Having missing teeth can affect daily life and cause dissatisfaction with your smile. A great smile is very achievable. Dentures have evolved into a mainstream solution to such a common problem in America.

With dentures you will be able to eat whatever you want and display the confidence you lacked with missing teeth. Our dentists at Lake Lanier Smiles have the knowledge and experience to make the best dentures suited for you.





Types of Dentures
Generally, dentures are made of plastic acrylic material and for partial dentures a metal based appliance can be used.

• Complete Denture: When the entire arch does not have any teeth, complete dentures will be made to sit firmly on the underlying edentulous soft tissue.

• Partial Denture: In cases when some teeth are missing, these dentures will use the teeth present to gain retention along with the underlying soft tissue. The partials come with clasps and wires that wrap around your remaining teeth to essentially hold the denture in place.

• Immediate Denture: When teeth need to be extracted that may be in anterior areas or in cases where tooth support is needed. Immediate dentures serve the purpose of being an intermediary denture, at the same appointment as the extractions. The final dentures will be given at a later appointment.

• Implant- supported dentures: These dentures will sit firmly onto previously placed dental implants.



Procedure of making a denture

• Photographs to visually determine the best approach in fabricating your dentures

• Impressions will be taken of both arches and molds will be made.
• The lab will make denture bases with plastic resin and/ or a metal framework.
• On the base, a “U” – shaped rims made of wax, on which the artificial teeth will be placed.
• The denture base with plastic rims are sent to the dentist to measure the correct position of your jaws. Your smile line, mid line, and canine line will be marked. At this appointment, the teeth color will be chosen.
• The lab will then place the teeth and process the dentures to make them smooth and ready for delivery.
• The final denture will appear pink as the gums and white as natural teeth.


Post-operative instructions

• Every night place the dentures in a cleaning solution or tablets in water that will remove the bacteria and foreign substances
• It is important to take the dentures out and store them in a container every night. The underlying areas of dentures are key breeding grounds for bacteria leading to dental and periodontal disease and bad breath.
• After eating, remove your dentures and rinse them under water.
• Brush your dentures once a day with dish or anti-bacterial soap
• Be sure to clean your tongue and gums to remove unnecessary bacteria with a damp towel, a soft bristled brush, or a tongue cleaner.
• The dentures will take a few days to adjust to so do not be alarmed of some awkwardness
• If any pain, irritation, or soreness occurs on the gums please see our office as we will help readjust the dentures at the trouble areas.
• Over some time, your arch will slowly begin to resorb, therefore the need to reline the dentures will be necessary. This process will make the dentures fit more snug and tightly.


Frequently asked questions about Dentures

Q. How can my teeth be lost?
Trauma
Severe gum disease
Large decay or cavities
Tooth extractions
Developmental anomalies

Q. What happens if I don’t wear dentures?

Without dentures, you will lose the basic functions necessary for daily life, such as loss of support for the cheeks, chewing and eating, and speaking. Furthermore, the jaw relationship can be thrown off if they do not articulate in the proper orientation, resulting in the jaw joint (TMJ) problems. Most of all the esthetics of your smile will be missing.

Q. How long do I wear my dentures?

Initially, they can be worn for a week or two in order to get used to a foreign appliance in your mouth. However, it is important to take your dentures out every night so your soft tissue and bone can rest and not constantly endure high occlusal pressure. With pressure of the denture the bone can start resorbing more than usual, resulting in frequent relining.

Q. Will I need adhesives for my dentures?

Not if your dentures are fitting snugly and tightly. However, if you feel that you need more security or if the dentures genuinely do not fit perfectly, then we can recommend the best choice for adhesives.

Q. Do I need to see the dentist after getting dentures?

Yes, it is highly advised that you come to our office for regular checkup visits. We will observe our teeth, gums, and dentures and their relationships. If any adjustments need to be made, we will do so. Relining is an integral part of assuring denture fit.
