Having several missing teeth can interfere with your ability to chew food properly and can cause speech issues that lead to communication problems. Donoho Dental Associates offers full or partial removable dentures in Sun City to help you regain eating and speaking abilities as well as dramatically improve your smile.
Missing teeth create empty sockets attractive to oral bacteria responsible for gingivitis and periodontitis. Replacing missing teeth with partial or full dentures in Sun City helps preserve the health and appearance of your teeth and gums.
The dentures Dr. Donoho can create rely on state-of-the-art technology that custom designs full or partial dentures using durable acrylic resins. This superior denture material also enhances your denture’s mechanical properties and makes wearing dentures more comfortable. Modern denture materials are also resistant to chipping and fracturing.
Dentures can be immediate or conventional, depending on your needs. If you need to undergo teeth extractions before receiving dentures, Dr. Donoho will begin creating your dentures well in advance of an extraction procedure. Many of our patients receiving a full set of dentures in Sun City have a few teeth left that are decayed or are no longer useful.
Custom dentures can be worn after your gums have healed following extractions or other dental treatments necessary for the implementation of dentures. Although you may not have teeth for a short time, your gums need to completely heal to avoid having loose or ill-fitting dentures due to tissue and bone shrinkage.
As your gums heal following an extraction procedure, your mouth’s shape changes due to scar tissue formation. Your gums also need time to stabilize enough to provide adequate support for dentures worn at least 16 hours each day. Wearing dentures before your gums have healed may produce sores that make using dentures highly uncomfortable.
When two, three or four teeth are missing but the remaining teeth are healthy, your partial dentures dentist in Sun City may recommend partial dentures to replace the missing teeth. “Partials” are removable like full dentures and consist of natural looking teeth attached to a plastic base shaded to match gum color. Supported by a metallic framework, partial dentures slide into the gap where teeth once existed and hook onto adjoining teeth to remain in place until voluntarily removed.
Although modern dentures contain compounded materials resilient and resistant to damage or staining, damage can occur if dentures are misplaced or dropped. Dr. Donoho offers denture reline in Sun City to ensure your dentures continue functioning just like real teeth. Although pharmacies carry denture repair kits, we recommend having misaligned dentures examined and repaired by your partial dentures dentist in Sun City.
In addition to full and partial removable dentures, Donoho Dental Associates also offers implant supported dentures in Sun City for people who have implants but need dentures as well.
