Consider Complete Dentures for Your Next Dental Move

Posted .

Have you recently had teeth damaged because of long-term oral health issues such as tooth decay, cavities, chronic periodontal disease, or other dental problems? Many of your teeth can be lost over time as a result of these oral issues. Other alterations include changing your smile, the overall function of your mouth, and even affecting your confidence when you go out.

Fix these problems by getting your teeth fit with dentures! This removable dental appliance is designed to replicate the appearance of your natural smile, while restoring your regular oral functions such eating, chewing, and speaking.

Our dental professionals here at Adkins Dentistry want you to have your best smile and be able to speak and eat functionally. The first step you need to take is visit our dental office in New Bern, North Carolina. At your appointment, Dr. Bradley Adkins may then recommend extracting remaining teeth to begin the process of fitting you for dentures. After your remaining teeth are removed, your gums are sutured closed.

Your dentist will then create an impression of your gums. They will be sent to a dental lab with technicians who will make your new set of complete dentures! While your gum tissues heal, Dr. Bradley Adkins may provide you with anti-inflammatory medication and/or a prescription to help manage any pain or discomfort. An antibiotics prescription for a course of treatment may also be provided if your gums suffer from an infection.

After they are sent to our office, we will ensure they fit comfortably and our team will provide you with the necessary aftercare instructions to make sure your gums heal correctly. Call our New Bern, North Carolina, office today by contacting Adkins Dentistry at 252-633-2876 today for an appointment or consultation. Get your best smile with complete dentures today!
