Why Do I Need Dentures?
Your confidence may fade and your appearance will transform after tooth loss. With dentures, you can get back to your confident, regular self even after the loss of your teeth. Your smile will look and feel just as it did years ago – maybe even better! Offering the most advanced removable dentures to provide the best fit for you, Dr. Franklin and his team guide you every step of the way. Work with our team to select the shade and shape of your custom-designed denture. Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be removed and re-inserted into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever. If you and Dr.Franklin decide that dentures are the right solution for you, he will first examine your mouth and produce a model of your jaw. From this design, Dr.Franklin and his team can begin the denture-making process.
Types of Dentures

There are two main kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures. Your Lodi dental practitioner, Todd A Franklin, D.D.S. will assist you in selecting the type of denture that is most appropriate for you, based on the number of teeth you need to have replaced and your own personal budget. Complete dentures replace all of the natural teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw. This natural looking teeth replacement makes chewing simpler and enhances pronunciation. Full dentures are typically made entirely of plastic. Dr.Franklin will ensure that your dentures fit exactly right in your mouth, for the most comfort possible. Full dentures can also be anchored on the roots of teeth or dental implants – these are called hybrid dentures. Detachable partial dentures usually include replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases. A partial denture may have a metal framework and clasps that link to your teeth, or they can have other connectors that are more natural looking. In some cases, a removable partial denture is made to connect to your natural teeth with gadgets called accuracy accessories.

What To Expect After Your Denture Procedure

New denture users need time to get accustomed to their new “teeth,” due to the fact that even the best-fitting dentures will feel awkward initially. While the majority of patients can start to speak normally again within a few hours, many patients report pain with consuming food for a number of days to a couple of weeks following the procedure. To get accustomed to chewing with a new denture, start with soft, easy-to-chew foods. In addition, denture users typically notice a small change in facial appearance, enhanced salivary circulation, and minor irritation or pain.

Implant-Supported Dentures

In the case of a full-mouth restoration, implant-supported dentures are a great and no-fuss alternative. An implant-supported fixed denture is a lifelike set of teeth – including fleshy looking gums – that replace all teeth and remain inside the mouth at all times. It is securely and conveniently anchored by a number of dental implants that, like the implant-supported bridge, fuse to the jawbone and act as bone and denture support beams. Implant-supported fixed dentures are perfect for individuals who have experienced dramatic deterioration of the gums and jawbone, which is an inescapable result of tooth loss. Implant-supported dentures are best for individuals who have notable degeneration of the gums and jawbone, which is an inescapable outcome of tooth loss. Given that bones are composed of living tissue that need constant stimulation to maintain their volume and density, implants can keep your gums and jawbone active and well-supported. The stimulation of the bone typically comes from the use of your teeth; when your tooth is lost, the bone that used to surround and support them begins to break down. If this is allowed to continue, your face might begin to sag from an absence of bone structure.
