Dental dentures are dental appliances used to replace missing teeth. At The Waterford Dentist, we provide different types of dentures such as partial dentures, full dentures, traditional dentures, and implant-retained dentures, or dentures anchored by dental implants.
Dentures may be immediate (placed right after removal of tooth) or conventional (placed after the healing of tooth removal).
Modern dentures at The Waterford Dentist are beautiful and comfortable. The custom dentures we provide are also created to fill the gaps left by missing teeth, support the facial structure, and create a more youthful appearance.
This teeth replacement option can be partial or complete. Complete dentures are used if you have lost all teeth in the lower and upper jaw. Partial dentures are recommended if there are some remaining teeth. Having remaining natural teeth is great for retaining the shape of the jaw and securing the prosthetic teeth. But if most or all of the teeth are lost, you should consider dental implants, mini implants, or dentures anchored by dental implants.
Dentures, like most dental appliances, may take some getting used to. You may need to adjust for the first few days but you can eventually have an easier time eating and speaking.
Getting conventional partial or complete dentures typically requires more than one dental appointment to the dentist. Impressions are taken and used as casts that will serve as a guide for fabricating the permanent dentures. Once the replacement is ready, your dentist will fit the device and make adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.
