Partial dentures are another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth.
Your dentures may take some time to get used to. The flesh colored base of the dentures is placed over your gums. Some people say that it feels bulky, or that they don't have enough room for their tongue. Other times the dentures might feel loose.
These feelings will affect the way you eat and talk for a little while, but over time, your mouth becomes trained to eat and speak with your dentures and they begin to feel more and more like your natural teeth. Our doctors take the extra time and attention to detail that makes the difference in whether dentures fit properly and work well.
Even though dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them like they are. You should brush them to remove plaque and food particles before removing your dentures. After they have been removed you should place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. Never use hot water because it could warp the dentures. Your dentures are delicate, so make sure you are careful when handling them so you don't drop them. Also, never try to adjust your dentures yourself. You should always seek assistance from your dentist if they feel uncomfortable or loose. Patients with dentures should continue to see their dentist on a regular basis to have and oral cancer exam and to check the fit of the prosthesis
