Dentistry is all about smiles, and having a confident, healthy, beautiful smile is important even for patients wearing dentures. Here at Hi-Tech Family Dentistry, we provide personalized denture services that meet the needs and comfort levels of our patients. All of our patients are unique and we create one-of-a-kind dentures that feel good and look natural.
Complete dentures are used to replace an entire set of missing or severely damaged teeth, either on the upper or lower jaw. After the extraction, immediate dentures can be inserted in the patient’s mouth to await the final complete dentures. These traditional dentures are removable.
Partial dentures replace only a few teeth. The removable partial denture can be attached to the healthy adjoining teeth with a metal frame, natural-looking connectors or precision attachments. Crowns may be required on the natural teeth.
Implant-retained dentures are held in position by dental implants. Because they are secured by the implants, the dentures function better than conventional dentures and are more stable.
We’ll fabricate denture first. When you come for your teeth extraction, we extract teeth and you go home with denture in mouth with beautiful smile. You’ll wear these for the first several months after extraction. This way, you’ll have teeth while awaiting the arrival of your permanent dentures.
a). Essix retainers: Essix retainers are a type of orthodontic retention device used to protect the results of your braces or clear aligner treatment. They are a set of clear, removable plastic retainers, and you will wear them regularly following your treatment.
b). Flippers: Flippers, also known as Temporary Acrylic Partial Dentures, are great for anyone who is missing a few teeth and needs an inexpensive replacement.
You may find that your dentures are uncomfortable at beginning. As you get used to how they feel and as your mouth adjusts to the dentures, they should become more comfortable. If you still have some discomfort, contact us for further adjustments.
Clean the dentures thoroughly at night by using cold water, denture cleaner and a firm denture brush. Hot water may be harmful and NEVER use toothpaste as it is abrasive and will cause scratching of the denture materials.
It’s recommended that you avoid sleeping with your dentures at night and place them in a mild denture cleaning solution to help them retain their moisture.
We recommend replacing your dentures at a five-year interval or sooner if they are causing you difficulty. We also recommend you have them checked annually by your dentist.
We’re welcoming new patients. All of us and “Floss” can’t wait to meet you.
