If you’re interested in achieving the top-notch smile and oral health you deserve with dentures, then our dentist, Dr. Derek M. Lichter, encourages you to find out all there is to know about the appliance so you can ensure that it’s the right treatment option for you. The more you know, the better! So, he is happy to teach you all about dentures by sharing some denture facts. Those facts are:

-There are two different denture options available. The first option is a complete denture, which replaces the entire arch of teeth. The second option is a partial denture, which replaces one or more missing teeth in a row.

-The complete dentures fit in the mouth by suctioning to the palate. The partial dentures fit in the mouth by clasping to the teeth on both sides of the gap.

-If you want a more secure hold with the appliance, you can use denture adhesive. This product helps prevent the appliance from slipping or sliding.

-It’s important to clean your denture regularly. Talk to your dentist about instructions on how to do so.

-When you first get your dentures, they might feel a bit awkward. But don’t worry! You will get used to them with time.
