Wearing false teeth can be a large adjustment for multiple people. If you’ve been fitted for false teeth recently, don’t worry; the staff at York Dental Group in York, South Carolina, has assembled this post for you to assist you as you ease into this new transition.
If you are new to sporting dentures, your dentist might recommend or prescribe some meds for you to take. During the first couple of weeks of wearing false teeth, your mouth might need to adjust to the change; painkillers might be suitable during this time, depending on the suggestion of your dentist. Other medicines they may prescribe include antifungal agents and oral wash for ensuring that your oral cavity and dentures are clean.
While most people don’t think of dentures and surgery together, the truth is that sometimes surgery is necessary to fit patients for dentures. If your remaining teeth are in poor condition, Dr. Robert Renner will extricate them to make way for the false teeth. They may also perform surgical procedures to decrease bone tissue and soft gum tissue if they would interfere with the function of the false teeth. Other denture-related operations include aveloplasties, vestibular surgical procedures and dental implanting, all to prep the oral cavity to receive false teeth.
You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Robert Renner and the York Dental Group staff by calling 803-684-2366 or by stopping into their York, South Carolina, office.
