Health Care Advice

Brush at least twice a day.

The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums

Use fluoridated toothpaste

Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.

Limit sugary foods

Bacteria in dental plaque change sugars into acids.

Complete & Partial Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance that serves as a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

There are two types of dentures: complete and partial.

1. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth in either the upper or lower arch are missing.
2. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. They not only fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, but also prevent other teeth from shifting.

Immediate dentures are generally the preferred treatment prescribed by Dr. Roberts and Dr. Hall because they do not require our patients to ever go without teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and are immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. As the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made frequently until the healing process is complete. This can take up to three months.

Reasons for dentures:

• Complete Denture – loss of all teeth in an arch
• Partial Denture – loss of several teeth in an arch
• Enhancing smile and facial tissues
• Improving chewing, speech, and digestion
