Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are prosthetic devices that replace a whole arch of teeth or both arches at once. You can also opt for partial dentures to replace many missing teeth in an arch while keeping your remaining healthy teeth.

The loss of adult teeth happens due to cavities, oral trauma, or aging. It isn’t like losing baby teeth because your adult teeth are meant to be permanent. Dentures work well to replace missing teeth and are customizable according to the shapes, sizes, and shades of your natural teeth. 

Traditional prosthetic dentures include ceramic teeth and acrylic gums. They’re removable so they’re easy to clean. 

What are the advantages of getting dentures?

If you’re thinking about getting dentures at HP Dentistry PC, consider these advantages:

  • Soft, comfortable acrylic that is gentle on your gums
  • Replacing a large number of teeth is simple
  • No surgery is required
  • Easy mending if your dentures break
  • A fuller face while wearing dentures
  • Improved speaking and pronunciation
  • Easier biting and chewing food
  • They last for several years

Dr. Pasnikowska and the team at HP Dentistry PC helps you weigh your options during a consultation and can help you make the right decision on the type of denture that’s best for you, whether it’s a partial or full set, or if you need implants as well.  

How are dentures fabricated?

The first phase of treatment with dentures is a thorough screening of your mouth and jaw. If you’re getting traditional, non-implant-supported dentures, Dr. Pasnikowska helps you decide if you should get a partial or complete set. She can also talk with you about whether adding implants is the best option for you.

The team takes detailed scans and X-rays to use while designing and fabricating your dentures. They send the data to a dental laboratory, and your dentures should be ready within a few days. 

Once they are ready, Dr. Pasnikowska double-checks the way they fit and look in your mouth. She also makes sure you feel comfortable wearing them and sends you off with a list of care instructions.
