Dentures

 

Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and placed back into your mouth as you please. Depending on your individual condition, you may receive full dentures or partial dentures.

Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed and replaced with a full set of dentures.  
Prior to having your teeth extracted, Dr. Firlik takes impressions of your mouth and has dentures created for you. Then, after extracting your teeth, the dentures are immediately available for you to use. You will need a follow up visit to refit your dentures because the jaw bone will slightly change shape as your mouth heals. The dentures also will need tightening after the jaw has healed.

A partial denture is another option when some of your teeth can be saved.  A partial denture is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth. 

You might need some time to get accustomed to your dentures. When the base of the dentures is placed over the gums, some people find that it feels bulky or that they don't seem to have enough room for their tongue. At other times the dentures might feel loose. These feelings will affect the way you eat and talk for a while. Over time, however, your mouth becomes trained to eat and speak with your dentures as they begin to feel more and more like your natural teeth. They might not always feel perfectly comfortable, but dentures are sometimes the only solution.

Although dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them like they are. You should brush them to remove plaque and food particles before removing them. After they have been removed, you should place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. Never use hot water because it could warp the dentures. Your dentures are delicate, so take care when handling them and don't drop them. Also, never try to adjust your dentures yourself because you could damage them. Call our office if they feel uncomfortable or loose.
