Complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. As your dedicated dental solution, we’ll fit you for dentures that do more than just improve functionality.
Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from a denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak – things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.
There are various types of complete dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. The dentist takes measurements and makes models of the patient’s jaws during a preliminary visit. Implant-supported dentures can significantly improve denture stability, retention and the ability chew food.
If you have a number of missing teeth on either your upper or lower jaw, we may recommend a partial denture. A partial denture stops several problems: By filling in spaces, it stops neighboring teeth from shifting. When missing teeth aren’t replaced, it can set off a chain reaction that might result in cavities and periodontal disease. Partial dentures are helpful to balance your bite, which means better chewing and a healthier jaw joint.
