Dentures Q & A

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dentures are one of the oldest dental technologies. Fortunately, because of advancements in tools and techniques over the years, modern dentures are much more comfortable and natural-looking than ever before. 

Dentures are highly beneficial because they can:

  • Support your facial muscles
  • Assist with your ability to chew and eat
  • Help you speak more clearly 

One of the most important benefits of dentures is the fact that they help boost your self-esteem. You’re probably going to find that you smile more confidently while wearing your new dentures. 

Which type of dentures do I need?

Greene Street Dental uses digital imaging technology to map out your bite, so your dentist can create an entirely unique, personalized set of dentures. Some types of dentures your dentist may recommend include:

Partial dentures

Partial dentures are removable appliances that replace your missing teeth. With this type of denture, you need a few surrounding teeth or implants to support it. 

Conventional dentures

Conventional, or “full,” dentures replace all of your missing teeth. Your dentist designs each arch of teeth based on your specific measurements and a bite analysis. 

Immediate dentures

Getting both partial and conventional dentures requires a series of appointments to examine your teeth (if any), evaluate your gums, make impressions, and, of course, design your new set of dentures. 

If you don’t want to wait, you may be a candidate for immediate dentures, which involves designing your dentures ahead of time. During your appointment, your dentist removes any remaining teeth and places your dentures in your mouth immediately. 

How do I maintain my dentures?

Greene Street Dental is dedicated to ensuring your dentures fit you comfortably. Your dedicated dentist counsels you about proper maintenance so your new dentures can last for years to come. 

To maintain your dentures and optimal oral health, it’s important to:

  • Continue scheduling twice-a-year checkups
  • Get your dentures adjusted as recommended
  • Clean your dentures by brushing and soaking
