Dentures & Partial Dentures for Patients in NC
If you are asking, “Should I get dentures?”, Carolina Dental Arts is here to help you make an informed decision. Our restorative dentistry serves patients from Raleigh to Goldsboro by creating fittings of all kinds that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue, as well as closely resemble your natural teeth.
Offering Different Types of Denture in Raleigh, NC and Beyond
Common reasons for dentures can include loss of teeth in an arch. Also, enhancing your smile and facial tissues, and improving chewing, speech, and digestion. In order to meet the specific needs of our patients, Carolina Dental Arts offers two types of fittings in NC. Complete and partial.
Our Complete dentures you will wear when all teeth are missing and can be either conventional or immediate.
- Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. This usually takes four to six weeks, and the patient goes without teeth during this time.
- Immediate dentures are made in advance and are immediately placed after the teeth are removed, preventing the patient from having to go without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments are made to the denture.
Our NC partial fittings are in use when some natural teeth remain. They fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, while also preventing other teeth from shifting.
Carolina Dental Arts’ Denture Process
Our process for getting dentures in NC requires several appointments over a few weeks. During these appointments, we take molds and measurements of your mouth to create your custom fittings. During this, you’ll try on your fittings several times to ensure proper shape, fit and color. Our restorative dentists will place the completed fittings during the last appointment.
When adjusting to your new fittings, you can expect to experience an increase in saliva flow, soreness and possible difficulty chewing or speaking, but these issues will pass as your muscles and tissues adjust.
Our team will instruct you on how to care for your new fittings, as proper cleaning, and good oral hygiene. As well as, regular dental visits will help your fittings last for years. They are very durable, but over time they will need repairs, adjustments or remade due to normal wear. Carolina Dental Arts is happy to provide these fittings repairs for our patients.
