Teeth that have been compromised by progressive tooth decay and periodontal disease can negatively impact your quality of life. Even though they can seriously impair your ability to chew food, they can also cause problems with your speech and can lead to oral infection and inflammation.
If the full function of your mouth has been significantly compromised, our Evans Street Dental Center team can fit you for a removable set of dentures. Most people have all of their teeth replaced by dentures in a single session.
There might be a few healthy teeth in your mouth that will need to be extracted to allow your new dentures to fit firmly in place. After your dentist, Dr. Natalya Ramsay, has extracted the remaining teeth, she will create a detailed impression of your gum structure. This impression will be sent to the dental lab where your new permanent dentures are made.
Your dentures will be custom fit to the unique shape of your mouth. Still, many people with dentures prefer to use denture adhesives for an extra secure hold. Denture adhesives also have the added benefit of blocking out food particles from getting caught between the base of the dentures and your gums.
If you have several compromised teeth or if you are thinking about being fitted for dentures in McMinnville, Oregon, you should call Evans Street Dental Center at 503-472-1402 to schedule an appointment.
