If you’ve lost your natural teeth from periodontal disease, decay or injury we can help. Replacing missing teeth with dentures benefits your facial structure, and your ability to eat and speak. Dentures are removable replacements for your teeth, designed to look and function like your own natural teeth. State of the art dentures look very realistic and natural and are much more comfortable than in years past.
Types of dentures
There are various types of complete dentures. A complete denture replaces all of your missing teeth. A partial denture replaces teeth when there are a few missing teeth between healthy teeth.
A conventional full denture replaces all of your teeth and is placed in your mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed, which may take several months. In the meantime, an immediate temporary denture is inserted when the remaining teeth are removed. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.
Even if you wear full dentures, you still must take good care of your mouth. Always brush with a soft-bristled brush. Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque, and every evening after you remove your dentures.
Your teeth provide a structure for your cheeks and face. Therefore, tooth loss can result in the sagging of your cheeks and make you appear older. It is essential that your missing teeth are replaced as soon as possible.
