Comfortable Dentures in Wexford, PA

Dentures Can Invigorate Your Life

Losing teeth is often a natural part of life. Dentures may not seem like an appealing opportunity for many, but they can truly change your life. Dentures allow you to eat the foods you love and maintain your face shape, giving you a beautiful smile.

Learn how Dr. Gabriel can help you find dentures that suit your needs and lifestyle.

Types of Dentures

Full Dentures

If you’ve lost all your teeth or are having the last ones extracted, full dentures can give you a completely new smile. Your dentures will be custom-created to fit comfortably on your gums and look natural.

Partial Dentures

If you’ve lost a significant amount of teeth but still have some natural teeth left, partial dentures may be better for you. They’re made with hooks that attach to your natural teeth to keep them in place throughout the day.

Implant-Supported Dentures

A common complaint about dentures is that they wear out over time and become loose, causing them to feel unstable. Implant-supported dentures solve this problem by anchoring your denture to your jaw using dental implants.

Are Dentures Right for You?

You may be a candidate for dentures if:

  • You have lost all or most of your teeth
  • You want a beautiful and functional smile
  • Implant-supported dentures aren’t an option for you

If you’re interested in dentures for your smile, contact us at (724) 935-2100 to learn how Dr. Gabriel can help you. He’ll create a custom set of dentures for you for a comfortable and perfect fit.

How to Take Care of Your Dentures

Taking good care of your dentures helps them to last longer and feel better for you. To clean your dentures, remove your dentures and brush them at least once a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and denture cleaner. At night, soak your dentures in a denture cleaning solution.

To keep them clean throughout the day, take your dentures out and rinse them with water after eating. At your regular dental checkups, we’ll also thoroughly clean your dentures and make sure they’re in good shape.

What to Do if Your Denture Breaks

If your denture breaks, call our office at (724) 935-2100 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Gabriel. He can assess the state of your denture and determine if it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.

We recommend against trying to repair your denture at home. At-home repairs can cause more harm to your denture or to yourself. We know it can be difficult to go without your denture, but it’ll only be for a short amount of time.

Denture Replacements

All dentures eventually need replacement. Over time and with everyday use, they wear out and loosen. You’ll feel this beginning to happen when your dentures don’t stay in place for as long as they used to. They may slide around and make it difficult for you to eat and speak.

If your dentures have become loose, Dr. Gabriel can look at them and determine if you need a replacement. You can also replace your dentures if they’ve broken or don’t fit properly.
