Parade Your Smile With Complete Dentures in Loveland
Complete dentures are meant for those who are missing all of their teeth in the upper and/or lower arches of the mouth. There are two types of complete dentures patients can opt for: immediate and conventional dentures.
Immediate dentures are just that: immediate. These dentures are made before the teeth are extracted and can be worn as soon as possible. Dentists generally warn against immediate dentures because they do not allow the gums and bones to shrink, so patients who choose this option are likely to be visiting their dentist often for adjustments and additional relines.
Patients who choose conventional dentures cannot wear them until 8-12 weeks after teeth extraction, however these dentures are fitted and adjusted after the extraction of the teeth rather than before. This way, the gums and bones have ample time to adjust and heal properly before using the dentures.
Partial Dentures to Replace Your Teeth
Patients opt for partial dentures if they are only missing some of their teeth in an arch. Partial dentures serve to fill the gaps between already existing healthy teeth. Not only do they assist with regular eating, they protect the existing teeth from shifting in the bones and gums and can also help to insure you can keep your real teeth as long as possible.
Partial dentures even assist as supports for dental crowns and bridges, as they provide extra support and durability.
