Dentures Q&A

What are dentures?

Dentures are a set of prosthetic teeth used that replace multiple missing teeth. They help restore your mouth’s functionality so you can eat, talk, and laugh with confidence. Dr. Barton is skilled in giving patients the natural, beautiful smiles they deserve.

Depending on your needs, you may require partial or complete dentures:

Partial dentures

If you have multiple missing teeth but also still have healthy original teeth, you can use partial dentures to fill in the spaces between your natural teeth to restore your complete smile.

Complete dentures

Sometimes the healthiest, most comfortable dental option is to remove teeth, and in the case that all the natural teeth are missing, complete dentures can give you back functionality. They cover the full dental arch of the bottom or top of the mouth, and you can hold them securely in place with a dental adhesive.

What can I expect when I get dentures?

In either case, Dr. Barton custom-makes your dentures for a thoroughly comfortable fit. She takes a scan of your mouth to create the denture and sends the information to a dental lab to have the appliance made. 

Once completed, she adjusts your dentures until their fit and appearance align with the contours of your mouth. This ensures the best possible results.

How do I care for my dentures?

Caring for your dentures is not so different from your regular oral hygiene habits. Whether you have complete or partial dentures, you can take care of them by:

  • Removing the dentures and rinsing them after eating
  • Handling them carefully whenever you remove them
  • Cleaning your mouth with a soft toothbrush or gauze
  • Brushing dentures at least once or twice daily
  • Soaking the dentures overnight (be sure to rinse them before returning them to your mouth if you’re using a denture-soaking solution)
  • Attending your regular dental checkups

Talk to Dr. Barton if you have any discomfort or concerns about your dentures’ fit. Your comfort is her priority, and communication is key to ensuring it.
