At Doha Dental, we have spent years learning, researching and acquiring the necessary knowledge and expertise and will not suggest dentures until after a thorough exam of your mouth. There are various reasons for needing dentures, including extensive tooth decay, root canal not being a viable option, or a sports injury or auto accident, and the experts at our Doha dental practice will only recommend dentures when absolutely necessary. A denture is a removable appliance replacing some or all of the teeth that are missing in a dental arch. Partial dentures are used when you still have some of your natural teeth and full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. With our goal being to help our patients function as active, healthy adults, not only can tooth loss be considerably improved with dentures but they boost self-confidence and appearance.
Whether you need full or partial dentures, our Doha dental practice does its best to make sure you don’t have to be without teeth during your healing period. Immediate dentures have been made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed and a conventional denture is ready to be placed inside the mouth about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed and when the gum tissue healing process has begun. Over several appointments, the development process of the denture takes about three to six weeks. Once we have determined what type of appliance is best for you, precise measurements will be taken, as well as a series of impressions of your jaw. In the exact shape and position of the dentures, models, wax forms, and plastic patterns will be made from these impressions. You will try this model on several times and the denture will be evaluated for color, shape, and proper fit before the final denture is cast. Our Doha dental practice also offers a non-metal denture choice called flexible dentures which some patients find a more appealing option.
Plainly speaking, if you need dentures then you shouldn’t hesitate to get them, and with all the modern advancements being made in denture technology, dentures don’t have the bad reputation they used to. Our Doha dental practice offers dentures in many shapes and shades and, with our expertise you can even design a custom smile. With today’s dentures, they can be so natural looking that no one has to know you’re wearing them and at Doha dental, we think that’s the way it should be.
