Title: Valrico – Lithia Dentist : Dentures are Right For Your Smile | Bridges Dental

Dentures A Popular Treatment For Replacing
Missing Teeth
  • Dentures are acrylic (plastic), metal or nylon
    removable false teeth, fitting over your gums and
    replacing missing teeth.
  • A denture or a complete denture as it is often
    called, is an appliance that is inserted in the
    mouth, replaces natural teeth and provides
    support for the cheeks and lips.
  • Most dentures are made of acrylic and can
    be fabricated two different ways
  • A conventional denture is made after all teeth
    have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have
  • An immediate denture is fabricated and inserted
    immediately after the teeth are extracted and the
    tissues are allowed to heal under the denture.
  • An upper denture has acrylic, usually flesh
    colored, that covers the palate (roof of the
  • A lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to
    leave room for the tongue.

Valrico Dentist, Dr. Laura Bridges Tips on
caring for your Dentures
  • Dentures should be brushed inside and outside
    daily with a soft, large nylon denture tooth
    brush with round-ended bristles.
  • Use denture creams instead of toothpastes, which
    are too abrasive and will scratch your denture.
    Rinse with cold water.
  • Dentures warp if placed in hot water.
  • Inspect your denture regularly for worn teeth.
  • Worn and stained dentures can make you look older
    and cause your dentures to function poorly.
  • Discuss all your current medications with your
    doctor and dental professional.
  • Be sure to visit your dental professional
  • Have loose dentures checked immediately as they
    can cause friction and pressure on the gum
    tissues and bones.

Dental Exams Maintenance
Your dentures are an investment and require care
and attention to maintain their optimum
performance. The fit of your dentures will have a
profound affect on your oral tissues and health.
An annual examination by Valrico dentist, Dr.
Bridges will help ensure your denture is
functioning properly.
  • Denture Exam Overview
  • Update of medical and dental history chart
  • An examination of your oral cavity
  • Tissue and bone assessment
  • Denture stability and bite examination
  • Cleaning and polishing of your denture
  • Oral hygiene review

Comfort, Fit, and Integrity of Dentures
Dr. Bridges can assess your dentures for cracks,
chips, and broken or loose teeth and suggest
Denture Relines
New dentures will typically fit your mouth very
securely as it has been designed specifically for
your gums. As time goes on, your gum tissues will
change and the fit of the denture will become
more loose and thus more prone to movement inside
your mouth. Having the denture professionally
relined every one to two years will keep the
denture secure and functional.
Hard Denture Reline Valrico dentist, Dr. Laura
Bridges removes a layer of plastic from the
dentures interior surface, and then fills the
denture with a putty-like material which conforms
to the contours of your mouth creating an
accurate impression. 
Soft Denture Reline Bridges Dental may
recommend relining the denture with a material
that stays pliable for one to two years before
needing replacement
Temporary Relines A temporary,
or palliative (medicated) reline material may be
recommended to allow the inflammation to subside.
This reline makes the denture fit much more
tightly, and is usually soft and pliable.
