If you are missing several of your teeth, dentures can be a great option to restore your smile in Hickory.
If you are missing several of your teeth, dentures can be a great option to restore your smile. Dentures are replacement teeth that are removable, and we can create sets of dentures that fill in the gap left by multiple missing teeth or just one tooth. Complete dentures are an option when all of the teeth are missing, allowing the wearer to eat normally and still feel confident when smiling and speaking.
If you are having teeth pulled due to infection, decay or other problems, there are typically two options. The first option is to have the dentures made in advance, so you won’t have to spend any time without teeth during the healing period. This is called immediate placement of dentures. Conventional placement of dentures involves creating the mold and placing the dentures 8-12 weeks after removing the teeth, which allows for the gums and tissue to heal in the meantime.
At Hickory Distinctive Dentistry, our team members can talk to you about denture options and what might work best. We offer dentures to those in and around Hickory, North Carolina, and we have appointments available Monday-Wednesday and Friday. We can also help you learn how to take care of your dentures, so they stay looking nice and will continue to be functional for you for years to come. Denture care includes proper cleaning each day, keeping them wet when they are out of your mouth, and using caution to prevent dropping them, as they are very delicate.
