Am I a good candidate for immediate dentures?
Have you lost your teeth as a result of an illness, injury, or prolonged decay? Do you need full dentures? If so, immediate dentures might be the right choice for you. Immediate dentures offer you the benefit and convenience of never having to be without teeth.
One thing to consider, however, is that immediate dentures need to be regularly relined. Relining helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and the transition to dentures.
Are partial dentures a better choice for me?
The most common type of partial dentures has a metal framework. Unlike full dentures, partials are meant to replace a few missing teeth, not all of your natural teeth. The rigid metal frame provides sturdy support for chewing, particularly when you're missing molars. Partial dentures with metal frames do not need dental adhesives to stay in place. They have clasps that securely anchor to existing teeth.
Acrylic partial dentures are another option. On the one hand, they tend to be cheaper than metal partials, but on the other hand, they don't last as long. They're often used as transitional dentures, a short-term solution for replacing front teeth while the dentist constructs permanent bridges or partial dentures.
What if I need denture repairs?
The licensed denturists at K Street Dental & Orthodontic Group offer a wide range of denture repairs in just a couple hours, or even while you wait. Denture repairs take place on-site.
