Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and restore oral function. Complete dentures replace all the teeth in the upper or lower arch, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain and require filling the gaps. These prosthetic devices are typically made from acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal, offering a natural appearance and improved chewing and speaking abilities.
At Ivette Guillermo D.M.D., we have dentures custom fitted to the patient's mouth and can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance. They provide a cost-effective solution for individuals with missing teeth, enhancing their aesthetics and overall quality of life.
The Benefits of Dentures/Partials
- Dentures and partials in Miami, FL, are custom made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, restoring your smile and facial appearance.
- With the restoration of a complete smile, dentures, and partials can significantly enhance self-esteem and confidence, enabling you to socialize and interact more easily.
- Dentures and partials are often more affordable for replacing missing teeth than dental implants or bridges.
- Dentures and partials are removable, making them easy to clean and maintain. Regular cleaning helps to prevent oral health issues and preserve the longevity of the prosthetics.

The Process of Getting Dentures or Partials
The process of obtaining dentures or partials typically involves several key steps. It starts with a consultation with our dentist in Miami, FL, where your oral health is assessed, and a personalized treatment plan is created.
For partial dentures, impressions of your mouth are taken to ensure a customized fit, while necessary tooth extractions are scheduled. Temporary dentures may be provided if extractions are required. Subsequent appointments involve fitting, adjustments, and a final fitting to ensure a comfortable and secure fit for the dentures or partials. Throughout this process, the dental professional provides instructions on care and maintenance. This comprehensive procedure allows patients to enjoy restoring a confident smile, improved oral function, and overall well-being.
In addition to the steps mentioned, it's important to note that some cases may involve multiple visits to the dentist for fine-tuning and adjustments, ensuring the best fit and comfort for the patient. Proper communication with our dentist and adherence to their guidance is essential to ensure the successful and comfortable use of your dentures or partials.
