Understanding Dentures

Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth. They help restore your ability to eat and speak more comfortably and improve your overall facial appearance by supporting the structure of your cheeks and lips. There are two main types of dentures:

  • Full Dentures: Used when all teeth in the upper or lower jaw need to be replaced. These rest on the gums covering the jawbones.
  • Partial Dentures: Used when one or more natural teeth remain. These are held in place by clasps around the existing teeth and can help prevent other teeth from shifting.

The Impact of Missing Teeth

Losing teeth can lead to significant oral health issues, including changes in bite, difficulty with eating and speaking, and a risk of adjacent teeth shifting. These changes can also lead to bone loss around the missing tooth area, altering your facial structure and appearance. Dentures not only help mitigate these issues but also restore the functionality and aesthetics of your teeth.

Customization and Comfort

At Butler Hill Dental, we tailor each set of dentures to the individual needs and preferences of our patients. Impressions of your mouth are taken to create dentures that fit comfortably and function effectively. Our dentures are crafted using high-quality materials that mimic the appearance of natural teeth and gums for a seamless look.

Benefits of Dentures

    • Improved Oral Function: Dentures enable easier chewing and clearer speech by replacing missing teeth.

    • Aesthetic Enhancement: With a full set of teeth, dentures enhance your smile and facial aesthetics.

    • Durability: Modern dentures are designed to be long-lasting and withstand the daily stresses of use with proper care.

    • Protect Oral Health: By filling the gaps left by missing teeth, dentures help prevent the shifting of remaining teeth and maintain jaw alignment.

The Process of Getting Dentures

  1. Initial Consultation: Discuss your dental history, current dental health, and specific needs with Dr. Cyrus Teymouri.
  2. Impressions and Measurements: Accurate molds of your mouth are created to ensure your dentures fit perfectly.
  3. Trial Fittings: Before finalizing the dentures, you’ll have trial fittings to make any necessary adjustments and ensure comfort and proper function.
  4. Final Adjustments and Delivery: Once your dentures are ready, they are finely adjusted and delivered. Dr. Teymouri will provide instructions on how to care for them and adapt to your new dentures.

Caring for Your Dentures

Maintaining your dentures is crucial for their longevity and your oral health. Regular cleaning, proper storage, and periodic check-ups at Butler Hill Dental are essential. It’s also important to continue practicing good oral hygiene with any remaining natural teeth and your gums.
