Quality Dentures in Coeur d'Alene That Will Restore Your Winning Smile

Dentures

Our quality denture services in Coeur d'Alene are designed to provide replacement teeth that fit snugly and give you a confident, healthy and attractive smile. In the past, dentures were regarded simply as an aid to eating. While this is still a crucial consideration, aesthetic appearance and comfort are nowadays also key factors.

Thanks to advances over the last 20 years in denture materials and technology, and how impressions are taken, our modern dentures in Coeur d’Alene fit better and look more natural than their older counterparts, providing you with a set of fully-functional replacement teeth to give you back your self-esteem.

Full Dentures and Partial Dentures

There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Both are removable.

Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. Immediate full dentures can be fitted as soon as teeth are extracted. This avoids the problem of being without teeth during the healing process. A conventional full denture can be put in place after the gums have healed, which can take weeks or months.

Partial dentures – a non-fixed alternative to dental bridges – are used when you have some teeth left. The replacement teeth are attached to a frame that is connected to your natural teeth.

Benefits of Our Dental Services in Coeur d’Alene

Making quality dentures takes more skill, time and expense than that involved in producing so-called economy dentures, which can turn out to be uncomfortable through a bad fit.

Our personalized denture services in Coeur d'Alene can solve multiple problems that can arise when teeth are missing.

Our dentures can:

  • Enhance your facial appearance by filling the gaps in your mouth.
  • Address issues with speaking.
  • Avoid chewing difficulties, so you don’t have to settle for soft foods.

A downside of dentures is that they can tend to shift in your mouth, but most people get used to them after a while.

The majority of people who have lost some or all of their teeth can benefit from our denture services in Coeur d’Alene. Failure to replace missing teeth can have serious repercussions.

If missing teeth are not replaced, the bone that used to surround them can begin to deteriorate. Loss of teeth can also cause a shift of bite force onto remaining teeth, resulting in excessive wear and tear. Over time, remaining teeth can also encroach into gaps left by missing teeth.

How to Look After Dentures

Although dentures will have to be replaced eventually, they typically five to 10 years with proper care.

Looking after your dentures involves:

  • Being aware they’re fragile – they may break if dropped.
  • Going to your dentist if your dentures become cracked or chipped.
  • Soaking your dentures overnight in cold water or a cleanser solution.
  • Brushing your dentures daily to get rid of bits of food and prevent a build-up of plaque. Many types of toothpaste can damage dentures. Use a denture brush and water or a gentle cleanser.
  • Remembering to continue scheduling six-monthly dental check-ups.

Are Dentures Right for Me?

While dentures can never feel exactly like natural teeth, today’s dentures are better looking and more comfortable than ever.

Our denture services in Coeur d’Alene will ensure your dentures will sit properly within your mouth, with minimal slipping, so you can feel confident with everyday activities such as smiling, eating and talking.

However, dentures are not for everyone. We can help you to make an informed decision on whether dentures are right for you. To find out more about our Coeur d’Alene denture services, you can schedule a consultation online or call us on 208-449-0414.
