Dentures Fair Haven VT
Dental Office Fair Haven VT
Our dental office offers dentures to replace missing teeth. Dentures are removable teeth replacements, which are also known as mouth appliances. You may have lost some or all your teeth due to gum disease, decay, or injury. Choosing dentures may be the best option due to affordability or health reasons. But regardless, dentures are great for improving your speaking and chewing abilities. A patient that needs full teeth replacement will need complete dentures. And, those with a few missing teeth benefit from partial dentures. These two types of dentures can either be conventional, immediate, or overdenture.
Conventional - These traditional dentures are custom made after all teeth have been removed and gums have healed. Patients typically need to wait a few months between recovery and receiving the dentures.
Immediate - Immediate dentures are more convenient because they are given to the patient the same day of teeth removal. However, the patient will need to return to have the dentures readjusted after the gums heal for proper fitting,
Overdenture - If a patient has remaining teeth, overdentures can be used. The remaining teeth work as support for the dentures to “snap-on”. Also, dental implants can be used with overdentures.
Are dentures comfortable?
Dentures need to be properly fitted to offer the best comfort. At first, your dentures may feel odd and chewing may seem difficult. With time and practice, you will get used to them. Contact us if you notice irritation or pain.
How do I care for my dentures?
Dentures need to be brushed and rinsed twice a day. This helps remove bacteria and prevents bad breath. When not in use, store them in clean water. Please note that they are delicate and need to be held carefully. Be sure to clean your mouth twice a day as well. You need to brush your gums, cheeks, tongue and palette. Overtime, your dentures will need to be readjusted as your mouth changes shape.
