Dentures are removable appliances that are used to replace missing teeth. They consist of natural-looking prosthetic teeth attached an acrylic, flesh-like base that closely mirrors gum tissue.
There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are sets of prosthetic teeth that can replace an entire set of teeth. Partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth.
First, you come to the office to have impressions made of your teeth. Your impressions are then sent to a dental lab, where your dentures are made according to your dentist’s exact specifications. It’s a process that merges science and artistry, and the outcome is a snug, comfortable fit for you.
Once your dentures are made, you’ll come back for a fitting. Your dentist may make some minor adjustments to assure a perfect fit. Your dentures will either rest securely along your gumline or snap into a metal framework.
Missing most or all of your teeth can have a significant impact on your quality of life. With dentures, you can improve your ability to speak and chew. Furthermore, dentures can restore your smile, so you can be proud of your appearance for years to come.
Eventually, dentures will need to be replaced. However, with proper care, they should last 5-8 years, if not more. The key is to brush and floss them like you would your natural teeth. Also, you should make sure to maintain regular visits at Comprehensive Family Dentistry so the team can monitor wear and tear and make adjustments as needed.
