What is a Denture?
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.
Types of Dentures
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
How Long Before I Get Used to My Dentures?
New dentures may feel awkward or uncomfortable for the first few weeks or even months. Eating and speaking with dentures might take a little practice. A bulky or loose feeling is not uncommon, while the muscles of your cheeks and tongue learn to hold your dentures in place. Excessive saliva flow, a feeling that the tongue does not have adequate room, and minor irritation or soreness are also not unusual. If you experience irritation, see your dentist.
What People Are Saying
Thank you so much for your wonderful and professional dental care. My last dentist retired and I was nervous about selecting my future dental care professionals. After selecting Tulip Dental, I feel compelled to send you a note to let you know how great my experience was. Keep up the great work!
I brought in both of my children (6 and 4), the staff was so friendly, patient, and accommodating!! They were in different rooms to which I floated back and forth to. Each time I went to check on them they were happy and doing what was asked. My kids talked about how much they loved their hygienists for days!!
The dental hygienist and dentist are both very friendly as well as very efficient. I get my teeth cleaned quickly but they do a thorough job and are not rushing to get me out the door and onto the next patient. They take the time to answer any questions as well as work to get me my desired appointment times.
