Patients in Burlington learn more about the denture process
Drs. Swati Khanna, Liliana Otrocol and Sam Gupta know their patients want strong healthy teeth as well as natural smiles. When dental problems occur such as tooth pain or loss, the team at Dentistry at LaSalle in Aldershot, Burlington are here to help. From routine dental care to customized dentures, they are available to meet all your full range of dental needs.
Aesthetically speaking as well as from a functional standpoint, dentures have come a long way. Patients now have options when they lose a tooth. Dentures have improved so much that now dentists can offer a range of options to suit patients’ needs and lifestyles. From partial and full standard dentures, flexible partials that snap into place, removable dentures that feel as comfortable as natural teeth, acrylic dentures, immediate dentures, and more, the options are almost endless.
Regardless of the denture type you select, the process is similar. Your dentist will take a mold of your teeth to ensure the correct fit and a natural look for your new dentures. Your dentist will make notes of color, size and shape of the teeth. Then, the teeth will be extracted. Once the surrounding gums heal, you will be fitted for your dentures. The initial set may need to be adjusted until you get the right fit.
Although your new dentures may take a short time to get used to, they should feel comfortable. Chewing and talking should be natural. Follow your dentist’s advice on how to care for your dentures. If problems arise, contact your dentist right away.
