Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance or replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth. Dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing. A denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional denture is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has been healed which usually takes 4 to 6 weeks. During this time period the patient will not be having teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the tooth is removed, which prevents the patient from not having tooth during the healing process. Once the tissues are heal, adjustments are made.

Procedure

  • The procedure of getting dentures requires several seatings. Highly accurate molds and measurements are taken and used to create custom denture. Several trials may be required to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final seating, dentist will precisely adjust and fit the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.
  • In this procedure the patient will experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulty, and this will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to new dentures.

  • You will be given care instructions. Proper cleaning instructions for your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid your new dentures.
