How Do Dentures Work?
Are you living with the loss of some or all of your teeth? Dentures are an affordable tooth loss solution! Dentures are prosthetic devices that allow you to smile, speak, and eat with confidence again. They can also help you maintain the natural look of your face and prevent your facial muscles from sagging as a result of tooth loss. To learn more about the benefits of dentures, schedule a consultation with our prosthetic experts!
There are two types of dentures available, depending on the extent of your tooth loss: complete dentures or partial dentures. Patients receive complete dentures in full-mouth tooth loss cases, while patients who still have some or most of their teeth benefit from partial dentures. They are both made from natural-looking acrylic that look just like real teeth when placed in your mouth. Dentures are custom-made to fit over your gums for optimal fit and function.
When it’s time to discuss dentures, your dentist will perform an exam and take X-rays. We will go over your treatment needs to determine the kind that is right for your unique case. Regardless of the denture that you need, dentures are removable prosthetic devices used to restore the look and function of a complete smile.
