Complete Dentures and Partial Dentures
Missing teeth can create many undesirable consequences for your overall health. It is very difficult, if not impossible to chew and enjoy food and allow for proper digestion when teeth are missing. By replacing your missing teeth, you can regain the joy of eating these foods. Many denture wearers will improve their overall health and nutrition because the types of foods that are healthier tend to require more chewing. When teeth are missing, people will tend to eat less healthy foods because they require less chewing.
The social stigmas attached to missing teeth and the loss of self-confidence they may bring are also of critical concern. Speech can also be affected by missing teeth, making a person not want to speak in public. To help prevent this wide away of problems, our practice can provide you with a partial or full denture in order to fully restore your smile.
Dentures are made of removable artificial teeth that are fitted onto a custom-formed acrylic or acrylic/metal base in order to replace missing teeth. They can replace an entire row of missing teeth (full denture) or just some missing teeth (partial denture).
One of the greatest benefits a full denture can provide is that we can fully customize the color and shape of your new teeth to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. A well-made denture can take years off of a patient’s smile by providing enhanced lip and soft tissue support which can reverse the “sunk-in” look that many people with missing teeth suffer from.
The biggest challenge for denture wearers is the fact that it is a removable prosthetic that can move around in the mouth. Dental implants are a great service to secure or “lock-down” the denture and prevent it from moving in the mouth. It is a major confidence booster to know that your dentures will not be loose at the most inopportune time, and that can save you from the embarrassment that may come along with it!
