What are Dentures?
Dentures consist of artificial teeth that sit on a pink acrylic base. They're popular for their natural appearance and can be secured with suction, adhesive, or metal clasps. Missing teeth not only impact your self-confidence but can negatively impact your oral health by shifting your remaining teeth. With dentures, you can eliminate many of the problems caused by missing teeth, allowing you to speak, chew, and smile with confidence.
Our High-Quality Denture Options
We're pleased to offer two primary forms of dentures to meet your unique dental needs. We'll determine how many teeth you have missing during your initial visit and which of our restorative options fits your smile best. Our denture offerings include:
Full Dentures: Full or complete dentures are intended to replace all the teeth in your smile. Complete dentures can replace either one entire arch or both arches for your upper and lower jaws. They consist of either porcelain or ceramic teeth placed into a pink acrylic base to mimic your smile's natural appearance and feel.
Partial Dentures: If you still have remaining teeth, partial dentures may be the perfect option for you. They're made of porcelain or ceramic teeth and a body-safe acrylic base like complete dentures. However, they aren't meant to replace every tooth and can comfortably fit next to your remaining teeth for a seamless appearance and a fully restored bite.
Pretreatments for Dentures
During your initial visit, our dentist may determine that you require pretreatment before safely receiving your dentures. Luckily, our practice is proud to offer high-quality pretreatment options to help you get the care you need without referring you out. Our dentist encourages you to ask questions about our options and is happy to break down what each treatment entails. Our pretreatments include:
Extractions: At Hardwood Forest Dentistry, our goal is to preserve as much of your natural teeth as possible. However, it may be necessary to extract severely decayed or damaged teeth so that you can get full or partial dentures. We'll take a gentle approach to extract your teeth and ensure that the area heals without complications.
Gum Disease Treatment: If you're dealing with gum disease, our practice has the capabilities to provide effective treatment in the comfort of our own office. Gum disease doesn't just prevent you from receiving your dentures but can lead to severe health complications like bone deterioration and tooth loss. Some of the ways we can treat gum disease include scaling and root planing.
It's normal to have questions about dentures. Our staff is here to answer your questions and provide you with the information you need to make educated decisions about your oral health. Some frequently asked questions about dentures include:
Immediately following the placement of your dentures, we strongly encourage you to eat soft foods. We recommend you continue with this dietary restriction until you feel comfortable eating with your dentures. From there, you can eat just about anything.
It would be best if you cleaned your dentures after each meal. However, you should remove your dentures and rinse them in cool water. We recommend that you soak your dentures and even use a denture cleaner at night. Note that it's crucial that you not let your dentures dry as it can warp their form and prevent them from fitting comfortably in your mouth.
Pronouncing certain words may take practice once you've received your dentures. It's also normal for your dentures to occasionally move when you laugh, cough, or smile. If you experience a severe impact on your speech, contact us, and we'll carefully look over them to see if adjustments should be made.
