A custom set of dentures can completely transform a smile. If you have missing teeth and are looking to get dentures, Polished Dentistry can provide you great denture services.
There are different types of dentures depending on what you need them for. Dentures can be made into a full set or a partial set and are basically removable replacement teeth. Depending on whether you need a completely full set or just a have a few missing teeth, the InPlace™ overdentures may be a good option for you.
Needs for Dentures
There are many reasons why you may want to consider dentures. Dentures can help you look younger since missing teeth can lead to a sunken or sagged looked, causing you to look older than you are. Replacing your missing teeth can also help you chew better and speak more clearly.
Types of dentures
Complete dentures replace all of the teeth in your mouth. If all of your teeth are unhealthy and need to be removed, this is the option for you.
If you just have a few teeth that need to be replaced, partials may be a good choice. With partial dentures, your healthy teeth act as strong anchors for the partial denture to connect to.
Upper dentures are replacement teeth for the upper teeth.
Conventional vs. Immediate Dentures
Convential dentures are placed after the tissue of the gums has had time to heal. Immediate dentures are placed right after removing the teeth. Immediate dentures are more expensive and require more dental visits, but they reduce swelling in the mouth. Eventually, you can replace the immediate dentures with conventional dentures.
The first obvious step is removing any teeth still in your mouth. Then our staff will make a wax bite impression, which will be a model for the dentures. You will have several appointments after the dentures are ready to make sure they fit and are exactly how you like them. You will need to properly clean your dentures, which will help keep your dentures lasting your entire lifetime. Dentures will take some getting used to and you may experience a little discomfort, but eventually they will feel like your own teeth!
