Dentures (Full and Partial)
Holmes Dental is excited to offer dentures, a reliable and effective solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile. Our experienced dental team utilizes advanced techniques to create custom dentures that fit comfortably and enhance your oral health.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are removable dental prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. At Holmes Dental, we offer two main types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures. Dentures provide several benefits, including restoring the ability to eat and speak properly, improving facial appearance, and boosting self-confidence.
Full dentures are designed for patients who have lost all of their natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw. The process of getting full dentures involves an initial consultation, impressions, fittings, and adjustments. Proper care and maintenance are essential to ensure the longevity and optimal functionality of your full dentures.
Partial dentures are used when patients have some natural teeth remaining in the upper or lower jaw. These dentures fill the gaps left by missing teeth and restore proper bite alignment. The process of getting partial dentures includes examination, impressions, framework design, and final fitting.
Caring for Your Dentures
To keep your dentures in good condition, follow these care instructions:
- Regularly clean your dentures by rinsing them after meals, brushing them daily with a denture brush or soft toothbrush, and soaking them in a denture cleaner.
- Maintain oral hygiene by brushing your gums, tongue, and remaining natural teeth (if applicable) with a soft-bristle toothbrush.
- Properly store your dentures by keeping them in a denture solution or water overnight to keep them moist and maintain their shape.
- Schedule regular dental visits to ensure the fit and condition of your dentures and to address any concerns or adjustments needed.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures offer several advantages to patients, including:
- Restored functionality: Dentures allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence, restoring your ability to chew and articulate properly.
- Improved aesthetics: Dentures fill the gaps left by missing teeth, enhancing your smile and facial appearance.
- Enhanced self-confidence: Dentures provide a natural-looking solution that can boost your self-esteem and restore your confidence.
