Conventional vs. Immediate Dentures
Conventional dentures are placed in your mouth after your tissues have healed from any teeth removals. The benefit of conventional dentures is a better fit. After teeth are removed, bones and gums shrink and change while healing. By waiting for the healing process to be completed before getting your dentures, your dentures will have a better, longer-term fit.
Immediate dentures are inserted right after any of your remaining teeth are removed. Based on measurements and models taken at a preliminary visit, your new dentures will be fitted for your mouth so they are ready right after your tooth removal surgery.
The benefit of immediate dentures is you don't have to spend anytime without your teeth. The downside, however, is during the typical 6-8 week healing time your dentures may need to be rebased or relined to fit properly.
As a Yuma Dental patient, you'll get a full explanation of the procedures, along with our expert recommendation on which option is best for you. Your unique mouth, history and situation will be considered to ensure you have dentures fitted properly. Yuma AZ denture specialists, Yuma Dental, will review all possible denture options with you so you end up with the right dentures for your mouth.
If you have remaining teeth that are healthy, an overdenture may be the solution for you. Overdentures fit securely over a small number of remaining teeth. Often, your natural teeth will need to have work done in order to ensure the best fit of your overdenture. If you have dental implants, overdentures can be fit over them as well.
If you're a candidate for overdentures, our expert dentists will review your individual case and, based on your history and needs, recommend the best overdenture solution for you.
When you get dentures from Yuma AZ based Yuma Dental, you'll have the peace of mind knowing your denture solution is the best for your unique situation.
Get Dentures Fitted in Yuma AZ, Comfortably and Properly
Dental bones and tissues evolve over time. What once was comfortable may no longer be. This is a sign you need your dentures fitted again.
Visiting Yuma Dental anytime you experience denture discomfort will prevent any sores from developing. If you find yourself adjusting your dentures more frequently, have difficulty pronouncing certain sounds you had no trouble pronouncing before or avoid foods you used to be able to eat comfortably with your dentures, please give us a call to have your dentures fitted again. Yuma AZ denture specialists Yuma Dental will be able to address your denture issues so you can go back to enjoying your life again.
Visiting our offices for a proper fitting is especially important if you've received immediate dentures, which are dentures that were placed right after any remaining teeth were removed. The healing process usually takes between 6 and 8 weeks. During that time, your gum tissue will change more drastically as swelling decreases. This will cause your new dentures to fit your mouth differently, and often, not in the best way.
Be sure to schedule frequent dental check-ups after you've received immediate dentures. Our expert, caring and professional staff of dentists in Yuma will let you know how often you should visit us, post-denture fitting. However, if in between your scheduled visits you experience any discomfort, please give us a call right away. As a Yuma Dental patient, you should be as comfortable as possible in your new dentures.
