Partial Dentures in Boynton Beach, FL 33426
Many people who find themselves lacking self-confidence when it comes to their smile have found that partial dentures are an easy solution, especially if they’re missing teeth and finding it difficult to pronounce certain words or eat certain foods.
The Solution Might Be Partial Dentures from Quantum Dental
Partial dentures are typically made with either a plastic base or metal framework that helps support the teeth that need to be replaced. It’s is held in place with clasps that adhere to your natural surrounding teeth.
Another Option Could Be Complete Dentures
Complete dentures are made of a plastic base and are custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth after your teeth have been removed and your gums begin to heal. This process typically takes 8-12 weeks between the time your teeth are removed and the time the conventional denture is ready for placement.
Understanding What to Expect Makes the Transition Easier
As with most things that are new, your dentures may feel unusual when you first start to wear them. They may feel loose for the first few weeks that you start to wear them until your cheek muscles and tongue adapt to them. You may also notice an increase in saliva flow for a few weeks, but these problems will disappear once you get used to wearing them.
Implants Might Be Another Option to Consider
In some instances, dental implants may be an option to support bridges which would then eliminate the need for a partial denture. Dental implants are more expensive, but because they most resemble your real teeth, they are an alternative that many Quantum Dental patients have opted for.
