Dentures provide a restoration for multiple missing teeth. They greatly improve your dental aesthetic appearance and can also maintain facial muscles.
Removable partial dentures are a recommended choice of treatment when only a few of your teeth have been lost. They are almost the same as bridges except they do not have the permanent function. Full dentures are needed when many teeth have been lost and are applied after the gum tissue has had time to fully recover.
Immediate full dentures are required to make a quick and comprehensive replacement of your teeth. Dr. Kim will take measurements and place the dentures into your mouth. However, additional visits are required to ensure the results last for a long length of time due to the fact that the jaw bone may change shape during the healing process.
Dentures need will need some time to adjust to your mouth. They may be loose and may affect your eating and speaking. Over time, dentures will feel natural as they will adapt to your jaw movements. Committing to a healthy dental hygiene routine is still extremely important. Brush the teeth to eliminate any plaque and food particles and you can also place them in room-temperature water or denture solution fluids after removing them.
