Dentures are a great option for people missing teeth due to damage, injury, and decay. Professionally installed dentures can replace your missing teeth and restore your smile. They can also support your remaining teeth to keep them from shifting out of place.

Do you want to improve your smile’s appearance and improve your speech? Do you want to restore the ability to enjoy your favorite foods again? Dental Care of Rosewood can help. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Giochei and his team in Columbia, SC today.

Types of Dentures

The types of dentures we can install at Dental Care of Rosewood include:

Complete Dentures

Complete or full dentures are for people who have lost most or all of their permanent teeth. We attach the dentures to a plate on top of your gums and hold everything in place with denture adhesive. All parts of your dentures (including the support base) will blend into your surrounding oral tissue.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures are for people who still have some healthy permanent teeth. The dentures fit around the existing teeth with a metal framework that guarantees a sturdy foundation. Using partial dentures alongside healthy teeth will not negatively impact your speech. Instead, it will significantly improve your oral function.

Implant Supported Dentures

These are the most comfortable types of dentures. We attach the dentures to dental implants, negating the need for adhesive pastes and strips.

What To Expect During an Appointment

Once we determine that you’re a candidate for dentures, we’ll begin the process by preparing your oral cavity. Some of the things we do at this stage include the extraction of one or more teeth, thorough cleanup of your gums, and other procedures that will ensure your oral cavity is healthy enough to accept dentures.

With the mouth ready, we’ll take an impression of the entire cavity. The impressions will help us create dentures that will match the shape of your gum and remaining teeth. The denture construction period will take a few weeks. We can provide you with intermediate dentures until your next appointment.

When the dentures are ready, we’ll install them and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.

Living With Dentures

After receiving your dentures, you’ll likely have some areas of soreness. However, the soreness should clear in a few days. It may also take a while to get used to chewing and speaking while wearing dentures. You should get used to the feeling fairly quickly. The benefits of having dentures far outweigh these minor inconveniences.

How to Care for Your Dentures

The care routine for your dentures will come down to the type of dentures you have. We’ll provide detailed instructions you should follow as closely as possible.

Generally, you’ll need to clean your dentures with a soft-bristle brush twice a day. You’ll also need to soak them overnight in a cleaning solution. Avoiding bad habits like biting your fingernails and chewing ice can also help your dentures last longer.
