Have you lost natural teeth? Do you have several gaps in your smile? If so, Dr. James Hutson in Marietta, GA, can help thanks to one versatile restoration: dentures.

What are dentures?

A dental appliance used to reconstruct missing teeth, dentures can counteract tooth loss and restore someone's ability to chew, speak, and eat.


What are the different kinds of dentures?

Dentures can benefit both the dental functionality and aesthetics of a patient. They also come in a few different varieties, including:

  • Immediate dentures, which are temporary appliances used to transition people to wearing dentures full-time
  • Conventional full dentures, which are permanent dentures that perfectly fit your teeth
  • Implant-supported over-dentures which are full dentures that are secured and supported by one or more dental implants
  • Partial dentures, which are temporary space maintainers used to support healing gums


Caring for Dentures

When you receive your dentures, it's important to know how to best take care of them. Here are some tips:

  • Rinse your dentures while they are still in your mouth. This will help get rid of any food particles.
  • While brushing your teeth, make sure you clean your cheeks, the roof of your mouth, gums, and tongue to avoid having an unpleasant breath or irritation. The American Dental Association recommends using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-invasive cleanser when cleaning your dentures.
  • Completely immerse your dentures in water when they're not in your mouth. This will help prevent them from becoming misshaped.
