Dentures are a cost-effective restoration method for tooth replacement and can be full or partial depending on a patient’s needs. Dentures are custom-made and can help restore the function of your mouth and teeth. Traditional dentures are removable and are secured with adhesive material. Implant-supported dentures involve implants on either side of the area where you are missing teeth.

Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures are a common solution for patients seeking a quick way to restore their smile.Traditional dentures are custom-made to fit properly around the gums and bone structure of the mouth.

 

This type of denture is completely removable for cleaning and is kept in place by using a denture adhesive product. Traditional dentures can restore a smile, but do not have the support or power compared to other options. This type of denture can be made quickly and looks natural when you smile.

Full Dentures and Partial Dentures

 

Traditional dentures can be made to replace a full arch of teeth or a partial area of missing teeth and can help keep surrounding teeth in place to avoid structural issues. With today’s technology, partial dentures can be made around existing teeth to keep your natural teeth that are remaining. This helps to keep a healthy tooth structure and supports the jaw, face, and mouth.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are a great solution for patients that want their teeth replaced directly after extraction. Immediate dentures help to provide function and look natural but do not provide the long-term function that a traditional denture would.

 

This type of denture can help you eat and speak better immediately without the waiting time. Typically, patients that choose immediate dentures must return to our office for adjustments, or have the dentures replaced once the tissue around the extraction has healed. Regular visits to check for changes in the gum tissue and mouth function are needed with immediate dentures to ensure proper healing and fit. This can result in additional costs to the patient.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are held in place by implants that are anchored on either side of the jaw. This type of denture does require healing time before the final dentures can be attached to the implants and held in place. If patients would like the option to remove their dentures they can be snapped on and off, or permanently placed.

 

Implant dentures can help to stimulate jaw bone health and help the overall health of the patient because the implants are anchored to the jaw. This option does not slip around like dentures and does not require removal for cleaning.

Implant-supported dentures allow patients to eat and drink the foods they love and live a healthy lifestyle. Patients do not have to worry about their teeth shifting, falling out, or moving out of place like with immediate or traditional dentures. They look natural in the mouth and restore confidence when speaking, laughing, or smiling around others.

 

At Floor Dental Group we provide many options for our patients to choose from. Our team of doctors can help you learn about each option, and our consultation and exam process can help you choose the option that best fits your needs and budget. Restoring your smile can be life-changing and we can help you get started towards a brand-new smile.

Am I a Candidate For Implant-Supported Dentures?

Dental implants are one of the most popular restorative solutions for missing teeth.

 

Combined with dentures create a solution for patients that want an alternative to traditional dentures without needing a full set of implants. At Floor Dental Group our consultation and exam process will take a detailed look at your mouth and teeth, and determine if you are a good candidate. Our doctors review your health history, take x-rays, and evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums. We also discuss your smile goals to help you choose the right option.

 

The best candidates for implant-supported dentures are in good oral health and have sufficient bone density to support the implants required. If you already have traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are a great option and are less invasive than full-mouth implants. Patients that have never had dentures may choose implant-supported dentures because they last longer and require less maintenance compared to immediate or traditional dentures.

Denture Maintenance and Repairs

Denture Care and Cleaning

 

Taking care of your dentures can help lengthen their life and keep them feeling comfortable.

 

It is important to clean dentures regularly or schedule appointments to be seen in our office for your cleaning and exam. Dentures that can be removed should be brushed twice daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush to prevent damage. Dentures can be left in warm water or a denture solution and soaked overnight. Keeping dentures moist can help prevent shape loss or damage.

Implant-supported dentures are cleaned similarly to our natural teeth. Brushing and flossing daily are required. Water flossers are helpful to remove sticky bacteria and food from around the dentures. Regular appointments should be scheduled in our office to professionally clean the dentures, check gum health, and overall dental health.

 

Denture Maintenance

 

Floor Dental Group helps to maintain dentures and also provides repair services. If your denture does not fit properly or is uncomfortable, we encourage you to make an appointment to be seen. Our doctors can examine your mouth and dentures to ensure they are positioned correctly, and determine if an adjustment or correction is necessary.

 

Denture Reline

 

Over time gum tissue and jaw bone density can change, and this can cause your dentures to not fit properly. Denture relining involves adding material to your denture to help the device fit comfortably again, and reduce slipping or movement. We recommend patients come into be seen once a year to have their dentures examined, or contact us right away if your dentures feel loose and need an adjustment.

 

Soft Denture Reline

 

Our soft denture reline repair can be done in our office and involves adding a soft polymer to ensure comfort and fit. The process is easy and our soft relining can last between 1-2 years.

Hard Denture Reline

 

Hard denture reline requires the device to be sent out to a lab. The process is more involved and a harder material is used and added to the denture for optimal comfort and fit. This option restores your dentures and typically lasts two or more years.

 

Signs That Indicate You May Need a Denture Reline

 

  • Gum irritation.
  • Difficulty chewing food.
  • Dentures are slipping or shifting out of place.
  • You have gone more than a year without an exam.
  • Dentures are uncomfortable.
  • You suspect an infection or notice swelling in or around your dentures.

 

Denture Rebase Repairs

 

Denture rebase repairs can help replace the denture base material without the need for replacing the artificial teeth. This helps to provide a more stable structure and can repair a base that is cracked or old. Rebase repairs can help to restore a denture and allow you to wear the denture comfortably. We recommend contacting our office immediately if you notice a crack or issue with your denture base material, and we will ensure you are seen right away.

 

Signs Your Dentures Require Repair

 

  • Denture is cracked or broken.
  • Pink-acrylic base is old and is no longer comfortable.
  • You have an immediate denture and need an adjustment or replacement.
  • You have not been seen for over a year.
