What are full dentures?
Full dentures are an artificial set of teeth that are designed to replace the top and/or bottom arch of teeth. They are made from high-quality materials designed to make them look natural when in place. While many patients think of dentures as their grandparent’s false set of teeth from decades ago, advancements in dental technology have made these restorations as natural-looking and comfortable as possible.
There are several different ways that full dentures can be secured in place. They are:
- Natural Suction
- Denture Adhesives
- Dental Implants
What is the process for receiving full dentures?
Full dentures are fabricated in a dental laboratory from a set of precise measurements and specifications to fit in your mouth and look natural. The first step to receiving full dentures is for impressions to be made. If patients are not already missing all teeth within the dental arches, extractions may be required prior to impressions. The impressions and specifications are then sent to the dental laboratory.
Full dentures include the artificial teeth as well as artificial gum tissue. Once the dentures are complete and back from the lab, patients will return to the office for a final fitting. We always ensure that our patients are completely happy with the final fit and look of the dentures. During this appointment, we will also share tips for adjusting to the new dentures as well as how to care for them properly.
Caring for full dentures
With proper care, dentures can last patients for a long time. It’s important to remove the dentures every evening to soak in a denture cleaner. Dentures can be brushed, but it’s important to use a soft-bristled brush and nonabrasive cleaner.
