Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Today’s modern dentures look just like natural teeth, including even the tiniest imperfections and various shading to create a personalized, flattering smile. If you envision a chalky, blocky, or unnatural-looking smile when you think about dentures, explore the more modern denture options at Doral Sedation & Family Dentistry.

What are the different types of dentures?

Dentures are artificial teeth (prosthetics) that replace some or all of your natural teeth. They’re an exceptional option for restoring your smile in a quick, affordable way. 

Partial dentures

Partial dentures replace some natural teeth to close any gaps in your smile. Partial dentures are removable or fixed in place using dental implants (metal artificial tooth roots).

Full dentures

A set of full dentures replaces all of your lower and upper teeth to perfect a beautiful smile. You can take removable full dentures out of your mouth, while implant-supported dentures are fixed in place. 

What should I expect when wearing removable dentures?

Your dentist uses digital technology to create custom-fitted, removable dentures. When the new dentures arrive, your dentist shows you how to place them in your mouth and remove them. They can make minor adjustments to the dentures at this point, so it’s important to let your dentist know if you feel any discomfort against your gums. 

It may take some time for you to get used to wearing a new set of dentures. For some patients, it takes a couple of weeks before their dentures begin to feel completely natural and comfortable. 

Removable dentures remain firmly snug against your gums. If you ever experience problems with the feel or fit of your dentures, see the Doral Sedation & Family Dentistry team.  

What are the benefits of implant-supported dentures?

Implant-supported dentures use several metal implantable posts to secure an entire arch of artificial teeth. It’s an excellent option if you desire a secure attachment and a long-lasting, durable smile without having to deal with removing your dentures. 

Implant-supported dentures also preserve jawbone health. Implanted posts stimulate your jawbone when you chew or bite, keeping the affected bone dense and strong.

Once your dentist inserts implant-supported dentures, they remain in place indefinitely unless you schedule a separate dental procedure. It’s important to continue proper oral hygiene routine and attend regular dental exams, allowing your dentist to check the health of your mouth and dentures.
