Dentures

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth that replace missing teeth in your mouth. They come in a variety of forms, such as:

Full dentures

Full dentures replace all of the teeth in your mouth, so your teeth must be completely removed before your dentures are created. They are made to look and feel like your natural teeth. These custom dentures come complete with gums to help you chew, laugh, smile, and talk with ease.

Partial dentures

Dr. Strain recommends partial dentures to patients with plenty of healthy teeth left. Partial dentures replace only teeth that have succumbed to tooth loss, decay, or injury, while the rest of your teeth are left untouched.

Implant-supported dentures

Implant-supported dentures are prosthetic teeth supported and anchored by dental implants. These implants keep your prosthetic teeth securely in place, so they don’t slide around in your mouth when you talk or eat.

How are cosmetic dentures different than traditional dentures?

Traditional dentures have a reputation for looking ultra-white, polished, and too perfect. Many patients often feel uncomfortable wearing their dentures, as they tend to stand out. At Rob Strain, DDS, cosmetic dentures are created to make your prosthetic teeth look and feel identical to your natural teeth.

Cosmetic dentures are straight, white, and polished, but they are not quite as unnaturally perfect as traditional dentures. Instead of looking perfect, cosmetic dentures look more like natural teeth that have been well cared for over the years.

Some patients even bring in photos of their teeth before experiencing tooth loss to mimic the natural appearance of their smile. Above all else, cosmetic dentures allow you and Dr. Strain to customize your smile and make it look as unique and natural as possible.

How can I care for my dentures at home?

Cosmetic dentures look and feel like your natural teeth, but they require the same cleaning techniques as traditional dentures. If you want to preserve them for as long as possible, it’s important to clean your dentures after eating and drinking anything other than water.

Brush your dentures at least twice a day and submerge them in a basin of warm water to keep them from drying out or changing in shape. To ensure your mouth remains healthy, brush your gums, tongue, and the roof of your mouth every day.

Cosmetic dentures can reignite your self-esteem and keep your smile looking healthy and natural. To learn more, call Rob Strain, DDS, or book an appointment online today.
