What are Dentures?
Dentures are a type of prosthetic device used to replace missing teeth, providing structure, stability, and improved appearance. They are custom made to fit each individual’s mouth, and can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full set of teeth. The type of dentures that are right for you will depend on the number of teeth missing, the position of the remaining teeth, and the shape of your jaw.
Types of Dentures
There are two types of dentures available: complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete, or full, dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Both types of dentures are designed to fit the your mouth comfortably and securely, and provide a natural-looking, aesthetically pleasing result.
The process of receiving dentures typically begins with a consultation with one of our dentists, during which we will take impressions of your teeth and gums and discuss the options available to you. Once the impressions have been made, our team will work with a dental laboratory to create custom dentures that fit your mouth perfectly. The dentures will be fitted to your mouth and adjusted for maximum comfort. After the dentures are fitted, we will provide you with instructions on how to care for them, as well as any other instructions or tips that may be helpful.
Caring for Your Dentures
It is important to care for your dentures properly and keep them clean in order to prevent discoloration or staining. We recommend that you brush your dentures daily with a mild, non-abrasive cleanser and rinse them after eating. You should also avoid using harsh abrasives when brushing your dentures, as this can damage them. To prevent the growth of bacteria and plaque on your dentures, you should soak them daily in a solution that is specifically designed for dentures.
