Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth and restore oral functionality.
Partial dentures replace a few missing teeth and attach to your palate and existing teeth. Full dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth and rest on your gums.
If you have multiple missing teeth, dentures might be a suitable option. The prosthetic devices improve your ability to chew, speak, and maintain facial structure. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Kasbidi to determine if dentures are the right solution for your specific needs.
The process begins with an assessment of your oral health and a discussion about your preferences and lifestyle.
If you need partial dentures, Dr. Kasbidi takes impressions to create a custom-fit appliance that attaches to your remaining teeth.
For people needing full dentures, Dr. Kasbidi takes measurements and crafts a denture to fit your gums. Multiple appointments may be necessary to ensure a comfortable fit.
Today’s dentures have features that make them comfortable and functional. Dr. Kasbidi works closely with you to ensure your dentures are properly fitted and comfortable.
Expect an initial adjustment period as your mouth gets used to the new appliance. Your mouth may feel full or slightly uncomfortable at first as your tissues adapt to the new prosthetic. Increased salivation is common in the beginning as your mouth responds to the new dentures.
As you adjust, you may notice changes in your speech, including difficulty pronouncing certain words. You will adjust with time.
Chewing may feel different, too. Start with softer foods and gradually introduce a variety of textures as you gain confidence.
Proper denture care is essential for their longevity and your oral health. Remove and clean your dentures daily with a denture brush and mild cleanser. Be sure to clean your gums and any remaining teeth as well. When not in use, keep your dentures moist to prevent warping.
