Understanding the Permanent Denture Process
The purpose of permanent dentures is to supply maximum functionality and great appearance, while feeling like a natural part of your mouth. People who have been missing teeth for a long period of time often experience a loss of self-confidence, and are embarrassed to smile because it will expose their absence of teeth.
With permanent dentures, the uncertainty of traditional dentures is removed. You will have full functionality for chewing, speaking clearly, and projecting a great smile to everyone you come in contact with. As opposed to removable dentures, permanent dentures are held in place constantly by surgically implanted anchors, so they cannot move around in your mouth. If you live anywhere in the region around Colorado Springs, CO, you should contact us at HollowBrook Dental to learn about permanent dentures.
Solutions for tooth decay
If you’ve suffered the loss of one or more teeth due to tooth decay or other oral health issues, you’ll know how inconvenient and embarrassing it can be. Tooth damage sometimes cannot be repaired, and problem teeth then have to be replaced. When you’re attempting a smile restore, you will have a number of options available to you, including denture solutions, dental implants, and for minor damage, possibly even dental veneers. When you want your dentist to ‘restore my smile’, you should at least consider the possibility of having permanent dentures installed.
The process begins with a complimentary consultation, at which we will review your options and take some 3D CT Scan to ensure your jaw bone will support an implant. When you are ready to move forward, we discuss your goals for your new teeth and smile and gather additional information and records.
Your second appointment is the day of surgery, which may include extractions, when we secure the implants into your jaw bone that will support your new dentures. Soon after that surgery, we will have your permanent dentures ready for you. You’ll love the permanent feel of them, as well as the great look they give you, and the reliability they provide when speaking and chewing.
We hope you’ll contact us at HollowBrook Dental, where we can provide you with a permanent, reliable solution to your dental worries. Once we complete your permanent dentures, you’ll have no trouble eating anything you want or speaking, and you’ll wonder why you didn’t do something like this years ago.
