Ideally, we would love to see everyone keep their natural teeth for a lifetime. Unfortunately, that is not realistic. When teeth are lost you don’t have to worry because dentures can provide an option that is safe and affordable. Dentures are false teeth that fit comfortably in your mouth and restore your ability to talk, smile and eat. Advancements in manufacturing technology make modern dentures comfortable, simple and surprisingly natural-looking.
There are two basic options available for those who may need dentures: full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures replace all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Immediate dentures can be ready to use right away, but conventional dentures are custom-made and will take a little while to be ready for use. Partial dentures are the solution for those who may be missing just a few teeth. Ask the team in the office for more information about which type of dentures will work in your situation.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures offer several benefits to those who are missing teeth, such as:
Dentures are natural-looking and can restore a beautiful smile. They are also custom-designed so that they fit perfectly in your mouth.
Modern-day dentures will allow you to speak confidently and naturally. When dentures are properly fitted, there will be no awkwardness to your speech.
Dentures are simple and require no surgery to put in place. They will be specifically designed for your needs and comfort.
With modern technology, dentures can be specifically designed and manufactured to fit your mouth in the most comfortable way.
Dentures provide the option to replace one tooth, a few teeth or all of your teeth.
Caring for Your Dentures
You will need to take special care of your dentures and you should clean them with a specialized toothpaste that is different from regular toothpaste. It is also important to maintain regular appointments with your dentist to make sure everything is in order with your dentures. At times, it may be necessary for your dentist to make adjustments to your dentures as your gum line changes over the years. Other than these occasional adjustments, dentures are a simple, long-term solution for those missing teeth.
