What Are Dentures?
Dentures are fully-removable replacement teeth. At Alaska Center for Dentistry, we are pleased to offer both full dentures and partial dentures.
If all of your natural teeth have been removed - or if our doctors determine that they must all be removed - you could be a good candidate for full dentures. Full dentures hug the contour of your jaw, creating a seal against your gums for a personalized fit. They are removable and are built to replace your natural teeth.
If you aren’t missing all of your teeth, a partial denture can be used as an alternative to a bridge or multiple dental implants. Removable partial dentures clasp into place, supported by your existing teeth. In most cases, they are a more affordable alternative to dental implants.
How Do I Take Care Of My Dentures?
Just like your natural teeth, full and partial dentures require daily care in order to stay clean and keep dangerous bacteria at bay.
Begin by removing your dentures and rinsing your mouth after each meal. At the end of the day, brush your dentures thoroughly to eliminate plaque and tartar before soaking them overnight.
Be sure to alert our doctors about any changes in fit, or if you experience any pain or sensitivity when wearing your dentures. Usually, situations like this can be solved with a simple adjustment at our office.
