Dentures

Dentures

Dentures can help restore chewing function and can enhance your smile. Alpha Dental Center offers both traditional removable dentures, and dental implant dentures; Dr. Munal Salem, DDS, or one of his associates can help determine which option is best for you.

The 2 Types of Dentures:

  • Traditional, removable dentures can be either a full arch of the upper or lower jaw, or a partial to replace several missing teeth.
  • The partial is attached to the natural teeth on each end of a gap and the full denture is held in place be a dental adhesive.
  • Implant supported dentures are attached to metal posts surgically implanted in the jaw. These posts can support either a partial denture or a full arch of upper or lower teeth.

 

The Benefits of Dentures

Traditional Dentures provide a natural appearing smile and a good basis for chewing and good oral health. A partial denture will fill in gaps left by missing teeth and prevent existing teeth from moving in to fill that space.

Implant posts fuse to the jawbone and that gives them the strength to permanently support the porcelain dentures.  The posts also help maintain the natural strength and shape of the jaw by restoring healthy stimulation to the jawbone.

Here are some basic guidelines on how to handle common dental emergencies:
  • Toothache – see your dentist as soon as you feel pain or discomfort.
  • Broken, chipped or cracked tooth – rinse your mouth with warm water, apply a cold compress to your face and see your dentist right away. If the tooth was broken or chipped – bring the tooth fragment wrapped in wet gauze or a wet towel.
  • Knocked-Out or Loosened Tooth – due to trauma, call your dentist. If the tooth was knocked out – if at all possible, gently insert the lost tooth back in its socket simply by holding the tooth by the crown using a clean washcloth. (In the event that the tooth is dirty, first rinse the root, but do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue). If reinsertion is not possible, hold the tooth under the tongue and see your dentist immediately.
  • Broken Jaw – apply ice or cold compress to the face, go to your dentist or an emergency center immediately.
  • Bitten Tongue or Lip – clean the area with a wet cloth, apply a cold compress on the area to reduce swelling. If bleeding persists or is too excessive, go to your dentist or emergency center.
It is important for good home dental care, it involves brushing and flossing your teeth regularly; and eating a mouth healthy diet, which means foods high in whole grains, fruits and vegetables along with dairy products. It is equally and important to schedule visits with your dentist and/or dental hygienist for regular checkups and cleanings to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
Yes, genetics can also play a role in the health of your teeth and gums. Strong teeth, weak teeth, big teeth, small teeth, crooked teeth, susceptibility to cavities and even the potential to develop gum disease can be passed down from generation to generation. That is why it is so important to see your dentist regularly; your diet, dental care routine and frequency of visits to a dentist can turn around a potentially hopeless situation and develop a lifelong treatment plan, inclusive of habits that will address your potential weak spots.
