Denture Services At Our Orléans offices

Tenth Line Family Dentistry

Types of Dentures:

  • Complete Dentures: These are designed to replace all teeth in an entire arch when all teeth are missing. We craft them meticulously to resemble your natural teeth and ensure they fit comfortably and securely.
  • Partial Dentures: If you have some remaining natural teeth, partial dentures can be the perfect solution. They're customized with a metal framework and teeth that fit seamlessly into your mouth.

Benefits of Dentures:

  • Improved Appearance: Dentures can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth, enhancing your overall look and filling out the appearance of your face and profile.
  • Functional Replacement: Our dentures allow you to eat, speak, and swallow comfortably, restoring the functionality of your teeth.
  • Boosted Confidence: Regain your self-assurance and confidence with a complete and beautiful smile.

The Denture Fitting Process

Tenth Line Family Dentistry

We offer two main types of dentures:

  • Conventional Dentures: These are created and inserted after the extraction of any remaining teeth and after the tissues have healed. Although they take a bit more time, they ensure an excellent fit.
  • Immediate Dentures: If you don't want to be without teeth, immediate dentures are inserted right away after tooth removal. Your dentist will have taken measurements during a prior appointment. However, be aware that they may require some adjustments as your mouth heals.

Adapting to Your New Dentures

Adapting to your new dentures may take some time. Common changes you may experience include:

  • Dentures feel loose initially as your cheek and tongue muscles adapt.
  • Minor irritation or soreness.
  • A temporary increase in saliva flow.
  • Changes in speech can be corrected with practice.

Initially, it's recommended to stick to soft foods and liquids and avoid sticky, crusty, or hard foods. Cutting your food into smaller portions can also make the adjustment process easier. Over time, you'll be able to return to your normal diet comfortably.

Denture Care at our Orléans Clinic

Proper care is crucial for the longevity of your dentures:

  • Store them away from children and pets.
  • Brush daily to remove food particles and prevent staining and plaque buildup.
  • Use a brush designed for dentures and a denture cleaner (regular toothpaste may be too abrasive).
  • After cleaning, rinse and submerge in a denture-cleaning solution.
  • Never boil dentures, as it can cause warping.
  • Remove your dentures at night to let your gum tissue breathe.
  • Store dentures in water or a cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out.

Maintaining Your Smile

Regular follow-up appointments are essential after getting dentures. Your dentist can make necessary adjustments and ensure the tissue under the dentures remains healthy. Dentures typically need relining every five to seven years, a determination that your dentist will make. Many insurance companies cover a portion of the cost of denture relining, making it an affordable option.

Minor Repairs and Adjustments

For even the smallest adjustments to your dentures, it's best to consult your dentist. Attempting adjustments at home can damage your dentures and your health. If your dentures break, crack, or chip, see your dentist for professional repairs. Avoid using over-the-counter glues, as they may contain harmful chemicals.

At Tenth Line Family Dentistry, we are committed to providing you with top-quality dental care and ensuring your denture experience is comfortable, reliable, and visually appealing.
