What are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial prosthetics for replacing missing teeth. These fixtures are either permanent or removable, depending on your preference. Partial dentures are recommended when you have some healthy teeth remaining. A complete denture will replace an entire arch of teeth on the upper, lower, or both jaws.
Removable dentures rest on the gums and use adhesives to stay in place. Partial dentures use a combination of acrylic and wire clasps customized to fit precisely. If you are missing one or a set of teeth, dentures are a great choice that will restore your dental function and the appearance of your smile.
The Denture Procedure
Getting your dentures requires multiple appointments. Below are some of the main procedures:
- Digital imaging and examination to determine your oral health status. Dr. Hines will check for any signs of infection and whether extractions are necessary.
- If we perform extractions, the gums are left to heal for 6-8 weeks before your final denture preparation can begin. Our dentist will help you decide if you need partial, complete, or implant-supported dentures.
- Our in-house lab technician will create custom dentures to ensure perfect fit and comfort.
Caring for Your Dentures
How you care for your dentures varies depending on the type. Permanent dentures require regular cleaning and brushing, just like your natural teeth. Removable dentures require frequent cleaning as well. When not wearing your traditional dentures overnight, you need to store them in water or denture solution. This process will keep the acrylic from drying out and help maintain that perfect fit.
Expert Relines, Repairs & Rebasing
After wearing dentures for some time, they can become loose due to gum and bone structure changes and require re-adjustments. Having access to an on-site lab technician will ensure satisfactory results and save you time.
Our denture restoration options include:
Denture Repair: If your denture is damaged, we offer repair services to ensure a comfortable and perfect fit. Getting them repaired by our professional team will increase their longevity.
Denture Reline: This procedure reshapes the surface resting against your gums, so it fits correctly and supports your oral health. Since the soft tissues change over time, you need to have this procedure done every year or two.
Denture Rebase: This is the process of replacing the entire denture base without changing the teeth. Our dentist may recommend a denture rebase if they become damaged or break. It will also work if the denture base is worn, but the teeth are in good condition.
How are Implant-Supported Dentures Different?
These are dentures anchored to the jawbone for extra support. It uses up to eight implants to ensure a secure fit. With our advanced equipment, our Southfield denture treatments are high-precision, designed to perfectly fill in the gaps in your smile so you can regain your confidence.
Dental implants are unlike any other tooth-replacement available. These titanium posts provide a wide variety of aesthetic, functional, and health benefits. Some of the advantages include:
- The restored appearance of your smile
- Improved speaking and chewing
- Enhanced comfort
- Greater durability
- Increased self-esteem
- Improved long-lasting oral health
Part of the reason why dental implants are so popular is their versatility. The posts can be used as anchors for many restoration options, such as crowns, bridges, and complete dentures. When your dental restoration is affixed to dental implants, there is no need for adhesives, temporaries, or the worry of your appliance slipping or becoming dislodged.
