Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable dental prosthetics that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They consist of artificial teeth made from composite resin or porcelain and a gum-colored base.

Denture technology has come a long way over the years, and today, dentures are natural-looking, more comfortable, and easier to wear than ever before.

Madison Dental Partners offers several types of dentures, including:

Partial dentures

The practice selects partial dentures when you have some remaining healthy teeth. Partial dentures not only replace your missing teeth but prevent your remaining teeth from shifting.

Complete dentures

The practice creates complete dentures for patients who need to replace all their teeth. Complete dentures can be either conventional or immediate style.

Madison Dental Partners orders conventional dentures after they’ve removed your unhealthy teeth and wait for your gums to heal. Healing takes about four to six weeks, a time during which you go without teeth.

If you’re getting immediate dentures, the team orders them in advance. After you get your diseased or damaged teeth removed, they immediately place your new dentures.

Immediate dentures keep you from having to go without teeth, but you do have to come in to get them adjusted after your gum tissues have shrunk and healed.

Do I need dentures?

You may need dentures if you have missing teeth that interfere with your daily activities like your ability to speak, chew, and eat properly.

If you’re suffering from sagging facial muscles where your teeth are missing, dentures offer you a way to restore facial volume.

Dentures may also be a great option for you if you’re looking to create a beautiful smile.

How do dentures feel?

Typically, when you first wear them, dentures feel somewhat awkward. This changes over time as the muscles in your jaw, face, and mouth adjust to the new appliance.

During this awkward phase, you may notice:

  • An increase in saliva flow
  • That your dentures feel bulky or loose
  • Soreness
  • Difficulty speaking or eating

Rarely, you may also experience nausea. After a few weeks, these symptoms go away. Soon enough, you’ll feel more uncomfortable with your dentures off.
