How often should I see my dentist if I have dentures?

ANSWER

If you have dentures, your dentist or prosthodontist will tell you how often to visit, but every 6 months should be the norm. Regular dental visits are important so your dentures and your mouth can be examined to ensure proper fit, to look for signs of oral diseases including cancer, and to have teeth professionally cleaned.
