Dentures Jacksonville FL | Baymeadows Dentist


Dentures in Baymeadows of Jacksonville, FL

Most folks are first introduced to dentures as a child when they catch a Grandparent take one out of their mouth or perhaps find one sitting in a glass of water. A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth that has been around since before George Washington. While for some people the mere thought of a denture may seem horrific, we have seen hundreds of lives changed for the better with a properly fitting denture. Dentures today can not only be functional, but in many cases can also be a total cosmetic makeover. When teeth are lost, self-esteem and overall health can be lost as well. Dentures allow people to regain their appearance and maintain a proper diet. Today losing your teeth doesn't always mean you have to end with a removable denture. With the addition of Dental implants you can now replace a Denture with a Fixed Prosthetic or with what is called a Hybrid Denture. Dr. Rios has been helping patients' regain their confidence with Dentures in Jacksonville since he worked at Argyle Denture Center back in 2000.

Types of Dentures

Understanding the different types of Dentures can be mind boggling while the cost difference can be mind blowing. Dentures are not all the same. There are full dentures, partial dentures, fixed implant supported over dentures and removable implant supported dentures. There are also many different types of replacement teeth from different manufactures with some looking much more natural than others. Regardless of which type of denture you choose, at Baymeadows Park Dental, we collaborate with only the best labs who use quality materials and excellent craftsmanship. Dr. Rios and our team will take the time to evaluate your mouth and ideal tooth appearance in order to select the best tooth for you’re your unique needs. We also perform unlimited wax try ins so you can provide the final approval on appearance in your custom made Denture by Dr. Rios and our local Jacksonville Denture lab.

Getting Dentures at Baymeadows Park Dental

The denture process for a best fitting denture with Dr. Rios starts with a full evaluation at our Southside of Jacksonville dental office. A quality set of impressions are taken, followed by a try-in appointments and bite check. Once the customization is perfected, the denture is processed for final delivery. This process can take one to several weeks depending on appointment coordination. In special cases a Denture can be completed in a day with lab coordination.

Dental Check-Up & Exams

We look forward to helping you improve the appearance of your smile and oral health at its optimal levels.

Adjusting to Eating

While it might be difficult to eat foods like corn on the cob, after an initial period of adjustment, most denture patients are able to enjoy a wide variety of food. The bite force is less than 50% of natural teeth, so some things may take a little longer to eat. An upgrade to an implant-supported denture allows the bite force to feel more similar to natural teeth.

Denture Care

Dentures should be taken out every night before going to bed. They should be brushed with water and a mild detergent, and then soaked in water or a denture cleaning liquid overnight to keep the denture fresh and clean.

Even if you have a full set of dentures, it's important to keep your gums and tongue clean. Be sure to use a soft-bristled brush to gently clean your gums and tongue every day.

If by chance your dentures do break, please contact our Jacksonville dental practice and schedule an appointment with Dr. Rios as soon as possible. Broken dentures that don't fit properly can cause irritation to your gums and mouth. Also, remember to continue scheduling regular dental checkups every six months to make sure that your smile stays healthy for many years to come.

Everyone here is always pleasant and efficient in getting me in and out for my appointments. Dawn cleans my teeth with care and is very thorough with my cleanings. Dr. Rios is always quick to get in and look at my teeth after my cleaning is finished so that I can get on with my day without too much downtime. I never feel pressured by their recommendations and never feel like they're trying to sell me products or services I don't really need. Great place with great people, definitely recommend!

I had a super friendly experience attending a cleaning visit here. The Dr. and his assistant used a sound combination of technology and expertise to thoroughly go through my mouth. The pictures were scary, but the advice was priceless. I wish I had visited this office earlier.
