Full dentures are also called complete dentures. If you’re missing all of your teeth in an arch (upper or lower, either way), then these are the ones we’ll probably recommend to you. If your treatment plan requires tooth extractions before your dentures, we’ll be sure to have a set of temporary dentures ready to go the day your teeth are removed so you won’t have to walk out of our office with a toothless grin.
Partial dentures are used whenever you still have some teeth remaining. They are attached to the surrounding teeth and fill in any gaps. While many partial dentures use a metal frame, we offer metal-free Valplast partials which many patients find to be more comfortable and which are shown to be more durable.
What to Expect When Getting Dentures
You may have some initial concerns about how your daily life might change after getting dentures. Our team is here for you every step of the way to ensure that your treatment goes smoothly and you enjoy a stress-free transition into wearing dentures. Here are some general ideas of what you can expect with dentures:
• As your gums and jawbone change after losing teeth, it’s normal for you to require adjustments (called a reline) every now and then to ensure a proper fit.
• It may take a little practice getting used to eating and speaking with dentures, but it’s just a matter of time until it becomes second nature. Just start with soft foods and practice reading aloud from a book to get adjusted.
• You should soak your denture overnight, both to clean it and to allow your gums to rest.
• You can keep your denture clean by brushing it with a soft toothbrush and denture cleanser or toothpaste.
