What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, dentures might be just what you need to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile. There are two kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

  • A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in one or both arches, depending on your individual needs. Our dentist may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
  • A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have natural teeth remaining. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

Our dentist may recommend complete or partial dentures to restore your smile if you are missing multiple teeth; dentures can improve your ability to properly speak and eat, restore your natural facial volume, and enhance the overall beauty of your smile. Your dentures will be custom-made to fit your smile comfortably, aesthetically, and securely. We invite you to call or visit us soon to learn more about how dentures can improve your smile!

Candidates for Dentures in Atlanta, GA

Patients who need dentures are typically those who have experienced significant tooth loss. This can happen due to decay, gum disease, injury, or other dental issues. These patients may be missing several teeth, an entire arch, or all of their teeth. With missing teeth, patients often face challenges with chewing, speaking, and maintaining oral health.

Candidates for dentures may have remaining teeth that are in poor condition and need extraction. On the other hand, they may already have no remaining teeth. Dentures offer a solution to restore not just your mouth’s function but also your smile’s aesthetics. With dentures, you can improve your ability to chew and speak as well as boost your self-confidence and quality of life.

Cleaning Tips for Dentures

Proper care for dentures is vital to keep your mouth and dentures healthy. Furthermore, it can help extend the life of your dentures. Here are some key points to remember:

Cleaning: Brush dentures daily with a soft-bristle brush and mild soap or denture cleaner to remove food particles and plaque.

Soaking: Remove dentures at night and soak them in water or a denture-cleaning solution to keep them moist and clean.

Handling: Handle dentures with care to avoid damage. When not in use, keep them in a denture-safe container.

Regular Check-Ups: Visit the dentist regularly for adjustments, cleaning, and to ensure a proper fit.

Oral Hygiene: Even with dentures, it is crucial to maintain good oral hygiene. This means that you need to brush your gums, tongue, and remaining teeth (if any) to prevent plaque buildup and infections.
