Choosing prosthetic teeth is a major decision. Dentures are your chance to rebuild your smile after losing teeth as well as regain the ability to eat, speak and laugh with confidence. At Three Creek Dentistry, we value the importance of making your denture experience positive and rewarding. We take the time to explain your denture options and help you determine which denture model suits your personal needs and goals best. We have a skilled dentist that pursues the latest dentures in restorative dentistry, including full and partial sets that look, feel and function just like real teeth.
When patients are missing a full arch of lower or upper teeth, a full denture is recommended. These may be removable or secured in place with dental implants. We are happy to discuss the pros and cons of each option. Regardless of how or why you lost your teeth, we make it a priority to help you regain a beautiful and healthy smile. A full set of teeth can revive your self-esteem as well as protect your future health.
If you have several missing teeth but still have healthy teeth, you may qualify for a partial denture. A partial will complete your smile and prevent your natural teeth from shifting out of place. Just like our full denture options, our partials are custom-crafted to provide optimal comfort and ideal aesthetics. If your denture feels loose or gets damaged, we want to know about it as soon as possible. We will ensure your denture gets repaired properly and quickly for your convenience.
When it comes to restoring your smile after losing teeth, choose Three Creek Dentistry for an unrivaled experience. Because your smile matters, we offer top-of-the-line denture options at our Derwood office. To learn more about full or partial dentures from a skilled restorative dentist, contact us today.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of dentures?
Modern dentures are designed to look natural and feel comfortable, making them an excellent tooth replacement option that many patients choose to utilize. Our team works with each patient to ensure that their custom dentures help them achieve a smile that they truly love showing off. Other benefits of full and partial dentures include:
- Improve appearance and functionality of the smile
- Increase self-esteem
- Make it easier to eat and speak with confidence
- Support facial muscles
- Easy to clean and maintain
How do I ensure my dentures last for as long as possible?
The best way to ensure that your dentures last for many years is to clean them thoroughly every single day. You will need to use toothpaste, toothbrushes, and cleaners that are specifically made for dentures to avoid damaging them. After cleaning your dentures each night, they will have to be soaked in a denture cleaner to keep them moist, which helps them maintain their shape. If your dentures ever look a little stained, there are a couple of different home remedies and denture stain removers you can use to make your dentures appear whiter.
What can I eat after I get my dentures?
Eating with dentures will take some getting used to, but we hope that eventually you will find that eating with dentures is easier than eating with missing teeth. At first, you’ll want to stick with soft foods that require very little chewing, like applesauce, cream of wheat, and pudding. Once you become more comfortable eating with dentures, you can slowly begin to resume your normal eating habits. When you start adding hard foods back to your diet, we recommend cutting them into small pieces and chewing with both sides of the mouth equally.
