Dentures are used when a person is missing all or most of their natural teeth, possibly due to an injury or declining oral health. They provide a great way to regain the benefits of healthy, natural teeth, enabling natural and pain-free chewing. Dentures consist of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base and can be secured with or without dental implants.

  • How do I clean dentures?

    Here are the steps for cleaning traditional removable dentures:

    1. 1. After eating, remove and rinse the dentures to remove food debris and loose particles.
    2. Handle the dentures carefully and avoid bending or damaging them when cleaning.
    3. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your mouth after removing the dentures.
    4. Brush the dentures once a day and soak them in a nonabrasive denture cleanser to remove food, plaque, and other deposits.
    5. Soak the dentures overnight in a mild denture-soaking solution to keep them moist and maintain their shape.
    6. Schedule regular dental checkups to ensure proper fit, prevent slippage and discomfort, and maintain oral health.
    7. Avoid using abrasive cleaning materials, whitening toothpastes, bleach-containing products, or hot/boiling water, as these could damage the dentures.
  • What are full dentures?

    Sometimes dental conditions, such as tooth decay or gum disease, can become unmanageable, which may lead to the decision to remove your remaining teeth from one or both jaws. Complete dentures are an economical and efficient way to restore your function and smile regardless of the case.

    A complete denture consists of a thin acrylic base that rests on the gum tissue and is the same color as your gums. Porcelain or acrylic replacement teeth built into the base appear as natural teeth emerging from the gums. Our experienced staff can help you select replacement teeth that appear most natural and harmonious in your smile, allowing you to customize your look, whether you want a “new” smile or want to restore the one you had.

    While dentures have a long history of successful use, modern technology offers better options to enhance the way they fit and the way you look. Dentures can be secured more firmly to your jaw with dental implants placed in the jaw and connected under the denture’s base. This connection can be designed to create permanent fixation of the denture or to allow for its removal at times. In addition to having greater retention and a more natural look, implant-supported dentures tend to last longer. Your dentist can discuss these options and help you understand how they can improve your dental experience.

  • What are partial dentures?

    Partial dentures are an affordable solution to replace missing teeth and fill in the gaps, making chewing and smiling easier. They can help prevent natural teeth from shifting and reduce the risk of losing them in the future. Most partial dentures have a thin metal framework that rests close to the gums, providing a comfortable and secure fit. Natural teeth support the framework, and where teeth are missing, realistic replacements are attached to the frame. Gum-colored acrylic is used to blend the appliance with your mouth.

    Advances in technology now allow for implants to support removable partial dentures, improving the fit and reducing their size. However, dentures can still pose some challenges, especially for new wearers. The goal is to minimize these everyday frustrations as much as possible.

    We are eager to discuss your options and help restore your smile with a comfortable and esthetic solution.
