Dentures are a removable dental prosthetic used to replace some or all of your natural teeth.
We use partial dentures when we only need to remove some of your teeth. Partials function similarly to a bridge but are removable.
When we first fit you for dentures, you may have to wear them all the time, including while sleeping. This will allow us to quickly find spots that we need to reshape because of discomfort or irritation. After the dentures are properly fitted to your jaw, you can remove them at night.
While dentures are not real teeth you will want to care for them as if they were. Brush your dentures to remove food particles before removing them. You will need to place your dentures in a container of warm water or a denture cleaning solution as soon as you remove them from your mouth. Hot water can warp dentures, so be careful!
It can take some time for your mouth to adjust to the shape of dentures. At first, it may feel awkward and bulky to have the appliances in your mouth, but over time, you will become accustomed to the dentures.
