Denture Care

 

FULL & PARTIAL DENTURES

 

If you suffer from dental disease, malnutrition, or genetic disorders, you may need your teeth extracted by a professional. Losing your permanent teeth may seem devastating but dentures provide a second chance at a wonderful smile! Even moreso, implant supported dentures are made to look, feel, and act like natural teeth and are the closest thing you can get to natural, healthy teeth.

 

Your facial structure and speech will improve once you are suited with implant supported dentures, and chewing food will become easy once again. This option will give you a full set of pseudo-teeth that are natural-looking and match your facial structure.

 

It’s possible you may not need a full set of dentures. Partial dentures can replace any amount of missing teeth necessary and fasten to your remaining teeth using clasps. Dentures have come a long way, as today’s dentures are natural-looking and comfortable. We offer many other solutions to your dental problems with partial dentures and mini dental implants.

 

We will customize your dentures to fit your unique bone structure and facial shape, that look and feel great! Once a full set of teeth is removed, the process for the gums to heal and the bone to realign will take up to 6 months. Having a full set of immediate dentures during this time would be an excellent option.

 

FULL DENTURES:

An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. The dentist takes measurements and makes models of the patients jaws during a preliminary visit. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. Even if you wear full dentures, you still must take good care of your mouth. Brush your gums, tongue, and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.

 

And even if you wear full dentures, it’s important to visit your dentist regularly to maintain your overall oral health and get early warning of serious issues such as oral cancer. Implant supported dentures will be achored to the jaw bone and remain tight and fit properly for a very long time.

 

PARTIAL DENTURES:

Partial dentures, or implant supported bridges are used when some natural teeth still remain. Partial dentures can be very stable, especially when supported by natural teeth on either side. 

 

An implant-supported bridge has several advantages. Using implants to secure the bridge means that no healthy teeth need to be ground down in order to replace a missing tooth; whereas traditional bridges rely on adjacent teeth for support. These nominally healthy teeth need to be reshaped before the bridge is secured in place using dental cement.

 

Missing teeth can speed up bone loss and put the health of your gums and remaining teeth at risk. In order to prevent these issues from occurring, it is important to replace missing teeth quickly. Partial dentures are an excellent and cost effective solution if you need to replace multiple missing teeth. At your initial consultation, your dentist will let you know whether partial dentures can be an effective tooth replacement option for you.
