Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable oral appliances that replace missing teeth. Made from durable plastic resin and porcelain, dentures look and feel like your natural teeth.

Due to advances in dental technology, dentists custom-fit dentures, making it possible for you to eat foods with confidence and speak articulately.

Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry makes complete and partial dentures:

Complete dentures

Complete dentures replace all the teeth and include conventional and immediate dentures. Traditional dentures are fully removable oral appliances made after removing your teeth.

 

Immediate dentures are complete dentures your dentist makes before removing your teeth, so you get them the same day they remove your teeth.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures are removable oral appliances that replace some of your missing teeth. 

Am I a candidate for dentures?

The Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry team may consider you a candidate for dentures if you have tooth loss and need an affordable prosthetic solution.

 

Dentures can restore most of your normal oral function and create a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

What should I expect when getting fit for dentures?

The team at Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry takes an individualized approach to care. When you arrive for a denture consultation, they conduct a comprehensive oral exam to determine the best treatment to meet your needs and goals.

 

Your dentist removes any decayed or damaged teeth from your mouth when getting fitted for dentures. Then, they take a mold of your gums, as well as the roof of your mouth. 

 

They send the mold to the dental lab, where they make your dentures. When your dentures are ready, the team has you return to the office for your fitting.

What do I need to do to keep my dentures clean?

The Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry team gives you specific instructions on how to clean and care for your dentures at the time of your fitting. You need to brush your dentures daily. 

When you’re not wearing your dentures, keep them in a container filled with water to prevent them from warping.

The team schedules regular dental checkups to monitor your oral health.
