Learn about Marrero Removable Dentures
If you are missing one or more teeth but still have surrounding natural teeth that are intact, our Marrero removable dentures services may be right for you. Removable partial dentures can be a great solution for teeth that have already fallen out or been knocked out, as well as those that need to be removed due to severe damage or decay. Whatever the cause, it is critical that you replace missing teeth to maintain good dental health.
Removable partial dentures typically include a row of artificial replacement teeth on a custom-made base. This base, which is either acrylic or metal and acrylic, is customized to match the color of your gums. It clips onto your surrounding natural teeth for support. When it comes to your replacement teeth, Southern Dental Care offers gold, silver, alloys, porcelain, or combinations of these materials for your removable dentures.

What to Expect from Removable Dentures
It may be an adjustment at first, but removable partial dentures should be a substantial improvement over missing, damaged, or decaying teeth. Here are a few things you can expect from removable dentures:
- Initial sensitivity — The mouth is very sensitive, so you may notice the dentures in your mouth or find them awkward. This should subside with a little time.
- Adjustment appointments — After we fit you for removable dentures, we will make several appointments with you to check for pressure points in your mouth and adjust your dentures accordingly.
- Easier eating — Once your replacement teeth are in place, it should be easier for you to eat. Start simply with soft foods, small pieces, and nothing too sticky.

How to Care for Removable Dentures
Once you have your removable dentures, it’s important to properly care for them. At Southern Dental Care, we make sure to share with you our best recommendations for cleaning and maintaining your dentures. You will need to rinse your dentures off, brush them with an appropriate toothbrush and denture cleaner, and soak your dentures in water or a solution overnight. In time, this easy routine will become second nature.
