Everyday activities like eating and speaking can be challenging when you don’t have all your teeth. Your confidence can take a hit, as well. Luckily, dentures can restore both the function and appearance of your smile. With modern dentistry, dentures are more comfortable and natural-looking than in the past. What types of dentures are available? Do they hurt?
Full & Partial Dentures
At Atlantic Dental Partners, we have a handful of denture options. If you’re missing all your teeth, full or complete dentures like Avadent® Two Visit Digital Dentures are a great choice. Concerned about your dentures slipping around or feeling loose? Implant-supported dentures give you the most comfortable smile since they don’t require adhesives. The implants, which are placed in your gums to replace natural tooth roots, stabilize the false teeth. If you’re missing multiple teeth but not an entire arch, partial dentures work well. We offer both fixed or removable partial dentures that restore your smile.
Do Dentures Hurt?
With today’s technology, dentures are more comfortable than ever. However, as you’re adjusting to new dentures, it’s common to experience some irritation. The muscles in your mouth need time to adjust. During the first few weeks, you might experience slurred speech, drooling, soreness, and so on. If the discomfort doesn’t improve with time, please contact us. We can take a look and determine if your dentures fit correctly.
Dentures can cause problems if they’re not cared for. Be sure to brush them daily to keep them free from bacteria. Always use cool water because hot water can warp the dentures. Even small changes in their shape can make your dentures uncomfortable or painful.
