Replacing Teeth With Full Dentures
Everett, WA

Dentures soaking in a glass of water, Jeffrey Tufarolo DDS Everett WATeeth play a huge role in our lives, and we constantly take them for granted. Obviously we use them to chew our food but they are essential for so many other things. Teeth provide your jawbone with feedback that keeps the bone alive and healthy - often without them the bone can recede. Further, it’s very difficult to speak properly without teeth. Without them the structure of your face can change drastically. With all that to consider there are a few different option for those who have lost all of their teeth, full dentures being the most popular.

How are dentures made?

Dentures are a very personal prosthesis and one size certainly does not fit all. Everyone’s mouth is unique and thus every denture is unique. When we begin the process of creating a full set of dentures we start by measuring your mouth thoroughly. Both the upper and lower jaws are measured and a pink plastic base is created from the measurement which will mimic the look of your gums. To each base the “teeth” are attached. These teeth will look and act much like your natural teeth did.

What to Expect

As with any new prosthesis, dentures take some getting used to. A full set of dentures will look and act much as your normal teeth would but there are some things that they cannot do. Some kinds of food can be difficult to eat with dentures. These include chewy things like gum and caramels, and some tougher fruits and vegetables like apples and corn.

When sleeping or cleaning your dentures it is important to remove them. Often, because they feel different within your mouth than normal teeth. People sometimes remove them during the day for a break from the feeling of dentures. Being able to affix them to your mouth is one of the biggest changes you will have to make. There is a number of products available that will allow you to fix dentures to your mouth.

Advantage of Dentures

The biggest difference between a full set of dentures and a procedure that would accomplish the same goal is cost. Dentures are, by far, the most cost effective solution to replacing your teeth. The process for having dentures made is also much faster than that of comparable procedures. Dental implants can take near to a year to complete implementation whereas dentures typically take about a month from measurement to when you receive them.

It will always be easier to take care of a set of dentures than it will be to take care of a dental implant or even your natural teeth. Being able to remove dentures give you the distinct advantage of being able to clean them thoroughly and not miss anything.
