Dentures – Dentist in Cooper City FL
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available — complete and partials. Completes are used when all the teeth are missing, while partials are used when some natural teeth remain.
Who can benefit?
Dentures are beneficial for those who wish to replace all or most of their teeth. They are custom-made to provide a natural appearance and comfortable fit in your mouth. They may restore your confidence and allow you to smile freely.
Depending on your need, you may benefit from a full or partial set:
Removing all of your teeth may be valuable to your oral health. When your gums are healed, your dentures are placed in your mouth and adjustments may be made. Your dentist strives to make this process as comfortable as possible for you.
Immediate dentures are placed instantly after your teeth are removed. We recommend those who have suffered from tooth decay, gum disease or dental injuries. Immediate full dentures speeds up the wait time for healing without teeth. Follow-up appointments will have to be made to adjust dentures if needed.
Partials are used to replace several missing teeth. Partials prevent shifting and erupting of the other teeth.
You should care for them just like you would for your teeth. They should be brushed daily to remove food particles and plaque. Brushing can also help prevent the teeth from staining. You will also need to keep regular appointments with your dentist to screen for oral cancer, correct ill-fitting dentures and contribute to your overall health.
