Tired of loose-fitting dentures and avoiding tough and chewy foods?
Permanent dentures offer a cost-effective alternative that will restore your comfort and confidence. Missing teeth affect more than your appearance, it also makes it difficult to chew, drink, speak, and maintain your self-esteem. For many years, the only option for people missing some or all of their teeth was to wear full or partial temporary dentures. Although, this is not an ideal solution for most. Temporary dentures can be uncomfortable, limit the ability to taste, and can result in embarrassing situations. Permanent dentures are the solution to all of these issues.
There are many reasons that permanent dentures are preferable to bare gums or temporary dentures:
- Eliminates the need for oral adhesives
- Better stability results in more confidence
- Ability to taste is fully restored
- Look completely natural
- No more discomfort from poorly fitting dentures
- Remaining bone is preserved and facial structure is maintained
- Eat whatever you want without any restrictions!
How Are Permanent Dentures Installed?
Permanent dentures generally require 4-to-5 implants that are attached to your existing jawbone. After the implants are secured, temporary teeth are usually attached that allow you to function normally while waiting for the bridge to be constructed. Finally, the denture bridge is secured to your permanent denture installation is complete!
What does getting dentures involve?
The process of getting dentures requires several appointments, usually over a period of several weeks. Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture. Several “try-in” appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final appointment, your dentist will precisely adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.
It is normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulty, however this will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to the new dentures.
Our doctors will provide thorough care instructions for your new dentures. Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new dentures!
