Dentures Fort Wayne
As a multi-disciplinary practice, we take pride in the ability to offer custom dentures in Fort Wayne. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, dentures may be the right solution for you. Dentures are removable false teeth that can help you achieve a beautiful smile again. At Hale Family Dentistry, we take great care in providing optimal treatment for our patients. We make premium dentures and pay close attention to ensure the best fit possible. If you’re looking for a dentist who knows dentures, Dr. Hale is the one.
What are dentures?
A complete denture is an artificial replacement for natural teeth. They rest against your gum tissue and act as an alternative to teeth. In most cases, patients need multiple tooth extractions prior to having dentures. Depending on Dr. Hale’s proposed treatment plan for your unique situation, you may need extractions which can be done in our office or by one of our trusted oral surgeons.
These traditional dentures are made over several appointments with the dentist. Dr. Hale will take an impression of your mouth, and work with a local dental laboratory to carefully craft your denture. A lot goes into it, such as determining height, size, space, bite, and artfully developing the perfect look for your unique mouth. A custom denture can be an affordable option for someone needing a complete smile makeover without the means for dental implants or implant-supported dentures.
Benefits of Full Arch Dentures
- A custom denture can help achieve a beautiful smile and make you look (and feel) younger.
- Affordable compared to other tooth replacement options.
- Prevent sunken looking face due to loss of teeth.
Unlimited Denture Adjustments
Fit is very important with any denture. In the initial first weeks of having your denture, you will likely need a few adjustments with Dr. Jonathan Hale. With our traditional dentures, there is no limit to the number of adjustments we make, so if at any time something doesn’t feel right, give our office a call. It will be a short appointment and will make a huge difference in the way you feel. Over the life of your denture, normal wear may require your denture to need more adjusting. We will never charge for a denture adjustment given you maintain regular annual appointments with our office.
You may need a denture adjustment if you experience the following:
- Discomfort eating
- Dentures falling out of your mouth
- The feeling of gagging
- Sore spots
Dentist Approved Care Routine
Ensure longevity and maintain the look and feel of your natural teeth by taking these steps to care for your new teeth. Brush your dentures twice a day. Just like your real teeth, your dentures need to be brushed with a soft bristle brush every day. The best kind of cleaner is going to be white vinegar or a specific denture cleaning solution. These products are not harsh and will help remove the extra grime from all-day wear. Never use a hard toothbrush or hot water. This will scratch and distort the plastic. If you need false teeth, then taking time to make them properly will ensure the best outcome for optimal comfort and wearability. At your next appointment, be sure to ask the dentist which solution is good for your dentures. If you wear dentures, it’s very important to clean them regularly.
Other Teeth Replacement Options
There are many types of dentures and even more options for having your teeth replaced to improve your dental care. If you only need a few teeth replaced, a partial denture can help restore your smile’s functionality and appearance.
