Many of our patients visit us looking for a solution to their missing teeth. If they are missing a good number of teeth or need to get them removed due to infection or a medical condition, we can offer them different types of dentures. There are two primary types of full dentures: immediate and conventional, as well as partial dentures if our patient does not have to get all of their teeth removed.
With conventional dentures, our patient gets their remaining teeth removed and they wait a few weeks or months for their gums to heal completely. Once they are healed, Dr. Michael Eisenbrock fits their new set of dentures. Immediate dentures, on the other hand, are fit as soon as their teeth are removed. Impressions are made of our patient’s teeth before they are pulled, and Dr. Eisenbrock has the dentures fabricated. Once the teeth are pulled, these dentures are placed over the gums.
Caring for your new dentures requires regular cleaning in order to remove the plaque, stains, and food particles. It’s important to brush the surfaces of the dentures similar to brushing your natural teeth. Also consider that your oral health still needs good care as well, including gentle brushing your gums, palate, and tongue each day.
