How Long Do Dentures Last?

Wax try-in Dentures

Your basic dentures will last about 5 years. Investing a little more in a stronger material can make your dentures last 7-10 years. Depending on your eating habits and of course the strength of your jaw muscles, these numbers can vary from person to person.

It’s also very common for gums to shrink over time which causes dentures to become loose fitting. This is when we do a Reline. A reline is when we add material to the inside of the denture to improve the fit. This can be a temporary fix until a new set of dentures can be completed.
