Dentures Q & A
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable replacement teeth. There are two options for dentures: complete and partial.
With complete dentures, Dr. Danielewicz extracts all of your remaining teeth because of decay or damage. With partial dentures, you still retain some natural teeth and your dentures fill in the gaps to stop your natural teeth from shifting out of position.
Dentures are custom-made to closely resemble your natural teeth, or even an idealized version of your natural teeth, if you wish. Today's dentures are so advanced that many find them to be a very natural-looking and comfortable option for teeth replacement.
What is the dentures process like?
The Smile Doctors dental team does everything possible to make your dentures process smooth, easy, and quick. You'll receive your new dentures.
Before Dr. Danielewicz extracts your teeth, he makes an impression of your teeth and gums. Then, the practice’s state-of-the-art equipment creates your dentures based on that impression while Dr. Danielewicz removes your teeth.
Following your extractions, Dr. Danielewicz cleans your mouth thoroughly and inserts your brand-new dentures.
What can I expect after I get new dentures?
It's normal for your gums and bone to shrink to some degree following the tooth extractions. This may impact the fit of your dentures, and if necessary, Dr. Danielewicz can perform same-day repairs to ensure that you're never left without teeth.
You may need a denture relining or rebasing in the future, depending on how significantly your gums and bone shrink after the extractions. This is also an easy procedure at Smile Doctors.
Be sure to strictly follow all recovery instructions for optimal healing. This may include a soft diet as you adjust to the new dentures. Be very meticulous about socket care to discourage inflammation and infection so you can have a comfortable and easy healing process.
As long as you take good care of your mouth and your new dentures, you can expect them to be a very durable and aesthetically pleasing option for teeth replacement.
