Partial and Full Dentures
Partial dentures are usually used if you are missing several teeth, but most of your remaining teeth are healthy and in good condition. They are typically made out of acrylic and metal materials that support several false teeth. A special framework attaches your partial denture to your healthy teeth and holds your denture in place.
Full-arch dentures, on the other hand, are only used when most or all of your teeth are seriously damaged. This is because they fit directly over your gums, and require the extraction of all of your remaining healthy teeth. If you have lost most or all of your teeth due to decay, gum disease, or a serious oral injury, full-arch dentures may be right for you.
What Can I Expect From The Denture Process?
The denture process will vary depending on whether you need partial or full-arch dentures. Partial dentures will usually require you to come in for several appointments over the course of a few weeks. First, Dr. Ahmed will take impressions and images of your teeth to help create a set of partial dentures that will fit perfectly in your mouth.
When the denture is created, you’ll come in to try it on and ensure that it fits properly, and any minor adjustments can be made in our office. Once the denture fits perfectly, you’ll be given instructions on how to care for it, and then you’ll be sent home with your new smile.
The process of getting a set of full-arch dentures is slightly different. First, you’ll need to have all of your remaining teeth extracted and we will give you a temporary set of dentures to wear while your gums heal.
When your gums are healed, you’ll come back in for your follow-up appointment and Dr. Ahmed will take impressions of your gums to begin building your dentures. Once your dentures are made, you’ll begin wearing them right away! Patients typically come back for a follow-up appointment a few weeks later to make any necessary adjustments.
