Dental Specialists Removable Dentures

Points to Ponder - Removable Dentures

  1. A full complement of teeth is necessary for both esthetic and functional harmony of your oral cavity. You will be able to maintain the health of your remaining teeth and gums by ensuring that all your missing teeth are replaced at the earliest. This ensures optimal load distribution during eating and ensures the long time health of your teeth and gums.
  2. The most ideal way to replace your missing teeth is with the help of fixed partial dentures or by implant supported crowns and bridges. However, when the fixed options are not feasible the only other alternative is to opt for Removable dentures.
  3. We use the best possible materials and the most advanced techniques to ensure that the removable dentures that you receive are of the highest possible standards. This involves at least three to five visits to our dental office.
  4. Once you receive the dentures from us, you go through an “Acclimatizing Phase” where in you would find the new dentures to be “odd” and “initially uncomfortable”. Every single patient goes through this initially but gets used and starts feeling normal and comfortable soon afterwards.
  5. The initial difficulties include
  6. Feeling of mouth being full or heavy
  7. Feeling of soreness
  8. Difficulty to chew food
  9. Feeling odd while speaking
  10. With patience and faith you will be able to overcome this initial phase and then enjoy the benefits of a full complement of teeth. You will be able to enjoy your food and will start smiling from your heart ! ! !
