DENTURES

Have you lost a tooth or multiple teeth due to any reasons? Whatever the reason might be remember that Tooth loss can impact negatively the routine tasks such as eating and speaking.

The expert dentists at Genesis Dentistry are offering Dentures to restore oral health and function.  If you want to know about it more then let’s talk more about the different types of dentures and whether this treatment is right for you.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable appliances that are fabricated from acrylic (plastic), nylon, or metal. The best part of dentures is that they fit snugly over the gums to substitute missing teeth and eradicate potential issues that the gaps may cause. The problems could be eating and speech, and teeth on either side of the gap may raise into the space at an angle.

What are the Types of Dentures?

There are various types of dentures. If you want to know about the type of dentures that are right for you then visit our specialists at Genesis Dentistry and get your customized denture right away. We fabricate dentures according to the unique oral health needs of our valued clients.

·        Full dentures

Consist of artificial teeth and a gum-colored base. The dental experts at Genesis Dentistry also call it a complete denture, this appliance substitutes the complete arch of missing teeth. A full denture is fitted over gums and depends on your palate or lower jawbone ridge for support.

·        Partial dentures

Some patients only have a few teeth missing in such cases partial dentures are the best option. These also rely on your gums and underlying bone for support. PD has special clasps that snuggle around your remaining natural teeth, offering additional stability.

·        Immediate dentures

When the patients undergo dental extractions, they are given immediate dentures. These are used as temporary appliances. Once the extraction area heals our expert dentists replace them with your final dentures.

·        Implant-retained dentures

If you have less jawbone ridge and gums for support our dentists will provide you with implant-retained dentures. These dentures are attached to dental implants. You may have queries about this type of denture if yes then book an appointment with our dentist and discuss your case today.

·        Implant-supported dentures

This type of denture is non-removable. You don’t have to remove them again and again rather this is a permanent solution to your problems.

If you don’t want to remove the dentures again and again then this is the perfect oral appliance for you.

What Happens During a Denture Consultation?

Our dental team will examine your mouth, including your jaws, gums, and remaining teeth. The bone thickness will also be checked with the help of X-rays. The dentist may ask you a few questions before proceeding with the treatment: such as the number of missing teeth and your preferences for removable or nonremovable appliances, Jawbone density, and volume.

 After a thorough checkup, our dentists at Genesis Dentistry will discuss your treatment plan with you. If the dentist determines that you’re eligible for dentures, then the dental team will take dental impressions.  After this step, the dental technician will fabricate customized dentures for you.

How to Take Care of Dentures?

After getting dentures you have to clean them as often as you normally clean your natural teeth. Following are some of the take-home instructions.

·        To remove food particles, you have to soak the dentures in water and brush your dentures with toothpaste or soap.

·        Denture-cleaning tablets will help to remove stains and bacteria.

·        Brush the dentures gently and scrub them too hard

Remember that Dentures may break if you drop them, to avoid breakage clean them over a sink filled with water. For more details about dentures visit Genesis Dentistry and get the best dentures ever.
