If you’ve suffered from multiple tooth loss, it can severely impair the function and appearance of your mouth. In a situation like this, Dr. Timothy B. Chatterley might recommend extracting any remaining teeth and starting the process of fitting you for removable dentures.
It might be that you might only need to have your upper teeth or lower teeth replaced by dentures. However, in most cases, both sets of teeth need eventual extraction and replacement. So, many people will opt to have both sets of teeth prepared at the same time.
After the tooth extraction, your gums will be sutured. Then, Dr. Timothy B. Chatterley will make an impression of the structure of your gums. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide for crafting your custom dentures.
Your dentures will be custom fit by Dr. Timothy B. Chatterley and crafted in a dental lab to match the unique shape of your mouth. However, many denture wearers like to use denture adhesive for an extra-secure hold. Denture adhesive can also help block out stray food particles from getting between the base of the dentures and your gums.
