Tooth loss can impact your life in many ways beyond the way your teeth appear when you smile. Missing teeth can affect your self-confidence, ability to speak and chew properly, and overall oral health and wellness. At the DENTONAL Dental Clinic, we provide patients in Antalya, Turkey, who have experienced tooth loss with several options to restore the function and appearance of their smiles, including removable full and partial dentures.
Modern Denture Options For Every Lifestyle
Today’s dentures are nothing like the ones you may remember from your grandparents’ generation! Advances in dental technologies and materials have enabled us to provide our patients with various alternatives to meet a wide variety of tooth replacement needs.
- Full dentures, also called complete dentures, are designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. They are generally held in place with natural suction or denture adhesives and are custom-made for optimal comfort and function.
- Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth in an arch, which don’t necessarily need to be located close to each other. Partial dentures are also entirely customized based on your specific mouth and typically clip into place using attachments on your existing teeth.
What To Expect When Getting Dentures
When you are getting traditional full or partial dentures, we start by taking dental impressions of your mouth after any extractions have occurred and your tissues have had a chance to heal. That is important because your oral structures change shape during the healing process, and we want to guarantee that your denture is a perfect fit for your final arch shape.
Based on the dental impressions, your dentures are fabricated in a laboratory based on our specifications. When your new dentures are ready, you will come back into the office, and we will have you try them on, making any minor adjustments necessary for optimal fit. We will provide you with all of the information you need to know about using and caring for your new denture and how to make the adjustment period as easy as possible.
