Something Worse Than Dentures
If you are reading this and you need dentures, you might think there is nothing worse. There is something worse — needing dentures and never getting them. Plain and simple, we need teeth, whether they are the set we were born with or ones that were specially designed for us. We need teeth to chew, to speak clearly, to smile and to feel good about ourselves. If you are missing all or most of your teeth, dentures will give you back a fully functional mouth. Dentures from the Sacramento office of the Marconi Dental Group will make you look younger, help preserve the shape of your face and give you a better smile than you’ve had in years, if not your whole life.
The first step to getting your smile back with either full or partial dentures begins with a visit to the Sacramento office of the Marconi Dental Group. Our compassionate staff will discuss the best approach for you. A good fit is very important, so careful measurements will be taken of your mouth, gums and jaw. Then you’ll make the choices of color and style. Our staff will guide you through this process — we know the results are important to you.
Your gums will require a period of healing after any teeth are removed. It is normal for gums to take from four to eight weeks to heal. If you opt for immediate dentures, they will be ordered before the removal of your teeth and will be ready when you need them. The only downside to immediate dentures is that they may need some future rebuilding to adjust to the altered shape of your gums.
Conventional dentures are your other option. This process may require more patience on your part because it means going without teeth until your gums are completely healed. When this relatively short period is over, more precise measurements are taken of your gums and then you are ready for your keenly anticipated new and improved teeth.
Are you now home free with your brand new smile? Well, you will need a bit of time to become acquainted with your dentures, but we are here to help with any small tweaks. Please make your appointment today to discuss your denture options with Sacramento’s Marconi Dental Group. In a short time you’ll be back to speaking with conviction, eating with gusto and smiling with joy.
