wear resistance, enhanced stain resistance, and longer warranties as you go up in levels.

Will I know how to eat with my dentures immediately?

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

Will I automatically know how to speak with my new teeth right away?

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

Can food get beneath my dentures(s)?

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

How much time should I take off work to recover after my extractions?

Typically 4-7 days is enough time to recover. With that said, since there is always the chance of swelling and bruising, and you’ll need to become accustomed to eating and speaking with your dentures, the more time you can take off, the better.

What are soft liners?

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

Am I 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 20s to need their teeth replaced. Replacing bad teeth can be quite beneficial to your overall physical health, and having the ability to laugh, converse, and smile 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 which covers roof of your mouth) removed from my denture?

Most of the palate of the denture needs to stay. Removing this also removes a great deal of security and almost 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 stop before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have some bleeding (oozing) for a few days after the procedure. Additionally, you'll most likely see increased salivation when we first place your temporary teeth. When this extra saliva mixes with a little blood, it can look like more blood than it is. If you experience heavy bleeding, please call our office.

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

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

There are many reasons which can cause sore gums: higher pressure spots, movement of the denture(s), and just ordinary wearing of the dentures.

  • High pressure spots | these are normal with new dentures and typically just require slight adjustments
  • Movement of the denture(s) | this can rub sores on your gums gradually. Securing your dentures with implants can greatly reduce this problem.
  • Wearing dentures | dentures are foreign objects in your body. They can be a wonderful replacement for missing teeth, but they can still aggravate the body after a long day. Consider setting aside time to take your dentures out and give your gum tissue a chance to "rest."

Can my dentures rock?

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

Denture adhesive can also be useful for some patients.

I don't like having the roof of my mouth covered. What options do I have?

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

Can I remove immediate dentures?

Yes, these are removable. They come in and out of the mouth and are kept secure either through natural suction for the upper or denture adhesive. Not everyone will have natural suction with their top denture for multiple reasons (palatal torus, flat palate, bone loss, etc.)
