Dentures

You can purchase affordable dentures to replace a few teeth which may be missing, or to replace all the missing teeth on an upper or lower arch in your mouth. These are dental appliances that will be custom fit to your mouth and colored to match the remaining teeth in your mouth. It usually takes some getting used to when you first have dentures installed, but any discomfort quickly fades away, and you’ll be comfortable with them within a few days. Modern dentures are generally made of hard resin, although in the past porcelain or plastic was more prevalent.

Denture After Care

Given the fact that any material used in making your dentures will be less hard than your natural tooth enamel, some care is required to keep your dentures functional and looking good. Avoiding hard foods like nuts and ice is advisable, and performing regular dental hygiene can help keep your dentures in good working order as well. When cost is your over-riding issue with tooth replacement, having dentures installed may be your best possible option.

Types of Dentures

There are some options now available which add to the variability of having dentures installed. You can have full or partial dentures installed, you can have denture implants to make them last much longer, and you can have snap-on dentures installed by having mini-implants fused into your jawbone. To find out what type of dentures might be most appropriate for your situation, you should discuss with your dentist. After examining your mouth, a good dentist will be able to make a determination on the most suitable type of dentures for your circumstances.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where can I find dentures near me?
A: If you live in South Carolina, and you’re near either James Island, Camden, Summerville, or Charleston, you can contact the professionals at Ammons Dental by Design to inquire about top-notch dentures.
Q: What kind of care is needed for dentures?
A: Dentures can’t be whitened, because they’re made of plastic. It’s a good idea to brush them regularly though, so food particles and bacteria can be removed.
Q: Can dentures be worn at night?
A: Yes, they can. However, it’s a good idea to take them out at night so your gums have a chance to rest up from the pressure they exert.
Q: Will I be able to eat normally with dentures?
A: It usually takes a while to get used to eating with dentures, but after you’ve mastered this, eating can be very much like normal.
Q: Is it painful to have dentures installed?
A: There is usually some irritation involved when dentures are first implemented. However, this generally fades away within a few days.
Q: What are permanent dentures?
A: Permanent dentures are those which are supported by mini-implants, and these are anchored to your jawbone so they stay in place indefinitely.
