Partial Dentures in Midlothian
Partial dentures are typically used to replace a single tooth or a few teeth, and they are generally less expensive than full dentures. They are typically employed to restore your mouth's aesthetics by filling in any gaps in your smile. Partial dentures can also protect the health of your other teeth because they prevent them from shifting and weakening. Moreover, with partial dentures, you can start using both sides of your mouth again when eating, preventing wear and damage.
Same-day dentures are available for many of our patients, so book an appointment to see if you're a suitable candidate. With same-day dentures, you won't have to wait for long before getting them fitted into your mouth.
Most partial dentures have a thin metal framework that allows for a smooth feel, so the solution is both comfortable and aesthetic. At Expressions Dental Care, we work with skilled technicians to create the best solutions to restore the look of your smile and make you feel comfortable at all times.
Can I sleep in my dentures?
Yes, it is possible to wear dentures at night, but it's recommended that they be removed. By removing your dentures at night, you will give your gums a chance to relax after wearing them during the day. It's also important to keep in mind that you shouldn't wear your dentures 24 hours continuously without performing proper oral hygiene. You should clean your dentures every night and store them in water.
Is it painful to get dentures?
It's normal to experience some minor irritation when you are first fitted for your dentures. However, this will fade over time as your mouth becomes accustomed to dentures. Regular visits to the dentist may be required for a couple of months after getting fitted with dentures so we can adjust them to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
Can I eat normally with dentures?
It may take a little time to get used to eating with dentures, but most patients don't have issues eating with their dentures. You should be able to eat fairly normally with both partial and full dentures, but you may need some time to get comfortable with sticky or harder foods. By using a small amount of adhesive, you can stabilize the dentures until you learn to get comfortable with them.
Can I get a perfect color match for my partial denture?
At Expressions Dental Care, we work with highly qualified technicians who are trained in the art of color and shade matching. We can work with you to produce a match to your remaining natural teeth, so it won't be possible to tell that you are wearing a partial denture.
