Compromised teeth can be the result of long-term problems such as chronic periodontal disease, cavities, tooth decay, or other causes. Due to these problems, multiple teeth can be lost over the years, altering the appearance of your smile, the overall function of your mouth, and even damaging your confidence.
Dr. Morgan and our dental team here in Richlands, North Carolina, want you to have the full functionality of your mouth and the look you want for a better smile. After examining your teeth, we may recommend extracting remaining teeth to start the process of fitting you for a complete denture. This removable dental appliance is designed to replicate the presence and appearance of your original smile, restoring your proper oral function.
For this process to happen, remaining teeth will need to be removed and your gums sutured. An impression of your gums will be made and sent to a dental lab where technicians will create your dentures. While your gum tissues heal, Dr. Morgan may provide you with a pain prescription and/or anti-inflammatory medication to help you remain comfortable. If your gums suffer from a severe infection, he might also include an antibiotics prescription for a course of treatment.
After you have received your new set of dentures, Dr. Morgan will provide you with the necessary aftercare instructions to help your gums heal and fit comfortably with the dentures.
