FULL & PARTIAL DENTURES
There are various kinds of dentures available, but all dentures share a common goal: to replace teeth. Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth.
Complete dentures are a cost-effective, simple replacement option for patients who are missing all of their top and/or bottom teeth. These dentures are designed to fit over your gums, as the patient no longer has any teeth.
Partial dentures are a way to replace one or more missing teeth and
restore your natural smile. Remaining teeth can act as anchors to help
stabilize partial dentures. Therefore, some of the patient’s existing
teeth may need to be prepared in order for a partial denture to fit properly.
In some cases, teeth may need to be extracted and your mouth given a chance to heal before a new, permanent denture can be fabricated. Immediate dentures are for perfect for patients that would like a set of dentures as an interim during the healing process. Immediate dentures can be partial or complete and can be inserted immediately after dental extractions.
Immediate dentures normally require adjustments as the healing process takes place, so achieving optimal comfort and fit normally takes several appointments.
After you receive your dentures, our doctors will instruct you on how to properly clean them in order to remove bacteria and buildup. Make sure to handle your dentures carefully and store them in a denture case whenever they are not being used. It is important to clean your mouth daily, brush your denture daily, and to soak your denture overnight with a denture cleaning solution.
Even with dentures, regular dental check ups with us are still necessary to have your dentures examined and professionally cleaned. Our doctors also perform oral cancer screenings during your regular checkups to make sure you are in good health.
