Dentures are removable or fixed dental appliances that are used to restore your smile by replacing missing teeth. If some or all your natural teeth are lost due to decay, injury, or gum disease, you can consider dentures as a tooth replacement option to benefit the aesthetics and health of your smile. Loss of teeth can cause the facial muscles to sag, making you look older. High-quality dentures from the office of Comfort Dental Care can fill out the space created by missing teeth in a natural-looking way.
Apart from conventional full and partial dentures, we also offer fixed dentures and denture stabilization to help your dentures fit securely in place as you eat, speak, and smile. These options are particularly useful for those people who are worried about slipping and ill-fitting dentures. They provide tremendous fixation and support and keep your upper and lower jawbone from receding.
It is not uncommon for people to take some time to adjust to their new dentures. Some people say that initially, their dentures feel awkward and loose inside the mouth. This may happen for the first few weeks since the muscles of the cheek and tongue could take a while to adjust to the dentures. Some people also feel mild soreness and irritation, and an excess flow of saliva. These issues go away as you get accustomed to your dentures.
You must care for and properly maintain your dentures just like your natural teeth. To prevent drying out, dentures must be stored in a soaking solution when you are not wearing them. Dentures can be kept clean by brushing them using a soft toothbrush and non-abrasive cleaner. You also must brush your gums, tongue and inner cheeks before wearing and after removing your dentures. In case you feel your dentures are loose or have broken, please bring them to us. Trying to repair them on your own could permanently damage your dentures.
