The right set of custom dentures can completely transform any smile into a brand new beautiful one! Depending on what you need them for, dentures can be made into a full or partial set that is basically removable replacement teeth.
Needs for Dentures
There are dozens of reasons why someone may need dentures. The most common reasons are to look younger, to help with chewing, and to speak more clearly. Many denture wearers find that they have the same functionality as the original teeth and they create a natural-looking, beautiful smile. There are many different types of dentures depending on what you may need them for. Contact Confident Smiles to see what would be a good fit for you.
Types of dentures
Complete dentures are a replacement of all the teeth in your mouth. For those with unhealthy teeth that all need to be removed, this may be the best option.
Partial Dentures are for those with only a few missing teeth. Partial dentures will connect to healthy teeth that will act as their anchors.
Upper Dentures are merely replacements for your upper teeth.
Conventional Dentures are full dentures placed after all teeth are removed. They are put in after the tissue has healed. This can take anywhere from six weeks to several months. While waiting for the tissue to heal, patients will wear a “temporary” or an immediate denture.
Immediate Dentures are placed immediately after teeth removal. They are more expansive and do require more visits to the dentist, but are extremely helpful in reducing the swelling in the mouth.
What to Expect for a Denture Procedure
The first step is the removal of teeth. From there, a wax bite impression will be made that will help in creating your perfect customized dentures. Several follow up appointments will be made to ensure your dentures fit securely and comfortably. If cleaned correctly your dentures will last a lifetime, leaving you with a beautiful and natural looking smile!
