Bear Creek Dental Center recommends patients who have multiple missing teeth schedule an appointment with a restorative dentist as soon as possible since, if left unchecked, gaps can lead to issues with jaw function and facial muscles.
The practice’s partial dentures can replace several lost teeth in a single arch. The removable dental appliance works by attaching to the natural teeth with clasps. By filling in the empty space, the denture can enhance the wearer’s smile, as well as improve their ability to speak and chew.
If all of the teeth in an arch need to be replaced, Bear Creek may recommend the patient choose to have complete dentures fitted. In this instance, the local practice offers conventional complete dentures, which will be fitted after any excess teeth have been removed and the gums have healed, typically after 4 or more weeks. This means that patients will go without teeth while they wait for their mouths to settle and heal.
Alternatively, the team can fit an immediate denture which, as the name suggests, is made before the teeth are removed so that it can be used immediately. Bear Creek will make adjustments to the appliance once the tissues heal.
Regardless of the denture type, the dental technicians will take a mold of the teeth and mouth in order to deliver a comfortable and natural-looking fit. They can provide an aftercare plan, in addition to guidance on the short-term side effects which may include difficulty with speech and minor discomfort.
Alongside its denture fitting and adjustment services, Bear Creek Dental Center offers a range of restorative procedures, including root canal therapies and composite filling treatments.
The local practice adheres to the professional standards recommended by the ADA American Dental Association, the CDC, and other health agencies.
Its team stays up to date with the latest technologies in cosmetic and restorative dentistry by attending lectures, meetings, and conventions, as well as ensuring the practice is supplied with the latest dental care equipment.
