Dentures / Removable appliances

 

Dentures can not only improve your smile but as well the quality of your life to a surprising degree.

 


Missing teeth can change a person’s smile, affect self-confidence and social life, and even make speaking and eating difficult.


Missing teeth also cause an aged appearance because of a ‘sunken’ look due to bone loss

Full or complete dentures are a prosthetic replacement for all of your teeth, while partial dentures use any remaining teeth for support.

If you have teeth that need removal, an immediate denture maybe your best option.  It is fabricated before teeth will be extracted and will be delivered on the day of the teeth extraction.

After post-extraction soft tissue healing, your denture can be modified as many times as necessary. Our dental technician can adjust it so that your denture feels comfortable and you can speak and eat properly with it. You may need a new denture when your jaw bone will completely heal after extractions.

New dentures definitely require an adjustment period. They may feel big and uncomfortable and it will take some time to get used to speaking and eating with them.

With a complete denture, the uppers are usually more stable than the lowers ones since there is more surface area for better adhesion. The lowers tend to be less stable. They have a smaller area of adhesion and the tongue can unseat the denture. You can think about all-on-4 / all-on-6  dental implants. These options provide better stability as  the denture is attached to implants and feels just like your natural teeth. 

You can think about all-on-4 / all-on-6  dental implants. These options provide better stability as the denture is attached to implants and feels just like your natural teeth. 

The expected average life-span of a full denture is about 5-7 years, however, most probably you will wear the same set for a longer period of time. There are many factors that affect the life duration of your dentures such as the force and type of your byte, jaw bone loss, your diet, and at-home hygiene. When you notice that your denture has become loose and unstable, chances are it’s time for a reline or a new denture.

Diastema or A Gap Between  Teeth

Diastema or a gap between teeth is often the result of a difference between the size of the jaws and the size of the teeth. When teeth are too big for the jaw they usually become overcrowded. In the case of diastema, it is the opposite-the jaw is too big and small teeth can have gaps between them. Missing teeth or undersized teeth may cause diastemas too. Bad oral habits, such as excessive thumb-sucking can lead to diastema as well. A large labial frenum (the tissue that connects your lips and gum) can cause midline diastema. Diastema Closure...

Tooth pain and sensitivity after a filling

Now and again, some patients experience tooth pain and sensitivity after the placement of a composite(white) filling. There can be a few reasons for the sensitivity. Materials used Composite materials used for white fillings are flexible and durable, isolate the tooth, and bond so well that less of the tooth needs to be prepared to place the filling.
