Dentures Can Provide Natural-Looking Artificial Teeth
Whether it is because of aging, tooth decay, or an accident, some people find themselves missing multiple teeth. Dentures can provide natural-looking artificial teeth to replace the ones that are now missing. People who suffer from missing teeth and have trouble eating and speaking normally may find that dentures can help them. Thomas S. Vince, DMD can provide a customized set of replacement teeth for each patient’s needs. Our office can also provide continued maintenance to the dentures to help keep them functioning properly. Here is a definition of full and partial dentures:
FULL SET DENTURES
When all of your teeth are missing, complete dentures can replace them. If you have multiple dental issues, our staff may decide to remove the rest of your teeth. Your Gums will usually heal within eight to twelve weeks. After your gums have healed, we will construct your dentures. By waiting for up to 12 weeks, you can be sure that your set of complete dentures will fit securely. You can use temporary dentures until you heal but will not have the best fit.
If only a few of your teeth are missing, partial dentures are a good solution for replacing them. Unlike full set dentures, a plastic base that is the same color as your gums holds the partial dentures. A metal framework is typically created in order to secure the base and prevent it from falling out.
Care is Important for Denture Longevity in Greensburg, PA, and Beyond
Every night you should rinse the dentures thoroughly, brush them and let them soak overnight at your Greensburg, PA, home. You also need to brush your gums, tongue, and the roof of your mouth with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste. Then use an antiseptic mouthwash to help kill any lingering bacteria.
