Types of Dentures
Dr. Barakat offers several different types of dentures in order to fit each unique patient’s needs. Depending on your situation, we may recommend either full, partial, or implant-retained dentures to repair your smile.
The base of a full denture is strategically crafted from a gum-colored acrylic to utilize natural suction to stay secured to your gums. Atop the base are replacement teeth that are color-matched and customized to blend in with your mouth and look completely natural. They’re conveniently removable as well, making them easy to clean.
The foundation of partial dentures is made from either metal or gum-colored acrylic. It’s designed to discreetly utilize your existing teeth to anchor the replacements to fill in the gaps in your arch. They’re easily removable, and the artificial teeth are made from high-quality porcelain or ceramic, while the base is also made from gum-colored acrylic.
For patients looking for a more permanent structure that provides several unique benefits, we also offer dental implants in Vienna. These utilize titanium posts that are surgically placed below your gumline to provide a stable and strong foundation for your denture to be secured to. Dr. Barakat is a Diplomate of the American Board of Implantology and completes the entire process in-office.
Benefits of Dentures
The most obvious benefits that you’ll be able to enjoy from getting dentures in Vienna is the boost of confidence. Missing teeth can severely impact your desire to let your smile show, and having a complete set of pearly whites will keep you feeling great. They’ll also enhance your ability to eat and speak more easily, helping you avoid awkward moments where a piece of food becomes stuck in a gap.
Maintaining Your Dentures
After getting your dentures, we’ll provide you with more detailed instructions on how to maintain them so you get the most out of your new dental investment. We’ve also included some basic tips below so you can get an idea of what life will be like with dentures:
- Take them out every night when you go to sleep. Be sure to place your full dentures in a glass of room temperature water so they keep their shape.
- Brush your dentures daily by using a denture brush and special denture cleaner to prevent scratching them.
- Always be careful while handling your dentures and place them on a surface with friction, like a hand towel, instead of the smooth countertop.
If you have any questions about wearing your dentures after getting them, you can always contact our office as well. Our team would be more than happy to help make sure that your dentures last for years.
