Dentures in Davidson, NC
When it comes to dentures, many of our patients often recall their grandparent’s dentures magnified in a glass of water. This memory got stuck and became a taboo that prevented them from considering dentures as a viable teeth-replacement solution.
Dastrup Dental hopes to change this denture stigma. We believe that dentures are not something to be shy about and they provide a lot of benefits, both in health and aesthetics. It is estimated that about 90% of 40 million Americans who have missing teeth chose dentures to restore their smile.
Dentures are the fastest and most affordable teeth replacement solution to restore your joy in eating, smiling, and talking with confidence!
Dentures, or removable false teeth, are an excellent smile solution with an easy procedure and quick recovery time. At Dastrup Dental, our dentist will evaluate your smile, and begin by getting an impression of your teeth. If needed, any damaged teeth will be removed.
Thanks to advancements in dentistry, dentures today are more realistic, natural-looking, and designed for your needs. We design them based on our patient’s features so they will blend naturally with their face.
Our Dastrup team prioritizes the comfort and function of the dentures we make for our patients. Aside from restoring your ability to smile, they also:
- Play a big role in maintaining your overall health
- Keep your facial structure intact
- Help you bid goodbye to your soft diet and say hello to the healthy foods you’ve been missing
Depending on the type of dentures you qualify for, you may require a temporary set of dentures. While it’s common to experience some initial discomfort, you should be eating, talking, and well adjusted in only a few weeks.
Full dentures consist of a pink resin base, designed to look like gums, and natural-looking denture teeth. Dr. Dastrup has extensive experience in creating dentures that help our patients have another chance to look and feel great.
Today’s advanced denture teeth come with many shade options that will match the patient’s age, hair color, facial structure, and gender. All of these factors are essential in the denture design that we suggest to them.
Denture shifts and slip-offs are the biggest complaints about full dentures that often cause embarrassment for our patients. The fit of dentures goes beyond the physical appearance and also focuses on how the jaw and bite function together. That’s why we make sure that we get the right fit so our patients can avoid such unpleasant situations.
When you still have healthy natural teeth, Dr. Dastrup can use them to anchor a partial denture to fill the gap in your smile. In the case of partial dentures, we strive to match their appearance to your natural teeth so that your smile blends aesthetically with your face.
- Partial denture options include:
- Base – lightweight pink resin
- Durable metal
- Flexible bases
Dr. Dastrup and our dental team will discuss these options with you during your appointment. We will help you decide which type will give you the best results based on your preference, oral health status, and lifestyle.
Bone structure and the shape of the mouth of our patients determine if the dentures will stay in place and not cause any sores. However, bone loss eventually takes place after we lose our natural teeth. To prevent the progression of bone loss, Dr. Dastrup introduces implant-retained dentures to our patients in Davidson, NC.
We can place two to six dental implants that will provide a foundation for your denture and keep it in place. Implant-retained dentures eliminate the embarrassment that comes along with denture shifts and slip-offs and helps our patients feel more secure and confident with their new set of ‘teeth’.
Taking care of your dentures is incredibly important, but also relatively simple. Some tips to care for dentures include:
- Rinsing your dentures off before brushing them.
- Use a toothbrush with soft bristle brushes, and utilize non-abrasive cleaners.
- When you’re not wearing your dentures, keep them in a place where they cannot be accidentally damaged.
- Thoroughly brush your teeth, including your gums, cheeks, tongue, and the roof of your mouth.
After taking time to adjust to wearing your new dentures, you should be able to eat almost anything! However, there may be some foods that will always be difficult to eat, so be aware when eating foods that are hard to chew or sticky in texture.
