Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. They are designed to look and function like natural teeth. They are made from high-quality, durable materials and fit securely over the gums. Dentures can improve your appearance and your ability to chew and speak, as well as restore your facial structure.
What Are The Different Types of Dentures?
There are different types of dentures, but all of them are designed to restore the form and function of your teeth. The type that is right for you will depend on your unique dental needs and preferences.
Full Dentures and Partial Dentures
Full dentures are designed to replace all of the teeth in your upper arch and your lower arch. Partial dentures are designed to replace some of the teeth in your upper arch and your lower arch, but not all.
At your consultation, we’ll take some necessary measurements and impressions of your teeth. Then, we’ll send those impressions to our dental lab so they can create your new dentures. Once your dentures are made, you’ll come back in so we can check your fit and make any adjustments.
What Are The Benefits of Dentures?
There are many benefits to getting dentures. First, they will help you regain your confidence, which may have been lost after losing your natural teeth. Second, they will help you speak better. Dentures will restore your ability to speak properly. They will help you speak clearly, without the worry that your teeth will slip, fall out, or be uncomfortable. As you age, your gum line will recede, which can affect your speech. Fortunately, dentures will prevent this.
Dentures will also help improve your chewing ability. Without teeth, chewing can be uncomfortable, and you may not be able to eat many of the foods you previously enjoyed. With dentures, you’ll be able to enjoy any foods you like.
Dentures vs. Dental Implants: Which Is Better?
Dental implants are often a preferred treatment because they are more permanent. However, dentures can still offer you a full smile, restore your chewing function, and allow you to speak and smile with confidence.
Dental implant-supported dentures are a fantastic long-term option for denture wearers. The dentures are attached to dental implants, which will secure the dentures in place. This reduces the risk of slipping, gum irritation, and denture odor.
