What Are Dentures?
Dentures are natural-looking, removable replacement teeth. At Lisa Siddall, DDS, we offer both full dentures and partial dentures.
Full dentures are used when a patient’s natural teeth have all been removed. Once the gum tissue has healed, conventional full dentures are secured in place by hugging the contour of your jaw - creating a seal against your gums. They are removable for easy care and are adjusted to custom fit each patient.
If you aren’t missing all of your teeth, a partial denture can be used as an alternative to a bridge or multiple dental implants. These removable partials clasp into place, supported by your existing teeth. This type of denture is generally considered as a removable alternative to a dental bridge or dental implants.
How Do I Take Care Of My Dentures?
Dentures, just like natural teeth, require daily care in order to stay clean and keep dangerous bacteria from growing on them. It’s important to keep them clean in order to keep your smile healthy!
Just like your teeth, plaque and tartar can build up. It’s important to brush them daily and rinse them after each meal.
