Losing a natural tooth can be quite upsetting as it could leave a displeasing appearance on your smile. Also, the functionality of the mouth would be hindered, as the missing tooth can change the way you bite and chew food. If losing a single tooth would be so troublesome, imagine having multiple teeth extracted due to causes such as decay, oral trauma, or other oral infections. It could completely ruin your smile and alter your facial aesthetics significantly. Hence, we would like to provide the perfect solution to this concern using custom-fabricated dentures.
Dentures are oral prosthetics made from acrylic and dental-grade ceramic. They are widely used to replace multiple missing teeth, as they restore both oral aesthetics and functionality. Unlike most other dental restorations, dentures are removable, making them highly convenient and hassle-free.
When you visit us for the initial consultation, we will take precise digital scans of the mouth and screen it thoroughly. This helps us determine your candidacy for dentures and also serves as a reference for fabricating them. We will send the digital impressions to a dental laboratory, where they will be fabricated in a couple of weeks.
Once available, the dentist will place them in your mouth and check for fit and comfort. A bite test will be taken to determine how well they sit on the dental ridges. If you feel they are ill-fitting, the dentist will make the necessary changes to the prostheses and provide perfectly fitting dentures.
Taking good care of dentures can significantly increase their lifespan. It is advisable to avoid biting or chewing hard foods, such as ice cubes, nuts, candies, etc., as it could damage them. Clean them regularly with a soft-bristled toothbrush (no toothpaste involved) to remove the food debris and microbes. When you go to bed, please place them in a glass of water or dentures-cleansing solution, as it keeps them from warping. If you wish to get their fit altered, reach out to your dentist at the earliest.
