For added security with the option of a removable denture, our overdenture implant option is a wonderful choice. Overdentures are conventional dentures that are stabilized by dental implant anchors, yet can be removed at the end of the day. They snap snuggly onto your dental implant roots to prevent them from rocking, moving, or causing sore spots when you wear them.
Do you need to replace several missing teeth at one time? removable partial dentures clasp in place around your existing teeth to free up space throughout your mouth.
Depending on the type of denture that you choose, your treatment may take 2 or 3 different appointments. It really depends on the health of your bone and other teeth in the mouth. For instance, you may need to have diseased teeth removed before having an impression made for your permanent prosthesis. When you schedule your consultation with us, we can discuss the process more thoroughly with you.
Are you still unsure of which type of denture is best for you and your lifestyle? We invite you to find out more about your personal treatment recommendations by calling us at 858-279-3455. Dr. Refahi will review the advantages to each type of denture and how they fit your personal oral needs, and whether or not one type of treatment is more optimal than the other for your smile.
Do dentures stay in place?
Though the conventional dentures are designed to be supported by gums, initially adhesives may be required to keep the restoration in place. This can be practiced until the tongue and the cheek get used to dentures. The case is not the same with implant-supported dentures. These restorations do not require any additional support apart from dental implants.
How to clean dentures?
Oral hygiene plays a crucial role be it fixed or removable dentures. The artificial teeth set can be removed and cleaned using a toothbrush. The denture can be dipped in warm water before cleaning it. Patients should make sure to remove all food particles from dentures since any remains can increase the risk of dental infection. dentures should be handled carefully since they may break if they slip and fall.
