Dentures Q & A
What is the Difference Between Full and Partial Dentures?
There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Depending on the condition of your oral health, your dentist at Georgetown Dental Spa may suggest either one or the other. With dentures, the full functionality and look of your mouth will be restored, boosting confidence, and the ability to perform certain functions with ease
Full dentures can be used when all teeth from either the top or bottom row of your mouth have been removed. There are a number of reasons why it’s appropriate to lose or have an experienced dentist pull out your remaining teeth, but dentures will act as a replacement for all of your teeth.
Partial dentures help fill in the gaps if you still have some teeth which don’t need to be taken out. By attaching to your existing teeth, this type of denture can act as an alternative to bridges. Both full and partial dentures can be easily removed, maximizing your comfort and eliminating potential inconveniences.
How Can I Take Care of My Dentures?
In order to enjoy your dentures for as long as possible, it is important that you take proper care of them. When you’re not wearing your dentures, be sure to soak them in an appropriate solution or room temperature water, so that they don’t dry out. Daily brushing is also important to rid your dentures of food particles and help prevent stains. The friendly staff at Georgetown Dental Spa can provide you with more, helpful information upon getting your dentures.
What Will My Oral Hygiene Regimen Look Like with Dentures?
Be sure to brush your gums with a soft brush to stimulate blood flow and reduce plaque build up. If your dentures chip or are damaged in any way, be sure to have your dentist at Georgetown Dental Spa take a look at them before wearing them to prevent injuring yourself as well as any further damage.
