Are dentures right for you? Dentures can provide the following benefits.
Full dentures are ideal for patients who have had their natural teeth removed. When patients have to remove all of their teeth, immediate dentures are placed so no one ever has to walk around without teeth. These are adjusted sometimes as your tissue and bone is healing and changing. Upon healing, the detures are realigned to get a more ideal fit.
Partial dentures are ideal for patients who have large gaps created by several missing teeth. They are similar to bridges, however, they are removable. There are both metal framework or nonmetal options for choose from.
Dentures are not anchored to your jaws and become loose over time. Implants help to maintain the jaw bone and increase the function of your dentures by securing them to the bone.
Daily maintenance is required in order to prevent the growth of bacteria and avoid permanent staining. It is important to treat your dentures as though they are real teeth to keep them bright and free of plaque. If your dentures break or crack, schedule an appointment right away. Ill-fitting dentures can irritate the gums and other areas of the mouth, leading to infection.
