Am I a good candidate for immediate dentures?
If you’ve lost your teeth as a result of illness, decay, or injury, and need full dentures, you may be a good candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures can be placed quickly, meaning you don’t have to live without teeth for any period.
One thing to consider, however, is that immediate dentures need to be regularly relined. Relining helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and the transition to dentures.
What are partial dentures?
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. The most common type of partials has a cast metal frame. If you’re a well-suited candidate, The metal framework provides strong support and helps with chewing when you are missing back teeth. No dental adhesives are required. The metal frame anchors to existing natural teeth to keep the dentures in place.
A more cost-effective alternative is acrylic partial dentures. They tend to be cheaper than partials with metal frames, but they also need to be replaced more often. Acrylic partials are usually a short-term solution that’s worn while the dentist makes permanent bridges or partials.
Do you repair dentures?
At Sheldon Park Dental, our licensed denturists can repair custom dentures in a matter of hours, sometimes while you wait, depending on the type of repair needed. They can repair your existing or custom set of dentures on-site.
