Dentures in Charles Town

Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. Depending on each individual patient case, they may receive full or partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed from the mouth and replaced with a full set of dentures.

Let Us Help You Maintain Your New Smile

Even though dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them like they are. You should brush them to remove plaque and food particles and then place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution. Never use hot water to clean or soak because it could warp the dentures. They are delicate, so make sure you are careful when handling them so you don’t drop them. Also, never try to adjust them yourself. Please always seek assistance from your dentist if they feel uncomfortable or loose. If you are in Charles Town, Ranson, Harper’s Ferry, Kearneysville, Shepherdstown, Inwood, Martinsburg, or the surrounding area, call Charles Town Smiles today at 304-725-4492 to discuss if dentures are right for you!

Types of Dentures

Conventional Full Dentures

This is when all the teeth are removed and the tissue is given time to heal before the dentures are placed. It could take a few months for the gum tissue to heal completely, and during this time you will be without teeth.

Immediate Full Dentures

Prior to having your teeth removed, your dentist takes measurements and has dentures fitted for your mouth. After removing the teeth, the dentures are immediately placed in your mouth. The benefit is that you do not have to spend any time without teeth. You will, however, need to have a follow-up visit to refit your dentures because the jaw bone will slightly change shape as your mouth heels. The dentures will need to be tightened after the jaw bone has healed.

Partial Full Dentures

Another option is when not all of your teeth need to be removed. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent appliance in your mouth.

Implant Retained Dentures

Loose dentures concern everyone – including our team. Fortunately, we have a solution: implant retained dentures. This option could work for you if you have no teeth in your jaw but the jawbone strength to support an implant. Most importantly, we can perform the implant retained dentures procedure in one day.
