Dentures Hillsborough, NJ
Dentures are artificial gums and teeth that can be used to replace missing or removed teeth. They will be perfectly molded to your mouth and, with proper denture maintenance, will look and feel like a full natural set of teeth.
- Improved oral health and decreased pain from problem teeth
- Overall appearance of your smile improved
- Dentures will assist in eating foods that require chewing
- Helps support facial structure around the lips and cheeks
Dentures are made of resin that is molded to fit to the shape of your mouth to act and appear as teeth. They are not only great for having the appearance of perfect teeth but also for acting like teeth while eating. Dentures are strong and will assist in chewing and breaking down any foods that require you to do so. They are also a great way to improve the overall health of your mouth. Often times as we age our teeth will decay and cause pain. Dentures allow you to remove those problem teeth and replace them with a beautiful set of new ones.
Ask us Anything…
Are you missing teeth and want to improve your smile and your life? Dentures can enhance your smile and make eating easier.
Dentures are a removable appliance designed to replace missing teeth and their surrounding tissue. They are designed to closely resemble your teeth and serve to complete the overall dental structure of your mouth, supporting both the normal function of your teeth and the natural beauty of your smile. There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, both filling the spaces left by missing teeth and preventing the remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
Complete dentures come in two types: conventional and immediate. Conventional dentures are created after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed; generally a 4 to 6 week process. During this time, the patient must go without teeth, so a set of immediate dentures is prepared in advance and placed right after the teeth are removed. This prevents the patient from having to go without teeth during the healing process. Once healing is complete, a permanent set of conventional dentures can be properly set in place.
Conventional Dentures (Full Denture)
Conventional dentures, also known as full dentures, are for patients who have lost all healthy tooth structure. These dentures are completely removable, giving you control over when you want to wear them.
Also known as a removable dental crown, partial dentures bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The major difference between conventional bridges and partial dentures is the ability to remove partial dentures. You have complete control over when you want to wear them! These dentures are only possible if some healthy tooth structure is salvageable.
Care and Maintenance
Your dentist will provide you with all the at-home care knowledge to ensure that your mouth is healthy, your dentures are comfortable and that they last for a long time. You will need to wear your dentures continuously for the first few weeks in order for your gums to adapt.
What are dentures made of?
Dentures are now made up of resin that is molded to fit your mouth comfortably.
How do you clean them?
Run clean water over them to remove any food particles then brush them with a denture brush or a very soft toothbrush using denture cleaner.
Can I use my regular toothbrush/ toothpaste to clean my dentures?
No! Regular toothpaste and electric brushed are to strong and abrasive for your dentures. Over time they will break down your denture material.
Can I sleep with my dentures in?
No, give your gums some time to relax. Take your dentures out while sleeping and keep them submerged in warm water so they don’t dry out and lose their shape.
What can this procedure repair?
- Loss of all teeth in an arch
- Loss of several teeth in an arch
- Problems with chewing, speech, and digestion
- Dissatisfaction with the appearance of one’s smile
- How is this procedure done?
How many appointments will getting dentures take?
Getting dentures requires several appointments over the course of several weeks. At your first appointment, the dentist will take precise measurements and create an individually customized mold that will be used to manufacture your “conventional” dentures. You will then be given a set of “immediate” dentures for use while healing takes place and the “conventional” dentures are prepared. Several “try-in” appointments are often necessary along the way to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final appointment, your dentist will precisely adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit and restoring your teeth to full function.
What kind of follow up care should I expect?
Shortly after dentures have been put in place, many patients experience increased saliva flow, mild soreness, and possible problems with speech and chewing. This is a normal reaction, and it will subside quickly as the muscles and tissues of your mouth get used to the new dentures. The dentist will provide detailed care instructions, and it is important to remember that proper cleaning, daily brushing and flossing, and regular dental visits all help to aid in extending the life of your new dentures. They are very durable appliances that will last many years with proper maintenance, but keep in mind that they sometimes have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.
