Dentures & Partials in Glyndon, MD

When you are missing several teeth or a full arch of teeth, Dr. Leah Romay can help restore your smile with dentures and partials. Our dentures and partials are designed to ensure a beautiful appearance, a secure fit, and comfortable daily usage.

We understand the toll that missing a full arch of teeth can take on your lifestyle and your self-confidence. We encourage you to consult with Dr. Romay on your options for restorative care.

Dr. Romay places implant dentures for patients desiring a permanent, secure option to replace missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures can be placed to resolve previous issues with a poorly fitted or slipping denture, restoring improved function and aesthetics. Implant dentures provide the same key benefits that single tooth implants can offer including reduced bone loss in the jaw.

Denture FAQs

Am I a candidate for implant supported dentures?

Most patients are considered good candidates for the use of implants to secure a denture. Dr. Romay will provide a thorough dental exam to evaluate all aspects of your oral health and can coordinate any recommended treatment to address issues with significant bone loss or periodontal disease.

How should I care for my dentures?

You will need to clean your dentures and your mouth daily. Rinsing your dentures after you eat will help maintain them. Use a soft-bristled brush and nonabrasive denture cleanser to brush your dentures.

Soak them in a denture solution overnight to maintain their moisture. Make sure to rinse the dentures thoroughly before putting them back in your mouth, especially if they have been soaking in solution.

I am concerned about denture slippage. What can be done?

Strategically placed dental implants can be used to anchor your dentures or partials to ensure a more secure fit. We do our best to design your oral appliances to snuggly fit into your smile; however, the added support from a few dental implants can make a huge difference in your own personal comfort. Talk with Dr. Leah Romay about how dental implants can be utilized in your treatment plan.

Can I sleep with my dentures in?

No matter what kind of dentures you have, sleeping with them in is never a good idea and can lead to a multitude of health problems. Make sure to take out your dentures every night before bed. This helps keep your mouth free of bacteria, your gums healthy, and your bones intact and strong.

Can you have dentures without any teeth?

You can still get full dentures if you have no teeth or bone structure to support. Partial dentures require some tooth structure, as they attach to your teeth to be held in place.

How long do dentures last?

Statistics show that partial dentures can last up to 15 years while full dentures can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years. Your mouth and your dentures may experience significant changes over this time. This may result in your dentures not fitting anymore. If this occurs please know that dentures can be replaced after time, if they break or do not fit any longer.

What to expect when wearing dentures for the first time?

When wearing dentures for the first time, it is important to keep in mind that you may develop some sore spots. You may also notice that you have excess saliva. As you adjust to the dentures these side effects should dissipate.

How long are gums sore after dentures?

In general, gums are sore for two to four weeks after you initially get dentures. It is common to experience some minor discomfort and gum tenderness. Please remember to be patient as your gums take time to adjust.
