What are Dentures and Partials?
Complete and partial dentures are meant to replace teeth that you’re already missing. Partials are meant for patients who still have a lot of their natural teeth while full dentures are ideal for individuals who are missing a complete arch of their teeth. Both prosthetic appliances are easy to wear and are made to fit your mouth perfectly. You can experience the benefits of better oral functioning and a brighter, fuller smile.
Why would Dentures and Partials be needed?
You may need a prosthetic appliance if you’re missing a lot of your teeth. In some cases, extractions may be needed to remove loose or severely decayed teeth before a denture can be made for you. These dentures are made to not only fill in your smile and cheeks, but to help in improving functionality so that you can finally enjoy your favorite foods with ease. They can last for many years with proper care and can be easily replaced when needed.
Who’s a candidate for Dentures and Partials?
We can perform an examination to determine if you’d benefit from either a full or partial denture. The majority of patients who need either of these prosthetic appliances can safely and easily have one made specifically for their mouth. The procedure often requires several visits to ensure the denture fits and feels as comfortable as possible. If you have severely decayed or loose teeth, we may suggest having them extracted before placing a denture.
What occurs when having Dentures and Partials made?
You will come into our office for impressions. These impressions are essential in creating a prosthesis that fits your mouth perfectly. You will then come back into the office for a second appointment and to have the denture fitted. We’ll need to make small adjustments to improve the fit and feel of the appliance. You may need to come in for one or to subsequent visits if more adjustments are needed. It is important that you remove your denture each night to properly clean it and remove plaque and odors.
