Why Choose Dentures?
Dental implants are the best option for replacing missing teeth, but not everyone is a candidate or can afford them. If you are missing teeth and implants are not right for you at this time, you might be considering dentures. Dentures are prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues.
There are full or complete dentures, which would replace all of the teeth in an arch, either upper or lower, or both. If you still have some natural teeth, partial dentures can be used to replace as little as one missing tooth, or many teeth depending on what is needed.
There are also implant-supported dentures. In this case, dental implants are strategically inserted into your jaw, and your denture would lock into them, making it a more secure fit.
Dentures can be fixed or removable and can be made with a variety of materials. There are many choices, and we will work with you to come up with a treatment plan.
Why Replace Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can cause problems functionally as well as aesthetically. You might have issues with jaw pain, difficulty chewing and speaking correctly and your self-esteem could suffer.
Missing teeth tend to change your appearance, making your face look more sunken. The longer you have missing teeth, the more issues that can develop, which is why you shouldn’t delay seeking treatment.
Dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth, needs, and preferences. We would begin with a consultation and decide on a treatment plan. We take impressions of your mouth and send them off to a lab where your dentures are made. Once made, we make sure they fit properly and that you are pleased with how they look and feel.
Dentures do need to be cleaned and cared for just like natural teeth. If taken care of properly, they can last for many years. If you are missing teeth and want to discuss your options, please call us today!
