A good quality set of dentures should last 5-7 years. Yes, there are patients out there with dentures for 10+ years. The idea of changing the denture by 5-7 years allows for you to always have teeth with a sharp edge.
This reduces pressure on your support tissue and keeps things healthier for longer.
You might say ‘I’m eating okay with these’. Yes, you might be, but the increasing pressure happens very gradually, going unnoticed by the patients and meanwhile the gum is slowly being lost.
Again, the rule is 5 – 7 years. This creates less chance for boneloss, staining of the teeth, or breakdown of natural elements of the acrylic material, thus, providing a safer and healthier oral environment
