Custom-made dentures may be a great choice if you need to replace most or all of your teeth. Dentures can restore your appearance and allow you to eat and speak with ease. Dr. James Mills can create either partial or full removable dentures for residents in Myrtle Beach, SC. Full dentures replace your whole lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that leave your remaining teeth to act as support. At Market Common Dentistry, we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures match your goals, and then have your dentures made custom to look beautiful and natural. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Mills to get more information about full and partial removable or implant-supported dentures.
"I am a true dentalphobe to the point that I now need dentures. I did a lot of research looking for dentists that specialize in sedation dentistry before making the initial appointment with this group. When I came in, they took many x-rays and Dr. Latvis looked at them and agreed that I was going to need dentures. We then set up an appointment for 2 days later to do a full consultation where I saw Dr. Mills and Dr. Latvis. They made me feel so much less anxious about the upcoming procedures by explaining exactly what will be happening. I can't say that I am looking forward to the procedures but I am looking forward to not being in constant pain and having frequent infections. I'll update in a few months!"- K.B. / Facebook / Nov 04, 2020
Best Candidates for Dentures
You could be a candidate for custom dentures if you have lost most or all of your teeth, but your jawbone and gums are strong and healthy. If you have natural teeth, they can either be removed if you want a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial. In your appointment with Dr. Mills, he will assess your condition and give you your choices to fit your needs and goals.
What To Expect
In some cases, Dr. Mills will perform an extraction on any natural teeth before impressions are taken, which will help craft your custom dentures. Partial dentures will be tinted to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive result. As soon as your full or partial dentures are finished, Dr. Mills will adjust them to be comfortable. He will discuss methods to clean and care for your custom dentures.
It will probably take time before your dentures feel comfortable; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, come back to Market Common Dentistry to get your dentures adjusted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times every day. Whenever you take out your dentures, they need to be soaked to avoid drying them out. You should continue to attend annual exams and biannual cleanings at Market Common Dentistry so Dr. Mills can watch the fit and wear of your custom denture and the overall health of your mouth. He will discuss when your dentures should be replaced or repaired; however, with good treatment, your custom dentures can last for a long time.
