Dentures Q & A

by Rupa Govindarajan, DMD

What Are the Options for Replacing Lost Teeth?

The options for replacing lost teeth include dental implants, partial dentures, full dentures, and porcelain fixed bridges. Each option offers something different. Dental implants are good for replacing a single or group of lost teeth. Partial dentures and porcelain fixed bridges work for replacing multiple lost teeth. The difference between the two is you can remove the partial denture to clean it, but the porcelain bridge is fixed. Full dentures work to replace all of the teeth on the upper or lower jaw and sometimes to replace both sets of teeth. The best place to start this process is with an exam where you can have a more personalized answer to this question.

What Happens if I Get Dentures and They Don't Work?

Poor fit is something that can be corrected. Before you get dentures talk with Dr. G about your options. There are different types of dentures such as flexible dentures that offer different advantages. Because each patient is unique, Dr. G offers options for dentures so that you can avoid problems like your dentures not working. One of the benefits of working with Dr. G is she cares about the end result so that you are happy and comfortable with your new smile.

My Dentures Are Loose. Do I Need to Order New Ones?

Not necessarily, no. The first step in fixing loose dentures is to determine why they are loose. If your gums have shrunk, then you may need new dentures. Most of the time, simply having your dentures relined is enough to fix the problem. Like every tool, the more you use it, the more it wears. Dentures are no different. If your dentures are more than five years old and are not fitting properly, you can have them remolded. If your dentures are new and are causing sore spots in your mouth, they can be refit. Don't live in discomfort. There is a solution available.
