Over 41 million Americans wear dentures every day!
During your first visit, Dr. Lennard will sit down with you to understand your lifestyle, dental goals, and oral health. Together, you will explore all possible treatment options and determine which will suit you best. If you both agree on moving forward with dentures, Dr. Lennard will create a detailed treatment plan for you that outlines all the steps and necessary appointments. We’ll also schedule your next visit with you before you leave.
The next time we see you, we will be preparing your mouth for your dentures. Depending on which type of prosthetic you will be receiving, we may need to extract a few remaining teeth. Then you will be sent home to heal and we’ll have you back to take impressions at a later date. If you do not need to have any teeth extracted, Dr. Lennard will simply take impressions of your mouth which will be sent to our partner dental lab where your prosthetic will be custom-crafted.
Once your dentures have been created and your mouth has had time to heal after any necessary extractions, you will return for your fitting appointment! We will simply place your new smile in your mouth and check to make sure it is sitting comfortably and looks seamless. Adjustments can be made to alter the feel and look, so if you feel uncomfortable or are unhappy with the way anything looks, don’t hesitate to let us know so we can make it right for you!
Give us a call as soon as you’ve regained control of your situation. We can help determine the severity of your dental injury, and get you in our office as soon as possible for prompt emergency care.
Partial dentures are a dental appliance that can replace one to many missing teeth after tooth loss of extraction. They are made to work alongside your remaining healthy teeth and offer stability, comfort, and support while fitting into your bite. Whether you’ve lost teeth due to gum disease, an accident, or severe decay, a partial denture can help you get your smile back!
A full denture is a removable appliance that replaces all the teeth in the top or bottom of your mouth. They consist of teeth and a gum colored base, together which form an aesthetic and functional appliance. When making a full denture we make every effort to recreate your natural smile, from shade, to tooth shape, to advanced characterization, so you have a prosthetic that looks natural and lifelike to your unique mouth.
Snap-on dentures are dentures that solve the most common complaint of traditional dentures, retention. They do this by utilizing implants to secure the denture in place so that you don’t have to worry about dislodgment while eating, speaking, or any other daily tasks.
They simply snap onto dental implants which will securely and comfortably hold them in place throughout the day while still allowing you to easily take them out when needed. Snap-On Dentures may be a good option for you if you're looking for something that's easy to clean, durable, comfortable, and eliminates the worry of having a denture that won’t stay in place.
The all-on-four hybrid denture is a great option for patients who have lost most or all their teeth and are looking for a natural-looking permanent solution. The procedure consists of placing four or more implants in the mouth, these implants then act as supports for a ceramic fixed bridge that replaces your missing teeth. The greatest benefit of all-on-four hybrid dentures is that their support is derived from the implants placed in the bone, so when eating and using the teeth they feel like natural teeth with no pressure being placed on the gum tissue like a traditional denture.
All-on-four dentures look completely natural and will never shift or move since they are held in place rigidly with dental implants. This allows you to smile, laugh, and speak with confidence. When creating these prosthetics we use a complex array of digital solutions to plan and design the entire process, so that your final teeth look natural, beautiful, and fit your unique facial profile
Dentures not only restore your oral health, but can also help you appear more youthful.
First, recover your tooth. Grab it by the top (the crown) not the bottom (the root), as this will ensure you don’t damage the tooth further. You can rinse it with warm water, if necessary. Then, you’ll need to replace it in the socket or put it into a container of cold milk to keep it moist until you come in to see the dentist.
Don’t spend too much time trying to treat pain and discomfort. This is an extremely serious dental emergency, and your tooth must be replaced and splinted by your dentist within 1-2 hours to save it. Give us a call right away for immediate instructions, and come see our team ASAP to get the help you need now.
If possible, recover your dental work and put it in a plastic bag or container that you can bring with you to your appointment. Next, call us right away to schedule that appointment.
This is a serious dental emergency because losing a piece of dental work exposes vulnerable parts of your tooth to bacteria, which can cause infection, further decay or damage, and other complications. Get a same-day appointment, and you can restore your smile with a new filling, crown, or other restorative dental work.
A severe toothache that lasts 1-2 days or longer usually indicates a tooth infection, which can be a very serious dental emergency. You may need root canal therapy to restore your tooth and prevent it from dying.
Call us immediately to schedule an appointment. Until that appointment, you can use Orajel or a similar topical numbing product to numb the tooth, or take over-the-counter pain relievers. Applying an ice pack may also help with your discomfort until you can get treatment for your condition.
Even if the damage seems minor, call us for a same-day emergency appointment. Sometimes it’s difficult to know the severity of a chip, break or crack without a professional dental exam. A broken or cracked tooth can easily become infected if it’s not treated quickly. This can cause further and unnecessary complications.
Call us and come see our team as soon as you can. Your dentist will examine the tooth and determine the extent of the damage. From there, they can offer their best recommendations to repair and protect your smile.
A loose tooth after a dental injury is a serious emergency. Without proper care, the nerves supporting your tooth may die, or the tooth may fall out of your mouth entirely. You need to call our team immediately for a same-day appointment.
Once you’ve scheduled your appointment, avoid touching the loose tooth with your tongue or fingers. The less you move it around, the better. Once you get to our office, your dentist will splint and stabilize the tooth by attaching it to the adjacent teeth. This allows it to heal and re-attach to your gums.
If left untreated, a tooth infection can spread to other parts of your body.
