In the Meantime… Dentures
“I found myself losing teeth until the whole left side of my mouth was toothless. It takes a while for your mouth to heal so that I could have permanent dental implants. Dr. Chung and I communicated about my frustration of having to wait so long for my new teeth that he suggested that I get some partial dentures in the interim. I did and I was so glad I made the effort to get them. I had great looking teeth that felt and even looked natural and it helped me to wait until my own gums were strong and healthy enough to continue with dental implants. All of my treatments were done with sedation therapy, which made the whole process much more pleasant.”
All Different Types of Dentures
When searching for answers to missing teeth you will find many plausible answers to your questions. Most of the answers to denture questions will boil down to two solutions: full dentures (complete dentures) and partial dentures. There are several different types of materials of which these are made. The full dentures are prosthetic devices custom made to replace missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissue of the oral cavity. Most full dentures are removable for cleaning and comfort when sleeping. The partial dentures are designed for people with existing teeth. They too are removable for cleaning and sleeping. They can be made of all-acrylic or acrylic-based materials along with a metal base. Call Springwater Dental for quality affordable service in acquiring dentures in Portland (503) 902-6604.

Steps for Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace ones that were lost. It will require several appointments during the process of receiving dentures. The first appointment will be making an impression of your mouth and gums. The impression will be sent to a lab to create a wax impression of your new teeth. During the second appointment, Dr. Chung will study your jaw to create a record of how your teeth and jaws fit together. On the third visit, you will ‘try on’ your wax creation to see and get the feel of your new teeth and evaluate how they look and fit. After gathering that information, the wax is sent back to the lab to make the final dentures with your new porcelain set of teeth. The fourth visit will be to put your new dentures on and have final fittings and adjustments for them. Any other check-ups are called adjustments. We are excited to help you gain the confidence and appearance that you desire. Call Springwater Dental for dentures in Portland. (503) 902-6604 Ask about our sedation techniques.
