Do you have multiple missing teeth? Is your old denture making it difficult for you to eat or speak? Dr. Mohamed Hassan offers restorative dental treatment with dentures. Dentures may restore rows or full arches of missing teeth. However, even if you already have a denture, it may not offer you proper support. In addition, removable dentures can still slip around the mouth and often have dietary restrictions. If you need a new denture or are interested in an implant-secured restoration, contact iSmile for professional dentures in Dundalk, MD.
Types of Dentures in Dundalk, MD
There are multiple types of dentures:
- Removable Dentures: Traditional dentures are removable but held in place with adhesive. These dentures may restore the smile’s appearance but come with dietary restrictions. Patients with traditional removable dentures are often not able to eat hard or crunchy foods and may need to stick to a softer diet.
- Implant-Retained Dentures: Dental implants provide a stable anchor for dentures. With implants, patients can eat the foods they love without worrying about their restoration slipping. Dental implants also ensure that the false teeth themselves last longer.
- Immediate Dentures: Same-day dentures allow patients to receive a tooth extraction and denture on the same day. We will make a model of your teeth and jaw before your extraction to prepare for treatment. Our team will also determine if you are a candidate for immediate dentures before treatment.
Dr. Hassan always ensures that patients are in good oral health before restorative care. If needed, he will recommend root canal treatment or periodontal therapy if patients have missing teeth as a result of an infection. To begin treatment, Dr. Hassan will take impressions of the teeth. These impressions are sent to a dental lab, where technicians craft dentures according to the impressions. While permanent dentures are made, Dr. Hassan provides patients with a temporary denture.
Patients who want implant-secured dentures will require oral surgery. Dr. Hassan places the implants in the jaw bone during the implant procedure. It takes 3 to 6 months for the implants to heal. Once the implants heal and the permanent denture is complete, Dr. Hassan ensures that both the implants and restoration feel natural.
