If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth – whether from gum disease, tooth decay or trauma – replacing missing teeth will benefit both your appearance and your overall health.
Dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth. When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag, making you prematurely age. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. We can make your dentures so they closely resemble your natural teeth, minimizing any change in your appearance. Or we can give you a straighter, whiter smile if you are looking for a cosmetic enhancement. The choice is yours.
It is normal for your new dentures to feel awkward or uncomfortable for a few weeks until you become used to them.
As you learn how to use your new dentures, these problems should go away. We will work with you to customize a follow-up schedule so any irritations or concerns can be checked and corrected as needed. If any problem persists, particularly irritation or soreness, be sure to consult your dentist.
This removable denture is made after all of your teeth have been removed and your gums have had adequate time to heal and remodel – typically 6 months after extractions.
If you are looking for a stronger fit, an implant-supported overdenture may be for you. While upper dentures can be quite stable, lower dentures tend to be less stable. By adding two implants to the lower jaw, we can increase your denture stability dramatically.
Never go a day without teeth. This removable denture is inserted on the same day that your teeth are extracted. Our team will work with you to take measurements, photos, and make models of your jaw and bite prior to any extractions, ensuring the best fit of your new denture. While you won’t be without teeth during the healing period, we may need to realign your denture after your gums have healed and remodeled (typically 6 months following extractions) or completely remake your denture if significant remodeling leaves your denture feeling loose.
Just like natural teeth, your dentures require care. We recommend you brush your dentures daily to remove food debris and plaque. Keeping your dentures clean will also help prevent the acrylic teeth from staining. If you have any questions or concerns about your dentures, or if they stop fitting well or become damaged, please call us so we can address your concerns. In addition, we will work with you to set up regular dental checkups to evaluate your oral health and ensure your dentures in Roseville continue to fit properly.
