Often when a patient has missing teeth, their bite can be heavily affected. Sometimes even the simplest of tasks like chewing or eating can become extremely difficult and uncomfortable due to missing teeth. Dentures provide a fantastic solution for a natural and healthy looking smile, increasing your self-confidence. Dentures are also easily cleaned and cared for. Have a question? Give us a call and we’ll discuss your options.
Dentures come in many shapes and sizes, each designed uniquely to meet the needs of each particular patient. In scenarios where all or most teeth are missing, full or complete sets may be recommended, while partial dentures work for patients who are missing a few teeth.
Our dentist will begin by removing any necessary teeth that are unable to be restored and then will make a mold of the area which is to be sent to the laboratory. The lab will use the impression of your teeth to create your unique set of dentures.
Some patients report slight discomfort in the first few days of receiving new dentures. Some slight swelling may occur as well as discomfort, but this is normal. The surrounding gum tissue must get used to the dentures and the soreness will subside. Your dentist will adjust the denture to reduce discomfort and swelling. You may also need to eat soft food for the first few days to adjust to the denture. Also, practicing speaking will help to get you accustomed to wearing the denture.
With proper care and cleaning, your dentures can last a long time. They should be cleaned every day with specialized denture cleaning toothpaste and by soaking in a cleaning solution. Dentures should be left in water overnight when not in use to prevent warping.
