What Are Dentures?
Dentures are prosthetic devices that mimic the appearance of natural teeth and gums.
They’re a popular method of teeth replacement for a few different reasons:
- They allow you to eat and talk normally
- They are durable and long-lasting
- They restore the look of your natural teeth
- They’re easy to clean and maintain
There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures can replace an entire arch of missing teeth, while partial dentures can fill in the gaps left by just a few missing teeth. Sometimes it’s better to extract the remaining teeth and opt for a full set of dentures, depending on your oral health. Our dentists will walk you through your options.
The Denture Process
Dentures require several appointments to complete. During the first few appointments, we’ll take impressions of your mouth so a mold can be created. This oral appliance custom-made to fit your mouth, so it’s important to have the correct measurements. Once your dentures have been made, you can return to our office to try them on. We can make adjustments if needed.
How to Care For Your Dentures
It’s important to care for your false teeth if you want them to last. Dentures should be cleaned regularly to prevent the buildup of bacteria that can cause bad breath. To do this, you can brush your oral appliance like you would your natural teeth and soak them overnight so they don’t dry out. You should also continue to brush your gums to avoid gum disease.
