Long term problems with cavities and chronic periodontal disease can leave you with mouth full of compromised teeth. In many of these cases multiple teeth can be lost over the course of years. This can alter the appearance of your smile and the overall function of your mouth.
In a situation like this Dr. Karisha Madden might recommend extracting whatever teeth remain in your mouth to start the process of fitting you for a complete denture. This type of removable dental appliance is designed to replicate the presence and appearance of your original teeth. This can restore your proper oral function.
Once the remaining teeth have been Dr. Karisha Madden will suture your gums. Then he will prepare an impression of the underlying gums. This will be sent to a dental lab to guide the technicians in creating your dentures.
Dr. Karisha Madden might provide you with a prescription for pain management and anti-inflammatory medication to help you remain comfortable while your gum tissues heal. If your gums were suffering from a severe infection, he might also include a prescription for a course of antibiotics.
Afterward Dr. Karisha Madden will provide you with the necessary aftercare instructions to help your gums heal and fit comfortably with the dentures.
