REASONS FOR DENTURES:
Complete denture: Loss of all teeth in an arch
Partial denture: Loss of several teeth in an arch
Enhancing smile and facial tissues
Improving chewing, speech and digestion
Dentures are very durable appliances and will last for many years but may have to be remade, repaired or readjusted due to normal wear.
Some of the options may include:
These are sometimes referred to by patients as "bridges". They are removable replacements used whenever the remaining teeth are sound enough to serve as supports for the missing teeth and to hold the denture securely. The framework may be made of either metal or resin or of a flexible material called Valplast. The best type for each individual will be determined by Dr. Zaidi following an exam and review of the x-rays of the supporting teeth.
An immediate denture is one where the teeth (usually the anterior but occasionally one or two posterior) remain in the mouth until the exact time that the denture is about to be inserted. Impressions are taken to determine the size and shape of the mouth. These measurements allow Dr. Zaidi and the lab technician to select the proper teeth that will be in the completed denture. There are many different teeth to choose from- material, shape , size and shade are all taken into account when a denture is being made for a patient. Many times the patient will get an opportunity to "see" the denture and indicate their thoughts and ideas as well. We ask patients to bring in any photos they may have to assist us in choosing the perfect tooth for their new denture.
The patient should be aware that following removal of the teeth, there is healing and shrinkage of the gingival tissue. The dentures usually become loose as a result of this change which has occurred in the mouth.
During this time, adhesive may be required for retention until approximately 6 months after the denture is inserted. At this time a reline is done to refit the denture to the new changes in the mouth.
IMPLANT RETAINED DENTURES
Are you frustrated with dentures that shift, cause discomfort and make eating difficult?
After many years of research, the dental profession has developed an implant system that fully integrates biologically with the jawbone. The implants are placed in approximately the position of the missing teeth, and then a removable denture is attached to the implants. Naturally, these dentures have excellent retention and so the wearer has the ability to chew in a completely normal fashion. Furthermore, implants have a bone-preserving effect.
Dr. Zaidi provides comprehensive treatment consultations, implant placement by our on staff periodontist , Dr. Stephen Traum, and natural looking dentures fabricated here in our facility.
It is normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness and possible speech and chewing difficulty at the beginning. This will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to the new dentures.
You will be given care instructions for your new dentures. Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new dentures.
