Dentures

At Wesley Dental, we know that facing tooth loss is never easy. It is our job to put you at ease with our friendly and gentle approach to discussing your replacement tooth options.

Conventional or Full Dentures:

Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, it is very important that you replace your missing teeth as soon as possible. A complete set of dentures may be the best option for you. Dentures not only make it easier for you to eat and speak but they play an important role in maintaining your facial structure. When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag. Over time, missing teeth can drastically alter your facial appearance. Dentures can help prevent sagging and fill out the appearance of your face and profile. More then that, dentures can also help improve your smile and self-esteem. Our goal at Wesley Dental, is to get you back to your everyday routines as soon as possible with a smile on your face!

Why Choose Wesley Dental for your Denture Procedure?

Dr. Wesley has been formally trained in Prothodontics, the specialty of full-mouth restoration and correct oral function. Even though teeth are needed for daily function, Dr. Wesley is more concerned with the overall well being of each patient. Your age, bite and bone structure all play an important role when considering dentures. More than that, Dr. Wesley will want to know your goals and expectations. Dentures may seem like an obvious choice, but they do have their limitations. After a thorough exam and discussion, he will determine whether or not you are a good candidate for dentures.

When choosing Wesley Dental for your complete denture, you can expect to be serviced here, in the comfort of our office by our highly skilled team. Equipped with the latest advanced technology, our 3D Scanner and printer, allows for extremely precise digital scans and on-site custom designing and fabrication of models to help complete your custom denture. Implementing this method bypasses conventional, messy impressions and helps ensures a more exact fit when prepping your final denture restoration. We believe in a comprehensive approach to diagnosing, treatment planning, fabricating and maintaining the dental needs of each patient regardless of the eventual dental procedure performed.

Types of Dentures:

  • Conventional: This full removable denture is made and placed in your mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed. A full denture is held in place by bracing onto the existing gum tissue and jawbone structure that remains. The stability and hold of a full denture can be improved through the use of dental adhesive creams.
  • Immediate: This removable denture is inserted on the same day that the remaining teeth are removed. You don’t have to be without teeth during the healing period, but may need to have the denture relined or remade after your jaw has healed.
  • Over-denture: Sometimes some of your teeth can be saved to preserve your jawbone and provide stability and support for the denture. An over-denture fits over a small number of remaining natural teeth after Dr. Wesley has properly prepared them.
  • All-On-4 Implant Supported Dentures: At Wesley Dental, this procedure can be completed in one day.
  • An implant denture with individual teeth is designed and fabricated on-site and placed over 4 implants (per arch). All-on-4 is a permanent restoration and best resembles and functions like your own natural teeth. For more information on the All-on-4 Implant procedure you can click on the link or visit the Wesley Dental home page.
  • Care and maintenance of your new of Dentures:

Like your teeth, your dentures should be brushed daily to remove food particles and plaque. Brushing can also help keep your from staining.

  • Rinse your dentures before brushing to remove any loose food or debris.
  • Use a soft bristle toothbrush and a non-abrasive cleanser to gently brush all the surfaces of your dentures so they don’t get scratched.
  • When brushing, clean your mouth thoroughly—including your gums, cheeks, roof of your mouth and tongue to remove any plaque. This can help reduce the risk of oral irritation and bad breath.
  • When you’re not wearing your dentures, put them in a safe place covered in water to help keep them from warping.
  • Occasionally, denture wearers may use adhesives. Adhesives come in many forms: creams, powders, pads/wafers, strips or liquids. If you use one of these products, read the instructions, and use them exactly as directed. Dr. Wesley can help recommend appropriate cleansers and adhesives.

Follow-up appointments are generally needed after a denture is inserted so the fit can be checked and adjusted. It is important that a proper fit is maintained to prevent sores and irritation. Don’t hesitate to call Wesley Dental with any questions or concerns about your dentures.
