Dentures

 Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. Depending on each individual patient case, they may receive full or partial dentures. 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 major breakthroughs in the way dentures are fabricated and held in place.  They are "game changers" in the old and conventional way dentures are made.  The first are digital dentures fabricated by Avadent.  These dentures are made using CAD/CAM technology for a more precise fit.  The second is dental implants to hold dentures in place.   Both of these breakthroughs greatly increase the comfort and appearance for patients needing dentures.

Partial dentures are another option people missing some, but not all, of their teeth. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth.

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. Never use hot water because it could warp the dentures. Your dentures are delicate, so make sure you are careful when handling them so you don't drop them. Also, never try to adjust your dentures yourself. You could ruin them, so you should always seek assistance from your dentist if they feel uncomfortable or loose.
