Dentures & Partials
Temporary or permanent, our dentures and partials will have you looking your best.
The dentures and partials you’ll find at our office are top-of-the-line, constructed using time-tested techniques and the latest technology to ensure a perfect fit. Whether you need a temporary solution or want to explore options for something that’s longer lasting, we make acrylic, flexible-base, and metal framework partials to meet your needs. Dr. Maskell has experience making overdentures set on natural teeth or implants. Our team is here to help create a natural look that will give you the confidence in your smile.
We provide a variety of options to suit your unique needs.
At Dental Arts of Tucson, we strive to bring you the most up-to-date technology and materials available, so that you can have confidence in our dentures and partials. Dr. Maskell works closely with local and national dental labs and uses only major manufacturer parts and supplies. We do not use gray-market or proprietary systems for implants or semi-precision attachments.
At home care instructions
Remember that it will take time to adjust to the feel of your new bite. When the bite is altered or the position of the teeth is changed it takes several days for the brain to recognize the new position of your teeth or their thickness as normal. If you continue to detect any high spots or problems with your bite, call our office at Kevin T Maskell DMD, Dental Arts of Tucson Phone Number 520-327-5661 so we can schedule an adjustment appointment.
It is normal to experience some hot and cold sensitivity. The teeth require some time to heal after removal of tooth structure and will be sensitive in the interim. Your gums may also be sore for a few days. Warm salt water rinses (a teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water) three times a day will reduce pain and swelling. A mild pain medication (one tablet of Tylenol or Ibuprofen (Motrin) every 3-4 hours) should ease any residual discomfort.
Don’t be concerned if your speech is affected for the first few days. You’ll quickly adapt and be speaking normally. You may notice increased salivation. This is because your brain is responding to the new size and shape of your teeth. This should subside to normal in about a week.
Daily brushing and flossing are a must for your new dental work. Daily plaque removal is critical for the long-term success of your new teeth, as are regular cleaning appointments.
Any food that can crack, chip or damage a natural tooth can do the same to your new teeth. Avoid hard foods and substances (such as beer nuts, peanut brittle, ice, fingernails, or pencils) and sticky candies. Smoking will stain your new teeth. Minimize or avoid foods that stain such as coffee, red wine, tea and berries.
If you engage in sports let us know so we can make a custom mouthguard. If you grind your teeth at night, wear the night guard we have provided for you. Adjusting to the look and feel of your new smile will take time. If you have any problems or concerns, please let us know. We always welcome your questions.
