What are Dentures and Partials?

Dentures are removable oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. There are two kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

  • A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all teeth in one or both arches depending on your individual needs. Our dentist may recommend using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
  • A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have natural teeth remaining. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

Dr. Jackson Bean may recommend complete or partial dentures to restore your smile if you are missing multiple teeth; dentures can improve your ability to speak and eat, restore your natural facial volume, and enhance the overall beauty of your smile. Your dentures will be custom-made to fit your smile comfortably, aesthetically and securely. We invite you to call or visit us soon to learn more about how dentures can improve your smile.

Why would one need dentures or partials?
Losing teeth is a common problem, especially as people age. There are many reasons why teeth may fall out, including:

  • Decay
  • Gum disease
  • Injury
  • Oral cancer.

Patients may need dentures or partials if they have lost teeth due to these reasons.

How long does it take to get used to dentures?

It usually takes a few weeks to get used to wearing dentures. In the meantime, you may find it difficult to eat and speak. Dr. Jackson Bean will give instructions on caring for your dentures and what foods to avoid. With time and practice, you can talk and eat with your dentures.

What is the process for getting dentures?

The first step in the denture process is a consultation with Dr. Jackson Bean to discuss your treatment options and develop a personalized treatment plan. We will then take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create your custom denture.

Once your denture is ready, we will check it for fit and comfort, making any necessary adjustments. You will then be given specific instructions on caring for your denture and what foods to avoid.

If you are interested in learning more about dentures and partial dentures, we invite you to call or visit us soon. Our caring dentist and team will be happy to answer your questions and help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

What Do New Dentures Feel Like?

At first, dentures may feel foreign in your mouth and take some time to get used to. It is not uncommon to experience minor soreness or irritation, mainly when eating, as your muscles learn to hold your denture in place. These issues usually resolve within a few days to weeks as you adjust to wearing dentures.

You may also find that your dentures slip or move when you eat or speak. This is normal and can be addressed with the help of our dentist. In some cases, we may recommend using a denture adhesive to help keep your denture in place.

If you experience any persistent pain or irritation, please call our office so that we can make the necessary adjustments to your denture.

What Are the Benefits of Wearing Dentures?

The following are some of the many benefits of wearing dentures:

The Improve the Look of Your Smile

One of the most apparent benefits of dentures is that they can improve the appearance of your smile. If you are missing teeth, dentures can fill in the gaps in your smile and restore your natural facial volume. People who wear dentures often report feeling more confident in their appearance.

They Can Improve Your Ability to Speak and Eat

Another benefit of dentures is that they can improve your ability to speak and eat. If you miss teeth, it can be difficult to enunciate your words correctly. Dentures can help you communicate more clearly. Also, it can be difficult to chew your food properly if you’re missing teeth. Dentures can help you chew food more effectively, making it easier to digest.

Are easy to clean

Dentures and Partials are very easy to clean. You need to remove them and brush them with water and soap. We will demonstrate how to brush and clean them at your consultation.

They Can Reduce Further Oral Health Issues

Another benefit of dentures is that they can help reduce further oral health issues. If you are missing teeth, it can put additional strain on your remaining teeth. Additionally, gaps in your smile can trap food and bacteria, leading to cavities and gum disease. Dentures can help reduce these risks by filling in the gaps in your smile and evenly distributing the force when you bite down.

Made for your mouth

One of the best things about dentures is that they are made specifically for your mouth. That means they will fit comfortably and securely. You don’t have to worry about them slipping or moving around in your mouth.
