Are you missing teeth and need partial dentures? Do you need to have a whole mouth of teeth pulled and replaced with full dentures? Finding Dentures in Ahwatukee AZ is as easy as a phone call to Imagine Dentistry. On your first visit, your dentist will take x-rays of your teeth to see how healthy your roots and gums are. He or she will have a full cleaning done and a general dental exam performed to check for cavities. If you just need a couple teeth pulled and the surrounding teeth are healthy, they can create partial dentures to replace the missing teeth. These dentures will be anchored to the health surrounding teeth and look like your own teeth. Dentures are made out of acrylic to mimic the look of your natural teeth. This process may take a couple visits to complete.
If you need a full set of dentures, your own teeth will be pulled by an oral surgeon and full plate dentures – also made out of acrylic to look like your natural teeth – will be made from casts of your mouth. You will have a bottom plate that just covers your gums and an upper plate that covers your gums and the full roof of your mouth. This allows for your cheeks not to be sunken in and provides the best stability for your new dentures.
Getting partial or full dentures protects your jaw from slackening and restores your face to its proper contours. Where it is often difficult to eat with missing teeth, replacing missing teeth with partial dentures cures that problem. You will be able to eat normally again without pain.
Over the years, your mouth shape changes but your dentures do not. You will need to come in to check the fit of the dentures every so often – especially if you notice that they are shifting in your mouth. Dentures should be firmly in your mouth without movement when you eat or swallow. You may need several sets of dentures over your lifetime. You will be able to find Dentures in Ahwatukee AZ from Imagine Dentistry over the life of your dentures. you can look here for up to date features offered by Imagine Dentistry.
