Dentures Q&A

What are dentures?

Dentures are artificial teeth that replace missing permanent teeth, improve the appearance of your smile, make chewing easier, and improve your ability to speak clearly. Dentures can also improve your self-confidence. The Ideal Dental of Tucson team offers a wide variety of custom-fit dentures tailored to your unique needs.

What are the different types of dentures?

Different types of dentures available at Ideal Dental of Tucson include:

  • Full dentures: artificial teeth that replace all of your natural teeth
  • Partial dentures: artificial teeth that replace some permanent teeth
  • Removable dentures: dentures you can remove from your mouth
  • Fixed dentures: artificial teeth that aren’t removable
  • Overdentures: dentures that fit over some remaining natural teeth
  • Implant-supported dentures: dentures supported by dental implants

The best choice for you depends on the severity of your condition and your preferences. Dr. Williams tailors dentures treatments to fit your personalized needs.

Are dentures right for me?

To find out if dentures are right for you, Dr. Williams reviews your medical and dental history. He takes dental X-rays and examines your teeth and gums. He might recommend dentures or another cosmetic dental procedure – such as dental implants with individual crowns, porcelain veneers, or a dental bridge.

What should I expect when getting dentures?

Prior to dentures placement, you may require tooth extraction to remove natural teeth that are decaying or loose. After you heal from surgery, Dr. Williams can fit you for removable dentures or place dental implants in your jawbone to support implant-supported teeth. 

During a subsequent appointment, he digitally scans your teeth so a dental lab can create custom-fit dentures.

If you’re a candidate for immediate dentures Dr. Williams places dentures in your mouth right after extraction, but you require follow-up visits to refit dentures as your mouth heals. The benefit of immediate dentures is you don’t have to go without teeth during the healing process.

How should I care for my new dentures?

Care for your new dentures like they are your natural teeth. Brush them regularly to remove food particles and plaque. Place removable dentures in room-temperature water or a dentures cleaning solution when you’re not wearing them. Don’t chew on ice or other hard objects, and see Dr. Williams right away if your dentures become loose or damaged.

Don’t live with missing permanent teeth that make you self-conscious or prevent you from speaking and chewing properly. Schedule a dentures consultation with Ideal Dental of Tucson by phone or online today.
