03.pngThere are dental implant options available to aid in denture fit and stability. Dental implants can be placed in the bone underneath the denture to help stabilize the denture or they can be placed to total eliminate the need for a removable denture all together. Implants can be placed and used to support fixed bridges that do not get removed from the mouth at all. It is a wonderful alternative to removable dentures. Please call us at AGN Dental to discuss dental implant options.


Do you presently have ill fitting dentures? If so, please be aware that dentures need to be "relined" every few years to increase their stability and fit. Ill fitting dentures can cause you to lose bone more quickly than usual and can therefore cause your denture to become even looser and less stable. This instability can cause problems with eating and digesting food, problems with speech and a collapsed-looking facial appearance. 

Even though dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them like they are. You should brush them to remove plaque and food particles. After they have been removed, you should place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. Never use hot water because it could warp the dentures. Your dentures are delicate, so make sure you are careful when handling them so you don't drop them. Also, never try to adjust your dentures yourself. You could ruin them, so you should always seek assistance from your dentist if they feel uncomfortable or loose.

Dentures should be custom fitted to your mouth to avoid eating or speaking problems. The cosmetic dentistry professionals at AGN Dental Associates will create dentures designed just for your mouth!

  Types of Dentures: 
Conventional Full Dentures - This is when all the teeth are removed and the tissue is given time to heal before the dentures are placed. It could take a few months for the gum tissue to heal completely, and during this time you will be without teeth.
Immediate Full Dentures - Prior to having your teeth removed, the dentist takes measurements and has dentures fitted for your mouth. After removing the teeth, the dentures are immediately placed in your mouth. The benefit is that you do not have to spend any time without teeth. You will, however, need to have a follow up visit to refit your dentures because the jaw bone will slightly change shape as your mouth heels. The dentures will need to be relined(refitted)after the jaw bone has healed.
      Partial dentures- another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture   in your mouth.
Your dentures may take some time to get used to. The flesh colored base of the dentures is placed over your gums. Some people say that it feels bulky or that they don't have enough room for their tongue. Other times the dentures might feel loose. These feelings will affect the way you eat and talk for a little while. Over time, your mouth becomes trained to eat and speak with your dentures and they begin to feel more and more like your natural teeth. They may never feel perfectly comfortable, but it is much better than the alternative of not having teeth.
