Dentures

                                  

  • If you’ve lost some or all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile.

  • Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak, the things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost. 

  • There are various types of dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patient’s mouth after all the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed.

  • An interim (or temporary) denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. With interim dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.

  • A partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base, which is often reinforced by a metal framework.   

  • Even if you wear dentures, you still must take good care of your mouth. Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.
