What are Dentures Exactly?
Dentures are dental restorations designed to replace several, multiple, or all teeth missing in a smile. These prosthetics are highly customizable and come in various types based specifically on your tooth replacement needs.
Most dentures consist of artificial teeth, typically made of porcelain or ceramic materials, that rest permanently on a pink acrylic base. They can use adhesives, natural suction, metal or acrylic clasps, or dental implants for lasting security.
What Denture Options Do You Offer?
Dr. Andrew Lim and his team at Family Specialty Dentistry have been providing quality denture options for over 25 years. We’ve established a relationship with a trusted local lab known for only using durable, safe, and natural-looking materials. Our team can better ensure the overall quality of your restoration from the very beginning. You can rest assured knowing that skilled hands are crafting your denture.
Our available options include:
- Complete Dentures
- Partial Dentures
- Implant-Supported Dentures
We offer a variety of implant dentures, all designed to look and feel like your natural smile. They are supported by four to eight dental implants. Implant-supported dentures are similar to traditional options, but do not use adhesives or natural suction for lasting security.
Denture Repairs & Relines at Family Specialty Dentistry
A key part of successful and long-lasting treatment is adjusting and repairing dentures when necessary. Our professionals will assess your restoration's integrity and adapt its fit, function, and appearance according to your needs.
What Do Relines Involve?
Relining consists of adding a new acrylic base material to the tissue area of your restoration, ensuring a more comfortable fit. Our team takes digital x-rays and impressions of your smile and existing dentures for a precise shape.
Relining restores the overall fit of your prosthetic. Typically, there is no alteration of your denture’s appearance or addressing any wear or damage. Relining is often needed when gum tissue changes due to age, prolonged tooth loss, or severe gum disease.
What About Repairs?
Professional repairs consist of replacing broken or damaged artificial teeth, adding a new denture base, or restoring it completely.
When more extensive repairs are needed, we’ll work closely with our trusted denture lab to ensure quick and effective fixing that does not compromise quality. Contact our team so we can get you in for an exam as soon as possible.
Complete Dentures for Restoring a Full Arch of Teeth
Complete dentures are ideal for replacing all teeth missing in a smile. These restorations are designed to restore total tooth loss in the upper or lower jaws or both. They consist of a full set of porcelain or ceramic teeth that rest on a pink body-safe acrylic base.
Complete dentures often come in removable or implant-supported variations. While they require adjustments over the years, these prosthetics help to preserve facial muscles and make speaking and eating comfortable once more.
Partial Dentures for Customized Comfort
Like their full counterparts, partial dentures consist of artificial teeth that also rest on a pink base. These restorations, however, are designed to replace multiple teeth missing throughout the smile when some healthy teeth still remain. Typically, they use metal or acrylic clasps attached to neighboring natural teeth for a long-lasting anchor.
Partial dentures are crafted to protect your remaining teeth and prevent them from shifting out of place. This, in turn, helps to preserve jawbone, avoid shrinkage, and restore biting.
How Do I Care for My Dentures?
Removable full or partial dentures require proper care to keep them clean, stain-free and looking their best.
What to do:
- Always handle your dentures with care.
- Rinse gently and thoroughly with warm water.
- Clean your mouth after removing your prosthetic.
- Brush your dentures at least once a day.
- Soak in a solution overnight.
- Schedule regular dental checkups.
What to avoid:
- Abrasive cleaning materials
- Whitening toothpaste
- Hard-bristled toothbrushes
- Products containing bleach
- Hot water
How Long Will My Dentures Last?
Depending on the type, dentures typically last anywhere from five to seven years. Just as with natural teeth, they can stain and wear over time. Your restoration could last many years or more with good oral hygiene, care, and regular visits to our office for routine dental cleanings and oral health exams.
