Dentures In Saukville

What Are Dentures and When Do You Need Them?

Dentures are removable restorative dental appliances for replacing missing teeth on the jaws. They consist of a denture base made of acrylic resin and prosthetic teeth that sit on top of this acrylic base. Dentures are ideal for anyone who has lost any or all of their teeth. They restore not only your smile but also the functionality of your teeth.

Process of Getting Dentures

tooth icon

Initial Consultation

The dentist will first examine your teeth, take X-rays, and conduct a series of tests to determine your candidacy for dentures. They will also discuss your cosmetic goals and what to expect with these appliances.

Impressions and Measurements

The second step involves taking impressions of your oral cavity to fabricate your dentures. Dentists may either use a putty-like material to create a mold of your oral cavity or a digital scanner to create 3D renders of the same. The models or renders are sent to a lab to manufacture your dentures. In the meantime, the dentist might give your temporary dentures to wear.

Trial Fitting and Adjustments

After six weeks to three months, the dentist will schedule an appointment for you to try on your dentures. They will carefully insert the dentures in your mouth and check their fit and comfort. They’ll also make any necessary adjustments if needed.

Final Fitting and Post-Treatment care

The dentist will finally place the adjusted dentures in your mouth and check how they fit. If they’re a perfect fit, they will give you instructions on how to care for your new appliances, including how to clean and when to wear them. They might also schedule follow-up appointments to check how you’re faring with your new dentures.

What We Offer

View our services

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are dentures for people with one or a few missing teeth on either jaw. These dentures consist of one or a set of false teeth attached to a metal or plastic base. These dentures are removable and very easy to maintain.

Complete Dentures

We also offer complete dentures for replacing an entire set of missing teeth on either jaw or both of them. They also consist of a base with prosthetic teeth attached to them. The dentures sit on top of the gum line, and patients can remove them at their convenience to clean them or while sleeping at night.

How Many Teeth Do I Need to Get Dentures?

Patients can get dentures with absolutely no teeth on either jaw. Moreover, patients with one, two, or several teeth can also get dentures to replace all their missing teeth.

What Are Dentures And How Can They Benefit Me?

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. If you've lost all or some of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay, or injury, dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit not only your appearance but also your health. Dentures can also help you eat and speak more comfortably, which are things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.

What Types Of Dentures Does Sauk Trail Dental Offer?

At Sauk Trail Dental, we offer two main types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Complete dentures have two forms: conventional complete dentures, which are placed in the mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed, and immediate complete dentures, which are inserted immediately after the removal of the remaining teeth. Partial dentures are not only designed to fill in the spaces created by missing teeth but also to prevent other teeth from changing position. Dr. Rachel Cook will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you, based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.

How Long Does It Take To Get Used To New Dentures?

New dentures may feel a little odd or loose for a few weeks until the muscles of your cheeks and tongue learn to keep them in place and you get comfortable inserting and removing them. Also, it's not unusual for minor irritation or soreness to occur and for saliva flow to increase when you first start wearing dentures, but these problems will diminish as your mouth adjusts to the new appliance. To get used to your dentures, start with soft foods cut into small pieces. Chew slowly using both sides of your mouth. As you get used to your dentures, add other foods until you return to your normal diet. Continue to chew food using both sides of the mouth at the same time. Be cautious with hot or hard foods and sharp-edged bones or shells. Also, avoid foods that are extremely sticky or hard.

How Do I Care For My Dentures?

Taking care of your dentures is essential to ensure they last long and remain comfortable. You should handle them carefully to avoid any damage, as they can be quite fragile. It's important to brush them daily with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive cleaner to remove food and plaque, just as you would with natural teeth. At night, dentures should be soaked in water or a mild soaking solution to maintain their shape. After meals, a quick rinse under water can help remove any remaining food particles. Be sure to avoid using stiff brushes, abrasive toothpaste, and bleach-containing products, which can harm denture materials. It's also beneficial to keep your mouth clean by brushing your gums, tongue, and palate before inserting your dentures in the morning. Regular dental checkups are vital to ensure your dentures fit properly and to address any oral health issues.
