Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Dentures?

For patients who are looking for the most affordable tooth replacement option or who are not candidates for dental implants, traditional dentures offer an improved quality of life.

With our in-house lab, we are able to offer our patients the lowest prices and, sometimes, same day denture services.

How can we make our dentures so affordable?

At Peachtree Dentures and Implants, we have a denture lab on-site! This lets us eliminate the need to use an outside denture lab and their higher prices. Many traditional dental offices often charge 2-4 times as much as our office. Not to mention they can take weeks or even months to get your new teeth when we can do it all in as little as one day. We also have more expertise than other offices because we limit our services to dentures and implants.

Our dentures start as low as $1,549. Book a free consult now to get started on your new smile!

Benefits of Immediate Dentures

  • No need to go without teeth | Leave our clinic with replacement teeth the same day your old teeth are removed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are immediate dentures?

As the name implies, immediate dentures are those that are placed immediately after your natural teeth are taken out. They help control bleeding and swelling by acting like bandages over your extraction sites.

What process can I expect when getting immediate dentures?

The complete process often takes 6 months, but may take more time for some patients.

  • Impressions are taken prior to your procedure with your natural teeth still present. From these impressions, your dentures are fabricated.
  • Procedure – your teeth are removed and your new teeth are placed.
  • Series of soft liners (soft re-fittings) over 6 month healing period.
  • Final re-fit (processed hard reline) at end of 6 month healing period.

What is it like to get used to immediate dentures?

The experience will be different from patient to patient, but it does require practice and patience. Your mouth will be going through significant changes over the 6 month healing period. Remember, it does get easier with time and we are here for you throughout the process.

My friend's dentures look so fake. Will mine look like that?

Absolutely not. One of the common fears patients have is that the dentures won't look natural and people will know they're dentures. Our highly skilled lab team will make certain you don't end up with "horse teeth" or "chiclets," just beautiful, natural-looking teeth. No one will know.

How will dentures fit?

The fit of dentures mostly depends upon the anatomy of the one wearing them. Full upper dentures usually fit rather well, acting as a suction cup against the roof of the mouth. Full lower dentures are known to feel loose and have a tendency to "float" in your mouth since your tongue and cheeks are constantly working to dislodge them. It's for this reason that we strongly encourage dental implants with lower dentures.

How will I chew with these new dentures?

Cut your food into smaller pieces, chew small bites, and chew with food on both sides of your mouth to even out your bite.

I can’t taste as much with my dentures. Is that common?

Yes, the palate of the complete upper denture covers the taste buds on the roof of the mouth reducing the taste sensitivity.

The lower denture is difficult to chew and speak with. Is this common?

Yes, bottom dentures are more difficult to function with than upper dentures. The tongue and cheeks moving push and pull on the lower denture and dislodge it. Talk with your doctor to learn if you’re a candidate for lower dental implants. They can help tremendously with lower denture fit and function.

My dentures feel like they’re getting loose?

This is normal with immediate dentures. Your jaws and gums will shrink down after extractions. This leaves space between your dentures and gums. We place soft liners in your dentures to fill in this space. This should help your dentures fit and feel better as you heal.

What are denture adjustments and how frequently are they needed?

New dentures can have certain spots that rub slightly and create sore spots. During a denture adjustment, we will pinpoint the spot(s) on your denture that are irritating you, reduce the amount of pressure they put on the gums, and smooth them thoroughly. This is completely normal with all new dentures and one or more adjustments should be expected.

Will I be charged for denture adjustments?

We provide denture adjustments at no charge for the first 6 months after receiving your final teeth or permanent hard reline. After this period, there is a small fee to adjust your dentures.

How do I care for my dentures?

  • Clean them daily with antibacterial hand soap and either a very soft bristled tooth brush or denture brush
  • Store them in water when not in use

What do I use to clean the dentures?

  • Either denture cleaner or antibacterial hand soap and either a denture brush or a very soft bristled tooth brush. Scrub them at least once daily
  • Soak them in a denture cleanser (optional)
  • Ultrasonic cleaner

Should I take my dentures out when I sleep?

Yes, we do recommend taking your dentures out before sleeping and also whenever possible throughout the day. This gives your gums time to "relax" and get natural, cleansing saliva flow to them. Also, if you're a teeth grinder, taking your dentures out will help you increase their usable life significantly.

Should I boil the dentures to clean them?

No! Do not boil the dentures to clean them. The heat can warp them. If this happens, they will need to be replaced.

Can my dentures be damaged?

Yes, your dentures are made from an acrylic base and acrylic teeth. While these materials are quite strong, they can be damaged. Be careful not to drop your dentures, especially onto hard surfaces such as quartz countertops, tile floors, etc.

One of the most common ways dentures can be damaged beyond repair is when a dog (or sometimes cat) gets ahold of them. Animals and pets love to chew on dentures and can often damage them beyond repair quite fast. Be extra careful to put them up where your pet can’t reach them.

If the dentures are damaged, can they be repaired?

Yes, in many cases they can. One of the great features of acrylic dentures is the affordability and ease of repair compared to other materials. And in many cases, repairs are be completed the same day.

Will there be pain after the procedure?

Though your experience may vary, most patients should expect mild discomfort and possibly swelling after your procedure. Many patients return the next day for their follow-up exam reporting minimal pain. All patients are prescribed medication for pain to help alleviate any discomfort.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

This is completely normal when you first have an implant placed in your mouth. Your body senses it as a foreign object and is trying to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should decrease within 2-3 days.

Can I be put under for the procedure?

Our office does not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer both oral & IV conscious sedation. Click here to learn more about the options. This medication will provide relaxation and typically makes it so you don’t remember the procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your local pharmacy. NOTE: You MUST have a driver both ways for your procedure, because of the sedation medication. You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

What are full dentures?

Full dentures are dentures that replace all of your natural teeth in either the upper arch, lower arch, or both.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are dentures that replace some of your missing teeth in an arch. They typically attach to the surrounding, natural teeth for stability and support.

What are the advantages of dentures?

  • Enhanced confidence | Great looks and a new smile.
  • Looks | Dentures provide great looks and are easily customized for each patient.
  • Facial support | Dentures help to fill back out areas of the face that have sunken in following tooth loss.
  • Improved nutrition | Better chewing leads to better digestion and better nutrition.
  • Affordability | Dentures are the most cost-effective way to replace a full arch (upper or lower) or an entire mouth of teeth.
  • Improved quality of life

What are the differences between denture levels?

Our dentures offer better wear resistance, better stain resistance, and longer warranties as you go up in levels.

Will I know how to eat with my new teeth right away?

Just as you would need practice in order to get used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will require some practice and patience to get used to the new teeth. Patience and practice are the keys to improving with your new dentures as quickly as you can.

Will I automatically know how to speak with my prosthetic teeth right away?

Again, this will take a little time, but with some practice and patience, your mouth and tongue will quickly adjust. "S’s" will be the trickiest to pronounce. Practicing saying words like "sixty-six" and "sarcastic" can help you get accustomed to your prosthetic teeth. In some cases, patients may experience a slight lisp long-term with dentures.

Can food get under my dentures(s)?

Yes, any prosthetic in the mouth will get some amount of food under it. The convenient thing about dentures is how easy they are to clean. Just remove them; clean your gums and the denture(s); and put them back in.

How much time should I take off work to recover after my extractions?

Usually 4-7 days is enough time for recovery. That being said, as there is always the chance of swelling and bruising, and you will need to become accustomed to speaking and eating with your dentures, the longer you can take off, the better.

What are soft liners?

A soft liner is a cushion which is placed in your denture throughout your healing process. It fills in the spaces that are created as you heal helping your dentures to feel and fit better.

I feel like I’m too young for dentures?

No, this is not just a procedure for senior citizens. It’s actually quite common for people in their 40s, 30s, even 20s to need to replace their teeth. Replacing bad teeth can be extremely beneficial to your long-term physical health, and having the ability to smile, laugh, and converse confidently with teeth you can be of can benefit your emotional health.

What items should I have ready for after my procedure?

  • ice packs
  • wash cloths you don’t mind throwing away
  • comfortable clothes you don’t mind throwing away
  • soft foods such as:
  • soups
  • yogurt
  • cottage cheese
  • smoothies
  • protein shakes
  • eggs
  • mashed potatoes (gravy optional)

Can I have the palate (middle portion that covers roof of the mouth) removed from my denture?

The majority of the palate of the denture needs to remain. Removing this also removes a great deal of stability and almost all of your natural suction. A portion of the palate can sometimes be removed for patients who have denture implants.

What are tori? Do they need to be removed?

Tori are bony knots that develop in the mouth of many patients. They are not harmful, however, they can prevent your denture(s) from fitting comfortably, so your doctor will often recommend having them removed.

How long will I bleed after the procedure?

Substantial bleeding will stop before you leave our office, however, expect to have some bleeding (oozing) for a few days after your procedure. Additionally, you'll most likely notice increased salivation when we first place your temporary teeth. When this extra saliva mixes with a small amount of blood, it can look like more blood than it is. If heavy bleeding continues, please call our office.

A home remedy that still works really well to encourage clotting and reduce bleeding is to use tea bags. Just get a standard tea bag, dampen it, squeeze out the extra water, place it on the extraction site (or sites), and the tea will help you clot. Multiple tea bags can be used if needed. Replace the tea bags if they become saturated with blood. This process can be repeated as many times as you need.

My dentures are making my gums sore, can this be improved?

There are multiple things which can cause sore gums: higher pressure spots, movement of your denture(s), and just regular wearing of the dentures.

  • High pressure spots | these are normal with new dentures and often just require simple adjustments
  • Denture movement | this can rub sores on your gums gradually. Securing your dentures with implants significantly reduces this problem.
  • Wearing dentures | dentures are foreign to the body. They can be a wonderful substitution for missing teeth, but they can still aggravate your mouth after a long day. Consider setting aside time to take your dentures out and give your gum tissue a chance to "rest."

Will my dentures wobble?

Yes, it is possible. Dental implants can provide the stability needed with dentures alone. Click here for more info.

Denture adhesive may also be helpful for some patients.

I can’t stand having something covering the roof of my mouth. What options do I have?

Dental implants often provide the stability you want. Click here for more info.

Can I remove immediate dentures?

Yes, they can be removed. They come in and out of the mouth and are kept in place either by natural suction for the upper or denture adhesive. Not all patients will have natural suction with their upper denture for multiple reasons (palatal torus, flat palate, bone loss, etc.)
