Dentures are artificial teeth that replace missing, loose, or severely decayed natural teeth to give you a full set of beautiful teeth. Complete dentures replace all of your natural teeth, while partial dentures replace just a portion of your teeth.
Receiving dentures if you have severely decayed, loose, or missing teeth can help:
Dentures look and feel just like your natural teeth, and can give you the confidence you desire by perfecting your smile.
There are numerous types of dentures to choose from. Dr. Park and his team examine your teeth and gums, review your medical and dental history, take X-rays of your teeth, and discuss your expectations to determine which dentures are right for you. They may recommend:
Complete dentures replace all of your natural teeth. You might first require extraction to remove loose, decaying, or severely damaged teeth.
Partial dentures replace some missing permanent teeth, but not all of your teeth. They look just like your natural teeth. No wires are visible, so partial dentures blend in perfectly with the surrounding teeth.
Dental implants are artificial teeth attached securely to titanium tooth roots. Dr. Park can surgically place them into your jaw bone as an alternative to removable dentures.
Dr. Park completes denture placement within three visits. During the first appointment at Park Family Dentistry, he can extract any remaining teeth if necessary or surgically place dental implants into your jawbone. After your gums heal, he fits you for dentures by taking impressions of your teeth so the dental lab can create your new, custom dentures.
At your final appointment, Dr. Park secures crowns firmly to dental implants and ensures the dentures fit correctly. If you require denture repairs, he can complete them in a day.
To properly care for your new dentures, keep remaining natural teeth and gums clean. Brush them at least two times daily and avoid chewing on hard objects. If you have removable dentures, soak them in a denture-cleaning solution as recommended by Dr. Park, and avoid wearing dentures at night whenever possible.
Don’t let missing or weak teeth prevent you from feeling confident when dentures can restore your attractive smile. Schedule an appointment with Park Family Dentistry over the phone or online today to find out if dentures or partials are right for you.
