What Are Dentures?
Dentures are custom-made replacement teeth that resemble your natural teeth and gums. If you're missing teeth on either your lower or upper jaw, these prosthetics may be the ideal solution for your situation. Dentures are removable, allowing for easy cleaning and maintenance. If you've lost your teeth due to an injury, tooth decay, or gum disease, our dentist will evaluate your smile to see if you would benefit from dentures.
Types of Dentures We Offer
At Legacy Dental Care, we provide a wide range of dentures to help our patients regain their beautiful smiles and oral health. Below are the types of dental dentures we offer:
Full Dentures: Complete or full dentures are prosthetic teeth that replace an entire arch of missing teeth on the lower or upper jaw, or both. These restorations are made of porcelain or ceramic, resting on a body-safe acrylic base which mimics the look of healthy gum tissue.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures, unlike full dentures, replace some missing teeth instead of a full arch. They rely on your remaining strong and healthy teeth as anchors to hold the prosthetic in place. Most people with a healthy bone structure and a remaining set of strong teeth will qualify for our partial dentures in Bowling Green.
Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are secured in place with dental implants. These dentures can fit either on the lower or upper jaw and stay firmly in place no matter the amount of force exerted on them during chewing, unlike those held in place by suction or adhesives.
Process of Getting Dentures
The steps you'll take before receiving dentures are simple and straightforward. To make sure that our Bowling Green dentures meet your unique needs, we'll first do a thorough oral examination and take x-rays to evaluate for any significant problems. We'll discuss whether any issues need to be addressed before we craft your dentures, as well as what kind of dentures would suit you best.
Next, we'll take an impression of your teeth and gums before creating your custom prosthetic. Our team then sends this information to a trusted lab, where your new dental appliance is crafted to fit your unique smile.
Finally, you'll return to our office for your fitting with your new custom dentures. Should you require an extraction, we can perform most extractions in-house. For complex cases, we will refer you to a trusted specialist so that you receive the care you need. We'll work closely with you to provide a denture with the optimal fit and appearance for your needs.
Denture Repairs and Relining
Dentures are fairly sturdy in daily use, but accidents can still leave them broken or not fitting as well as they used to. Your denture may also start to feel loose or may not fit as well over time as your jawbone and gum line change shape. Fortunately, you won't need to have a brand-new set of dentures made every time. We offer denture repairs and relining to alter your existing dentures and create the best possible fit.
Bring in your current dentures, and we will perform a full exam. The dentist will take impressions and determine what kind of work needs to be done. We then send your dentures to the lab to have them corrected. On average, this process takes about five days, after which we'll make any final adjustments, and you can enjoy your dentures comfortably once more.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures are a versatile and visually appealing way to restore the fullness of your smile and the function of your bite. You can expect to experience multiple benefits from dentures. These benefits include:
- Improved quality of life
- More effective chewing, biting, and speaking
- Preserved bite alignment as it keeps teeth from shifting
- Simplified maintenance, allowing for easy cleaning
Caring for Your Dentures
As part of the maintenance routine, always remove your dentures after eating, then rinse with clean water to remove any food particles. Next, you'll want to brush your gum tissues using a soft toothbrush before putting the dentures back in place.
Do not use traditional toothpaste to brush your dentures. Instead, use a mild denture cleaner and a soft brush to avoid potential damage. We do recommend soaking your dentures in clean water or denture cleaning solution overnight to maintain their elasticity and shape. To avoid changes in shape and size over time, you shouldn't use hot water on your dentures.
