About Dental Dentures
Cardinal Park Family Dental Care in Leesburg is your go-to dental office for restorative dentistry treatments like dentures. It’s important to find a replacement option for your missing tooth/teeth to restore function to your mouth and speak with confidence. Our specialized dentist can help find the best restorative option for you. You have the choice between full or partial dentures, dental implants, and dental bridges. Dentures are ultimately the best solution for any patient in need of an entire jaw, or mouth of teeth.
After your consultation with the dentist, if you decide that dentures are the best restorative dentistry option for you, we can begin the simple procedure immediately. Before making your full set, all extractions in your mouth must be healed. If any other teeth need to be extracted, this should be done before your dentures are made. If your gums are completely healed, our specialist dentist will take impressions of your gums to send to the lab. In the meantime, you can wear a pair of temporary dentures offered by our office. The temporary dentures will allow you to get used to the feeling of wearing and eating with dentures. When your permanent pair arrives, your dentist will test that they fit well. With the latest in dental technology, they fit perfectly snug, so you will not need to worry about them falling out when eating or talking.
We also offer partials if you do not need an entire jaw of teeth replaced. Partials are great for sections of teeth that are missing and the patient is not able to have or afford a dental bridge or dental implants. They will allow you to eat comfortably as well as smile with confidence. They are made to look completely natural in shape and color, so you never need to worry about your teeth looking fake.
There are many benefits of this restorative dentistry treatment, including the ability to chew again. With today’s dentures, they fit perfectly to the shape of your gums. Although it may take practice to chew foods like steak and corn on the cob, our patients can expect to enjoy a full range of food. Next, if a patient has had missing teeth for a while, their speech could have developed a lisp, but with dentures, patients can expect to speak normally again. Another benefit is the restoration of confidence. They look completely natural to give our patients a new smile.
Having missing teeth many cause people to become self-conscious and dissatisfied with their overall appearance. At Cardinal Park Family Dental Care located in Leesburg, we provide dental services for restoring your missing teeth and misaligned dentures.
Our specialist dentists can help you to use your dentures in a completely normal way, while also making it cosmetically appealing so our patients can smile with confidence. We offer both full and partial types of dental implants, depending on your needs. Dentures also have the advantage that they do not pose the risk of causing nerve damage, which is one of the tooth implant problems. In most cases, dentures can conveniently replace any missing teeth and even the entire jaw, if needed.
How Do Dentures Work?
Dentures consist of a base that looks exactly like your natural gums. The prosthetic teeth rest on this gum-colored base, and these look and feel like real human teeth. Modern dentures are highly stable and can be placed with high precision, allowing for a perfect fit for every kind of patient.
After getting your dentures, it initially takes some time before the person can become used to them. However, by continued use during talking and eating, the dentures gradually begin to feel just like your natural set of teeth and you will feel entirely comfortable with them in a very short amount of time.
When are Dentures a Good Idea?
People should seriously consider getting dentures when their teeth are in a condition that creates constant discomfort and/or pain. In cases where a person has lost many of their natural teeth, or a person suffers from gum disease that has advanced to a point where it is difficult to control. If any of these problems apply in your case, then it is a good idea to consult with our specialist doctors at Cardinal Park Family Dental Care in Leesburg and discuss whether you may require dentures.
When Should Dentures be Replaced?
You should consider changing your dentures if you start experiencing problems using them while talking, chewing, and eating. There are several other signs that indicate that it perhaps may be the right time for you to replace your dentures. These include irritation and pain in dental tissues, loosening of the dentures, headaches, ear pain, or pain in the neck. If any of these indications are true in your case, it is advisable that you consult our specialist dentists so that it may be determined whether your dentures need replacement.
Why Keep Dentures in Water?
Whenever dentures are not in use, it is advisable to store them in water. If dentures are not kept moist, they may warp and dry out. However, it must be borne in mind that dentures should never be stored in hot water, as this can lead to warping of the denture.
