Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable or fixed artificial teeth that replace missing natural teeth. You might need dentures because of permanent tooth loss, severe tooth damage or decay, or the need for dental extraction. The Flatlands Dental Care team customizes dentures treatments based on your lifestyle and preferences to give you the vibrant, healthy smile you deserve. 

What are the advantages of dentures?

The benefits of dentures available at Flatlands Dental Care include:

  • Beautiful smile
  • Sturdy, long-lasting teeth
  • Clearer speech
  • Easy chewing
  • No tooth gaps
  • No adjacent teeth shifting
  • Improve facial contours
  • Self-confidence

Dentures look just like your natural teeth, so people won’t know you have them.

What are the different types of dentures?

Dentures are available in various sizes, styles, and types. Partial dentures replace some of your natural teeth, while full dentures replace all of your original teeth. Implant-supported dentures attach to metal posts that act as artificial tooth roots. You can take out removable dentures when you need or want to.

Overdentures rest comfortably over the top of some remaining natural teeth, and you can choose an option of same-day dentures on the day of tooth extraction. Your dentist lets you know which dentures are the best match for you.

What should I expect when getting fitted for dentures?

You can expect the following when receiving dentures:

Implant-supported dentures

If you lack enough jawbone to support dental implants, you might first need bone grafting before your dentist places dental implants into your jawbone during minor surgery. They first numb the treatment area to ensure you don’t feel pain. They then scan your mouth and attach implant-supported dentures to the implants.

Removable dentures

Your dentist fits your mouth for removable dentures after completing dental extraction, if necessary. After a dental lab creates custom-fitted traditional dentures, your dentist makes sure they fit comfortably over your gums.

What happens after I receive dentures?

Whether you have implant-supported or removable dentures, it’s important to take good care of them. Brush your teeth after meals or use a dentures cleaning system as directed by your dentist. Avoid chewing on hard objects and attend dental exams and cleanings every six months. Call Flatlands Dental Care if your dentures get damaged.
