There will be an adjustment period for your new dentures or overdentures as your mouth gets used to them. However, after this period you should not experience any problems with your dentures at all. Call today to schedule an exam and learn how prosthodontics can help improve your overall health and appearance. Our team is here to address all of your questions and concerns! We recommend that our patients receive a thorough dental exam every six months in order to stay on top of any problems or dentistry issues.
Traditional dentures are fully removable and are cleaned by placing them in a glass with a cleaning solvent. If you have teeth that are broken or damaged that need to be pulled, the entire process can take several weeks to a few months. All of your remaining teeth will need to be removed and we will then need to wait until your gum tissue has healed completely.
Immediate dentures are also fully removable and can be a temporary solution while your teeth heal. We will take an imprint of your mouth and jaw prior to the removal of your teeth to fit your temporary dentures. These teeth can be worn while the gum tissue heals but may need to be refitted after your gums have completely healed.
Overdentures are a partial solution that can help you keep your remaining teeth that are healthy which in turn helps you to maintain a strong and healthy jawbone. This denture will fit over the healthy teeth which have been specially treated. If you take this option, you will need to brush your remaining teeth as normal and treat the overdenture with a solvent. A similar option is to use permanent implants in place of the overdenture.
