What Type Of Dentist Does Dentures
My dentist told me I need dentures, and I really don't want to do this. Can I get a second opinion?
Of course you can: You will need to see someone to get that 2nd opinion. They will need to see your teeth and your x-rays to make that determination. I would recommend you see a prosthodontist in your area--he or she is a specialist in complex restorative dentistry and if you do really need a denture a prosthodontist would be the best person to make it. Prosthodontics is one of the 9 specialties in dentistry.See 3 more doctor answers

Pls see a dentist: A dentist will be able to answer your concerns.
Your question?: I'm guessing that you think or want dentures. The best way to proceed is to find a dentist who comes highly recommended by family, friends, neighbors or other health care professionals. Then schedule an appointment so you can be fully evaluated and given your treatment options. Don't settle for dentures if you can avoid them. It seems like a quick & easy fix but isn't!See 7 more doctor answers

Yes: Yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
Possibly: If a partial denture breaks, and especially if you are not able to wear it, don't hesitate getting into a dentist to get it repaired. The longer you don't wear it, your remaining teeth may shift and it will not fit properly even after repairing. Also, please do not try and repair yourself. Not all partials can be repaired but most can.See 3 more doctor answers
Not Necessarily: If you have a denture problem, it's generally best to see the original dentist again. Not only is he/she most familiar with your specific case, but he/she probably won't charge as much to perform follow-up work on something he/she fabricated. A new dentist is okay too, but it may cost more. If your original dentist can't help you, then you'll have to find someone else, obviously. Either way is ok.See 3 more doctor answers
No best and no: Resins used to make dentures are very generic as to materials very little in composition. It is sad that dentists try to use the material in the denture base to differentiate a cheap versus a deluxe denture. The expense to the dentist from the lab for a customize base resin is small and can lead to deception in its cost. Yet, adding blanching, pigment and fiber can improve cosmetics.

My root has broken in half and my dentist said that I will need a denture is this true? Can the screw be replaced
Proper Diagnosis: In order to give you an accurate & educated answer to your question, we would need to personally examine you & see x-rays of your entire jaw. A root that has broken in half is considered hopeless. Depending upon how many good\salvageable teeth you have would be factored in to what your restorative options are. You should have confidence in your dentist understand your options & why it is advisedSee 2 more doctor answers
