Question:  How long do dentures last?

Answer: Proper care and cleaning will increase the life of your dentures. Although they typically last five years, proper care and minimal jaw recession can extend the life of dentures up to 25 years. Dentures should be cleaned daily with a stiff denture brush and with specially-made denture toothpaste.  It is important to remove them at night when you sleep to allow the tissues to breathe. In order to prevent dentures from warping, they should be left in water overnight. Over time, the lining of the dentures will change, owing to the wear and tear of daily use. In the case of tissue/bone shrinkage from weight loss, worn down teeth, or breakage, dentures may come loose and need to be remade.
