Just like many dental treatments, there are lots of options! It is important to find the right denture solution for you. If you are missing teeth or if you are looking to better your smile, call Rightway Dental today to find the best option for you. Here are a few different types of dentures.
- Full Dentures: This type of denture replaces all of the teeth in your mouth. Before your mouth can be measured, all of your teeth must be taken out. After this, there may be a short waiting period for the jawbone to adjust. Once the jaw is set, Dr. Ruiz and her team will order the full denture. While the jaw is adjusting, don’t worry, you will have teeth! Dr. Ruiz and her team can make a temporary item for you, called immediate dentures. We talk about these more below.
- Partial Dentures: If you only have a few teeth that are missing, Dr. Ruiz may opt to use a partial denture instead of a bridge or dental implant. A partial denture is attached to existing teeth with rings or crowns that fit over your teeth.
- Immediate Full Denture: As mentioned above, this is not a long-term option, but it is used to replace the missing teeth. While your jaw and tissue heals from, your immediate dentures may become misaligned as the jawbone adjusts. This is normal. To refit the dentures, visit Dr. Ruiz and her team at Rightway Dental.
If you are looking to better part or all of your smile, dentures may be right for you. For more information read our best ever blogs on dental health or to plan your next visit at Rightway Dental, call us at (232)-281-1801, today!
