What Are Dentures?
Dentures are custom-made dental appliances designed to resemble your teeth and gums. They are artificial teeth that sit on a gum-like acrylic base. Full and partial dentures function like natural teeth and can help you chew and speak properly. Depending on your comfort level and unique needs, they can be secured through natural suction, adhesives, or metal clasps. In addition, they can be secured using dental implant posts for a more permanent dental solution.
Our Types of Dentures
Our dental office prides itself on providing you and yours with dentures that feel comfortable and look great. Denture types can differ because of factors like how many teeth you're missing, how long you'd like your dentures to last, and the material you're most comfortable with. Our dental team will provide you with all the information you'll need so that you can make informed decisions on which dentures are right for your smile. At Associates in Family Dentistry, we partner with a local oral surgeon to provide gentle extractions to help prepare your smile for dentures.
Our office offers various denture options, including:
Complete Dentures: Complete dentures, often called full dentures, can help replace full arches of teeth in your lower or upper jaws. They include artificial teeth on a natural-looking pink acrylic base. Complete dentures use suction or adhesive material for a snug fit. You'll need to remove them before sleeping to prevent any potential discomfort.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are an excellent option for replacing portions of your smile where you have lost teeth. Our practice offers both metal and flexible partials, depending on your needs. Metal-based partial dentures are popular for their durability, whereas flexible dentures are relied on for their comfort.
Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures connect to dental implants in your jawbone for a securely supported fit. This form of denture uses six to eight implants to help restore your smile. Although our practice only offers implant-supported denture restorations, we work with a local oral surgeon for your implant placement. We can also fit new implant-supported dentures to your existing implants if needed.
Are Dentures Right for Me?
Dentures make a significant difference in countless patients' lives each year. You may need dentures if you are missing multiple teeth throughout an arch, which can cause your remaining teeth to shift out of place and make it easier for food particles and bacteria to accumulate on them. If you have gaps in your teeth, you know how it can affect everything from biting to chewing. Dentures can close natural gaps in your teeth and restore their compromised functionality. We'll work with you to determine which of our Avon dentures is right for you.
It's normal to have numerous questions about dentures. Our team is here to answer your questions and help you make informed decisions about the future of your oral health. Some frequently asked questions about our Avon dentures include:
You may initially feel discomfort when your dentures are placed for the first time. The discomfort can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days as your gums heal and adjust to your new dentures. However, it's normal for discomfort to go away over time.
Our dental team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your dentures at home. You must rinse your dentures after each meal to prevent food particles from accumulating on them. Not only that, but we also recommend regularly brushing with a denture cleaner and flossing your dentures throughout the day.
At first, it may not be easy to eat certain foods with your dentures. That's why we recommend eating soft foods immediately after getting dentures. However, over time you can eat hard and sticky foods carefully.
