What Is the Average Lifespan of Dentures?

Typically, dentures can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years. However, this may vary depending on the health of your gums and mouth, as well as how well you care for them. Drs. Gary and Ashley McDowell of McDowell Dental Group can educate you on the best way to maintain your dentures over time to keep them functioning as long as possible!

With proper care and maintenance, you can extend the longevity of your dentures.
