What are dentures?
Dentures are removable artificial teeth that last for approximately 5 to 10 years. Ventura dentures are removable so that you can properly clean and care for them and your mouth.
Types of Dentures
Depending on how many teeth you need to replace, you may have a couple of options for your dentures.
Complete dentures in Ventura replace all of your teeth; we usually recommend this option for patients who are missing a lot of teeth or have widespread oral health problems.
If you have any teeth remaining, we’ll remove those teeth before fitting you for dentures. After your tooth extractions, you’ll need to wait for 8 to 12 weeks for your gums and bones to heal before we can create your new dentures. In some cases, we can provide you with immediate provisional dentures that are delivered the same day your remaining teeth are removed. These will allow you to eat and smile while you are healing. Once your bone and gums have healed, we will make you your final set of dentures and your provisional dentures will become your backup set.
Partial dentures are ideal for patients who still have some healthy teeth that they want to keep. Your partial dentures will have artificial teeth that are connected to a plastic base (designed to mimic your gums) that’s attached to a metal frame. This frame clasps onto your existing teeth for stability.
What’s the process like for getting Dentures?
We use conventional and digital impressions and 3D printing to ensure that your dentures are a perfect fit for your mouth. You will have a series of appointments that allow us to custom fit your dentures to your mouth and gums so you can eat and speak comfortably.
What happens after you get dentures?
It’s normal for your mouth, cheek muscles, and tongue to be a little sore or irritated for a few weeks after you start wearing your dentures. You may produce more saliva than normal.
Your muscles and mouth tissues will eventually get used to your dentures. It is typical to need 1 to 3 follow-up visits for adjustments after you get your final dentures. After the initial break-in period, most patients find that dentures are a convenient solution for restoring their smile.
It’s also easy to care for your dentures. Take them out after each meal so you can rinse your mouth and rinse your dentures to remove any food debris. Clean your dentures daily with a soft-bristled brush and a mild dish soap or denture cleaner. Avoid using toothpaste on your denture because it is too abrasive and can damage your denture.
Never sleep with your dentures in. It is important that your gums and jaws have a chance to rest while your dentures are out overnight. Leaving your dentures in overnight can change your saliva, resulting in dry mouth and a higher risk of getting a fungal or yeast infection in your mouth.
As the shape of your gums and bone change over time, dentures require periodic adjustments and relines to reshape the inside of the denture to better fit your jaws. If you notice that your dentures are loose, causing sore spots, or are getting food trapped underneath them when you eat, an adjustment or reline can get them fitting well again in just one or two visits.
What are the benefits of dentures?
Dentures in Ventura have multiple advantages for patients who need to replace some or all of their teeth:
Dentures improve your facial appearance
You’ll notice that your face looks firmer and more youthful when you’re wearing your dentures. Your smile will also appear natural, boosting your self-esteem.
Dentures are a cost-effective solution for tooth restoration
Dentures are one of the most affordable options for replacing missing teeth. Many dental insurance plans will even help you pay for your Ventura dentures.
Dentures expand your dietary options
If your tooth loss has limited the foods you can comfortably eat, dentures will make it easier for you to bite and chew a wider variety of foods. Start with foods that are relatively soft and easy to eat at first; then expand your diet to include harder-to-chew foods once you’re used to your dentures.
Dentures in Ventura are a reliable option for replacing your missing teeth and improving your overall oral health. A set of dentures includes gums and artificial teeth that are designed to fit your mouth.
