Regain Your Smile with Dentures at Scott A. Young DDS

At Scott A. Young DDS in Charlotte, NC, we understand the impact that losing teeth can have on your quality of life. Dentures are a reliable solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring your smile, and improving your ability to speak and eat comfortably. Our practice offers both full and partial dentures, customized to fit comfortably and look natural.

Types of Dentures We Offer:

  • Full Dentures: Replace all teeth in the upper or lower jaw, or both.
  • Partial Dentures: Fill in gaps when only some of the teeth are missing and are typically held in place by clasps around existing teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: Provide a more stable and secure fit by attaching to dental implants anchored in the jawbone.

Benefits of Choosing Dentures:

  • Improved Appearance: Dentures are crafted to look like your natural teeth, enhancing your smile and facial structure.
  • Enhanced Functionality: Regain the ability to chew a variety of foods and speak more clearly.
  • Customized Fit: Each denture is custom-made to ensure comfort and a natural appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures

Q: How do I know if dentures are right for me?
A: Dentures are suitable for individuals missing several teeth or an entire arch. During your consultation, Dr. Young will assess your oral health and discuss the best tooth replacement options for your situation.
Q: How long does it take to get used to dentures?
A: There is an adjustment period after receiving new dentures. Most patients begin to feel comfortable with their dentures within a few weeks.
Q: How do I care for my dentures?
A: It's important to clean your dentures daily using a soft-bristled brush and denture cleaner. Soak them overnight in a denture solution to keep them moist and maintain their shape.
Q: Can dentures slip or fall out?
A: Properly fitted dentures should stay in place comfortably. If you experience slippage, see us for an adjustment. Implant-supported dentures offer enhanced stability and may be a good option if you're concerned about slippage.
Q: How often will I need new dentures?
A: Over time, your jawbone and gums can change shape, which may necessitate a denture adjustment or replacement. On average, dentures may need to be replaced every 5 to 7 years.
