A very common restoration option for seniors, dentures are used for patients who have lost both upper and lower sets of teeth. These dental prosthetics have many benefits, including the improvement of your eating and speaking, as well as aesthetics. Losing teeth can lead your gums and jaw to deteriorate and your face to sag and appear older. With prosthetic teeth, the jawbones are supported and premature aging is prevented. To get dentures and partials, we will advise letting your gums and jawbone stabilize first after an extraction.
It may take weeks for the bones to fill in the socket of your missing teeth, and for the gum tissues to heal. We take an impression of your fully-healed gums, then create a model with this data to create your customized teeth prosthetics. Alongside a lab technician, your dentist will start molding the dentures in your mouth to ensure a perfect fit, which could take around four weeks and involve multiple dental visits.
Making the decision to get dentures
To have dentures made at our dental office in London Centre, we suggest booking an appointment first so we can assess your teeth, gums, and mouth. Our professionals will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for dentures. You will likely need to wear temporary ones while waiting for your permanent dentures to be ready, but this just means you can still leave our office with substitute teeth on the same day of your removal.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile and want to improve or restore it, our dentists will be happy to meet with you to discuss. Our team is ready to create a wonderful set of dentures or partials for you, if that is the option you decide on. Call or email us today to learn more and schedule a visit to Wortley Road Dental. We look forward to seeing you!
