Discover just how dentures could give you a more youthful and confident smile.

Total tooth loss can feel defeating, but it doesn’t have to. Find out how your Atlanta dentist Dr. Travon Halt can easily give you your smile back with dentures.

What are dentures?Denture

This removable dental prosthesis is used to replace missing permanent teeth to help patients regain a full smile. There are many reasons for tooth loss, including traumatic injury, gum disease or dental decay. But replacing all of your teeth with dentures is an easy way to restore your oral health.

Are there different types of dentures?

There are three different kinds of dentures:

  • Immediate: These dentures are placed in one dental visit. If you need to have any teeth extracted, these dentures will also be fitted the same day as your extraction. While we will take impressions of your mouth prior to your tooth extraction, you won’t have to worry about waiting until your mouth fully heals to get dentures.
  • Conventional: After extracting any teeth that must be removed, we will wait until your mouth heals to place your full dentures. It can take several months to begin wearing your conventional dentures, depending on how quickly your mouth heals.
  • Overdentures: If you still have some healthy teeth, we will use them to support your dentures. Your dentures will then be fitted over the natural teeth.

If you are unsure which type of dentures is right for you, then it’s time to talk to your Atlanta dentist to find out more.

What should I know about wearing dentures?

Dentures should be treated just like natural teeth, which means you should brush them every day. Also, be sure to rinse your dentures after eating to remove food and other debris. Opt for soft-bristled toothbrushes and non-abrasive cleaners. If you are unsure which products to use on your dentures ask your Atlanta dentist.

When you aren’t wearing your dentures be sure to place them in water so they don’t dry out and warp. At the end of each evening, take out your dentures and place them in a denture-soaking solution. Before placing dentures back in each morning, be sure to rinse them thoroughly first.
