Dentures Hood River, Oregon

Smiling woman wearing dentures in Hood River, ORIt is an incredibly frustrating feeling to lose your teeth. There are plenty of physical problems that arise due to tooth loss. Jaw pain and temporomandibular joint fatigue is a common issue. Chewing food becomes a chore and in some cases certain foods become impossible to eat. The appearance of your face can change drastically without teeth to provide a buffer for your cheeks. There is also the mental toll that comes with tooth loss. It is often a point of shame or embarrassment to lose teeth. Dentures are an affordable and reliable dental appliance that can give you the ability to replace your teeth and take control of your appearance.

Partial Dentures

When you are missing several teeth in a row, either on the top or bottom arch, it is imperative that you have them replaced. Without neighboring teeth to act as barriers, teeth have a tendency to drift. When teeth drift your bite will inevitably change. A change in bite is often followed by TMJ fatigue or pain and we would like you to avoid that at all costs.

There are many different types of partial dentures including:
•  Single tooth partials
•  Mixed support partials
•  Unilateral partials
•  Implant-supported partials
•  Fixed rigid partials
•  Fixed rigid partials with clasps
•  Flexible partials

Complete Dentures

When you have lost all or most of your teeth, the most economical and quick way to replace them is a set of full dentures. Dentures can make a massive difference in the appearance and function of your smile and ability to eat. They fill out the structure of your face nicely and can even make a difference in the fight against bone loss in the jaw.

Speaking without teeth can become a very difficult task. People often have a hard time understanding those without teeth. Dentures give your mouth the structure it needs in order to be able to pronounce words correctly, and without a lisp.

The biggest difference dentures make is they give you confidence in your smile.

Taking Care of Your Dentures

Dentures can last a long time as long as you take proper care of them. The first step to taking care of your dentures is to buy a toothbrush made specifically for them. Dentures are not as hard as the enamel on your teeth and as such can be scratched by a normal toothbrush. Normal toothpaste can be harsh on dentures as well.

Dentures need to be taken out of the mouth at night. This is a great time to place them in a denture cleaning solution. Not only does this remove bacteria from them, it prevents bad smells and tastes from becoming ingrained in the dentures.

What to Expect With Dentures

It can take some time to get used to a new set of dentures. Some foods can be difficult to eat, and the surfaces upon which the dentures sit can be made tender. After a few months of regular use, the difficulties will fade. The sore spots will tend to go away. If you experience significant pain or discomfort while wearing your new dentures, you should give us a call as soon as possible so that we can address the issue.
