Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable tooth replacement devices that are worn directly over your gum tissue. They’re a great choice for men and women who want to restore their smile in a way that is aesthetically pleasing, as well as affordable. 

Dentures consist of a span of false teeth attached to a flesh-colored acrylic base. Full dentures include an entire span of upper and lower teeth. Partial dentures replace missing teeth while leaving your healthy natural teeth in place. 

Implant-supported dentures are a newer type of denture. These consist of a span of artificial teeth attached to several dental implants. Implant-supported dentures are a durable option, but are also among the most expensive denture types. 

Are dentures the right option for me?

You have choices when it comes to replacing missing teeth and the right fit for you depends on numerous factors. Dentures offer a wonderful option for men and women who aren’t good candidates for dental implants. 

Some people have immune system issues that make any form of oral surgery an unsafe proposition. For others, bone loss makes them poor candidates for dental implants. The cost of implants can also be prohibitive for some, but a great new set of dentures can be a good alternative. 

If you’re interested in pursuing dentures, broach the subject with Dr. Rosenblatt during your next dental exam. He can assess your current dental health and guide you toward the option that is right for you. 

Are dentures comfortable to wear?

Advancements in dental technology have revolutionized dentures. In previous decades, dentures were not only somewhat false-looking, they also offered a terrible fit. Many men and women had to purchase special dental adhesives to help secure their dentures to their gums and prevent dentures from slipping or falling out while eating or speaking. 

Today’s dentures are made from high-quality materials that offer a great fit. Your dentures are custom crafted to fit the exact specifications of your mouth. 

Newer dentures fit snugly over the surface of your gum tissue. There are no “hot spots” or abnormal friction within your mouth, and removing dentures for cleaning is simple. 

The fitting process might include taking a set of impressions or using a digital scanner to gather information about the size and shape of your gum tissue and any remaining teeth. If you notice any areas of discomfort when you come in to pick up your new set of dentures, Dr. Rosenblatt can make minor adjustments to improve the fit.
