Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are an oral prosthetic device used to replace full arches. Full dentures fit replacement teeth into an acrylic, gum-colored base that is made to fit your specific arches. For the upper arch, full dentures include a plate that covers the roof of the mouth and helps make the denture more stable.
At our practice, we offer immediate full dentures. In most cases, this means that your denture treatment will begin by removing only the teeth that are behind your canines. During the 8-week healing period, our dentist will create a customized denture prosthetic. Once the dentures are complete, you will have the remainder of your teeth removed and your dentures inserted. For more people, immediate dentures are a better option because they do not have to go several weeks without teeth while their dentures are being created. We never have our patients leave without a complete smile.
Because immediate dentures are inserted almost directly after surgery, they may have to be relined within 3 to 6 months after you receive them. This is due your gums shrinking during the healing process. However, our dentist will ensure that your dentures are relined to fit your smile snugly and comfortably. If you have questions about dentures or want to know if full dentures are right for you, we invite you to contact our dentist or talk with our dentist.
