Dentures in Amaya Dental, Miami, FL, 33126 and PembrokePines, FL, 33024
Living with missing teeth means facing a lot of problems. Apart from affecting your physical appearance, missing teeth also create difficulty speaking and eating food. Dentures are a popular treatment procedure to help you restore your missing teeth.
What are Dentures?
Dentures or false teeth are synthetic replacements for your missing teeth. The factors such as gum disease, tooth decay, facial injuries, and others lead to loss of teeth. Depending upon how many teeth are extracted, our dentist in Miami, FL, 33126, will recommend dentures as a treatment option. Using dentures is necessary because missing teeth also cause sagging of facial muscles.
What are the Types of Dentures?
You can book an appointment at our dental clinic in Miami, FL, 33126, for the procedure. After examining your case, our dentist will decide which type of dentures are best suited for you.
Full dentures or complete dentures are used for patients who have got all their teeth extracted from their jaw.
Partial Removable Dentures
Partial removable dentures are used for patients with only a few missing teeth. They are a removable option and can be removed during sleeping and cleaning the mouth.
Partial Fixed Dentures
You can also visit our dental clinic in Pembroke Pines, FL, 33024, to opt for partial fixed dentures. They are a non-removable option.
Implant Retained Dentures
Our dentist in Pembroke Pines, FL, 33024, recommends these dentures to all the patients who require added retention because of bone loss. These dentures provide an anchor for the teeth to connect when they are inserted into the mouth. You must remove them for cleaning.
Same-day or immediate dentures are for patients who want to get their teeth extracted and dentures installed on the same day.
How are Dentures Made?
Our dentist will take the impressions of your mouth and send them to the dental lab to make your dentures. A plaster model is created using such an impression. It is placed on a mechanical device known as an articulator to allow the technician to attach the teeth properly with wax. The technician will place artificial teeth in the denture to shape and carve the wax to create a gum-like tissue.
After placing the denture in a flask, they will put more plaster to maintain its shape. The leftover wax will be rinsed away, and they will inject acrylic into the flask to replace it. A liquid separator will be applied to ensure that the acrylic doesn’t stick. The mold will be taken off, and the technician will trim and polish it. They will be sent back to us. Any further adjustments will be made after fitting.
