Dentures are a prosthetic replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. Depending on each individual patient case, they may receive full or partial dentures.
Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed from the mouth. We will take impressions and fabricate full dentures to replace your missing teeth. We work together with our lab to achieve a beautiful esthetic finish to give the patient back the beautiful smile they used to have.
Partial dentures are another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. They are similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth. It can be removed at the patient's convenience. We offer a flexible partial denture, which is very retentive and comfortable for our patients.
Even though dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them like they are. You should brush them to remove plaque and food particles. After they have been removed you should place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. Never use hot water because it could warp the dentures. Your dentures are delicate, so make sure you are careful when handling them so you don't drop them. Also, never try to adjust your dentures yourself. You could ruin them, so you should always seek assistance from your dentist if they feel uncomfortable or loose.
