FAQ

Dr. Aaron C. Polk, DTI DenturesWhat are dentures?
Dentures are removable prostheses designed to replace lost teeth comfortably and naturally.

Am I a candidate for dentures?
The need for dentures will depend on your current oral health, as will the type of denture needed. To properly wear any dentures, patients must have healthy gum tissue and a healthy jawbone. To decide which option is best for you, call DTI Dentures to schedule a consultation.

How will Snap-On Dentures affect my eating?
Due to the posts that hold Snap-On Dentures in place, no covering over the palate of your mouth is required. This allows you to fully experience the tastes and temperature of your food, bringing you back to a better quality of life. An additional bonus: Snap-On Dentures do not slide around as you chew. They are fixed in place and make eating a pleasure.

Are you seeing patients?
DTI Dentures is open and continues to follow the highest level of COVID-19 safety precautions, adhering to CDC and Texas DSHS guidelines while caring for our patients.

How often should dentures be cleaned?
A stiff denture-cleaning brush and diluted dish soap solution should be used for cleaning the dentures a minimum of two times per day.  Commercially produced denture cleaning effervescent tablets may be used as an additional aid for cleaning the dentures.

Can I use toothpaste to clean my dentures?
Never use toothpaste or mouth rinse for cleaning the dentures as they may abrade or stain the dentures.
