Dentures are one of the oldest and sought-after treatment options for missing teeth. Not only do dentures replace your missing teeth, but also their surrounding tissues, thus restoring your smile. They are made closely to resemble your natural teeth and improve your aesthetic appearance. Whether you have lost your teeth because of tooth decay, gum disease, injury, or any other reason, dentures are a preferable option to solve your concern.
What are the Types of Dentures?
- Immediate Dentures
We provide immediate dentures right after removing your teeth. These dentures allow your gums to heal right under them. As the gum tissues start healing, these dentures may lose their perfect fit due to gum shrinkage.
- Conventional Dentures
They are permanent dentures that allow your gums to heal before attaching them in place. We will take impressions of your teeth and create them to match the appearance of your natural smile.
- Partial Dentures
We use partial dentures to replace only a few missing teeth in your jaw.
- Complete Dentures
Complete dentures are used to replace all your teeth in the jaw.
- Implant-Supported Dentures
In some cases, we may also use dental implants with complete and partial dentures. We will place dental implants in your jawbone to allow them to act as support for your dentures.
What are the Benefits of Dentures?
- Dentures are a durable treatment option that maintains the natural appearance of your smile.
- The use of dentures also improves your bite and tooth functionality.
- They are one of the most affordable options for tooth restoration.
- The procedure of attaching dentures into your mouth is non-invasive.
- Opting for removable dentures allows flexibility to remove them during the night. They make a comfortable choice of dentures.
How are Dentures Made?
The first step in the fabrication of dentures is dental examination. We will examine your teeth and gum tissues to determine the state of your dental health. We will also check for the signs of infections, decay, previous dental procedures, and others. You may also need some tooth removal work before placing this restoration.
We will take a mold of your teeth and measurements to ensure that the dentures fit your jaw to perfection. These results will be sent to a dental lab to create dentures catering to your specifications.
After the completion of dentures, we will attach them to your mouth. We will also ensure you can use them without feeling pain or any other discomfort. In case of an ill fit, we will make further adjustments.
