Dentures

Dentures in Lee’s Summit, MO

If your in Lee’s Summit and needing dentures make sure to come to Lakewood Dental. There are different types of dentures, but they share their common function. They replace teeth that have become loose or been lost due to bone loss. When bone loss around the roots of teeth is great enough to loosen them or let them fall out, it’s time for dentures. Relax. No one enjoys losing their natural teeth, but you can still eat and talk regularly.

The entire mouth is examined and a determination is made as to which teeth will have to be removed, and which will remain. The loose teeth are then extracted. Dentures are fitted to go over or around whatever teeth remain in the mouth, depending on the type. There is an adjustment period after dentures are placed in the mouth, and it can take some getting used to. But once accustomed to the dentures, all the normal functionality and appearance return and one just carries on as usual. Often implants can used to further stabilize the dentures. 

Immediate Dentures
An immediate denture may be the best solution when complete extractions of your remaining teeth is unavoidable. Having immediate artificial set of teeth will allow you to avoid the embarrassment of living without teeth. We will begin the preparation for this procedure before your teeth are extracted. Dentures are beneficial for those who wish to replace all or most of their teeth. They are custom-made to provide a natural appearance and comfortable fit in your mouth. Dentures may restore your confidence and allow you to smile freely.
Conventional Full Dentures
Removing all of your teeth may be valuable to your oral health. When your gums are healed, your dentures are placed in your mouth and adjustments may be made. Your dental team strives to make this process as comfortable as possible for you.
Immediate Full Dentures
Immediate dentures are placed instantly after your teeth are removed. These set of false teeth are recommended for those who have suffered from tooth decay, gum disease or dental injuries. Immediate full dentures speeds up the wait time for healing without teeth. Follow-up appointments will have to be made to adjust dentures if needed.
Partial Set of False Teeth

Partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth. Having a partial set of teeth will prevent shifting and erupting of the other teeth.

You should care for your false teeth just like you would for your teeth. They should be brushed daily to remove food particles and plaque. Brushing can also help prevent the teeth from staining. You will also need to keep regular appointments with your dentist to screen for oral cancer, correct ill-fitting set of teeth and contribute to your overall health.
