A denture is a prosthetic that replaces missing teeth and gums and supports the cheeks and remaining mouth tissue. Dentures are removable, very natural looking, and with technological advances, are very comfortable to wear.
Complete and Partial Dentures
There are two types of dentures available, a complete, which is needed when the patient no longer has any teeth in the mouth and a partial, for when there only few missing teeth. It’s important to keep in mind patients of any age may require dentures. Your dentist will evaluate your condition and customize a new set of teeth just for you.
Benefits of DENTURES
Replacing missing teeth will help to improve your appearance and smile. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. Dentures can help you eat and speak more comfortably.
Let us Craft Custom Dentures for Your Teeth
The Custom Denture is made with more aesthetic teeth for a more natural-looking denture. The denture teeth are set in a wax base so you may try them in to see how the denture will look before it is completed. You may make changes to suit you, consistent with your dental needs. After you have approved the look of your custom denture, the lab will custom finish your denture in the permanent acrylic base material. It’s like designing your own smile!
The custom denture is often available the same day, however in some cases it may take longer. The practice will inform you of their delivery times.
How Long do Dentures Last?
Over a period, your denture will need to be relined, remade, or rebased due to normal wear. Rebasing means making a new base while keeping the existing denture teeth. Also, as you age, your mouth naturally changes. These changes cause your dentures to loosen, making chewing difficult and irritating your gums. At a minimum, you should see your dentist annually for a checkup.
