Dentures
 

Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth are removable. Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed from the mouth and replaced with a full set of dentures. There are two types of full dentures.

  • Conventional Full Dentures - This is when all the teeth are removed and the tissue is given time to heal before the dentures are placed. It could take a few months for the gum tissue to heal completely, and during this time you will be without teeth.
  • Immediate Full Dentures - This when the dentures are made before teeth are removed. Prior to having your teeth removed, the dentist takes measurements and records.  After removing the teeth, the dentures are immediately placed in your mouth. The benefit is that you do not have to spend any time without teeth. You will, however, need to have follow up visits to refit your dentures because the jaw bone will slightly change shape as your mouth heels. The dentures will need to be adjusted once healing takess place..
Partial dentures are another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. There are many choices for what type of removable partial denture is best for you.
.

Even though dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them like they are. You should brush them to remove plaque and food particles before removing your dentures. After they have been removed you should place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. You should always remove and clean your dentures before bedtime and never sleep with them in.
