Why Partial & Full Dentures?
Life and daily activities can become problematic if you start losing your teeth. From difficulty, while eating, speaking, and smiling, loss of teeth can also result in loss of confidence. Missing teeth negatively impact other teeth and your overall face and mouth structure – including the cheeks and lips. Dentures can help restore your mouth to full functionality and improve your quality of life.
What is the difference between partial and full dentures?
There are two types of dentures – a complete full set and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain
What to Expect
Dentures are a removable dental appliance that helps replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. It is made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. There are two types of dentures – complete and partial.
Why Do People Get Dentures?
There are many reasons that people get dentures.
- Complete Denture - Loss of all teeth in an arch
- Partial Denture - Loss of several teeth in an arch
- Enhancing your smile and overall appearance
- Improve chewing, speech, and digestion
To prepare for your dentures, be sure to talk with your dentist.
During TreatmentThe process of getting dentures requires several appointments, usually over several weeks to fully allow the healing process. Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture. Several “try-in” appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final appointment, your denture dentist will precisely adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.
It is normal to experience increased saliva flow, soreness, and possible speech and chewing challenges after the procedure. This will subside as your mouth and muscles get used to the new dentures.
You will be given care instructions for your new set of dentures. Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your dentures.
Your First Visit
During your first visit, the dentist will evaluate your teeth to see what type of dentures you will need. There are two types of dentures that you can make: “conventional” or “immediate.” No matter which type you get, you will have impressions made of your mouth and gums. After this, you will have several more appointments to ensure that your dentures fit correctly and are the right shape for your mouth.
