Follow up care is scheduled in the same way as your regular dental cleanings to ensure the fit, feel and function of your dentures is optimized as much as possible.
A denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. Dentures can be retained with dental implants which adds a high degree of stability that is evident when you bite down on such foods as fruits, meat and vegetables. In fact, securing dentures with dental implants is a top choice among patients today and it’s offered at our dental office.
There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A Partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth; it prevents other teeth from shifting but it does not prevent bone loss.
A Complete denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4 to 6 weeks. During this time you will have to go without teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.
Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear and tear.
Reasons for a denture:
- Complete Denture – Loss of all teeth in an arch.
- Partial Denture – Loss of several teeth in an arch.
- Enhancing smile and facial tissues.
- Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.
You will be given care instructions for your new dentures. Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new dentures.
