If you’re embarrassed or have limited dental function because you’re missing teeth, you no longer have to suffer shame and discomfort from missing teeth. It’s easier than ever to completely restore your smile, comfort, and confidence with dentures. These are tailored dental appliances comprised of replacement teeth, on a removable dental framework or a secure, permanent implant. Their long-lasting nature with proper care makes them a smart investment in your oral health.
Advances in dentistry have led to a wide variety of dentures today. Once our dentist performs a full dental exam, they can recommend the best denture for your needs. Discover the most common denture options below.
You should choose a full denture to replace all of your existing teeth in your lower or top jaw. You can get either a full fixed denture that is secured in your mouth with dental implants or you can opt for a removable full denture that gently rests on top of your gums. With a full denture, all remaining teeth would be removed and you would be provided with a set of temporary dentures to wear until your gums have a chance to heal. As soon as you’ve finished healing, our dentist would fir your newly-created permanent denture.
And you would select a partial denture if you were only looking to replace a few lost teeth in your mouth and keep your remaining healthy teeth. A partial denture
is built on a structure that resembles a bridge, but it’s different from a bridge that gets permanently secured in your mouth because it is simply attached with clasps that cover the teeth on both of its sides. Every night, the bridge must be removed for cleansing.
These dentures are made of a weightless, supple material that easily conforms to your mouth instead of the hard base and metal clasps used in a traditional denture. Its flexible clasps and base provide added comfort, while its gum-colored composition mean that no one will ever suspect that you’re wearing a denture.
If you’re looking for a denture with the a lot of stability and strength, then this may be the right denture for you. An implant-supported denture simply uses two or four dental implants to firmly hold in the mouth. They are typically recommended to replace the lower teeth because these demand more security than the a denture for the upper teeth. But realize that these still need to be taken out and cleaned every night.
You may be pleasantly surprised to learn how easy it is to get dentures. While the exact procedure is based on the kind selected and health of your mouth, it usually begins by our dentist measuring your mouth and taking an impression of your teeth that is used to create your final denture. Then, teeth that aren’t healthy are gently extracted and a temporary denture is provided until the final denture is manufactured. Once it’s ready, you return to the dentist for placement and adjustments are made to ensure your comfort and function.
