Dentures: Restoring Your Smile and Confidence

Dentures are a versatile and time-tested dental solution that can help you regain a beautiful, functional smile after experiencing tooth loss. They are custom-made dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissues. At Mr. Dentist, we offer a range of denture options to meet your unique needs and preferences.

Complete Dentures: Complete dentures are used when all of your natural teeth are missing. These are further classified into two types: Conventional Dentures: These are placed after all remaining teeth are removed, and the gums have healed. This process may take a few months. Immediate Dentures: These are inserted immediately after tooth extraction, so you won't have to be without teeth during the healing process.

Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are an excellent choice if you have some remaining natural teeth. They are designed to fill the gaps created by missing teeth and can be removable or secured with dental implants.

Implant-Supported Dentures: For added stability and a more natural feel, implant-supported dentures use dental implants to anchor the denture securely in place. This option enhances your ability to chew and speak comfortably.

What to expect during your visit at Mr. Dentist:

  1. Consultation and Evaluation: The journey to getting dentures starts with a consultation with Dr. Plonski. During this initial appointment, Dr. Plonski will evaluate your oral health and discuss your options for dentures. He will consider factors such as your oral health, the condition of your existing teeth, and your preferences for the type of dentures (full or partial).
  2. Impressions and Measurements: If dentures are the recommended solution, Dr. Plonski will take impressions of your mouth to create custom dentures that fit comfortably and securely. This involves using dental putty or digital scanners to capture precise measurements of your mouth.
  3. Tooth Extraction (if necessary): In some cases, tooth extraction may be required, especially if you are getting full dentures. Dr. Plonski will remove any remaining teeth that cannot be preserved, as well as any unhealthy tissue.
  4. Temporary Dentures (if needed): If you've had teeth extracted, you might receive temporary dentures to wear during the healing period. These temporary dentures help with eating and speaking while your gums heal.
  5. Fitting and Adjustments: Once your custom dentures are ready, you will return to Mr. Dentist for fitting. Dr. Plonski will ensure that the dentures fit well and make any necessary adjustments for comfort and functionality.
  6. Learning to Use Dentures: Wearing dentures is an adjustment. You'll need some time to adapt to speaking and eating with your new teeth. Dr. Plonski will provide guidance on how to care for and maintain your dentures.
  7. Follow-Up Appointments: You will have follow-up appointments with Dr. Plonski to assess the fit and comfort of your dentures. Adjustments may be necessary as your gums and mouth adjust to the new appliance.
  8. Maintenance: Dentures require proper care to ensure their longevity and your oral health. Regular cleaning, including removal of dentures at night, is essential. Dr. Plonski will advise you on the best practices for cleaning and maintaining your dentures.
  9. Possible Relining or Replacement: Over time, your mouth's shape can change, which may affect the fit of your dentures. Periodically, you may need relining or replacement to ensure your dentures continue to fit properly and comfortably.
