Bloomfield Hills, MI
Sometimes in the course of life it becomes necessary to take special measures to maintain good oral health. Such can be the case when determining whether to start wearing dentures. Dentures can restore the ability to eat foods that have been off limits due to oral pain or missing teeth. They can give you a naturally beautiful smile, and they can help you maintain a more confident outlook.

What Are Dentures?
Dentures are removable dental pieces that replace natural teeth. There are generally three types of dentures.
- Conventional dentures that are placed in the mouth once all teeth have been removed and the mouth has healed.
- Immediate dentures that are placed in the mouth on the same day the teeth have been removed.
- Overdentures that are placed over the natural teeth.
Each type of denture has its own benefits. Conventional dentures are like a whole new set of teeth that are made to fit your mouth once it has healed from the removal of the natural teeth. Immediate dentures allow a patient to never be without teeth, though the dentures will likely have to be refit once the mouth has healed. Overdentures allow the dentures to be placed over the natural teeth, providing stability and support for the dentures.
Your dentist can help you choose which type of dentures are right for you.
How Will I Adjust?
When you first get dentures it can feel strange for a short period or time. You may experience excess saliva, minor soreness, and the feeling that your dentures are loose. Your mouth will adjust the longer you wear them. If the dentures need adjusted in order to maintain a more comfortable fit, your dentist can help.
