Frequently Asked Questions.

The most common denture base material is a special formed acrylic plastic. Into this are set the artificial teeth of the selected size, shape and colour to conform with your personal characteristics.
Because changes occur in both the bone structure and the soft tissues of your mouth, your dentures (false teeth) are not permanent. Dentures need alterations, relining and eventually, replacing. New dentures are usually relined after two to three years. We recall our patients every two years to check out their “Denture Health.”
Ordinary toothpaste is abrasive and can wear away dentures. Brush your dentures with a soft toothbrush. Do not use bleach on dentures as it will weaken the teeth. An excellent way to clean your dentures safely and effectively is with a soak with an effervescent tablet. Then use Sunlight dish washing detergent.
If you experience tender or sore jaw muscles, difficulty in opening or closing your mouth, frequent headaches or a clicking or grinding noise when chewing or yawning, you may have TMD. It is more common in denture wearers than you think.
  • Correcting the bite.

  1. Bleeding Control: Apply pressure to the extraction site by biting on the gauze that was provided (for about one hour). Changing the gauze is not necessary, however if you do so, then dampen the gauze with water before placing it over the extraction sites. Don’t go home and lie down as the blood rushes to your head and it will take longer for the bleeding to stop. Remain upright for an hour while biting on the gauze.
  2. Smoking: Smoking delays healing and increases the chance of dry sockets (loss of the blood clot).
  3. Alcohol: Don’t drink alcohol for the next week as it expands the blood vessels and delays clotting.
  4. Preserving the blood clot: Do not disturb the socket for the next four days. Don’t drink through straws (you could dislodge the blood clot) and do not stick toothpicks or other objects into the socket.
  5. Rinsing: one teaspoon of salt in an eight ounce glass of warm water. Rinse your mouth gently six to eight times per day.
  6. Pain Control: Use the pain medication recommended by the Dentist. An ice pack applied to your face (20 minutes on, 20 minutes off) will help decrease the swelling.

Satisfied Customers.

I took my mother to Burnside Denture Clinic. She had been putting off getting her teeth extracted and seeing a dentist for years just because of her fear of them. After seeing Kent a few times she felt comfortable. She actually went through with the extractions and got a new set of dentures made. I remember sitting in the waiting room, hearing her laughter and saying, “Is she actually laughing”? My mother had never wanted to see a dentist or denturist let alone could laugh with one. My mother is no longer afraid and it makes it a lot easier on both of us. Because Kent made my mom so happy, I decided to get a new partial denture as well! I highly recommend this clinic.

I was having a lot of trouble with my denture staying in place and using a lot of denture adhesives. So i called Burnside Denture Clinic for a consultation and Mr. Roberts informed me about implants The implants did cost a pretty penny. With that being said I do not think of it as money wasted, every cent was worth it! My dentures snap right into place. They are easy to take out to clean as well. No more poly grip for me! My dentures are more stable and I’m eating things that i haven’t been able to for years! There is no more food getting stuck between my gums and teeth! Kent took good care of me and was always very polite. They really worked with me to get me the dentures as quickly as possible. I can honestly say that I will be going to Burnside Denture Clinic for my next set!
