Custom-Fitted Dentures The Restore Your Smile
Whether you’re missing just a few teeth or you have lost all of your natural teeth in Janesville, Dr. Brandon Dreier is here to help with custom-fitted partial and complete dentures. Learn more about dentures at Dreier Family Dental below, or by contacting us for an appointment.
Partial & Complete Dentures
We offer both partial and complete dentures at our office. Partial dentures are a good option if you are missing one or more teeth, but most of your remaining teeth are strong and healthy. They use a metal and plastic framework that supports several false teeth, which replace your missing teeth and restore the gaps in your smile. The denture is secured in place using metal clasps that attach to your healthy teeth.
Complete dentures are a bit different. They are built to replace all of your teeth, and all of your remaining teeth must be removed before you can get complete dentures. Complete dentures consist of an acrylic base that is designed to fit tightly over your gums, and a full set of upper and lower teeth that replace your natural teeth. They are a great option if you have lost most or all of your teeth due to dental trauma, gum disease, or tooth decay.
Why Choose Dentures?
Dentures allow you to restore your appearance and your bite after tooth loss. With a set of complete or partial dentures, you can eat and speak normally, smile proudly, and avoid common complications related to tooth loss, such as teeth shifting toward the area where your missing tooth used to be.
Dentures are typically the least expensive way to restore your smile, whether you’re missing only a single tooth or you’re missing most or all of your teeth. They are also usually covered by dental insurance, unlike some other restorative dental options like dental implants.
In addition, you can restore your teeth quickly with complete or partial dentures. It will only take a few weeks to build your denture and restore your smile. In contrast, some treatments like dental implants take up to 3-6 months or longer.
Caring For Dentures
Whether you have a set of complete dentures or you have partial dentures, you’ll need to follow some basic care tips to keep your new teeth healthy and clean, and prevent issues like gum inflammation and gum disease.
You should remove your dentures every time you eat, and rinse them with water to remove any food particles that would otherwise feed the bacteria in your mouth. Be careful when handling them. Dentures are delicate, and can break if dropped into a sink or on the floor. Do not use very hot water, only room temperature or warm water. Hot water could warp or damage your dentures.
Your dentures also need to be removed at night. When you remove your dentures, brush your gums (and teeth, for partial dentures) to remove food debris and plaque. Your dentures should also be brushed with a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean them.
Most dentures are not meant to be worn when you sleep, and need to be soaked overnight to maintain their shape. You can use water or a dentist-recommended denture-soaking solution to clean your dentures overnight. For more tips and information about denture care, consult with Dr. Brandon Dreier after you receive your dentures.
