Dentures

Tooth loss can be detrimental to your appearance, and it can also have a devastating impact on your oral health and ability to eat.

Dentures are custom-made appliances that can replace several missing teeth or an entire dental arch to restore your smile and confidence.

Drs. Danny O'Keefe and Jan O'Keefe Belote provide traditional and implant-supported dentures at their Flowood, MS, dental practice.

Here's How Dentures Can Complete Your Smile

Been a patient with FDC for 20 years now and have been highly satisfied with the dental work that I have received. I'm not saying that they're perfect in the entire time frame but I have to leave them a five star review overall. They have a friendly staff, short waiting time, very competent dentists and assistants. They file my insurance properly too! Yay! To summarize,  you can't go wrong with Family Dental Care as a dental care provider.

Can Dentures Help You? Candidacy Checklist

Anyone who is concerned about tooth damage or loss can be considered for full or partial dentures. This treatment option may be right for you if you have:

Advanced Tooth Loss

One missing tooth or several teeth can be successfully replaced with an implant-supported crown or a dental bridge. However, if you are missing multiple teeth in several spots in one or both jaws, partial dentures may be an appropriate solution for you.

Complete Tooth Loss

Patients who are edentulous (those who have lost all of their natural teeth) can reclaim their health and confidence with full dentures. Today's appliances are built using the most advanced materials to ensure natural-looking results.

Decayed or Damaged Teeth

Tooth damage or decay makes teeth weaker. In these cases, extracting and replacing natural teeth may be the only viable option. Patients who have sustained tooth loss due to extensive decay can benefit from dentures.

Loose Teeth

Gum disease attacks the supporting bone and gum tissue. Left untreated, this condition leads to loose teeth and sometimes tooth loss. Individuals who have lost several teeth due to periodontal disease can restore their smiles with dentures.

Treatment Timeline
Your Journey to a Complete Smile

Initial Consultation

The first step is scheduling an appointment with our Flowood dentists. During this visit, one of our doctors assesses your gums, jaw joints, and any remaining teeth. Digital x-rays are also taken to determine the extent of damage and plan your treatment.

Preparatory Procedures

In some instances, preparatory treatments such as bone grafts or tooth extractions may be necessary to give your smile a healthy foundation. If these procedures are necessary, they can be completed before you are fitted for dentures. If you are opting for an implant-supported restoration, your surgery will be performed four to six months before your dentures are created.

Impressions

Your dentist takes impressions of your gums and any remaining natural teeth. These are then used to create a working model of your new restoration.

Fabrication of Appliance

Your impressions are then sent to our partner dental lab. There, a skilled technician fabricates your new denture according to your unique smile. Our dentists work closely with the lab during this process to ensure the best outcomes.

Final Fitting

Once your new appliance has been created, we will schedule you for another appointment at our practice. One of our dentists will try in your denture and ensure that it fits properly. Any necessary adjustments are made.

Maintaining Your Oral Health
Tips for Denture Wearers

Recovery

After receiving their dentures, most patients go through a short adjustment period. It will take some time to become accustomed to your new appliance. However, you will quickly learn how to eat and speak comfortably and effectively. Our Flowood dentists recommend starting out with soft foods and incorporating more solid foods as your comfort level allows.

Aftercare

To properly maintain your new appliance, proper oral hygiene is essential. Be sure to brush your teeth and gums, and clean your prosthetic regularly. Whether you choose conventional dentures or implant-supported dentures, you will need to visit our dentists regularly for exams and cleanings. If you ever damage your restoration, bring it to our office for repairs.
