Dentures & Partials

What Are Dentures & Partials

What are Dentures & Partials?

A partial or full denture is ideal for replacing missing dentition in the mouth. Partials are better suited to patients who still have a lot of their own healthy teeth, but are missing just enough to warrant a removable prosthesis. A full denture is helpful in replacing an entire arch of missing teeth. Patients with severely advanced gum disease will often benefit from a denture.

Why are Dentures & Partials needed?

A partial denture is ideal for patients who have had a lot of their own natural teeth removed, but who still have enough healthy teeth that a full denture is not the right choice. Full dentures are great for improving the look and quality of your smile. Dentures are custom made and easy to wear, and they can normally last for about seven years before replacement is recommended. Not only do dentures help to improve the look of your smile, but they help with functionality as well.

Who is a candidate for Dentures & Partials?

Having an examination and consultation with you can help to determine if you might need a denture. In some cases, we’ll recommend having some of your remaining teeth extracted, typically if they are severely decayed or loose due to gum disease. Dentures can help to improve the way that you eat and chew your favorite foods. If you have implants, a custom made denture can be made to snap over the implants.

What happens during the process for Dentures & Partials?

Impressions are taken first to make your new denture. You will come in for a few visits to improve the fit and feel of the new prosthesis. It sometimes takes a few weeks to a couple of months to get the fit of the denture just right. Your denture will need to be removed every night to clean and soak it. This helps to remove bacteria and odor-causing germs. You’ll need to have the appliance replaced once it shows signs of wear.

Are There Alternatives To Dentures?

A common question that patients will ask us is if there are any alternatives that patients can pursue instead of with dentures. Dr. Mitul Amin takes a moment to discuss some additional options patients can consider.

Amin Salvi Dental
Is Now Open!

The last few months have been challenging for all of us. We have missed seeing you, chatting with you, sharing stories with you and laughing with you. We are SO excited to finally be able to invite you back to our office!

As you already know, Amin Salvi Dental does not cut corners on safety and technology. We have always prided ourselves in exceeding the recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for infection control measures. During this closure, we decided to go above and beyond that by adding further safety measures, which have been outlined below. The comfort and safety of our patients, of our team members, and of our own families remain our top priority.

  • All essential paperwork (including a COVID-19 screening form) along with financial agreements are to be done prior to your appointment. We will be texting and emailing the links for the forms to be filled out at home or on your mobile device. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or feel ill, please reschedule your appointment and call your physician.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in the car and text or call the office. We will inform you when to enter the office so we can maintain social distancing protocols
  • When entering the office, it is mandatory to wear a mask or face covering. Although county guidelines are not as strict, we maintain this requirement for the safety of everyone. Due to a worldwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) we cannot provide masks. Should you require one, we will charge you $1 for the mask.
  • Patients must arrive to their appointment alone without family/friends. A single guardian will be allowed for minors, elderly and those with special needs or requirements.
  • We will be taking your temperature when arriving to our office and recording this in your records.

Here are a few additional things we are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy:

  • We have installed air purification systems in the main operatories
  • We have installed sneeze guards at the check-in and check-out areas. We request that when you are required to talk to the front desk administration, you stand behind those.
  • Before appointments, we will use a medical peroxide pre-rinse which has been proven to help kill virus particles

We will have new scheduling guidelines

You will be hearing from us shortly as we are rescheduling routine hygiene and treatment for everyone. As you can imagine, we have a large backlog of cancelled appointments so we appreciate your patience through this process.

If you have any immediate concerns, we request not to call the office but text us at the office number or email us at office.corona@aminsalvidental.com.

Due to the new protocols for physical distancing in the office, we may have limited availability of appointments. Due to this we require a minimum 48 hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. This allows other patients, who have been waiting, to be seen. Please be courteous to others.

For many procedures we will also be requiring a reservation fee in advance. This fee will be applied to your deductible or co-pay for the treatment and is not an additional fee of any kind.

We look forward to seeing all of you and catching up on the activities you have been doing to keep busy during this downtime!
