Many candidates for dentures are in a situation where their teeth are failing and may not be able to be saved. Unfortunately, many people with this condition may not know where to go or what to do. At our Mendham, NJ cosmetic dentist office we can perform an initial evaluation and if you’re determined to be a good candidate for dentures, we’ll take X-rays and build models to send to the lab. At Dentistry of Mendham, we use some of the best denture labs available, which is one more reason why our dentures turn out so good.
The turn-around time for your dentures to be constructed can take up to eight weeks including lab time. In the meantime, our cosmetic dentist will send you home with a set of immediate dentures so you’re not without teeth.
Types of Dentures
A denture is a dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. At our Mendham, NJ dental practice we work with the best denture labs to construct your dentures so they resemble your natural teeth and enhance your smile. We work with removable dentures, full or partial, and implant supported dentures.
There are two types of dentures: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are missing, whereas partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it can prevent remaining teeth from shifting.
A complete denture may be either conventional or immediate. A set of conventional dentures is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed so the patient doesn’t have to go without teeth during the healing process.
Dentures are a very durable appliance and will last for many years, although some must be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.
Reasons to Consider Dentures
• Complete Denture – All teeth in an arch are lost.
• Partial Denture – Several teeth in an arch are lost.
• Dentures enhance your smile and facial tissues.
• Dentures improve chewing, speech, and digestion.
