Replace missing teeth! Full and partial dentures restore your ability to chew, speak, and smile.
In order to replace missing or removed natural teeth, your dentist will craft dentures, which are artificial teeth and gums that are shaped to fit your mouth. Dentures can be full or partial, which means that they can either completely cover the top or bottom gum line or simply the few missing teeth. Whatever type of dentures you require, they will be made specifically for your mouth and will be aesthetically similar to your natural teeth.
The false teeth that make up dentures used to be constructed of porcelain or plastic in the past, but more recent dentures are often composed of a strong resin. Denture teeth are made of materials that are known to be more brittle than natural teeth and are more likely to chip or break if dropped or treated roughly in any other way. Every five years or so, a new set of dentures must be worn since this material deteriorates considerably faster than real teeth do.
Dentures not only make a smile with several missing teeth look better, but they help maintain the integrity of the mouth's structure by supporting the tissues around the cheeks and lips. Additionally, chewing-intensive meals may be consumed with dentures, allowing you to maintain your diet and get the nutrition you need. Last but not least, dentures are a good option for replacing teeth that are causing significant discomfort and oral health problems, such those with severely damaged roots or rotten roots. When dentures are fitted, problematic teeth are removed and replaced with a durable and attractive substitute.
Partial Dentures: are adapted to the portion of the gum line they will rest on and secured to neighboring healthy teeth to prevent dislocation. However, they are not firmly secured and may be removed as necessary for cleaning or sleeping.
Full dentures: are prosthetics that completely replace your natural teeth. They may be customized to match your top or bottom gum line and are secured in place through suction to the gum line or an oral adhesive. Just like partial dentures they may be removed as necessary for cleaning or sleeping.
Implant Dentures: are dentures that are surgically attached to the jaw so it's securely fastened and doesn't slip out when talking, eating, laughing, sneezing, etc. There are a variety of different implant procedures, varying in cost, invasiveness, portability, and more!
