What are Dentures?
You’ve probably already heard of dentures because they’re such a common restoration. They’ve been around for hundreds of years, and with all the latest advancements in the dental field, they look more realistic than ever. Whether you’re looking to replace multiple teeth or an entire arch, there are different types of dentures that offer special benefits.
If you’re missing all of your teeth, traditional full dentures are the choice for you. When you visit your dentist in Atlanta for a consultation, she will examine your mouth and take X-rays to ensure that there are no problems hidden under the surface. She’ll evaluate where your upper and lower jaw come together and choose a size and color for your replacement teeth. After taking impressions and sending them off to a dental lab to custom make them to her specifications, you’ll have your new restorations!
These dentures sit on top of your gums and consist of replacement teeth attached to a realistic-looking plastic base that’s molded to perfectly fit your mouth. Because they’re removable, you can easily clean and sanitize them each night while you’re asleep.
Partial dentures are typically recommended by our team if you’re looking to replace only a few teeth but still have your natural teeth. These restorations are placed on top of a pink-colored base that’s attached to a piece of metal so they can rest properly in your mouth. Because they’re removable, you can take them out whenever you need to. They also prevent your other teeth from shifting in order to fill the gap in your smile.
Dental implants are one of the most advanced restorative options out there. Whether you’re missing one tooth or multiple, this solution doesn’t just replace the visible portion of it, it also replaces the root. Through a process called osseointegration, where the titanium post naturally fuses with your jaw, this procedure can prevent jawbone deterioration.
These posts provide a stable, long-lasting, and durable foundation for your dentures to be placed on top of, so you don’t have to worry about them shifting or sliding. Also, because they’re permanently attached, you take care of them just like you would your natural teeth! Not only does this option offer the most benefits, but they’re also the closest restoration to your natural teeth.
Replacing your teeth can be overwhelming because you have to research so many possible solutions. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Gaylor, she can discuss what specific benefits each option has for your unique case. Don’t wait to get your teeth replaced, contact us today!
