Dentures are also known as “false teeth” or a “plate”.
Having missing teeth is a problem that should be addressed immediately because this can actually lead to more problems such as:
An unpleasant smile
A weaker bite
Shifting of teeth
Bone loss in the jaw
Other dental and oral health problems
Here at All Smiles Dental, we do not want you to put up with these consequences. That is why we see to it that we can provide you with high-quality dental treatments under Restorative Dentistry, like these traditional Dentures.
What are Dentures?
These are removable dental appliances made up of artificial teeth to replace those which you have already lost.
Dentures aid in chewing, speaking, and in providing sufficient support for your facial features so that your youthful appearance and your beautiful smile can be restored.
Types of Dentures
Partial – replaces one tooth or several teeth
Full – replaces an entire row of teeth on the upper or lower
The Procedure Involved in Getting Dentures
In the initial consultation, your dentist will assess your suitability.
Next, we will discuss a treatment plan with you. Typically, getting dentures can take up to 2 to 4 appointments.
During the first appointment, impressions will be taken from your teeth. These are then sent to the dental lab so that a custom tray can be produced.
At the next appointment, a more accurate impression set in wax is obtained using the custom tray. And a temporary denture is manufactured and tried.
Then, your dentures will be fitted. Comfort and fit will be assessed.
An immediate denture is made when a tooth is extracted and the denture is fitted immediately to replace the missing tooth, This type of denture will need to be adjusted or replaced in three to six months after the extraction.
