Regular maintenance of dentures is vital in maintaining their functionality. Dentures are designed to last approximately 5 years. Within this time, the dentures can wear down, gums can shrink or bite radius can change. These factors cause dentures to become loose which may result in gum irritation and sores, amongst other ailments. Installing new full dentures can amend these factors. For a full set of dentures, it normally takes 4 to 5 visits over a 3 week period.

Depending on the amount of teeth lost and material used, partial acrylics are usually a lot smaller than full plates. They cover a portion of the palate on the upper or a horse shoe shape on the lower. These dentures are held in place on the gum by clasps or clips. They can normally be made in a few days.
