What Are Dentures?

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. They’re custom-made to fit snugly over your gums and can replace all the teeth in your upper or lower jaw (full dentures) or just a few missing teeth (partial dentures). Dentures are typically made from acrylic resin and can include metal clasps or frameworks for added support.   Dentures help restore the look and function of your smile after tooth loss and allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again.

Types of Dentures

Full Dentures

A complete denture can replace all the teeth in either your upper or lower jaw. They rely on suction and sometimes denture adhesives for secure placement. Complete dentures are ideal for individuals missing all their teeth in a specific arch.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are for those who still have some natural teeth remaining. Partials fill in the gaps created by missing teeth, restoring a complete smile. They typically clasp onto your existing permanent teeth for stability, offering a comfortable and functional solution.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant dentures provide the ultimate in comfort and stability. Unlike traditional dentures, they are anchored to dental implants surgically placed in your jawbone. This creates a stronger hold, preventing slipping or shifting during speaking or eating. This option is ideal for those seeking a long-term, secure solution for missing teeth.

Benefits of Dentures

Dentures offer a variety of benefits for people with missing teeth, including:

  • Improved Chewing and Speaking: Dentures allow you to chew food more effectively and speak clearly, enhancing your overall quality of life.
  • Restored Appearance: Dentures can restore a natural-looking smile, boosting your confidence and self-esteem.
  • Enhanced Facial Structure: Dentures can help support your facial structure, preventing sagging and wrinkles that can occur with missing teeth.
  • Improved Oral Health: Dentures can help prevent remaining teeth from shifting and may improve oral health.
  • Cost-Effective Solution: Compared to dental implants, removable dentures are a more affordable option for replacing missing teeth.

  • Improved Chewing and Digestion: Dentures restore your ability to break down food effectively, allowing you to enjoy a wider variety of foods and promoting better nutrient absorption.
  • Clearer Speech: Dentures fill gaps and improve tongue placement, allowing you to speak clearly and confidently without slurring or mumbling.
  • Enhanced Confidence and Self-Esteem: Dentures restore a natural-looking smile, boosting your self-esteem and allowing you to participate more fully in social interactions.
  • Facial Structure Support: Dentures help preserve the facial muscles by providing support and preventing sagging, promoting a more youthful and defined facial profile.
  • Improved Oral Health: Missing teeth can create gaps where food particles can easily get trapped, leading to gum disease and other oral health problems. Dentures fill these gaps and help prevent this issue.
  • Reduced Pain and Discomfort: Dentures evenly distribute bite pressure and provide a smooth surface that rests comfortably on the gums.

Receiving Custom Denture Appliances

Initial Consultation

This initial appointment involves a discussion with Dr. Saad about your needs and expectations. The dentist will assess your oral health, take X-rays, and discuss the various types of dentures available to determine the best option.

Dental Impressions

Dr. Saad will take precise impressions of your mouth and gums. These impressions create a mold used to fabricate the custom denture base that will fit comfortably and securely.

Design and Fabrication

Dentist meeting with patientThe dental impressions are sent to a dental laboratory where skilled technicians design and create your custom dentures. This stage involves selecting the size, shape, and color of the artificial teeth to achieve a natural and aesthetically pleasing smile.

Try-In Appointment

Once the dentures are fabricated, you’ll return to Dr. Saad’s office for a try-in appointment. This allows the dentist to assess the fit and aesthetics of the dentures. You can provide feedback on the fit and appearance, and any necessary adjustments can be made at this stage.

Final Fitting and Care Instructions

Upon finalization, you’ll receive custom dentures and thorough instructions on proper insertion, removal, and daily care routines. This includes cleaning techniques and proper storage methods to ensure the longevity of your dentures.

Caring for Your Dentures

Proper denture care is essential for maintaining good oral health and maximizing the lifespan of your dentures. Here are some key practices to follow:

  • Daily Cleaning: Clean your dentures thoroughly at least twice a day, ideally after meals, using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a denture cleanser specifically formulated for dentures. Avoid harsh soaps or toothpaste, as these can damage the dentures.
  • Brushing Your Gums: Brushing your gums with a soft toothbrush and water helps remove plaque and bacteria that can contribute to gum disease.
  • Soaking Your Dentures: Soak your dentures overnight in a denture cleaning solution to remove plaque and prevent them from drying out and becoming brittle.
  • Handle with Care: Always handle your dentures with care when inserting, removing, or cleaning them. Rinse them over a sink filled with water to prevent breakage if you accidentally drop them.
  • Regular Dental Check-Ups: Schedule regular dental checkups to ensure your dentures continue to fit properly and to maintain good oral health. Your dentist can also check for signs of gum disease or other oral health issues.
