What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a reliable option for addressing lost teeth. These prosthodontic restorations can make it more comfortable to speak and chew and will renew the appearance of your smile after tooth loss. Doctors of dental surgery Dr. Jon Hendrickson and Dr. Samantha Rahrig offer a variety of full and partial detachable and implant-supported dentures for adults of all ages in Indianapolis, Bloomington, and Columbus, IN. Full-arch dentures take the place of every one of the teeth in the top arch, lower arch, or both; however, partial dentures are offered when a few of the real teeth still remain in the jaw. At Dental Beauty Wellness Center, our staff can help you find out if detachable or implant-held dentures are best for your requirements and have them individually made to produce an attractive look and secure fit. Arrange your restoration consultation with Dr. Hendrickson or Dr. Rahrig to get started.
What to Expect
Our staff will start the denture process by taking digital or physical impressions of the top and lower arches. These impressions will then be forwarded to our partnering dental lab that will create your personalized dentures. Full and partial dentures are composed of light resin, which may be supported by a titanium internal frame. Made of medical-grade biocompatible substances, dentures copy the appearance of real teeth and the gumline. Once we receive your dentures, we will have you come back for a fitting. We will modify your dentures so they fit properly. Getting back to your regular tasks can require up to a month, but they will become easier in no time. If your dentures feel like they are shifting around, we may need to schedule a modification appointment. It's important to follow the care instructions we provide so your dentures can last a long time. We will take a look at your dentures during your annual exams to ensure they are still in proper condition.
