Although dentures alone are not physiologically identical to your actual teeth, they are the next best alternative. The need for dentures can arise from a loss of your natural teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, and tooth decay. Let our skilled technicians bring back your smile with dentures to restore your missing teeth. With improved technology and updated materials, Pine Belt Dental can now make them appear more natural and more comfortable for the patient.
Replacing your missing or damaged teeth will benefit not only your appearance but your overall health. Using state-of-the-art technology and updated materials, dentures can now be custom designed to look natural and feel more comfortable.
It may take some time to adjust to your dentures. Speaking and eating may feel different at first, but these regular activities will resume normally once you are accustomed to your dentures.
You no longer have to wait days or weeks for your dentures. Pine Belt Dental, PLLC has an in-house denture lab that can provide the timely fabrication of your dentures and same-day denture repair in many situations.
Types of Dentures
Complete Dentures - Complete dentures are artificial, removable replacements for the natural teeth of the upper or lower jaw or both.
Upper dentures - Upper dentures are generally held in place by a vacuum created between your appliance and the palate of your mouth
Lower dentures - Lower dentures are horseshoe-shaped to accommodate the tongue and due to lack of suction, are often held in place by implants placed in the jaw for support
Partial Dentures - Partial dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth by attaching a metal framework to your natural teeth
Caring for your removable appliances:
Proper denture care is essential to the durability of your dentures and the overall health of your mouth.
Brush your dentures daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush
When not being worn, keep your dentures in denture solution and/or water (not hot) to prevent warping
Handle with care and keep out of the reach of children and pets
If your dentures become loose, chip, break or crack see your dentist right away
