What are dentures?
Dentures are oral appliances designed to replace missing teeth. They come with artificial teeth held in a flesh-colored base which sits over the gums. Today’s dentures look incredibly natural and are more comfortable than ever! There are two types of dentures: Complete and partial. Complete dentures replace all your teeth, while partial dentures are used when one or more of your teeth remain.
Complete dentures can be conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are made after removing any remaining teeth, and the tissue heals. Immediate dentures, on the other hand, are prepared in advance and positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. However, the bones and gums shrink during the healing period, so your dentures will need adjusting and relining to ensure a proper fit.
Partials come with replacement teeth that sit on metal frameworks which connect to your natural teeth. These restorations offer a removable alternative to dental bridges.
Why choose dentures?
Getting dentures will restore your youthful appearance and will allow you to speak and chew with confidence. If any of your natural teeth remain, partials protect them from wear and from drifting out of place. The cost of dentures is more affordable than any other tooth replacement option.
Life with dentures
Your dentures will require patience during a brief adjustment period. Make sure to see us if there are any sore spots so we can adjust them. Never attempt denture repair to avoid damaging your restorations.
Well-fitting dentures will not require denture adhesives to keep them in place but can be used if you’d like some added sense of security. Make sure to clean your dentures daily and remove them when you go to bed to give your gums a break.
