At Institute Implant Dentistry, we are committed to helping our patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. We understand that missing teeth can greatly affect one’s quality of life, making it difficult to eat, speak and feel confident in social situations. That is why we offer high-quality dentures and partial teeth replacement options for our patients in Shelby Township, MI.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore the function and appearance of your smile. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and can be made to replace either all of your teeth (complete dentures) or just a few missing teeth (partial dentures).

Types of Dentures

There are two main types of dentures: conventional and immediate.

  • Conventional dentures are made after your teeth have been removed, and the gum tissue has healed. This healing process can take several months, during which time you will be without teeth. Once the gums have fully healed, you will be fitted for your custom-made dentures.
  • Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be placed immediately after your teeth have been removed. This eliminates the waiting period for healing, but they may require more adjustments as the gum and bone tissues shrink during the healing process.

At Institute Implant Dentistry, we will work with you to determine which type of denture is best suited for your needs and lifestyle.

What is Partial Teeth Replacement?

Partial teeth replacement, also known as a removable partial denture, is a type of denture that replaces one or more missing teeth. Unlike complete dentures, which replace all of your teeth, partial dentures are attached to your existing natural teeth with metal clasps or precision attachments.

Benefits of Partial Teeth Replacement

  • Prevents shifting of remaining teeth: When there is a gap in your smile due to missing teeth, the surrounding teeth may start to shift or move out of place. This can cause alignment issues and bite problems. Partial dentures help prevent this by filling in the gap and keeping your remaining teeth in their proper position.
  • Restores natural chewing function: Missing teeth can make it difficult to chew and eat certain foods, leading to poor nutrition and digestion. Partial dentures help restore your natural chewing function, allowing you to enjoy a wide variety of foods once again.
  • Improves speech and confidence: Missing teeth can also affect the way you speak, causing slurred or unclear speech. With partial dentures, you can improve your speech and regain your confidence in social situations.

Caring for Dentures and Partial Teeth Replacement

Proper care and maintenance of your dentures are essential for their longevity and your oral health. Here are some tips to help you care for your dentures:

  • Remove and rinse after eating: After each meal, remove your dentures and rinse them under running water to remove any food particles.
  • Brush daily: Brush your dentures daily with a soft-bristled brush and a mild denture cleaner. Avoid using regular toothpaste as it can be too abrasive and damage your dentures.
  • Soak overnight: Place your dentures in a denture cleaning solution or water overnight to keep them moist and prevent them from drying out.
  • Handle with care: Dentures are delicate, so make sure to handle them with care. Do not bend or force them into place, and always clean them over a soft surface to avoid breaking.
  • Regular check-ups: It is important to visit our office regularly for adjustments and maintenance of your dentures. This will ensure they continue to fit comfortably and function properly.
