Get a picture-perfect smile in Glen Mills, PA, with dentures
While getting dentures isn’t a milestone to look forward to, these restorations allow you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak clearly even after losing all of your teeth. Advancements in restorative dentistry also mean you can get a better fit so you can avoid soreness and speak and eat clearly without difficulty.
Types of dentures:
Since every patient has unique needs, there are multiple kinds of dentures to choose from. Depending on the type of dentures you get, they can last anywhere from 5-30 years before you need a replacement. These can include:
- Partial dentures: When you are missing several teeth in a row, partial dentures are a flexible alternative to dental bridges that can be adjusted if you lose more teeth in the future. They are removable for easy care and cleaning, and they can be designed to match your teeth and gum color for a discreet restoration.
- Complete dentures: These traditional dentures replace a whole row of teeth, and rest directly on your gums. You’ll typically need to wait 8-12 weeks after extraction before placing your dentures to allow your soft tissue to settle into place for a good fit.
- Immediate dentures are placed as soon as your teeth are extracted, so you don’t need to wait months without teeth. However, they will need regular adjustments as your gums and jaw change shape.
- Permanent dentures: These are fixed dentures held in place by dental implants. They offer the best choice for restoring your smile. Not only do they last longer than other kinds of dentures, but they also replace the whole structure of your tooth, including the root, to prevent bone loss and a sunken face, and they will stay in place in your mouth for easier speaking and eating.
