Full & Partial Dentures

Dentures and Night Guards for Oral Well-Being

Dentures and night guards serve distinct purposes in oral health. Dentures are removable prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth, enhancing functionality and aesthetics. They are essential for individuals with extensive tooth loss. On the other hand, night guards, or occlusal splints, are custom-fitted devices worn during sleep to address issues like teeth grinding or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
Night guards provide a protective barrier, preventing dental damage caused by nocturnal teeth clenching and grinding. Both dentures and night guards contribute to overall oral well-being, with dentures restoring a complete smile, and night guards safeguarding teeth from nighttime bruxism-related issues.

The Major Benefits of Custom Dentures

There are numerous benefits to removable dentures, including better speech and chewing ability, a more youthful appearance due to supported facial muscles, and self-esteem due to a more attractive smile. The appearance and functionality of your mouth can be greatly improved with dentures, but getting used to them may take some time. You might feel uneasy or have trouble speaking at first. Brushing and flossing regularly is essential for keeping gums and dentures in good health.

How We Do Full & Partial Dentures

There are specific steps to follow in order to ensure that your full & partial dentures are comfortable and functional. This provides a thorough breakdown:

Initial Consultation

Visiting our dental office for consultation should be your initial step. During this visit, our dentist will examine your teeth and gums and go over the pros and cons of dentures with you.

Impressions and Measurements​

We take precise measurements of your mouth and make molds of it. These impressions are taken to ensure the dentures are comfortable and functional.

Modeling and Fabrication

A wax model or digital replica of the custom dentures can be created by our dentists using the impressions. Wearing the wax model or digital representation allows you to confirm the dimensions, contours, and hues. This is the time to make any necessary changes so that you can achieve your goal.

Final Fitting

A visit to our dental office following the fabrication of immediate dentures is the final step in the process. We make sure dentures look and feel good by checking their fit and appearance during this appointment. Any final tweaks are done to make sure the dentures look good and fit perfectly.

Ongoing Care

As the shape of your mouth changes over time, you may need to have your dentures adjusted. Having regular dental checkups and practicing good oral hygiene is crucial for maintaining healthy gums and natural teeth. Pay close attention to our dentist’s instructions if you desire your dentures to remain in place for an extended period and maintain good oral hygiene.
