Dentures

If you've been suffering from severe toothaches, red/swollen gums, loose or moving teeth, or difficulty chewing foods, or are already missing teeth, you may be a candidate for dentures.

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are designed to closely mimic your natural teeth and can also enhance your smile.

Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture works by filling the spaces created by missing teeth, while also preventing other teeth from shifting. "Conventional” complete dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, which is usually a four- to six-week period. During this time the patient will go without teeth. "Immediate" complete dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, which means the patient doesn't have to go without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissue shrinks and heals, adjustments usually have to be made, and eventually, a new set will be needed once the tissue is completely healed. Dentures are very durable, and typically last many years, but occasionally have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

If you've been considering dentures, schedule an appointment to discuss your options.
