Dentures are artificial teeth that replace some or all of your natural teeth. You might first need extractions to eliminate severely damaged or decaying permanent teeth or bone grafting to restore and strengthen a weak jawbone.
Solay Dental offers an array of dentures to match your needs, including:
Full dentures replace all of your natural teeth after they fall out or need extraction.
Partial dentures replace some missing natural teeth, while your dentist leaves the healthy remaining permanent teeth intact.
Artificial tooth roots (metal posts) inserted into your jawbone anchor implant-supported dentures. They remain fixed in place and aren’t removable, except by your dentist.
Traditional dentures are removable. You can take them out of your mouth as needed during the day and at night while you sleep.
If you’re missing permanent teeth or require extraction, the advantages of choosing dentures at Solay Dental include:
Dentures look, function, and feel just like natural teeth. They’re long-lasting, sturdy, and high-quality.
Your Solay Dental provider examines your gums and teeth, takes dental X-rays, reviews your oral health history, and asks about your dental health goals before tailoring a treatment plan that’s best suited for you. They discuss your options and let you know what to expect.
What happens while getting dentures depends on the type you receive. Your dentist may first remove damaged or decaying permanent teeth. They scan your mouth to create custom-fitted traditional or implant-supported dentures.
During implant placement, your dentist cleans and numbs the treatment area and inserts tiny metal posts into your jawbone. There is a healing period involved with implant-supported dentures — your dentist explains the details during your consultation.
After ensuring your new full or partial dentures fit properly and comfortably, you begin wearing them. Follow your dentist’s instructions to thoroughly clean removable dentures.
Brush and floss your new teeth, avoid chewing on hard items, and see your Solay Dental provider at least every six months for regular dental cleanings and exams. Call the office any time you have questions.
