Dentures Matthews, NC Restore Smiles and Confidence

Dentures, also known as false teeth, are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth and restore the function and appearance of a person’s smile. Dentures have been a popular and effective solution for tooth loss for many years, offering a comfortable and affordable option to individuals who have experienced tooth loss due to various reasons. Dentures Matthews NC encompasses the entire process of assessing, creating, fitting, and maintaining dentures to ensure optimal functionality and aesthetics for the wearer.

There are several types of dentures available to cater to the specific needs and preferences of individuals who have experienced tooth loss. The different types of dentures include:

Full Dentures (Complete Dentures)

Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw are missing. These dentures consist of a full set of artificial teeth mounted on a gum-colored acrylic base. Full dentures are removable and are designed to provide a functional bite and an aesthetically pleasing smile.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth are still present in the upper or lower jaw. These dentures are designed to fill the gaps created by missing teeth and prevent the remaining teeth from shifting. Partial dentures typically have a metal or acrylic framework that attaches to the existing teeth for stability. Artificial teeth are then attached to the framework to complete the restoration.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a more secure and stable option compared to traditional removable dentures. They are anchored to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone. The implants act as a foundation for attaching the dentures, providing increased stability, improved biting and chewing capabilities, and a more natural feel.

Overdentures are a type of denture that can be placed over a few remaining natural teeth or dental implants. The remaining teeth or implants provide stability and support to the overdenture, enhancing its retention and reducing the need for adhesives. Overdentures offer improved comfort and functionality compared to traditional removable dentures.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are fabricated in advance and are ready for placement immediately after the natural teeth are extracted. These dentures provide a temporary solution while the gum tissues heal and adjust to the tooth extraction. Immediate dentures allow individuals to have functional teeth and maintain their appearance during the healing process. Once the gums have healed completely, adjustments or a new set of dentures may be required for a better fit.

Custom Dentures

Custom dentures are individually crafted to fit the unique oral structure of the wearer. They take into account factors such as the shape, size, and color of the natural teeth to create a natural-looking and comfortable set of dentures. Custom dentures offer superior fit, function, and aesthetics compared to pre-fabricated dentures.

Adjustments to a Denture

Over time, adjustments to your prosthesis will be necessary. As you age, your mouth naturally changes, which can affect the fit of the partial or denture. Your bone and gum ridges will recede or shrink, resulting in a poorly fitting denture over time.

Dentures or partials that do not fit properly should be adjusted and, in some cases, relined. Poorly fitting dentures can cause various problems, including sores or infections. See us promptly if your denture becomes loose, and maintain your regular visits, too.
