Implant Dentist Maspeth NY: Dentures

Dr. Alexandra Khaimov, Implant Dentist Maspeth NY: Most people would be surprised to discover that the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends replacing a denture every 5 to 7 years. Although dentures are durable, they won’t last forever and as dentures age they become more porous and capable of housing harmful and odor causing bacteria.

The side effects associated with wearing dentures older than 7 years are numerous and range from accelerated resorption of the gums, to headaches and bad breathe. Since the mouth is in a constant state of change a replacement denture every 5-7 years also helps to maintain a healthy natural appearance.
