Explore the world of dentures with us and discover the difference that our best-in-industry expertise and individual attention to detail can make.

Dentures: Your Comprehensive Overview

Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. At Maryland Prosthodontic Associates, we offer two main types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures in Baltimore & Columbia

Complete Dentures: A Total Restoration

Complete dentures come into play when all-natural teeth in an arch are missing. We provide two types of complete dentures: conventional and immediate. The conventional approach involves crafting dentures after teeth removal, allowing the gum tissue to heal over 4 to 6 weeks. In contrast, immediate dentures are prepared in advance and placed immediately after tooth extraction, eliminating the need for patients to be without teeth during the healing period. Adjustments are necessary as the tissues shrink and heal to ensure the perfect fit you need for lasting ease and comfort.

Partial Dentures: Preserving Your Natural Smile

Partial dentures are the ideal solution when some natural teeth remain. Not only do they fill in the gaps left by missing teeth, but they also prevent the remaining teeth from shifting, maintaining the integrity of your smile.

These custom-crafted prosthetics offer both functionality and finely tuned aesthetics, providing a comfortable and secure fit.

Ongoing Maintenance: Keeping Your New Smile

Regardless of the type of dentures in Baltimore you select, know that high-quality dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years. However, they may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear. This is normal. At Maryland Prosthodontic Associates, we ensure you learn all the facts and are well-prepared for the realities of maintaining your dentures – for life.

Are You Considering Dentures for Enhanced Appearance and Improved Functionality?

Dentures at Maryland Prosthodontic Associates aren't just prosthetics; they're crafted to closely resemble your natural teeth, seamlessly blending with your smile. Our prosthodontic specialists pay meticulous attention to detail, ensuring that your dentures not only restore function but also enhance the aesthetics of your smile.

Whether you require complete or partial dentures, the benefits extend beyond appearance. Dentures play a crucial role in improving chewing, speech, and digestion, providing you with the confidence to enjoy the fulfilling and comfortable life you so richly deserve.

Getting Your Dentures: A Step-by-Step Guide

Trust the Process

Receiving your dentures will involve several appointments spread over several weeks. Our highly skilled professionals take precise impressions and measurements to create a custom denture that perfectly fits your unique oral structure. Know that multiple appointments may be necessary to ensure the proper shape, color, and fit – but we will make every effort to keep these minimal. During the final appointment, your dentist will make meticulous adjustments to guarantee a natural and comfortable fit

Don’t Fear the Adjustment Period

It's entirely normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and potential speech and chewing difficulties initially. However, rest assured that these discomforts will subside as your muscles and tissues adapt to the new dentures.
