annual Recall  

Receive the care and attention you and your dentures deserve 

It is critical to maintain your dentures to ensure maximum comfort, chewing efficiency and appearance. 

Why is an Annual Recall Appointment Important?

To ensure you are getting maximum comfort, chewing efficiency and appearance from your dentures you should participate in the annual checkup offered by Battell Denture Clinic. At this appointment we have the opportunity to assess the integrity of your dentures, identify problems and possibly save you money and trouble in the future.

Oral Tissue and Jaw Bone

Over time, your mouth undergoes inevitable changes. Shrinkage (atrophy) of the underlying jaw bone on which your dentures rest is inevitable. The soft gum tissue that covers the jaw bone will also change over time. Your denture’s fitting surfaces do not change over time and your dentures may not fit as they once did.

Oral Cavity

Having an annual oral exam may help prevent or detect the existence of oral cancer or other abnormal conditions.

Medical and Dental History

Updating both your medical and dental history is an important for us to continue to provide you quality treatment, as changes may directly affect the fit of your dentures.

What to expect during your annual visit
