Dentures Look and Feel More Natural Than Ever Before
Dentures are an effective tooth-replacement option for anyone missing multiple teeth. Dentures are custom created and made of removable prosthetic appliances with artificial teeth.
Dentures impact a person’s self-esteem, dignity, confidence, nutritional intake, chewing, digestion, phonetics (speech), facial muscle support (appearance) and intimacy. While most patients assume that you have to be over a certain age to qualify for dentures, this is not the case. Missing teeth can happen to anyone, regardless of age or gender.
A partial denture is used when a patient is missing a section of teeth. Partial dentures rest on a metal framework attached to your still-existing teeth. Dentists will often place crowns on select surrounding natural teeth to serve as supportive anchors for the denture.
Full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. The remaining teeth need to be removed first before a conventional or immediate full denture can be created.
These are dentures which are given immediately after tooth removal. These dentures
will require corrections as they underlying gums will shrink and heal.
Implant Supported Dentures:
Dental implants are small screws that are similar to the roots of teeth are placed in the jaws and a denture is placed over them. These dentures provide the closest resemblance to natural teeth.
