Dentures in Waukee, IA
Dentures are an excellent solution to help people suffering from severe tooth loss to restore their teeth and confidence. We provide high-quality dentures that look great and function well.
Dentures are used by people who suffer from significant tooth loss to replace their missing teeth.
Without teeth, eating, speaking and smiling are challenging. In addition to those, it can lead to loss of facial structure, bite imbalance, and jawbone deterioration. Dentures can be effectively used to prevent many of these problems.
Dentures are simply prosthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-like support. They are worn inside the mouth over the gums where the teeth are missing. We recommend that you observe proper oral hygiene in order to keep your dentures clean and to maintain normal dental health. Lush Family Dental in Waukee offers fixed and traditional dentures.
Fixed dentures are permanent replacement teeth that are installed using dental implants that are placed in the jawbone. Fixed dentures are not removable (except by oral surgery).
Traditional dentures are removable and are held firmly in place by suction force around the dental arch. We recommend that you take them out when you sleep to allow your gums to rest.
What is Denture Stabilization?
This is a procedure used to provide proper stability to your dentures. Over time, soft tissues and bony structure begin to recede; this will cause you to keep adjusting your dentures to make them fit properly. Denture stabilization uses surgically placed implants to keep your dentures from moving. Your dentures will be fitted to the stabilizers with the aid of a snap-on attachment.
How Long Do Dentures Last?
Dentures are designed to last for many years. With proper care and good oral hygiene, your dentures should last for up to ten or more years. We recommend that you pay regular visits to your dentist during this time as removable dentures might need to be remade or relined as your jaw shape changes.
