At the Center of Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer not one, not two, but three different types of dentures. A portion of your consultation will be dedicated to determining which one is best for you, of course. If you want to learn more about your options in the meantime, you can read on to learn more!

Partial Dentures

Your dentist may suggest a partial denture if you still have some healthy teeth. Partial dentures contain as many prosthetic teeth as necessary to fill gaps left by missing teeth. They also prevent existing teeth from drifting out of position. Dr. Crescenzo and Dr. Joe use unobtrusive metal clasps, as well as dental implants in some cases, to attach partial dentures.

Full Dentures

While partial dentures are ideal for patients who still have some of their natural teeth intact, full dentures are ideal for those who have lost all of their teeth! This restoration contains an upper and/or lower row of realistic prosthetic teeth on a base that's the same color as your natural gums. Over-the-counter adhesive, natural suction, or dental implants will keep your dentures secure.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are where state-of-the-art dental implants and tried-and-true dentures intersect. With this tooth-replacement solution, we secure your denture in place with strategically placed implants. In addition to providing an added level of stability, this service is chosen by roughly 500,000 patients each year because the results can last for three decades or more with proper care!

The Benefits of Dentures

Today's dentures look natural and feel great. Of course, that’s not the only reason dentures are so popular year after year, decade after decade. They can also improve speech, provide support for facial muscles to create a more youthful appearance, and are crafted from natural-looking materials. If that wasn’t reason enough to consider dentures, they also return the ability to eat a healthy diet!

Because beautiful smiles are always in style, contact the Center for Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry in Hammonton, NJ to make an appointment. We’ll happily discuss the option of dentures and partials with you and lead you through the process comfortably to ensure your total satisfaction.

Denture FAQs

Can I Sleep with My Dentures?

We recommend taking your dentures out every night before bed. This allows your gums an opportunity to breathe, which is important to prevent sores and poor circulation in your mouth. Your dentures may also accumulate bacteria during the day, so taking your dentures out to soak in an antibacterial solution overnight is an excellent way to keep that under wraps.

Will It Hurt to Get Dentures?

The process of actually getting your dentures should be completely comfortable. However, there are some instances where you might be tender after some given procedure and will need to be careful about aftercare.

If you’re going to have teeth removed before getting your dentures, you might be sore for a few days after the procedure. In this case, you should take any necessary prescribed medication as directed. You might also feel a little bit of discomfort when you first get your prosthetic, which should fade as you get used to them.

What Can’t You Eat with Dentures?

While dentures can afford you greater bite strength than you might have otherwise, there are certain limitations to what you can eat with your prosthetic. The dentures are adhered to the gums entirely via suction, which means that they can be pulled off by sticky foods like peanut butter or gummy candies.

There are also some foods that contain small pieces. Popcorn, nuts, sesame seeds, and other such foods can get stuck in and around dentures and may even dislodge them completely. Finally, you may want to be careful around tough steak or other meats, as these can be difficult for your prosthetic to handle.

Can I Have My Dentures Relined if They Don’t Fit Properly?

In many circumstances, the fit of your dentures will worsen over time due to wear and tear, or if the jaw underneath the gums is reabsorbed over time. When this happens, you can restore the fit of your dentures with either a soft or hard reline.

Soft relines involve adding a bit of additional padding to your prosthetic to improve their fit. This is fairly simple and can often be completed in-office. Hard relines need to be done for more expansive changes, and typically require us to send your dentures to an external lab.

If you find that your dentures aren’t staying in place, or if you notice an excess of denture sores, you may want to ask us about a reline.
