What Are Dentures, and Why Choose Them?

Dentures are a type of removable dental appliance used to replace missing teeth. They not only improve the appearance of your teeth but also make eating and speaking easier for people with missing teeth. 

Patients can get partial or complete (full) dentures, depending on the condition of their teeth. Partial dentures replace one or a few missing teeth, while complete dentures replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw.

The Benefits of Dentures

ENSURE YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL BRIGHT SMILE

Dentures replace missing teeth that can ruin your smile, or promote the formation of facial wrinkles. Dentures ensure you have a beautiful bright smile to show the world, so you can be confident and thrive in social settings. They also ensure you pronounce your words perfectly so your speech is clear and coherent.

STOP BONE JAW LOSS

Missing teeth accelerate jaw bone loss which causes distortion of facial features and bite problems. Dentures mitigate and stop bone jaw loss so your face can retain its structure and you can eat your meals comfortably. Dentures are also easy to maintain since patients with dentures only need to keep their usual oral hygiene habits.

UNPARALLELED COMFORT

Dentures are among the most comfortable prosthetics since dentists create custom dentures to specifically fit your mouth. This comfort means you won’t experience any pain, scraping, or soreness while wearing these prosthetics. Most times you won’t even remember you have them on.

The Dentures Fitting Process

Consultation and Taking Impressions

The consultation involves getting information about your dental and medical history. It also involves a series of tests to determine whether you’re well-suited for the procedure. Your San Antonio dentist will also take impressions of your teeth and gums using a tray-filled tray with a putty-like material or a digital scanner.

Bite Registration and Try in

Dr. Jamie Knox will ask you to bite into a piece of impression plaster to register your bite. This determines how the upper jaw aligns with the lower jaw. If applicable, they’ll fit the dentures to correct jaw misalignment. She’ll then use the impressions and bite register to create a wax denture that she will fit into your mouth.

Adjustments

Dr. Jamie Knox will check how the wax dentures it on your mouth and make any necessary adjustments. The dentures must fit perfectly to prevent mouth strain and allow sufficient comfort and functioning. After the adjustments, she’ll ask you to wear the dentures one more time before moving to the final step.

It takes about 6 weeks to three months to create your new dentures. Once ready, we’ll schedule an appointment to fit your new dentures. Dr. Knox will ensure a proper fit before sending you home with instructions on how to care for your new dentures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you can eat normally with dentures, but it may take some time to get used to them. At first, it may be helpful to stick to soft foods and cut them into small pieces to make them easier to chew. You may also want to avoid sticky or hard foods that can dislodge the dentures.

As you get more comfortable with your dentures, you can gradually start to eat a wider variety of foods. It's important to chew slowly and evenly on both sides of your mouth to prevent the dentures from tipping or slipping. You may also want to use a denture adhesive to help hold the dentures in place while you eat.
