Denture Exams & Maintenance

Your dentures are an investment and require care and attention to maintain their optimum performance. The fit of your dentures will have a profound affect on your oral tissues and health. An annual examination by Dr. Hernandez-Ramírez or Dr. Lasanta-García will help ensure your denture is functioning properly.

Annual Oral Exam

Annual examinations can assist in detecting oral abnormalities including cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. Early detection of these conditions is generally beneficial for treatment.

Tissue and Bone Assessment

Ill-fitting dentures may cause bone and tissue changes and need to be corrected for your oral health. Our practice can assess and recommend solutions to suit your personal needs.

Comfort, Fit and Integrity of Dentures

Bite problems, speech impediments and tissue irritations can be caused by an ill-fitting denture and should be addressed. Leaving this condition unchecked can lead to complicated situations in the future. Dr. Hernandez-Ramírez can assess your dentures for cracks, chips and broken or loose teeth and suggest solutions.
