Dentures Q&A

What are dentures?

Dentures are prosthetics that can replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They can help restore your lower and upper arch for a natural-looking appearance and fit. Creating your customized dentures require planning and careful measurements from the team at Conshohocken Dental Care. However, they can ensure your new smile is comfortable and functional. 

What are the different types of dentures?

The experienced team at Conshohocken Dental Care offers several types of dentures and can help you decide the right approach to improving your oral function. 

Depending on your oral health needs, they may recommend:

Full dentures

Full or complete dentures replace the upper and lower arch of teeth. They consist of artificial teeth and acrylic gums to replace all of the teeth in your mouth and mimic your natural gums. The prosthesis rests on your gums, covering the roof of your mouth for a comfortable fit.

Partial dentures 

Partial dentures replace a few teeth and are ideal if you still have plenty of healthy teeth left in your mouth. Unlike full dentures, partials don’t rest directly on your gums, and instead, they use a metal framework to attach to surrounding teeth for support. 

Immediate dentures

Immediate dentures allow you to receive a complete smile in just one day. Your dentist extracts teeth from your mouth and then places temporary dentures. These temporary prosthetics protect your gums as you heal. After a period of healing, you return to the office for permanent dentures. 

Implant-retained dentures

Implant-retained dentures are secured by dental implants (replacement tooth roots). They secure your dentures in place for a natural appearance. 

How do I care for my dentures?

It’s important to care for your new dentures just as you would for your other teeth. The team at Conshohocken Dental Care may recommend:

  • Brushing them daily to remove plaque and tartar buildup 
  • Soaking them overnight to help your dentures keep its shape
  • Using denture adhesive to help your dentures stay in place
  • Scheduling regular dental visits to check on your oral health
