Here at Center for Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry in Lawrenceville, Buford, and Dacula, GA, our dentists make maintaining your oral health and appearance their mission, which is why they offer denture treatment—read on to learn more.

More about Dentures

Dentures replace missing teeth, help with chewing, support facial structure, and improve speech. Dentures are a cost-effective and custom-made durable solution. At our offices in Lawrenceville, Buford, and Dacula, GA, our dentists ensure that dentures offer the right shape, color, and size for a natural look.

Caring for Dentures:

Taking care of your dentures is as vital as caring for your teeth, as it can prevent future decay and other dental issues from affecting your gums and remaining teeth. Make sure that you rinse your dentures daily, brush them with a soft-bristled toothbrush in order to remove food particles, and to use a non-abrasive cleanser to avoid scratching any of the surfaces. Additionally, you should always fully immerse your dentures in water when you are not wearing them in order to prevent warping.

If you use adhesive, regardless of whether it comes as a cream, powder, pad, wafer, strip, or liquid, read and follow instructions down to a T. Look for ADA-approved products to ensure that you are using a safe and effective product.

Finally, caring for dentures also involves a proper oral regimen. Brush your mouth thoroughly (that includes the gums, cheeks, and roof of your mouth) to reduce the risk of oral irritation and bad breath.

Dentures are among the most well known dental options for replacing missing or weak teeth. They are removable dental devices that could serve as a partial or full set of teeth in just one or several areas in the mouth. While traditional dentures rest directly on your gums and could be attached to real teeth, dental implant-supported types are placed on a durable foundation that’s fixed surgically into your jawbone.

With the many kinds of dentures available these days, you won’t need to feel embarrassed about how your smile looks and suffer through chewing difficulties. Here at the Center for Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry, you can consult with one of our Providers in our Buford, Dacula, or Lawrenceville, GA, locations to determine the most appropriate type of dentures for your case.

What are Full Dentures?

These are used to replace a full set of missing teeth. For replacing teeth in your upper jaw, you will need dentures with a skin tone acrylic base that will cover the roof of your mouth and gums to efficiently support a set of synthetic teeth. Full dentures for restoring teeth in your lower jaw are similar, but with a horseshoe-shaped acrylic base to ensure that the tongue won’t be covered and can more freely.

What are Partial Dentures?

When you’re looking to replace just a few missing teeth, partial dentures may be the way to go. These could be attached to your remaining real teeth in a couple of ways. It will be up to your dentist to decide which will best fit your needs during your appointment at our Lawrenceville, Dacula, or Buford, office. The most common method involves the use of metal clasps for gripping your real teeth. Your dentist may also recommend partial dentures that use precision attachments or dental crowns for attaching to your natural teeth.

What are Dental Implant-Supported Dentures?

As its name implies, these are attached to dental implants that are typically fitted in the jawbone’s front portion and can either be ball-retained or bar-retained. With bar-retained dentures, a thin metal bar will be attached to several dental implants with clips or similar attachment types securing the dentures to the bar. On the other hand, ball-retained dentures, likewise known as stud-attachment dentures, typically come with sockets that should fit snugly onto the implants’ ball-shaped connectors. In some cases, the connectors can fit into sockets directly within the dental implants.

Couple with DenturesFind out how this tooth replacement could give you your smile back.

If you are like millions of American adults out there who are missing several or all of your permanent teeth then you may be wondering what your treatment options are. No one wants to imagine going through life with large gaps in their smile and there is absolutely no reason you should. After all, our Lawrenceville, GA, dentists offer a variety of treatments to help you get your smile back. Today, you’re going to find out how dentures might be right for you.

What are dentures?

Dentures are an oral prosthetic that is designed to replace all or some of your missing teeth to improve your appearance and to fill gaps in your smile. Dentures are made up of a plastic base that resembles gum tissue. From this gum tissue sits a set of false teeth. Dentures may be held in place by clasps or by suction with natural gum tissue.

You can choose to get partial or full dentures, depending on the type of tooth loss you are dealing with. If you are dealing with total tooth loss then complete dentures will be the best option for getting a full smile back.

What are the benefits of getting dentures?

When you choose to get dentures from our Lawrenceville, GA, family dentist you will enjoy a variety of benefits including,

A restored smile

Anyone who is missing several or all of their teeth understands just how much their teeth do for them day in and day out. With tooth loss it can be challenging to bite, chew or even speak properly; fortunately, by getting dentures you can restore full function back into your smile.

Enjoy your favorite foods

It can be really challenging to eat a lot of your favorite foods when you are missing multiple teeth. Furthermore, those dealing with significant tooth loss often deal with nutritional deficiencies as a result. Imagine finally being able to eat a lot of your favorite foods again thanks to dentures. This can restore your love of mealtimes again but also improve your health, as well.

Boost your confidence

It’s amazing how much our smiles impact how confident we feel about our appearance. As you might already know, having gaps in your smile can make you more than a little self-conscious. You may even find that you never smile around friends or colleagues or that you cancel social engagements because of your smile. Dentures can give you the peace of mind that you need to feel more confident in the way you look.

We can help you determine the best solution for treating your tooth loss in Lawrenceville, GA.dentures

There are many reasons adults face tooth loss. Whether you got in a serious accident or you have advanced gum disease, the goal of our Lawrenceville, GA, dentists is to make sure that your smile gets the care and restorative treatment it needs to look its best again. Find out why some people turn to dentures to get their smiles back.

They are Inexpensive

This is one of the biggest reasons people choose to get dentures to replace their missing teeth. Dentures are the cheapest option for treating your tooth loss up front. We know that not everyone can afford dental implants but that doesn’t mean that they should have to just put up with missing teeth. Dentures offer many patients a new smile and a new lease on life without having to break the bank.

Get Your New Smile Fast

Many people have already dealt with gaps in their smile long enough and really don’t want to wait any longer to get their full smile back. We understand that all you might want is to feel confident again in your appearance. If this is the case, then there is no faster way to get the results you want than to turn to our Lawrenceville, GA, general dentist for dentures. Some dentures can be created and fitted in a matter of days (as compared to dental implants, which can take several months to complete).

Almost Anyone Can Get Them

As with any dental treatment, there are certain factors that can determine whether or not you are an ideal candidate. Of course, because getting dental implants requires surgery not everyone is right for this treatment. Luckily, just about anyone who is dealing with tooth loss can be a good candidate for dentures.

We know that while everyone may want to get a tooth replacement that is as close to natural teeth as possible, we also know that not everyone wants to undergo invasive procedures or even surgery. Unfortunately, in order to get dental implants, you will have to undergo two different surgical procedures. If this turns you off, then you may want to consider dentures, which do not require surgery or invasive dentistry. We will just take molds of your mouth and then have a dental lab create your very own custom-fitted dentures.

Do you have questions about getting dentures in Lawrenceville, GA? Are you ready to chat with us about your tooth replacement options? If so, then there has never been a better time to call Center for Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry.
