Visit Culp Dental in Rock Hill, SC for dentures

Are you self-conscious about your smile? Consider getting dental implants or dentures from Culp Dental, PA. Our Rock Hill, South Carolina dental clinic specializes in cosmetic dentistry and can help you with denture maintenance.

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace your missing teeth. If you lose all or most of your natural teeth due to decay, gum disease or injury, replacing missing teeth is vital for the health and appearance of your mouth. Losing your teeth makes it difficult to eat and speak, and your facial muscles can atrophy, making you look older. Dentures:

  • Help you eat and speak better
  • Improve your facial appearance
  • Look like your natural teeth
Most people won’t even know you wear dentures, so trust Rock Hill’s skilled dentists with your procedure.

What are the different types of dentures?

  • Conventional or full removable dentures are made and placed in your mouth after any remaining teeth are removed and the tissues have healed.
  • Immediate removable dentures are placed the same day that your remaining teeth are removed. Measurements and models of your jaw are made during a preliminary visit so you are not without teeth during the healing period. Your dentures may need to be modified after your jaw has healed.
  • Implant-retained/Implant-supported dentures can be fabricated to “snap” onto dental implants to improve support and retention. This type of prosthesis is valuable when the supporting structures in the mouth are inadequate to maintain a stable denture.

Are dentures comfortable?

Dentures take some getting used to. After a few weeks, you become accustomed to them. As the muscles of your tongue and cheeks learn to keep the dentures in place, the minor irritation and soreness will go away. You can always schedule a follow-up visit with Culp Dental. We’ll check for fit issues and make necessary adjustments. Call our Rock Hill, SC dental clinic today!

Are you partial to the dentists at Culp Dental?

In addition to providing Rock Hill, SC with dentures and cosmetic dentistry services, we also create partials. You can contact us at 803-324-2921 to schedule your consultation.

What are partials (removable partial dentures)?

Partials are removable dental appliances that function similarly to dentures. If your jaw still has multiple good teeth, replace just the missing ones with partials. A partial will use the remaining teeth as support but is not permanently placed in the mouth. It is a prosthesis that you can insert in the morning and remove at night.

How do I take care of my dentures or partials?

How do I take care of my dentures or partials?

You need to practice good dental hygiene when you have dentures and/or partials. This means flossing and brushing:

  • Any remaining teeth
  • Your tongue and gums
  • The roof of your mouth
Our Rock Hill, SC dental clinic recommends flossing and brushing every morning – before inserting your dentures and/or partials. This helps remove plaque and stimulate circulation in your mouth tissues. It also removes food particles and prevents staining. Ask the professionals at Culp Dental about recommended cleaning and storage procedures, as well as appropriate cleansers and adhesives. Be sure to keep up with your regular dental checkups, too!
