Dentures

Living with missing teeth means facing a lot of problems. Apart from affecting your physical appearance, missing teeth also create difficulty speaking and eating food. Dentures are a popular treatment procedure to help you restore your missing teeth. 

 

What are Dentures?  

Dentures or false teeth are synthetic replacements for your missing teeth. The factors such as gum disease, tooth decay, facial injuries, and others lead to the loss of teeth. Depending upon how many teeth are extracted, our dentist in Downey Dental Solutions will recommend dentures as a treatment option. Using dentures is necessary because missing teeth also cause sagging of facial muscles.  

 

What are the Types of Dentures? 

You can book an appointment at our dental clinic in Downey city of California, for the procedure. After examining your case, our dentist will decide which type of dentures are best suited for you. 

 

Full Dentures

Full dentures or complete dentures are used for patients who have got all their teeth extracted from their jaw. 

 

Partial Removable Dentures 

Partial removable dentures are used for patients with only a few missing teeth. They are a removable option and can be removed during sleeping and cleaning the mouth. 

 

Partial Fixed Dentures 

You can also visit our dental clinic in Pembroke Pines, FL, 33024, to opt for partial fixed dentures. They are a non-removable option. 

 

Implant Retained Dentures 

Our dentist in Pembroke Pines, FL, 33024, recommends these dentures to all the patients who require added retention because of bone loss. These dentures provide an anchor for the teeth to connect when they are inserted into the mouth. You must remove them for cleaning. 

 

Same-Day Dentures 

Same-day or immediate dentures are for patients who want to get their teeth extracted and dentures installed on the same day. 

 

How are Dentures Made? 

Our dentist will take the impressions of your mouth and send them to the dental lab to make your dentures. A plaster model is created using such an impression. It is placed on a mechanical device known as an articulator to allow the technician to attach the teeth properly with wax. The technician will place artificial teeth in the denture to shape and carve the wax to create a gum-like tissue. 

 

After placing the denture in a flask, they will put more plaster to maintain its shape. The leftover wax will be rinsed away, and they will inject acrylic into the flask to replace it. A liquid separator will be applied to ensure that the acrylic doesn’t stick. The mould will be taken off, and the technician will trim and polish it. They will be sent back to us. Any further adjustments will be made after fitting.

 

Implant Dentures

If you are looking to replace the missing teeth in your mouth, implant-supported dentures are the most effective alternatives. These devices offer patients all the benefits that come with implant dentistry and the convenience of dentures. Downey Dental Solutions offers a customized system of implants any patient could afford.

 

Dentures are the most cost-effective technique for replacing missing teeth. Traditional dentures have their drawbacks, including: 

 

  • The prosthesis would get displaced inside the mouth.

  • It can cause mouth sores.

  • It is often used in conjunction with dental adhesives.

  • The patient may experience challenges while eating and talking.

  • There is always the chance of the prosthesis slipping out.

  • They must be removed at night, cleaned, and then soaked in a denture solution for the night.

We offer a fantastic alternative for those looking for a low-cost option to improve their ability to smile and chew. Implant-supported dentures offer many advantages such as:

  • Don't need to be adjusted.

Process for Placing Implant-Supported Dentures

Before the procedure, our dental professionals at Downey Dental  Solutions in Downey, CA, 90240, will ensure whether the patient has sufficient healthy jawbone tissue to undergo the procedure. Your first appointment will consist of an initial diagnosis to discuss the process and understand what care will be required when tailored to your needs.

 

When putting in the dentures, the oral surgeon at Downey Dental  Solutions will surgically insert titanium implants into your jawbone. The implants will then be given time to fuse with the tissue of the jawbone. It usually takes about three and six months. The procedure is easy and involves a series of sessions with the dentist.

 

Once the implants get perfectly attached to your jawbone, a customized set of dentures is bonded. After they are inserted, the dentures can't be removed without the help of a dentist. It is the primary distinction between dentures that are supported by implants and conventional ones.
