Full and Partial Dentures

Full and Partial DenturesDentures are perhaps the most common type of restoration that is used to replace an entire arch or all your teeth. You may be a candidate for partial or full dentures if you have suffered from tooth loss. Our Phoenix full dentures expert can help you explore all your options so that you can make the choice that best meets your needs.

Full Dentures Phoenix

Full dentures combine a flesh-colored base that uses suction or gravity to remain in place. The false teeth are attached to this base. Our expert in full dentures in Phoenix may recommend conventional full dentures or immediate full dentures based on your needs. Conventional dentures are placed only after your gums have healed following any necessary extractions. Immediate dentures can be placed right away while the tissues are still healing, but they may require additional adjustments as the bone and gums heal and reshape.

Partial Dentures Phoenix

Our Phoenix partial dentures expert may recommend a partial denture if you are missing just some of your teeth. Partial dentures use a metal framework or precision attachments that clip to some of your remaining teeth. This keeps the denture secure in your mouth so that you can eat and smile.

Regardless of the type of denture you get, you may have a period of adjustment. As your cheek and tongue muscles become stronger, you will find it easier to eat, talk and smile with your new restorations. Our expert in partial dentures in Phoenix may suggest that you wear your dentures constantly for the first few days so that we can better identify areas that require further adjustment.

Once you have gotten used to your new dentures, they can last for years. Clean your dentures according to recommendations, and brush, rinse and soak them to keep them clean. Brush your gums, palate and tongue at least daily to stimulate your oral tissues and keep bacteria levels low. Even if you no longer have any teeth, regular dental checkups continue to be important. Most people need to visit about twice a year, but your recommended schedule may be more or less frequent based on your dental health history.
