For patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth, we’ll likely suggest getting full dentures in Jupiter. These consist of a set of custom-shaded artificial teeth that are secured to a gum-colored acrylic base. The foundation is specially designed to harness the power of natural suction and denture adhesive to stay in place so you can eat and speak with ease. Full dentures are also completely removable, making them easy to clean.
Our patients who are looking for a more permanent and durable tooth-replacement option also consider having their full dentures retained by dental implants, which are titanium posts that are fused with the jawbone.
Our patients who are missing many teeth on an arch and who would like to preserve their remaining pearly whites can greatly benefit from receiving partial dentures. These are realistic-looking artificial teeth that are attached to a thin, gum colored acrylic base. They are held in place with a specially designed foundation made from either acrylic or metal. It’s designed to discreetly fit around your remaining teeth and hold your denture in place without altering them.
Maintaining Your Dentures
Proper denture maintenance is crucial in order to prevent infections or other oral health issues from arising. It’s also a great way to make sure that your dentures have a long lifespan and continue looking like new! Here are a few routine denture care tips:
- Wash your hands before handling your dentures.
- Place a towel or rag on your bathroom counter while cleaning your dentures so they won’t accidentally slip off and become damaged.
- Take your dentures out before bed and store them in a glass of room temperature water.
- Clean your dentures using a special denture brush and denture cleaner.
- Keep up with routine oral hygiene.
