At Dentistry in Bolton, our dentists may recommend dentures as a restorative dental treatment to replace one, multiple or all of your missing teeth.
What is a Denture?
A denture is a removable dental appliance used as an alternative to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. Taking care of your dentures is essential to your oral health. Our team recommends that patients brush their dentures to remove any food particles or plaque before removing the dentures. Due to daily wear, your dentures may require fixing or modification after a few years.
Full dentures are recommended to patients who need to replace the teeth of the entire upper or lower jaw. Full dentures are usually made with acrylic or porcelain teeth.
Partial dentures may be recommended to patients when only one or multiple teeth are missing. Normally, partial dentures are made from acrylic with metal supports and are customized to fit your mouth.
Implant-supported dentures may be recommended to patients who don't have any teeth in the jaw, but have enough bone in the jaw to support a dental implant.
After Your Denture Procedure
After you denture procedure, your full or partial dentures may affect the way you normally speak. Over time, you will get used to speaking, as well as eating.
Our dentists recommend cleaning your dentures by putting your dentures in room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution.
