As you can probably guess, the first step to getting dentures is to pay your dentist a visit and figure out whether they’re really the solution you need. We’ll discuss all of the options that can re-complete your smile and help you narrow down which one you should pursue. When it comes to dentures, the best candidates are normally those who have already experienced extensive tooth loss and currently have healthy gums as well as a strong jawbone.
What kind of denture are you thinking of getting? Do you simply have a few missing teeth that a partial denture could replace? Do you need a full denture to restore your upper or lower arch? Or were you thinking you could get dentures supported by dental implants? It’s important to know the differences between the different types of dentures so that you can narrow down the kind that’s right for you.
Partial dentures come with clasps to keep them attached to their mouth. We can personalize your partial denture based on the specific teeth you’ve lost in order to fill in multiple gaps at once.
Full dentures normally use natural suction to stay in place on the gums, although denture adhesive can sometimes be used to give them a bit more stability. A full denture is often necessary when an entire row of teeth has been lost.
At least four dental implants are typically needed to support a full denture. There are several advantages to getting implant dentures, such as not having to worry about unwanted movement. Also, if you get a fixed implant denture, you can brush it the same way you would your real teeth.
Once you get your new dentures, you’ll notice several positive changes in your life. You’ll have an easier time chewing again, and you’ll likely feel more confident about your appearance overall. And when it comes to longevity, you can often expect dentures to last around a decade.
