United States – May 3th 2012
Some people still think of Anchorage dentures as something that only older individuals need, but people of all ages who have lost teeth due to illness or injury wear dentures. While it once took a wait of some weeks or months between having teeth extracted, and being fitted with dentures, in recent years 24 hour dentures have been able to provide an immediate replacement for natural teeth, and can work well for many people.
The dental plates themselves act as a sort of bandage after the extractions so the patient does not need to change gauze, and this will usually enable it heal faster. Most patients not only walk out of the office with a full set of new teeth, but can drink beverages and eat soft foods with their new teeth even on the first day. The 24 hour dentures are worn almost constantly for several days since the gums will be swollen, and they act to protect the gums as the gums heal. While their mouth will be tender at first, most people can eat and talk normally within the first few weeks.
While most dental offices can fit a patient with traditional dentures, the newer 24 hour dentures require that the dental care facility have not only a full denture lab but also the trained personnel staff to it. In the entire State, of Alaska, Dr. Guy Burk’s dental center in Anchorage is the only dental office that currently can offer it as an option to patients. The dentures anchorage AK office was already the largest in the state when Dr. Guy Burk bought the practice from his father, Dr. Don Burk, in 2008. Since then it has grown enough that he decided to start a separate website at www.denturesalaska.com with articles about dental issues that people often enquires.
Dr. Burk states that they perform all extractions and surgeries in-house, and they offer patients IV sedation, nitrous oxide and oral sedation to ensure that the procedure is a comfortable experience. He further states that they are the only facility in Alaska that offers Dentures Anchorage 24 hours, and that they cater to Alaskan Bush Community Residents.
