Ahh Smile Denture Application Types in Laredo, Texas and Zapata, Texas

Ahh Smile offers two types of denture applications – complete dentures and partial dentures. While the two offer a solution to missing teeth and surrounding tissue, patients might require a certain procedure depending on the nature of their issue. Thankfully, Ahh Smile denture application options accommodate every patient’s need.

Complete Dentures

Ahh Smile complete denture applications are typically “conventional” or “immediate.” Conventional complete dentures are made after the teeth has been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal. This application is typically ready for placement in the mouth anywhere from 8 weeks to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed. Opposed to conventional complete dentures, immediate denture applications are made before the tooth are extracted and are ready for positioning immediately after the teeth are removed. This means that the patient does not have to spend anytime without teeth during the healing period. Due to the shrinkage of gums, however, immediate dentures might require additional adjustments and are at times considered only temporary solutions.

Partial Dentures
Ahh Smile also offers partial denture applications for patients with some remaining natural teeth. Partial denture procedures consist of replacing teeth attached to a plastic base that is connected by metal and holds the denture in place inside the mouth. Fixed bridges replace one or more teeth by placing crowns on the teeth, and continuing to insert artificial teeth to them. Completed partial dentures ultimately fill in the spaces created by missing teeth and simultaneously prevent the existing teeth from changing position. Partial dentures are removable and have a natural-looking finish to them.

While typically applied to elderly patients, Ahh Smile denture applications can serve patients of any age that have lost some or all of their teeth.

How Are Ahh Smile Denture Applications Made and Performed?

Ahh Smile denture applications in Laredo, Texas and Zapata, Texas are made through a process that typically lasts several weeks. Once we determine whether the patient needs a complete denture application or a partial denture application, our team of dentists and professionals make a complete impression of the patient’s jaw, measuring how both jaws relate and how much space is between them. Once this segment is complete, Ahh Smile creates models of the shape and position of the denture for the patient to try. These dentures serve as trials that are continuously tested and evaluated prior to the final denture. The denture application is completed as the final denture is casted and adjusted.

Wearing Ahh Smile Dentures

While a denture applications can be an entirely new experience and patients might take time getting used to them, Ahh Smile dentures are a great solution to missing teeth. After the procedures, patients are known to see temporary changes in their speaking and eating habits. Ultimately, however, patients will get accustomed to biting, chewing, and digesting their food. While the dentures can also cause an unfamiliar feeling during the first two weeks as the patient is mandated to wearing the denture during sleep, denture applications are permanently removable and will not interfere with sleeping habits. Additionally, removing the dentures for certain hours throughout the day and at night can also be healthy for gum tissue as it allows it to rest and be cleansed by the tongue and saliva, ultimately improving gum health.
