Dentures give seniors the dental function that they need after tooth loss, and they are also becoming more popular with younger adults. A Survata survey estimates that as many as 53 percent of patients were under 44 years old when they first got dentures. Before you visit a South Atlanta, GA, dentist at Dentistry of Camp Creek, get familiar with some of the most frequently asked questions that patients have about denture devices (and the corresponding answers).

What Types of Dentures Are Available?
No matter your dental deficiency, a custom denture can be created for your smile. Complete dentures are meant to cover the gum line when there is total tooth loss along one or more arches. They are designed to suction to your existing gum line, giving you a set of false teeth that will be strong enough to tear, grind, and process solid foods. Complete dentures can be immediate (formed and fitted directly after extraction), or traditional. Partial dentures are for patients who still have some of their teeth remaining, but just want to close unattractive gaps.

Are Dentures Comfortable?
An important part of the denture making process is ensuring that you get a secure, long-wearing fit. You will go to a series of dentist appointments to test out your customized device and ensure that it will be comfortable to smile and eat with. By adding a few dental implants to your smile, your South Atlanta, GA,  dentist  can give you even more stability when wearing a denture device, The healed implants can be connected to the dentures so that they won’t move or shift.

How Long to Get Dentures?
Expect to wait several weeks to have your dentures in hand and ready to wear. Most of the time will be spent waiting for the dental technician to create your device after impressions are made. Be patient in this process, as it is designed to ensure that you get the best possible fit—a reliable tooth replacement device that you can wear for years into the future.
