Dentures Q & A
What are dentures?
Dentures are artificial teeth that replace missing permanent teeth. You might need dentures to replace some or all of your natural teeth and perfect your beautiful smile. If you have severely decayed or damaged teeth, Dr. Shouhed and his team can complete a tooth extraction prior to getting fitted for dentures.
What are the benefits of dentures?
Some of the numerous benefits associated with dentures include:
- More self-confidence
- Easier chewing
- Clearer speech
- A more aesthetically pleasing smile
- Natural-looking teeth
- Enhanced facial symmetry
If you’re unhappy with your natural teeth, or you’re missing multiple permanent teeth, getting dentures with the team at Smile Perfector Dental Group can drastically improve your quality of life.
What are the different types of dentures?
Dentures available at Smile Perfector Dental Group are metal-free. Examples include:
If you’ve been fitted for permanent dentures but haven’t yet received them, Smile Perfector Dental Group offers temporary dentures so you don’t have to go without teeth. Temporary dentures are beneficial when you’re waiting for permanent dentures, dental implants, or a dental bridge.
Removable partial dentures can replace some of your missing permanent teeth while the remaining natural teeth stay in place. Partial dentures contain a gum-colored plastic base and blend in perfectly with your natural teeth and gums. Metal-free partial dentures are comfortable, lightweight, and flexible.
Removable complete dentures replace all of your permanent teeth. Dr. Shouhed and his team might first extract severely decaying or damaged teeth. You can opt for immediate dentures right after extraction without a waiting period but must undergo adjustments after about 12 weeks when your gums and bone fully heal.
Implant-supported dentures are fixed in place by dental implants, or artificial titanium tooth roots. As with removable dentures, implant-supported dentures look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
What should I expect when getting dentures?
When you arrive at Smile Perfector Dental Group to get fitted for dentures, Dr. Shouhed examines your teeth and gums, takes impressions, and sends the information to a dental lab. In the case of implant-supported dentures, he and his team numb the treatment area and place implants into your jawbone.
When the dentures are ready, he ensures they fit properly. Keep your dentures clean by rinsing them thoroughly, soaking them in a special cleaning solution, and brushing your gums, roof of your mouth, and tongue with a toothbrush and toothpaste.
Don’t live with damaged, decaying, or missing teeth when you don’t have to. Schedule a consultation with Smile Perfector Dental Group by phone, or book online to find out if dentures are right for you.
