Are You Interested In Getting Dentures?

Both a denture and partial will help to transform your entire smile. If you’re missing your natural teeth, there is no reason for you to feel ashamed or embarrassed. Instead, we can make a personalized and customized denture to fit your needs. The denture is meant to last for many years and provide you with a natural-looking, durable smile.

The reason someone would need a denture is because they’re missing either all or most of their own teeth. You might have issues chewing, eating or talking because of the teeth you’re missing. In order to improve your smile and how it functions, we’ll recommend having a denture made. The denture is removable and should be cleaned nightly before replacing it in the morning.

Both a denture and partial are ideal for individuals who are missing teeth. They are beneficial for those who cannot have implants placed or who do not want to have a bridge made. We will examine your teeth to determine if and when a denture may be needed. We will recommend the appliance based on our own findings and the health of your current teeth.

We start the denture process by taking impressions of both your gums and teeth. We then send these impressions to a local lab where your new appliance is created for you. You will come back in after roughly two weeks so that the denture can be placed. You will need to remove the denture nightly to keep it looking its best and to clean it properly. Most dentures are able to last for about seven years or longer depending on how well they are cared for during that time and how rough you are when wearing the prosthetic.

If you think you might benefit from a denture or partial, call us today and we can get you in for a convenient consultation.

Woman Dentist Take Implant Tooth

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is specifically designed to replace a missing tooth. When a tooth falls out or is extracted, a gap is present in your smile. Over time, the underlying bone can be impacted and you may find that surrounding teeth shift out of place. Rather than wear a prosthetic appliance, a dental implant works with your body to replace that tooth.

Why would a Dental Implant be needed?

We typically recommend dental implants to patients who are missing their natural teeth. Rather than feel badly about your smile or having to resort to wearing a partial denture, an implant can be placed into the underlying jawbone. Implants are often considered permanent because they actually bond with the jawbone over the course of just a few months. You’ll love having a full, healthy smile thanks to implant technology.

What makes someone a candidate for a Dental Implant?

In order for dental implants to work for you, you need enough bone in the area where they’ll be placed. A bone grafting can be done on patients who are missing bone. The best way to determine if implants are right for your needs is with both an exam and series of x-rays. There is no age limit when it comes to who would benefit from this restoration in our office.

What can be expected during Dental Implant treatment?

First, we numb the area that will be worked on. We then make a small incision through the gums to place the titanium implant post. This is done using special tools and techniques. The implant is embedded deep into the jawbone and we’ll provide you with instructions on how to care for the area while it heals. You can expect the implant to heal in roughly six months. Once healed, we’ll make a special crown that fits over the implant’s abutment to finish off your smile.
