Do I need full or partial dentures?
Full dentures are recommended when you’ve lost all of your teeth or need all of your natural teeth replaced on either the upper or lower arch, while partial dentures are more suitable if you have some remaining natural teeth. Our skilled dental team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your oral health, taking into account factors such as the number of missing teeth, bone structure, and overall health condition, to recommend the best-suited option for you.
How are dentures taken care of?
Caring for dentures is essential to ensure their longevity and your oral health. Dentures need to be removed before they are brushed, and we recommend using a soft-bristle toothbrush and mild denture cleaner to clean all surfaces thoroughly. Full and partial dentures also need to stay moist to maintain their shape. Store them in water or a denture-soaking solution any time you’re not wearing them, especially overnight. During your routine dental visits, we will examine your dentures to assess whether any repairs are needed or if it’s time to replace them.
How long does it take to get dentures?
The entire process typically takes a few weeks to a couple of months, depending on the fabrication time and necessary adjustments, to achieve optimal fit and comfort. Your first visit will involve a thorough examination and discussion of your needs and preferences. Precise impressions and measurements of your teeth will also be taken to create custom dentures that fit comfortably and securely. Once the dentures are fabricated, you’ll have trial fittings to ensure proper fit, bite, and aesthetics, and any necessary final adjustments will be made.Contact Us
