Best Candidates for Dentures
You may be a good candidate for removable dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you have natural teeth, these may either be extracted for a full denture or kept with a partial denture. At your initial consultation with Dr. Peterson, he will examine your oral health and explain your options based on your budget and needs.
What To Expect
If needed, Dr. Peterson will extract any remaining teeth before taking oral impressions, which will be used to customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be colored to match your natural teeth for a seamless finish. Once your custom dentures are created, Dr. Peterson will fit them so they are secure and comfortable. He will talk about how to care for your dentures.
It may require some time before your new dentures feel natural, but it should eventually be easier to eat and speak normally. If your dentures feel loose, return to James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to have your dentures refitted. At home, you will need to keep your dentures clean by brushing them twice daily. At night or whenever you remove your dentures, they should be soaked to prevent them from drying out. Continue to schedule cleanings and exams at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry so Dr. Peterson can examine the wear and fit of your restoration and the health of your jaw and gums. He will let you know if your dentures need to be repaired or replaced, but with ideal care, your dentures should last for several years.
