Dentures

denture-before

At Bull Mountain Family Dentistry our dentures are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue.

There are two types of dentures - complete and partial dentures.  Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.  Partial dentures not only fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

A Complete denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate.”  A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4 to 6 weeks.  During this time the patient will go without teeth.  Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process.  Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

denture-beforeReasons to consider dentures and Partials:

  • Complete Denture - Loss of all teeth in an arch.

  • Partial Denture - Loss of several teeth in an arch.

  • Enhancing smile and facial tissues.

  • Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.

COSMETIC
