So you need Dentures?
Dentures are a type of prosthetic that is worn to enhance your smile. If you are missing most of or all of your teeth, this can hinder your ability to feel confident about yourself. Partial dentures work to replace just the teeth that you’re missing. Full dentures are meant for patients who are missing all of their teeth and need a full arch of prosthetic teeth.
Why might you need Dentures?
You may need dentures if you’re missing a good majority of your teeth. In many cases, teeth will need to be removed before a full denture can be made. This is often the case for patients who are losing a lot of their teeth to periodontal disease. You will need to come in for an exam and consultation to determine if dentures are the right fit for you.
What makes you an eligible candidate for Dentures?
Dentures typically require no surgery, unless extractions or implants are required prior to the appliance being made. Dentures can last for seven years, so they’re durable and long-lasting while looking incredibly realistic. The dentures are made to fit comfortably, allowing you to benefit from a confident, easy fit. Our goal is to provide you with dentures that feel great and look amazing.
What can you expect when having new Dentures made?
If surgery is required prior to the dentures being made, this will be done and given time for your body to heal. Next, careful impressions are taken of your mouth and surrounding teeth so that dental lab techs can work on creating the prosthetic. The prosthetic is made specifically for you, which provides a more comfortable fit. You will need to have the denture adjusted after coming back in. This ensures it’s providing you with a more comfortable fit. The denture can be repaired if it cracks or breaks, but it should be fully replaced within five to seven years to keep your smile looking its best.
