Contact The Dentist Place For Denture Care in the Dunedin Area
Tooth enamel is one of the strongest tissues in the body, but as strong as teeth are, they're still subject to disease, damage, and decay. When teeth get badly damaged, sometimes the best way to solve the problem is to have them removed and replaced with a set of dentures. Dr. Rashid of The Dental Place is an expert when it comes to removing damaged teeth, and fitting natural looking, functional dentures. If you're in the Dunedin, Florida area and are in need of a solution to missing teeth, Dr. Rashid can give you a whole new lease on life with improved oral health, and increased confidence by providing you with a comfortable set of dentures.
Your Denture Options
Patients who visit Dr. Rashid in Dunedin typically have a choice of three different types of dentures: immediate, conventional, and implant-retained dentures.
Immediate dentures are a set of dentures that are fitted after the damaged natural teeth are removed. These immediate dentures are designed and made prior to removal, so that they're ready for placement. This ensures that a patient never has to go without a functional set of teeth.
Many people find immediate dentures fit very well. However, after the mouth heals from the extractions, the denture may not fit as well. If this happens, the patient often returns for new set of conventional dentures.
Conventional dentures typically take around a week to ten days to make. The Dental Place uses the services of a local dental laboratory to fabricate dentures from high quality bio-compatible materials. This ensures that every set of dentures looks good, feels comfortable, and functions effectively.
Implant-retained dentures are an additional option that utilizes dentures and dental implants. The dentures are fixed in place with a minimum amount of implants that provide extra support, but the dentures are still removable. Implant retained dentures are more stable and are less likely to slip in the mouth as regular dentures sometimes do.
