Partial and Full Dentures

Family Dental Phoenix

Dentures are commonly seen in our current society. They’re an option for replacing missing teeth, especially if there’s more than one missing tooth involved. Dentures are affordable and can often be done quite quickly. Each set of dentures, whether full or partial, are custom made for each patient.

Full sets of dentures usually involve a false set of teeth with flesh-colored portions that fit over the top of the gums. They are often held in place by an adhesive and are removable. They function just like normal teeth however, they are a little more fragile than natural teeth. Partial dentures are usually used when only a few teeth are missing. These are often attached to a small metal frame which attaches to your remaining, natural teeth. There’s no adhesive involved, and they don’t come out as easily as full dentures do.

Gum disease is a very prevalent issue in our current society. Quite a large number of adults, and sometimes children, suffer with this issue. Gum disease is caused by plaque and bad bacteria building up under the gums causing an infection. This is usually due to a lack of oral hygiene. If gum disease is left untreated, it can turn into periodontal disease which means it has moved into the jawbone. Gum disease, at most levels, is largely treated by a process called scaling and root planing.

PARTIAL & FULL DENTURES

If full dentures are required, all remaining teeth must be extracted from the mouth. It’s common for a dentist to wait for healing to occur with the gums before fitting full dentures. However, there is such a thing as immediate dentures which allow the dentures to be fitted immediately upon tooth extraction. However, these often require adjustments after healing has occurred in the mouth.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Getting used to full dentures can take weeks, while partial dentures are much easier to ease into. Talking and eating may take some time to get used to since the dentures may feel awkward as the gums and mouth are adhering to the changes. Some soreness and irritation may be noticed and that’s normal with new dentures.

It’s suggested that a patient with full or partial dentures has a checkup once a year to ensure they still fit properly. The overall health of the patient along with the condition of the dentures will be examined.

If you have any questions pertaining to full or partial dentures, don’t hesitate to give us a call at any one of our locations.

This place is awesome. The atmosphere is dope. The staff is very nice and friendly. The place is so inviting. The exams and cleanings are VERY THOROUGH. They don’t just clean and send you own your way. They ask questions and get to know YOU. This was the best dental visit I’ve ever had.

What a great dental office. I was just in there today and the people are amazing! My oldest daughter and I were scheduled to get our teeth cleaned at the same time, but I had to bring my year and a half old daughter with us, it was daddy’s day while mommy had to run errands. They helped out so much so I could get my teeth cleaned until my oldest was done and she could watch her. Great people!
