Why a Denture?
Loose or painful teeth are usually caused by the advanced periodontal disease. If any of your teeth have become loose or painful, it may be too late for us to save them. In such a situation, removing all of your teeth and replacing them with a denture may be the best way to avoid infection and restore health to your mouth.
To begin the process of making a denture, we first take impressions of your mouth. From these impressions, we make precise working models of your mouth, and it’s on these models that we make the denture. We’ll work with you to select the best color and shape for your new teeth. When both the doctor and patient are happy with the look and fit of the denture, it is inserted into the patient's mouth.
Adjusting to Your Denture
Some temporary problems are a normal part of adjusting to your new denture. At first, it may seem bulky or tip when you chew. You may notice increased salivary flow. Your tongue may feel crowded and you may gag a little or have difficulty speaking. But don’t worry, as you get used to your new denture, these problems will go away.
Like learning any new skill, eating with your new denture will at first feel awkward. But with time and practice, you will make the adjustment. Nobody likes to lose their teeth, but when your teeth are infected, removing them and getting a denture can improve your health, smile, and confidence.
