If you’ve lost several teeth due to gum disease, accidents or age, dentures are likely the perfect solution for you. Smiley Dental and Orthodontics in Fort Worth, Texas can return your smile to the good old days. Here are some things you’ll probably want to know:

We offer two categories of dentures. Complete dentures replace every single tooth on the top or bottom half of your mouth, or both. Partial dentures replace only part of your arch and is useful if some of your natural teeth are still strong

What purposes do dentures serve? The first main purpose is functional. They help you speak more clearly and chew your food better, both of which are vital to a quality life. The second purpose is cosmetic. Dentures fill out the skin around your jaw, causing you to look younger. They also offer you a realistic and beautiful smile

After you return home with your customized set of removable dentures, here’s what your oral hygiene routine will be like:

1. You’ll need to rinse your dentures after you eat.
2. Before you go to bed, take out your dentures and brush them with a denture cleanser. Then brush the insides of your mouth. Finally, soak your dentures in a denture solution.

It may take some time for you to adjust in the first few weeks. Until then, you might notice irritation or soreness and increased saliva flow. If these symptoms persist, please call us so we can diagnose and treat the problem.
