What are Dentures?
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. While it takes a bit of time to get used to dentures, and while they will never feel the same as natural teeth, they are more natural looking and more comfortable then they’ve been in the past. The two types of dentures are full dentures and partial dentures. The best type of denture for you is based on the cost as well as whether some of your teeth are to replaced or all of them will be.

How do Dentures Work?
Full dentures use a flesh-colored acrylic base fitting over your gums. The upper denture covers the roof of your mouth (the palate), and the lower denture uses a horseshoe shape to accommodate your tongue. Using impressions taken of your mouth, custom made dentures are crafted in a dental laboratory. We will determine which of the following denture options is right for you right from our Gilbert dentist office.

Immediate Full Denture
After your dentist makes models of your jaw and takes measurements in a prior visit, an immediate full denture is inserted. Immediate dentures give you a tooth solution, however, they must be realigned after several months. As the bone supporting the teeth heals, the denture may become loose without realignment.

Types Of Dentures & Procedures In Gilbert Vista

Here are tips for caring for your dentures: Stand over a folded towel or basin of water when you handle your dentures. Dentures are fragile and may break if they fall. Keep your dentures moist. Place them in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in plain water when they’re not in use. Never use hot water, as it can warp your dentures. To remove plaque and food deposits as well as to keep them from staining, brush your dentures daily. Use an ultrasonic cleaner to care for your dentures, as well as a thorough daily brushing. Using a soft-bristled brush, brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning before inserting your dentures. Brushing stimulates circulation in your tissues and removes plaque. If your dentures become damaged or loose, schedule an appointment. Adjusting dentures yourself can damage them beyond repair.
