Am I a good candidate for immediate dentures?
If you’ve lost your teeth as a result of illness, decay, or injury, and need full dentures, you may be a good candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures can be placed quickly, meaning you don’t have to live without teeth for any period. One thing to consider, however, is that immediate dentures need to be regularly relined. Relining helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and the transition to dentures.
Are partial dentures a better choice for me?
Partial dentures with a metal framework are the most common type of partials. The rigid metal frame provides sturdy support for chewing, particularly when you’re missing molars. Partial dentures with metal frames connect to existing teeth, keeping them in place and helping you feeling secure—all without dental adhesives.
Acrylic partial dentures are less expensive than metal ones but don’t last as long. They are typically used to replace front teeth as a temporary solution while Dr. Greene constructs permanent partials or bridges.
Where do I go for denture repairs?
The licensed denturists at Fabulous Smiles of Atlanta offer many types of denture repairs that can often be completed in a few hours. They can repair your existing or custom set of dentures on-site.
