At Edmonton smiles, we understand the importance of a beautiful smile. Dr. Molly Rodgers, our chief dentist examines the dental health of every patient. It is only after a thorough analysis that we recommend you conventional, immediate or partial dentures. Conventional dentures are placed in your mouth only after all the teeth have been removed and the gums have healed. It takes around 8-12 weeks for the gums to heal completely. But, immediate dentures can be placed right after tooth removal.
New dentures tend to feel slightly odd for the first few days, but with time they tend to feel like your natural teeth. The muscles of your teeth and tongue get used to holding your dentures in place and you are able to eat and speak with absolute ease. A proper dental care routine and regular dental visits also ensure your dentures last for a long time.
For older people, getting complete dentures can have tremendous positive effects. Replacing declining teeth with dentures can be an effective way to alleviate pain, eradicate root infections, and have a good dental health.
While dentures are the best choice for ensuring a beautiful smile, we try our best to preserve your natural teeth. Dentures are only prescribed as a last resort. We go through a step-by-step process with the patients to create dentures.
We first assess your condition and recommend the type of replacements required. The next step is to build a comprehensive picture of your mouth. To ensure the dentures fit you perfectly, our dentists take different measurements and calibrations. The process might require a little extra time, but when the final dentures are placed in your mouth, you’ll know the wait was worth it.
Taking care of dentures is relatively easy. You can wear them all day long and then place them in a glass of cold water. This practice will keep your dentures clean. Our dentists will assist you in time to time maintenance of your dentures.
