What To Expect if You Need Dentures
Hey there Eugene! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of Eugene Family Dental. We’ve begun to hear Christmas music on the radio, so that must mean the holidays are here! Will you begin enjoying all of your favorite holiday treats or going on any holiday adventures this year? Although the holidays can be a lot of fun, they can also raise your stress and anxiety.
Many patients come to Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, because they we feel stressed about something regarding their oral health. One of the most common stressed relates to dentures. Patients are stressed because they’re missing teeth and embarrassed about it. Other patients are stressed because their dentures are causing them discomfort.
At Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, we want our patients never to have to feel stressed about their dentures. For that reason, we offer highly quality full dentures and partial dentures. We also offer implant-supported dentures if you never want to stress about the prospect of your dentures falling out ever again.
In today’s post, we’re going to tell you what to expect if you need dentures. Whether you need a new set of full dentures, new partial dentures, or have never had dentures, you’ll find the quality care you deserve at Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR.
If you need full dentures or partial dentures, we’ll begin by evaluating your oral health. If you’re in the market for a partial denture, we’ll need to make sure your remaining teeth are healthy. A partial denture is not very effective if you lose other teeth. If you have only a few teeth left and are considering a full denture, we can painlessly extract them to make room for your you new full dentures.
After evaluating your oral health, we take a detailed impression of your mouth. This ensures a quality and durable fit for your new dentures. Your dentures will be manufactured at a dental laboratory based off your dental impression. We offer full dentures made out of plastic composites – this durable material is incredibly lifelike. For partial dentures, plastic composites are molded to a metal frame which will secure the dentures in place.
After your dentures have been built, you’ll return to Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR for your fitting. We’ll make sure the dentures fit perfectly and provided you with detailed care instructions. With proper care, your dentures can last for a very long time.
While your dentures are being constructed, we can provide you with a temporary set of dentures. Your temporary dentures from Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, will ensure that you can still eat and talk while you’re awaiting your permanent dentures.
Traditional full dentures are set in place with suction and adhesive material. If you’d prefer a more stable solution for you dentures, we also offer implant-supported dentures at Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR. Implant-supported dentures are still removable, but snap in place to ensure your dentures never fall out of your mouth when you’re eating or speaking.
Implant-supported dentures require the placement of dental implants into your jawbone. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root composed of titanium. On top of the dental implant, we place special hardware which you attach your dentures to.
We offer not implant-retained dentures and implant-supported dentures at Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR. Implant-retained dentures have special sockets which fit in place over meal balls placed on your dental implants. You snap the dentures into place in the morning but remove them at night like normal. Never again will you have to use any dental adhesives or nasty tasting dental pastes!
Implant-supported dentures use similar technology to implant-retained dentures. Instead of a ball and socket system, a bar and clasp system is used to surgery your dental implants. We can even modify an existing pair of dentures to work as implant-supported dentures.
