What Are Partial and Complete Dentures?
Dentures use prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base to replace a portion of an entire set of teeth. Partial dentures fit among your remaining natural teeth in order to fill in the gaps. This allows us to preserve your healthy teeth without needing to modify them, such as with a bridge. As the name suggests, a complete set of dentures are used to replace an entire arch of teeth. Dentures can be held in place using natural suction, metal clasps, or dental implants. The fit and look of your denture will depend completely on what best suits your needs. The goal is to give you a set of teeth that is both natural looking and functional.
How We Create Your Dentures
The first step to getting dentures in Lincoln is to visit Dr. Chris, Dr. Claire, or Dr. Pauley so they can evaluate your teeth and mouth to see if dentures would be the best solution for you. If they are, they will begin the process by taking several X-rays and scans of your mouth and jaw. This information will be used to create a series of wax models that you will try on in order to find the ideal look and feel.
Once you have decided on the fit and appearance that you like, this model will be used to help cast your actual dentures. Further adjustments can be made even after you have your final set. The entire process usually takes multiple visits over the course of a few weeks.
Using Your New Dentures
After you have initially gotten your denture, you will be advised to wear it for 24 hours a day so your soft tissue can begin to adapt to it. A small amount of denture adhesive may be necessary to secure it. Talking and eating will not feel natural at first, but they will after a few weeks of using the denture. You can dental office by reading out loud, and you should try to eat softer foods in the first few weeks to help this process go faster. It may feel uncomfortable initially, but eventually, it will feel like you’ve always had them. You can always come back for adjustments if you are feeling too much discomfort.
