Find out if dentures could give you back that healthy smile.

Want to find out if getting dentures from your Wauwatosa, WI dentist Dr. James Pechloff is the right choice for you? Then here are some Dentures things to consider before diving right into this dental restoration.

Who should consider getting dentures?

Dentures can be a great option for anyone who has lost most or all of their teeth and many patients dealing with extensive tooth loss could benefit from getting dentures. Depending on whether you still have healthy natural teeth or not, we will determine whether partial or complete dentures are the best restoration for you.

One thing your Wauwatosa dentist will also need to consider is the current state of your teeth and gums. Your smile should be free of decay or disease. If we find cavities or gum disease these issues will need to be treated before dentures can be placed.

Also, ideal candidates should be non-smokers and dedicated to properly caring for their dentures. This means brushing and cleaning dentures regularly and making sure to be gentle with them. Before you get your dentures your dentist in Wauwatosa, WI will sit down and discuss how to properly care for your dentures at home.

What dentures are right for me?

When you come in for your consultation we will discuss your smile goals, your habits, lifestyle and other factors that could help us determine which dentures will help you achieve the perfect smile. There are different kinds of dentures available in Wauwatosa including,

  • Full dentures: designed for those who are missing all of their teeth.
  • Partial dentures: for those patients only missing some of their teeth.
  • Implant-supported dentures: for those patients looking for a permanent way to support dentures. The implants are placed into the jawbone where they fuse together to become one.
  • Immediate dentures: for those patients looking to get new teeth in the same day as their extractions.

If dentures sounds like the best dental option for you, then it’s time to schedule a consultation with us today. Our goal is to give you a healthy smile to be proud of.
