Specialty Denture Options Adapted for Your Needs
Conventional Full Dentures
- All the teeth are removed and the tissue is given time to heal before the dentures are placed. It could take a few months for the gum tissue to heal completely, and during this time you will be without teeth.
Immediate Full Dentures
- Prior to having your teeth removed, your dentist takes measurements to have the dentures fitted in your mouth. After removing the teeth, the dentures are immediately placed in your mouth. The benefit is that you do not have to spend any time without teeth. You will, however, need to have a follow-up visit to refit your dentures because the jaw bone will slightly change shape as your mouth heals. The dentures will need to be relined after the jaw bone has healed.
Partial Dentures - Another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. This is similar to a removable bridge, and is not a permanent fixture in your mouth.
Proper Care Tips for Your Top-Notch Dentures
Your dentures may take some time to get used to. Some people say that the flesh-colored base of the dentures placed over your gums feels bulky or that they don't have enough room for their tongue.
Other times the dentures might feel loose. These feelings will affect the way you eat and talk for a little while. Over time, your mouth becomes trained to eat and speak with your dentures and they begin to feel more and more like your natural teeth. They may never feel perfectly comfortable, but it is much better than the alternative of not having teeth.
Even though dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them like they are:
Brush them to remove plaque and food particles before removing your dentures
Place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution
Never use hot water because it could warp the dentures
Make sure you are careful when handling them so you don't drop them
Never try to adjust your dentures yourself
Always seek assistance from your dentist if you feel the dentures are uncomfortable or loose
for all your dental needs.
