Denture Exams & Maintenance Chapel Hill NC
Your dentures are an investment and need care and maintenance to work at their best. Your oral tissues and general health will be significantly impacted by how well your dentures fit. Dr. Lehmann will check your denture annually to make sure it is functioning properly.
Medical and Dental History Update
Maintaining your oral health and overall wellbeing depends on keeping your medical and dental histories updated with any important changes. A denture’s fit can be affected by a range of medical and dental issues.
Annual Oral Exam
Annual exams can help find abnormalities in the mouth, such as precancerous and cancerous tumors. In general, treatment benefits from these disorders’ early identification.
Tissue and Bone Assessment
For the sake of your oral health, improperly fitting dentures may result in bone and tissue alterations that need to be fixed. Our office can evaluate your needs and make recommendations for the best course of action.
Comfort, Fit, and Integrity of Dentures
An ill-fitting denture can result in bite issues, chewing difficulties, and tissue irritations, all of which should be treated. Future difficult circumstances may result from not treating this issue. Dr. Lehmann can examine your dentures for chips, cracks, broken, or loose teeth and make recommendations for repair.
