Removable Dentures & Partials in Casper
Losing a significant amount of teeth can be devastating for your quality of life making even the simplest daily activities more difficult. In these cases, many patients search for a worthwhile replacement as soon as possible. If this describes your situation, you may want to talk to Dr. Erin Prach about a custom-made, removable denture. These appliances can be created relatively quickly when compared with other tooth replacement solutions, and their convenience and affordability is also ideal for some.
Full dentures, as their name implies, are designed to replace the entire bottom or top arch of teeth. They stay in place within the mouth through natural suction. If a more sturdy fit is desired, denture adhesive can be used as well. The appliance is removable, allowing patients to clean and store it at night.
Partial dentures are designed to replace multiple teeth along an arch, and they come with clasps that securely attach to your natural teeth. Like full dentures, partial dentures are removable. If you’re looking for more security in your reconstructive solution, implant-retained full and partial dentures are also available, so please ask our team about this option if you’re curious.
Caring for Your Denture
In the beginning, it’s perfectly normal for your full or partial denture to feel somewhat bulky. It takes time for you to adjust to the sensation. Make sure to brush them every day with a soft-bristled toothbrush so food particles are removed. Always rinse the denture before putting it back in your mouth. Adjustments may be needed over time, so please contact our Casper, WY office if you’re in need of assistance. We’re always here to help.
