Dr. Kevin Khorshid of ABC Dental Implant Center understands the unique needs of denture patients. He knows that the mere mention of the word “dentures” can be an immediate negative to many people, but dentures have come a long way since our grandparents first took advantage of them. With the proper fit and care, dentures can be one of the most comfortable and natural-looking dental solutions out there.
Types of Dentures
Dentures aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution anymore. There are a variety of different types of dentures that patients can use to restore their smile. Whether you are missing all (or just a few) of your teeth, there is a denture solution that can help you.
These are commonly referred to simply as “partials.” Partial dentures replace a few missing teeth at a time and fit in between your remaining, healthy teeth. They are custom designed by Dr. Khorshid to match the size, shape and color of your natural teeth. Most people will never notice you are wearing partials.
Complete dentures are full sets of false teeth. They are either conventional complete dentures or immediate complete dentures.
Immediate dentures are an optional set of teeth that are able to be worn immediately after all of your teeth are extracted. They act as temporary dentures until your gums heal and your conventional dentures are ready.
These dentures are what most people picture in their mind when they hear the word “dentures.” They are a full set of removable upper and lower teeth.
Getting Used To New Dentures
It is important to understand that your new dentures will take some getting used to, but once you’ve had them for a few weeks, they will feel completely normal to you. It can take a while for your tongue to get the hang of working around them, and learning to take them out and put them in will require practice. Eating with new dentures will also require a little bit of practice, but most patients get the hang of it quickly. It’s important that patients follow all of Dr. Khorshid’s instructions for use and care, so that the adjustment period is as short as possible.
Maintenance & Care
Dentures can last many years if they are properly cared for. They are not unbreakable, so they must always be handled with care. Brush your dentures twice a day, and also brush your gums and tongue. Dentures must be soaked when they are not being worn, and it is important to only use the products Dr. Khorshid recommends. Certain products may scratch or stain your dentures, so always double check with the office before trying something new.
