Dentures are a great solution for those who are missing all or a portion of their teeth. Dentures are available in two types: partial and complete. For those who are only missing a select area of teeth, partial dentures may be recommended depending on your case. Fixed partial dentures are similar to a dental bridge and offer a permanent, non-removable solution to dentures. If you are missing most or all of your upper or lower teeth, then you may be recommended for a set of complete dentures.
There are two types of complete dentures offered: conventional and immediate. In order to be fitted for Henderson dentures, you must have any remaining teeth carefully pulled before receiving your dentures. Immediate dentures can be placed immediately following the removal of any teeth, whereas conventional dentures require up to roughly 12 weeks time before they can be placed. This is required in order to allow for the surrounding bone and tissue to heal.
A small concern regarding immediate dentures is that they often require more adjustment and fitting than conventional due to gum and bone shrinking during the healing process. Immediate dentures serve as a great temporary solution while a conventional set is made. Talk to your Las Vegas family dentist regarding what solution would work best for your mouth.
As with anything, you will have to get used to the new feel dentures provide. Your tongue and cheek muscles may take some time in adjusting to your dentures. It is very common to experience soreness or irritation with your dentures at first. This is your body’s natural way of responding to your new teeth.
Typically, the hardest thing for new patients of dentures is eating and figuring out what they can tolerate. It is always advised to start out eating soft foods as you work your way up towards harder foods in a slow, but gradual process until you feel comfortable. Your Las Vegas dentist will instruct you on when you should wear your dentures, and instances in which you should remove them.
