Dentures are used to restore your teeth and gums. Dentures are a viable option when patients have lost most or all of their teeth due to disease, poor oral hygiene, or accidents. We provide two types of dentures, complete and partial.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Their are wo main types of dentures are available, complete and partial dentures.
Types of Dentures
We provide partial dentures near you to support dental bridges or replace many missing teeth. Partial bridges are comprised of at least one artificial tooth held by clasps that fit onto your surrounding teeth. These dentures are removable. Patients will remove their partial dentures to clean or at night.
Complete or full dentures are used to replace all of your teeth. They are removable dentures, held in place by suction. We provide two types of complete dentures near you, immediate and conventional.
Immediate dentures are made prior to extraction. During your first visit, your dentist in Lake Worth Beach will take impressions of your jaws. After your teeth have been extracted, the dentures are placed immediately. An advantage of this type of denture is that they prevent patients from being toothless during recovery. The recovery period can last up to six months. Your dentist in Lake Worth Beach will reline your dentures if your gums or bones shrink during recovery.
Overdentures are removable dentures that are placed over your remaining teeth or implants.
Maintaining Your Dentures
If you’re looking to receive complete or partial dentures near you, ensure you are taking proper care of them. Your dentures need to be regularly cleaned to prevent tartar and plaque from accumulating. The plaque can spread to your gums and teeth, causing cavities and gum disease.
It’s essential to keep your dentures clean. You will rinse your dentures to remove excess food particles. You will then gently brush your dentures with a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild soap or a denture cleaner. Thoroughly rinse your dentures before wearing them again.
