Dentures have been widely used to help people regain their ability to chew since the 1700s. Earlier dentures were often crafted of wood or ivory. Later, gold and porcelain were introduced as denture options. Today, traditional dentures are made with acrylic or ceramic composites that are known for their durability, comfort and natural look. The composites resist staining and will keep their look for years.
Traditional dentures are removable and are often held in place by dental adhesives and gels. Caring for them is easy. Just remove them, brush them, clean them and store them overnight in either warm water or a dentist approved cleaning solution.
Patients in Gulfport looking for permanent dentures can get fixed dentures, also known as denture stabilization. These are attached to dental implants that are surgically placed in the jaw bone. Fixed dentures are extremely durable and present a natural look. Fixed dentures offer exceptional stability and comfort and can be cared for like natural teeth.
When you are ready for dentures, Dr. Guillot will examine your mouth’s structure and oral health. If you are going to have dental stabilization, then we want to make sure that your jaw bone is healthy enough to support the implants. To make your dentures, we’ll create an impression of your mouth. From this, we’ll be able to forge the composite mixture into dentures that fit you perfectly.
Yes, with excellent care, some types of dentures can last a lifetime.
Modern-day dentures are built with a resilient finish and are good at resisting stains. However, continually using tobacco or eating foods that stain can dim your smile over the years.
Your dentures will look natural. Having dentures will also support the muscles around your gums, cheeks and lips. What people may notice is a great smile on a face that doesn’t droop or sag.
