Gilbert area patients ask, is dentures treatment painful?
Many patients who are faced with tooth loss in the Gilbert area may be worried about the ways in which they will restore their smiles. The smile can be an important asset. It can improve one’s confidence and help patients in eating and speaking correctly. When natural adult teeth are lost, it can affect the smile in many ways. Dr. Edward Fritz of New Health Dental recommends that patients visit his practice as soon as they experience tooth loss to discuss possible restoration solutions. For many patients, dentures are a great option.
Dentures come in two varieties, including partial and full. Partial dentures are made with metal and acrylic framework that snaps into place using the remaining teeth for support. This helps in dividing the biting and chewing forces amongst all the teeth within the dental arch. Partial dentures are easily removed for cleaning and care, and can be an economical choice when compared to bridges and dental implants. Full dentures, on the other hand, are strictly acrylic and made to include false teeth and gums. They can be removable or permanent, depending on the needs of the patient. They are intended to replace an entire arch of teeth.
Many patients are worried that denture treatment may be painful, but this isn’t the case. Dr. Edward Fritz of New Health Dental wants his patients to have a positive experience, and dentures are comfortable tooth replacement options. Patients will have a series of impressions done which are sent to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of the new dentures. Properly fitted dentures are comfortable to wear, and patients can have them adjusted as changes occur to the structure of the mouth. This ensures proper fit and comfort for many years to come!
