Dentures are a removable prosthetic device used to replace your teeth.
They are used in cases of partial or full mouth tooth loss, depending on your condition and treatment needs. Dentures have been an affordable and reliable tooth loss solution for decades. However, dentures are no longer just for older patients. Recent advancements in dental materials and technology make dentures an excellent tooth loss solution for younger patients, as well.
Dentures are made from high-quality acrylic resin. They consist of two parts: a gum-colored base and a set of natural-looking prosthetic teeth. Dentures are custom-made to fit comfortably over your gums and alveolar ridges (the bones on the top and bottom jaws). Once placed in your mouth, your dentures fully restore the function and appearance of your natural smile.
Your dentures need special care to keep them clean, fresh, and free from stains. Here are some steps to ensure good denture care:
You know that full or partial tooth loss affects your appearance and self-esteem. However, did you know it can have lasting effects on your overall health? If left untreated, tooth loss can eventually increase your risk of developing nutritional problems, intestinal disorders, and other health concerns.
A complete set of fully functioning teeth is important to properly chew your food and process the nutrients your body needs.
Dentures have aesthetic benefits as well. By wearing properly fitted dentures, you can maintain your natural appearance. Tooth loss can cause your lips and cheek to lose support, leading to sagging. This can eventually lead to an increase of wrinkles and make you look older.
By wearing dentures, you give your facial muscles the support they need and maintain the normal look of your face.
When you first get your new dentures, it will take several weeks for your mouth to fully adjust to them. You may experience gum irritation, discomfort, or the sensation that your dentures are too big or bulky. Over time, you will adjust and your dentures will feel comfortable and natural in your mouth. Be sure to call our office if you experience any prolonged discomfort, irritation, or poor stability. Properly fitted dentures are the key to improved comfort and function.
If you’re looking for a stable tooth loss solution, you may be the perfect candidate for implant-supported dentures. This type of denture uses a series of dental implants to anchor an overdenture to your jawbone, requiring a simple surgical procedure.
Unlike traditional removable dentures, implant-supported dentures help restore the bone tissue loss that occurs after tooth loss. Implants are made from biocompatible titanium and fuse to your jawbone, stimulating tissue growth and preserving the shape of your jawline.
