Dentures can change the lives of patients who have gone years keeping their mouths closed because they didn’t have an attractive smile. These replacement teeth enable patients to be themselves with confidence. They also help patients who have no teeth or cavity-filled teeth to enjoy food again. Learning to live with artificial teeth takes a little bit of time and a lot of patience, but it is well worth it in the end.
This option allows patients to have all of their teeth pulled and walk out of the dentist’s office the same day with a brand new smile. One of the reasons this option works so well is that the mouth is measured before the dental work begins so that any swelling or healing that takes place will not affect the long-term fit of the dental plates.
Some patients opt to wait until healing is complete and all swelling is gone before they are fitted for replacement teeth. The good news is that patients can choose which option is best for them before the procedure even begins.
Taking Care of Dental Plates
Taking care of artificial teeth is easy yet can have disastrous results when not put into practice. Dental plates are fragile and can break when dropped. That is why it is a good idea to put a towel in the sink before handling replacement teeth. That way, if dropped, they have a soft surface on which to fall.
Other ways to take care of modern dental replacements include brushing them and soaking them when removed at night. There are special brushes for dental plates. As with regular teeth, food can get in between the artificial teeth, so it is important to clean them each day. It is important to use products specifically meant for artificial teeth, as they are different from natural teeth.
Getting Rid of the Fear of Wearing False Teeth
Many people don’t realize how much artificial replacement teeth have improved over the years. For one thing, technology has helped to secure the plates so that patients can talk and eat with confidence. In most replacement situations, there are no more clicking noises or embarrassing slipping of the dental plates.
Not only do false teeth look better than ever, but they function better than ever as well. Usually, when slipping occurs, it is the bottom teeth that slip. Today, patients can choose to have mini dental implants installed so that the bottom teeth won’t slip. We will be happy to address all of your concerns and answer all of your questions.

We have known Dr. Paul for over 15 years. He is truly a kind patient oriented dentist. He's always concerned about quality care and is very sensitive to his patients needs and concerns. We highly recommend him as a family dentist. His staff possesses the same qualities. They are outstanding also. Dr. Paul is a great person.

I have nothing but WONDERFUL things to say about Dr. Lanzisera and his entire staff! Dr. Lanzisera is a very ethical dentist. He is thorough, but he does not over identify issues...if there is a concern that needs to be addressed...he addresses it. I have been a patient of Dr. Lanzisera for many years and I have always been very comfortable recommending him to others. The office atmosphere is consistently positive. It is obvious that everyone enjoys working in this friendly and professional environment.

We were referred by a friend to Dr. Lanzisera over 10 years ago when my son needed a cavity filled and the family dentist we went to made him cry and told us to go to a specialist. Dr. "Paul" was wonderful...he had no problem talking to and working with my kids and now they are almost adults and still not crying when they go see him. Dr. Lanzisera is kind and trustworthy, easy to talk to and work with - I hope he never retires! Look no further for a great dentist for your entire family.

I am a long time patient of Dr. Lanzisera because each visit to his office includes interaction with a pleasant and highly professional staff as well as his excellent and personal attention. During a recent crown replacement, the temporary felt so natural it wasn't noticed. The permanent crown as usual is a natural fit. Thank you Dr. and Co.

Paul has been my dentist for many years. He and his staff are caring and experienced. My experience with his hygienists is always the best. Paul's years as a dentist really shows in his work. One time I came in with a difficult broken crown (from another dentist) and he was able to build a base from very little to work with, for a new crown. It's been 6 years with that crown and it's been great. Thanks!
