Missing teeth have more of an impact on your life than you may think. From drop in confidence and embarrassment when smiling, to difficulty speaking or eating, gaps in your grin cause significant problems. Thankfully, dentures can help! Whether you’re missing a few teeth, or your entire smile, our custom-made prosthetics may be the perfect option. Virtually any adult with missing teeth and healthy gums are candidates for dentures. If you have gum disease, we will recommend treatment before replacing your teeth. 

Types of Dentures

We have various types of dentures based on your specific needs. That’s why it’s important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Parsons before committing to treatment. He will carefully examine your mouth and review your medical history before recommending one of the following options:

Partial Dentures

Are you missing just some of your teeth? Gaps can make it harder to brush and floss as well as eat and speak. However, our partial dentures can fill the spaces in your smile like missing pieces to a puzzle. The base is made of acrylic attached to artificial teeth. Our partial dentures are usually held in place my wires that keep them stable.

Full Dentures

If you’ve lost all or most of your teeth, a full denture will restore the look and feel of your smile. It’s made up of a gum-colored base attached to prosthetic teeth. Instead of using wires, full dentures are held in place with natural suction or denture adhesive – they rest on top of your gums.

Implant Dentures

Do you want the most permanent and stable option? Contact our dentist in Winfield to see if implant dentures are right for you. This solution combines the best of both worlds, firmly securing your denture with dental implants that are surgically placed in the jaw. The result is a smile that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural one. Plus, dental implants stimulate the jawbone to keep it healthy and strong!

Denture FAQs

Can I Sleep with My Dentures?

We recommend that you take your dentures out each night to soak in an antibacterial solution each night. Wearing your dentures each day can irritate and restrict the circulation in your gums, leading to sores and bone tissue reabsorption. The space under your dentures may also start to accumulate bacteria if you never take them off.

Removing your dentures while you sleep provides you with an excellent opportunity to keep them clean and to give your gums an opportunity to breathe.

Will Dentures Change the Shape of My Face?

If you’ve been missing teeth for a while, you might have noticed that your cheeks look more sunken than they used to. This is because your teeth support your face, and without them, you could wind up with an older appearance.

Well-fitting dentures can address this issue. This is why it’s important to make sure that your prosthetic fits your mouth well—if it doesn’t, you could be missing out on some of the primary benefits of having dentures.

Do Upper Dentures Always Cover the Palate?

While the tongue has some of the highest concentrations of taste buds in the mouth, that’s not the only part of your anatomy that’s important to detecting flavor. The palate of your mouth also plays a role in taste, so if your denture covers the roof of your mouth, you might find that food tastes a bit different than it should.

That’s why there are palateless dentures. These are upper dentures that, like lower dentures, lack any excess material that could cover the roof of your mouth. Talk to us about them if you’re curious, and we’ll let you know if they’re an option for you.

Can I Use Regular Toothpaste to Clean My Dentures?

We recommend that you brush and rinse your dentures daily in order to remove any plaque deposits. However, you shouldn’t use toothpaste to do this.

Toothpaste contains mild abrasives that make them perfect for scraping plaque off of the tooth. However, acrylic dentures are softer than your enamel, and these abrasives can leave scratches on your prosthetic. For this reason, you should use specialized denture cleaner and a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your prosthetic each day.
