Are Dentures Right For You?

dentures

When you smile, are there missing teeth? Gaps in our smile isn’t always a confidence booster we look for nor is it ideal when it comes to doing our daily activities such as talking or chewing our food. We need our teeth daily, but if we don’t receive the right treatment, it can be challenging to continue with our daily routine. Dentures are a great solution to replacing our missing teeth.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are a removable plate of artificial teeth which replaces missing teeth.

Types of Dentures

There are different types of dentures you can get depending on the case of your missing teeth. Each denture is placed at different times and for different reasons during the process of getting your teeth removed and prepared. For the most part, we have two full dentures and one partial denture that we can choose from, and they are as follow.

Conventional

They are full removable dentures which are made for all your teeth once they’ve been removed. With this type of denture, before molding and placing the denture,  the dentist will remove the teeth and let the gum tissue heal. Once the tissue has healed, the dentist will cast a mold of the oral cavity to create the denture mold then. During the molding process, the dentures will be made to fit your oral cavity without too many adjustments. It is a long 

x-ray and cpr certification process too because you will need to allow time to heal your tissue then, the dentist to have your dentures ready. It can take weeks or even months until you can have your dentures placed and fitted.  

Immediate

The name itself is self-explanatory, they are dentures that are immediately placed in after the teeth have been removed. Immediate dentures are used to replace a full set of teeth and have been molded before the teeth extraction. You’ll have them on during the healing process your gum tissue which is advantageous if you want to have your smile right away and eat solid foods. There is no need to wait weeks or months for your dentures.

The only downside to getting immediate dentures are the readjustments they will need as your bone and gum tissue heal. As your bone and tissue heal, they will shrink which is why your dentures will need to be realigned and reshaped to fit into your oral cavity. It’s a very costly denture than conventional dentures with the number of dental visits necessary to ensure they are properly fitted for your mouth.

x-ray and cpr certificationPartial

When you have some teeth missing, you can get a partial denture to replace your missing teeth. They are dentures that have a metal framework and clasps which connect to your remaining teeth. Partial dentures can have other connectors, but they are mostly made to attach to the remaining natural teeth. They replace your couple missing teeth but also keep your remaining teeth from shifting position.

What to Expect with Your Dentures?

Dentures will feel uncomfortable as your muscles get accustomed to having them in your mouth and holding them in place. There will be a couple of minor changes in the beginning, but over time they will pass. Here’s what you can expect with your new dentures.

  • Increase in saliva flow
  • Minor irritation and soreness
  • Feel little room for the tongue
  • Minor denture movements (i.e., when you cough or laugh)
  • Speech difficulties
  • Reintroduction to eating foods

These should all be brief expectations are you get more practice with your dentures and get accustomed to using and having them. If you experience prolonged periods with these brief expectations, you should consult with your dentist.

Proper Denture Care

Just because they’re artificial teeth doesn’t mean they need little care, on the contrary, they need the same adequate care as are natural teeth. You want to ensure you are:

  • Removing and rinsing your dentures – remove the food debris by running them over water.
  • Brush your dentures – use a soft bristled brush and nonabrasive denture cleanser to remove food debris and plaque. You don’t want to use denture cleansers inside your mouth; you always want to remove your dentures when you clean them.
  • Clean your mouth before and after your dentures – with a brush or a moist cloth; you want to ensure you are cleaning your gums, tongue and any remaining teeth you might have.
  • Soak dentures –  some dentures may require you to keep them moist, so they retain their shape. You can place them in water or denture soaking solution but, first, verify with your dentist what is the proper overnight care for your dentures. You always want to rinse them thoroughly when you have soaked them before placing them in your mouth.
  • Visit your dentist – dental check-ups are still mandatory for proper oral health care. Visiting the dentist can help assure your dentures remain a fit for your oral cavity and prevention.

Alternatives to Dentures

If you aren’t to keen on getting dentures, there is another alternative to dentures, and they are dental implants. Dental implants eliminate the need for dentures; however, not everyone is a candidate to get dental implants. Consult with your dentist to see if your eligible to receive dental implants.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Treatment, Dental Implant

Do you have to replace your tooth, missing teeth, or just tired of your dentures? What if we told you that instead of having to wear dentures you could get a dental implant? It’s less of a hassle than dentures, and it’s a possible, permanent solution to your teeth’s replacement.

Dental implants, also known as a fixture, is made of two pieces a titanium screw and a crown. There are many reasons to get dental implants:

  • tooth rotted away
  • broken tooth
  • missing tooth
  • replacement of dentures

However, before we get dental implants talking to your dentist first is important to know whether you’re eligible to get dental implants. You might not be eligible to get a dental implant if you have (to name a few):

  • chronic illness (i.e., diabetes or leukemia)
  • heavy smokers
  • poor gum health
  • bone structure not fully developed
  • not enough bone

When you have an illness or poor health, it can affect the healing process and is always best to not do it. Talk with your dentist to get examined and to verify you are eligible to receive a fixture.  

Some risks come from getting dental implants and depending on your health; it determines if you can go through the process or not.

The main risk of dental implants is an infection. During a fixture procedure, you will have to undergo three phases of implantation.

The dentist will surgically place the titanium screw(s) into the jawbone.

  1. Once the screw(s) have been placed inside the jaw, the bone will need time to heal around the implant making it strong. This process is known as osseointegration where the screw and bone integrate. It can take months for the integration to happen before the artificial teeth are placed.
  2. When the integration of the bone and implants has been completed, the placement of the teeth can be made. If it is a single tooth, a custom crown will be made, but if it is multiple teeth, a custom-made bridge will be used.
  3. During the first phase, the risk of infection is more likely to happen, having one or more open wounds. If you’re don’t care for your open wounds, bacteria can build up and cause further complications. The risks of a dental implant aren’t just at the root of poor oral hygiene after the first surgery but the surgeon. If the surgeon isn’t careful and makes a mistake, they can permanently damage your jawbone and nerve.

Restoring our smile with natural looking teeth can give us the confidence we need but, first you want to ensure you speak with your dentist and surgeon first to understand the procedure and ask any questions you might have but to build trust with them. It will be a long dental procedure and knowing what to expect can help ease any stress or anxiety.       

If you’re interested in consulting with a dental professional about whether dental implants are the right fit for you, you can call us at  801-505-7125.

What You Need To Know About A Dental Crown and Cap

Have you been told you need a dental crown or cap but don’t know what it is? If you have, we’ve provided you with brief information on what it is and what you need to know about getting a dental crown. Learning more about your procedure can help ease the anxiety or stress of having a cap placed on your tooth.

What’s the Difference Between a Crown and Cap?

Nothing. They’re two different words for the same procedure. A dental crown is a more technical term whereas cap is more of an informal word. They are both interchangeably used when referring to the process of encasing your tooth. Crown or cap is when the visible part of the tooth is encased from the gum line and above. This dental procedure allows the dentist to salvage the tooth than have to extract it completely.

When is a Crown Needed?

How do you know you need a crown? There can be several reasons you might need to get a cap for your tooth. But if you’re in need of a cap, it can be that you need to

  • protect a weak tooth from decay or hold pieces of a cracked tooth.
  • restore a broken or damaged teeth.
  • support a tooth with a filling, if tooth can’t carry it.
  • hold a bridge in place.
  • improve on the cosmetic of the teeth.

It takes two dental visits to get a dental crown. During the first visit, your teeth will be examined and prepared if there is a need for a cap. X-rays will be taken of your teeth including the root to ensure there is no damage or further need of dental treatment. The dentist will numb the area to file your tooth down depending on the crown chosen or rebuild part of your tooth depending on the tooth decay. A temporary cap will be placed in the meantime. Temporary crowns are usually made of stainless steel or acrylic and hold in place with temporary cement.

On the second visit, your dentist will remove the temporary tooth checking the tooth and the permanent cap before placing it in. Once your dentist has verified and checked your tooth and cap, they will numb the area and permanently cement the crown down.    

What Types of Caps can I Choose From?

Take into consideration the type of crown you are going to select, even though appearance will be a deciding factor, keep in mind the durability of the material you are choosing. There are three significant materials used to build a permanent crown and, they are:

  • Ceramic – which is porcelain and can be adjusted to match your natural teeth color, however, they are quick to crackTreatment, Dental Crown and Cap or chip if you’re not too careful.
  • Metal Alloys – this could be gold, platinum, or non-precious metals. This material is both durable and compatible with your teeth meaning no damage is done to the tooth. The downside is they are visible whether in the front or back.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) – have a porcelain surface but a metal substructure. They are durable but still likely to chip or crack because of the porcelain.

Crowns are meant to last 5 to 15 years depending on how you care for it and the condition of the crown. Visiting your dentist for your annual check-ups is essential to the seeing the progression of your teeth and cap.
You want to ensure your teeth are healthy and don’t require further dental treatment. Getting a crown can be costly ranging from an average of $300 to $1700 for one crown.

One Low Wedding Fee: Teeth Whitening

Wedding season is on the way, and spring is the time to get the last minute check-ups and details all in order before the wedding. Planning the wedding is always the stressful part of the event itself from getting the venue, catering, flowers, the perfect wedding dress, photographer, just to name a few. The list is endless, and at the end of the day, you want to look your best for your spouse-to-be.

Part of looking your best is, having the right dress, the right hairdo, the proper accessories, and shoes. We tend to fixate on every little detail, and we want to look great, confident and smiling. We want to have photos that show us this and our smile is one of the details we tend to focus on.

Besides having the great smile, we want to have glossy-white teeth. And at The Center of Dental Professionals, we want to help you make this possible! But before you can start treatment for whitening your teeth, we want to ensure you take these steps to get the teeth you want and that they’re healthy.

1. Make an appointment with your dentist. You want to consult with your dentist first. You want to make sure your teeth are healthy before starting an intensive treatment on your teeth as it can damage your enamel if they are not healthy.

There are preparation steps that need to be taken for your safety such as evaluating and diagnosing your oral health. If dental problems are present, there will be a need to treat them before starting the process of whitening your teeth. During this visit, your dentist can advise you whether you’re eligible to whiten your teeth and what different options are both safe and effective.

If your teeth are not healthy, don’t get your teeth whitened. Don’t go home and try to whiten your teeth if your dentist didn’t do it. You will only be extending the damage of your teeth to further pain and dental problems like discoloration of teeth and losing teeth.

2. Let’s begin your treatment. Once you have had a full evaluation and diagnosis of your teeth and have been cleared, then consult with your dentist to see what treatment is right for your teeth. Even though your teeth are healthy, you want to make sure your teeth aren’t receiving an intense treatment that can damage your healthy teeth. There are various options to choose from such tray whitening to whitening strips to bleaching systems.    

During this process, you might experience discomfort, sensitive teeth and possibly irritation in your gums.

3. After treatment, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene. Just because you whiten your teeth does not mean your teeth are clean or healthy. On the contrary, after you’ve gone through the treatment, your teeth’s enamel will have become weaker. This means caring for your teeth is essential. Brushing twice a day and flossing is critical to protecting your teeth from cavity-causing bacteria, acid production caused by sugars in our mouth, and to help maintain your white teeth.

Just because your teeth have been whitened does not mean that they will remain white. Your teeth are now vulnerable so what you eat and drink can cause them to stain. There are foods and beverages you might want to restrain from having.

Foods such as

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Pomegranate
  • Red Wine

At The Center of Dental Professionals, we want to help you have the smile you want to see! Which is why our office is offering you a deal you can’t refuse.

If you’re a bride, you can get our one time offer of $149 up until June 30, 2018. Please note you will need to present a wedding announcement or documentation verifying your wedding date to get our offer.

Remember, whitening your teeth takes time to ensure your safety and teeth’s health. So, if you are interested in whitening your teeth, book an appointment with us today by calling  801-505-7125 to consult with our dentist.

*NOTE: Consultation and other dental treatment is not included in the offer.*

 

Orthodontics Treatment: Braces for One Low Fee

Orthodontic treatment is important to get when needed as it can result in a healthy smile and mouth, treatment remedying any irregularities found in the teeth and jaws such as braces. Braces are the most common orthodontic treatment to align teeth. Orthodontic treatment involving braces usually begins between the ages 8 and 14 even up into adulthood.  

When do you need braces and why should you get them?

Well, you need braces to align your teeth, that’s what they are used for. Getting braces as soon as there are signs of misalignment is critical to preventing further dental problems down the line. What indicates we need braces:

  • Crowding – when there’s not enough space for your teeth resulting in crooked teeth. The most common reason to get braces especially for kids.
  • Overbite – when there’s overlap of the front lower teeth by the upper teeth.
  • Crossbite –  is an abnormal bite where one or more teeth are at a buccal or lingual position than the opposing teeth. It’s a misalignment of the dental arches.
  • Underbite – is where all the upper teeth are behind the lower teeth.
  • Open Bite – is when front upper and lower teeth do not touch even when the mouth is closed.

Ensuring that these conditions don’t worsen is critical to our teeth and oral health. We don’t want to leave these dental and oral conditions left untreated since overtime; it can worsen and cause more dental harm. If left untreated, you can experience the following complications:

  • Oral hygiene
  • Plaque
  • Tooth decay
  • Tooth loss
  • Gum disease
  • Jaw problems
  • Chewing
  • Speech problems 

Not to mention there’s an increased risk of fracturing your front teeth and wearing your teeth out. We need our teeth for breaking down foods and for speaking. It plays a vital role in our overall health, so we need to take measures to prevent dental problems and maintain a healthy smile and healthy mouth.

New braces systems align teeth in a gentle, comfortable and faster possible way for the patient!

With new technologies and new treatment methods, orthodontic treatment involving braces has become more optional, comfortable, and with fewer adjustments and dental visits for the patient.

At The Center of Dental Professionals, we offer two brace systems our specialized dentists use to treat patients. They are the Damon System and Fastbraces, both of which align teeth but in a much gentle manner than traditional braces.

What’s the difference between the Damon System and Fastbraces?

Both of these brace systems are used to treat misalignment of the teeth in a faster way. However, the approach to straighten teeth is very different.

Damon System is a self-ligating brace that allows you to experience treatment without tightening since the need for elastic bands are eliminated. They were designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to clean. Treatment time for this bracing system is shorter than conventional braces.

Fastbraces is a system that is a non-extraction system. It uses an innovating triangular bracket and square shape wire to correct the position of root from the beginning of treatment. This is done through the combination of realigning the root and crown of the tooth simultaneously for a one-step approach to straighten teeth. Treatment time for this bracing system can last up to 3 months or 1 year.   

At our dental offices, we are offering one low fee for both bracketing systems. What’s the ONE LOW FEE? For $3999, you’ll get your orthodontic treatment with a monthly payment as low as $97.
