Wanting to replace missing or damaged teeth? Dentures are an option in helping you get that confident smile back. Read below to learn more regarding how dentures can help create a radiant smile.
Many people lose their teeth as they age. Whether it’s due to an accident which fractures several teeth, issues relating to decay and cavities, or a lack of proper dental care, many patients who visit us in our Greenville, SC dental office require either partial or complete dentures.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are removable dental appliances which serve as replacements for any missing teeth and the surrounding gum tissue.
Modern dentures are typically made with acrylic resin for the gums and teeth, with an underlying structural base, which helps keep the dentures in their proper shape.
Common Reasons for Dentures
Dentures are commonplace, especially with older patients. Some reasons why you may need dentures are:
- Loss of all or several teeth in a dental arch.
- Preventing other teeth from moving due to lost teeth.
- Enhancing the patient’s smile.
- Improving functions such as chewing, eating, digestion and speech.
If you think you may need dentures, contact your trusted dentist office in Greenville, SC for a consultation. The caring and professional staff at Carolina Oaks Dental Care will take the time to address any questions or concerns you may have, as well as work with your schedule to get you a convenient appointment.
What Is the Process of Getting Dentures?
Getting dentures can consist of multiple appointments over the span of several weeks. This is because taking the right measurements, creating accurate impressions of your teeth, mouth, and jaw, and creating a custom denture to fit your mouth all take time and care.
Several of the visits will be “try-in” appointments, where your Greenville, SC dentist will work to ensure that your dentures have the proper shape, fit, and color so that they blend seamlessly in with your mouth.
Your final appointment will involve adjusting the denture and making sure that the final version of your complete denture is as comfortable as possible.
What Can You Expect After Getting Dentures?
Many patients experience increased saliva flow, soreness, and occasionally some difficulty eating and speaking normally as their muscles become accustomed to the new dentures. However, this is normal, and if you follow the recommended cleaning and care guidelines provided by your dentist, then you should be back to normal in no time at all.

“After moving around the country the last few years I am embarrassed to admit making time for dentist appointments was not a high priority. I went in for a check up and cleaning today and they made me feel very comfortable and welcome. My cleaning was more than a bit over due and I was expecting
to be very sore after. Just the opposite, she was very gentle and understating of my procrastination. I made my next appointments with no hesitation. Pleasant experience and that says a lot when it refers to a dentist appointment”
