A partial denture replaces a few missing teeth in a row, while a complete
denture replaces all teeth on the top or bottom arch. At Spectacular
Smiles, both partial and full dentures are made of durable resin material
to complement your appearance and restore the function of your teeth.
Complete and partial dentures are designed to feel natural in your mouth
and securely fit your jaw. If you are missing most or all of your natural
teeth, you could greatly benefit from a set of full dentures to restore
your mouth to its proper function and appearance. These removable
prosthetics are custom-crafted to fit precisely into your mouth, and they
can help you chew food properly and speak more clearly.
The Procedure for Dentures
After an examination with our dentist, they will take impressions of your
gums and send them to the laboratory that creates your dentures.
Meanwhile, we may provide you with temporary dentures to use during the
fabrication process. Once your permanent dentures are ready, we’ll
schedule an appointment to place them in your mouth. The denture will be
placed over your gums using a unique adhesive. You’ll then need to
learn how to properly care for your dentures at home. This often includes
practicing how to speak and eat with your dentures in. Getting comfortable
with your new partial or full dentures may take a little time. But once
you learn how they function and how to care for and clean them, you should
be back to enjoying your favorite foods in no time! Our dentists may
suggest you try eating soft foods for the first couple of days until you
learn how to speak and eat with your new teeth.
