If you’re missing most or all of your natural teeth due to severe oral health issues or as a result of major dental trauma, a set of dentures from Dr. Murphy may be the best option for you.
With a set of custom-fitted dentures from Murphy Dental Group, PLLC, you can restore your smile, your bite, and your self-confidence in just a few appointments over the span of several weeks. Learn more below, or contact us now to schedule a denture fitting.
Wondering how the denture fitting process works? After you’ve had any necessary teeth extracted, you’ll schedule a consultation with Dr. Murphy. He will take impressions of your gums, and make a mold of your bite.
Then, a dental lab will use this information to make a set of test dentures. You’ll be sent home with a temporary set of dentures, and you’ll come back when your first set of test dentures arrives at our office.
Next, Dr. Murphy will check the fit of your test denture, note any adjustments that need to be made, and send it back to the dental lab. This process may be repeated several times, until your dentures fit perfectly.
Once the fit is perfect, your final set of dentures will be sent to our office. You’ll come in to pick them up and get instructions on their care from Dr. Murphy. Then, you’ll walk out of our office with a brand new smile.
Dentures do require some special care. You need to rinse your dentures and gums off after every meal to prevent plaque buildup. You should also brush your gums and dentures once per day to keep them clean. At night, your dentures will need to be removed, and soaked in denture cleaner. Denture cleaner keeps your dentures from drying out, and also helps kill bacteria and cleans your dentures.
Dr. Murphy will provide you a set of comprehensive instructions after you’ve been fitted for a set of dentures, which you should follow to keep your dentures and your mouth healthy.
At our office, Dr. Murphy and our team of oral care professionals can help you extract a painful or damaged tooth. In addition, as an experienced restorative dentist, Dr. Murphy can help you replace an extracted tooth with a dental implant, a bridge, or partial/full dentures.
