Patients who are missing an entire arch or all of their teeth can benefit greatly from full dentures. These are customized replacement teeth that are crafted from materials that are able to mimic the appearance of home-grown enamel. This are attached to a gum-colored acrylic base that uses natural suction to stay securely in place in your mouth.
Many of our patients enjoy having full dentures because they are removable. This allows them to give their gums a break by taking them out before they go to bed. This feature also makes them easier to clean.
You may have heard of partial dentures referred to as removable bridges before. These are recommended for patients who are missing multiple teeth in an arch. They’re strategically designed to preserve your remaining healthy teeth while staying securely in place while you eat and speak. The natural-looking replacement teeth are attached to a small gum-colored base. Instead of relying on suction to keep them in place, they’re connected to a metal foundation that can easily be removed from your mouth at your convenience.
Our patients who aren’t sure if partial or full traditional dentures are the right choice for them often gravitate towards implant-retained dentures. These are full or partial dentures that are held in place by titanium posts that have fused with your jawbone, replacing your natural roots. Not only do these provide you with additional strength and stability, but they can also last for up to three decades with proper maintenance.

Denture Maintenance Tips
Even though your dentures won’t be able to develop cavities, it’s important to follow the maintenance tips given to you by your dentist in Conyers when you first receive your restorations. They’re fairly easy to care for, but daily maintenance is a must. Be sure to brush your prosthetic using a denture toothbrush and specially made cleaner every day to remove plaque and food debris. Every night before you climb into bed, be sure to soak your dentures in a cup of denture-soaking solution or room temperature water. This will allow them to hold their fit and shape. For partial dentures, it’s important to continue brushing and flossing your remaining natural teeth and regularly cleaning and sanitizing your restoration.

Most people are probably familiar with dentures, but there are a few different aspects about the process of getting them that you may not have thought about before. Dr. Amin will answer any questions you have during your initial consultation or at any point during the process. We’ve already addressed a few of the most common questions related to dentures in the section below, but of course you’re free to reach out if you don’t find what you’re looking for.
How Will I Know If I’m Qualified for Dentures?
You may qualify for a different type of denture depending on how severe your tooth loss is and how healthy your jaw is. Partial dentures are for people who still have most of their teeth but have lost a few as a result of oral disease, malnutrition, or an accident. Full dentures are reserved for situations where you have already lost most or all of your teeth, most likely due to severe gum disease or a similar oral health issue. If you want your dentures to be supported by dental implants, then we need to confirm that the jawbone still has enough healthy tissue to support them.
Will It Be Hard to Talk with Dentures?
There will be a period of adjustment where you have to relearn how to speak with your new teeth, but you’ll get better with practice. Many people experience a slight lisp or have a tendency to mutter their words before they fully adapt to their dentures. It helps to speak slowly at first. You might also try reading out loud and taking the time to practice words that you find that you have trouble with. Sometimes you might find that your teeth have tendency to shift when you speak; it often helps to bite down and swallow before you begin talking.
Can I Clean My Dentures with Toothpaste?
Only implant-retained dentures can be safely cleaned with toothpaste. For removable partial and full dentures, you’ll want to find a less abrasive substance that won’t damage the surface of the restoration. Instead, use hand soap or a mild dishwashing liquid for your regular cleanings; you might also invest in a specialized denture cleaner. You can still use a toothbrush to clean the teeth, but make sure that it has soft bristles. You should be cleaning your dentures after every meal as well as right before bed.
How Can I Reduce the Cost of Dentures?
Since dentures are considered a medical necessity for people that wouldn’t be able to speak or chew normally otherwise, they are covered under most dental insurance plans (although it’s important to make sure by getting in touch with your provider first). If you’re eligible for Medicaid or Medicare, those will also typically help pay for dentures. And for those that don’t have any insurance at all, ask about our in-house membership plan that offers discounts on a wide variety of dental services.
