Dentures have been a common option for tooth replacement for centuries and are still used today. Dentures might be the best option for you if you are missing most or all of your natural teeth. Replacement teeth are fused to a plastic base to form dentures. The base fits over the gums and is colored to resemble real gums. Dentures can be taken out for cleaning or while you sleep. Complete and partial dentures are the two primary varieties of dentures. When every natural tooth is lost, complete dentures are used. When some natural teeth are still present, partial dentures are used. If you’re thinking about getting dentures, consult your dentist to determine if they’re the best option for you.
The function and appearance of your mouth can be greatly enhanced with dentures. By shielding your teeth from damage, they can make eating more comfortable for you. They can also make speaking more clear. Dentures can completely transform the appearance of your mouth. Our staff at Texas Sedation Dental & Implant Center can assist you in deciding if dentures are the best option for you. To find the ideal denture solution for your requirements and price range, we will work with you. Call us right away to arrange a consultation.
If all of the teeth in the jaw have fallen out, a full denture is usually the best option. The lower jaw, upper jaw, or both jaws may be restored with a full denture. A full denture appliance can provide a brand-new set of teeth for many people who have lost all of their teeth. Some people decide to have all of their remaining teeth extracted in favor of full dentures when their existing teeth have grown to be too problematic to keep. Your mouth and gums are precisely molded to fit your full dentures. They restore your smile and are designed to look natural. Full dentures should be removed at night so that your gums can rest. They are removable. Additionally, you’ll have to take them out for routine cleaning. Your full dentures will last longer if you take good care of them.
Dentures are frequently misunderstood as being only for those who have lost all of their teeth. A partial denture, on the other hand, is an alternative that people who still have some natural teeth may want to consider. The gaps in your teeth are filled by removable partial dentures that are fastened to nearby, healthy teeth. They might make use of precision attachments, which are clasps or connectors. With replacement teeth attached to a base that matches your gums in color, they are designed to look just like your natural teeth. For those who want to improve their smile but don’t want the hassle of full dentures, partial dentures can be a good option. Ask your dentist if a partial denture might be a good option for you if you believe it might be.
Despite our best efforts, it occasionally becomes necessary to remove teeth. Your gums will need some time to recover after this occurs before you can get permanent dentures. Dr. Kendall can give you a denture right away in the interim. Immediate dentures are intended to be a short-term fix but may be worn permanently in certain circumstances. To fit comfortably, they might need to be adjusted frequently because after teeth are removed, the tissues in your jaw shrink and change shape. Immediate dentures can be relined with a permanent liner and converted to final dentures after six months. So, if you must have teeth extracted, don’t worry; you will still have a stunning smile in no time!
Dr. Kendall will spend time going over all the crucial information regarding denture care before you leave our office with your new set of dentures. He will go over proper denture removal and cleaning techniques. Additionally, he will advise you on the best type and frequency of denture adhesive use. He will also tell you where to go if you need to get your dentures relined or fixed. We hope to ensure that you can enjoy your new smile for many years to come by taking the time to educate you on how to properly care for your dentures.
