ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR DENTURES?
Typically anyone who is missing most or all of their teeth is a good candidate for traditional full arch dentures at our practice. When tooth loss is sporadic and you have a substantial amount of healthy remaining teeth, partial dentures may be better suited. If you are looking for a more durable solution to replacing your missing teeth, we also offer implant-supported dentures. Since this option requires dental implant surgery, patients must have healthy gums and adequate jawbone strength to qualify. We will perform a thorough evaluation of your gums, jawbone, and remaining teeth to determine your candidacy for the appropriate type of denture. If gum disease or tooth decay is present, those will need to be addressed before proceeding with dentures.
Traditional dentures are made with a gum-colored base and artificial teeth devised to match your natural tooth enamel for realistic results. Your prosthetic device will be customized to fit securely and comfortably over your gums. Dentures rely on suction and a dental adhesive to hold them in place. Traditional dentures should be removed nightly for cleaning and to allow your gums to rest while you sleep.
When designing your denture, we will take a series of x-rays and impressions to create a 3D model of your smile. This model will be sent to a dental lab where technicians will manufacture your customized denture. The fabrication process typically takes two to three weeks. During your follow-up visit, we will check that your denture fits and demonstrate how to remove and care for the restoration at home.
