Achieve Better Health With Natural Looking Dentures
Many adults are convinced that traditional dentures with memories of slipping or sliding while eating will not have a place in their oral health routine! But with recent advancements in modern dental technology, removable dentures have never been so versatile, comfortable and personalized to each patient’s unique needs. Patients of all ages who have lost one or more teeth may benefit from custom designed dentures that fit securely into the mouth for a smile that looks and feels great, and functions just like a strong and healthy smile.
Conventional dentures are traditionally full or complete dentures that are used to replace a whole set of teeth. These removable prosthetic devices support the soft and hard tissues of the mouth, dental arch and bite to maintain the patient’s face shape and bite with custom made replacement teeth, also known as false teeth.
A removable partial denture or bridge is ideal for patients who have lost one or more, but not all existing teeth. When designing a partial denture, dental crowns are connected to a gum-colored plastic base that fits comfortably into the mouth and is sometimes secured into place by a metal framework or “wings.”
Replacement teeth fit firmly into the mouth using an implant supported denture. This form of a permanent bridge effectively replaces an entire set of missing teeth and won’t slip or budge when biting, chewing or speaking. If you are considering any form of dental implant it is recommended to schedule a consultation.
Benefits of Removable Dentures
Dental bridges and crowns offer a variety of benefits in supporting your oral health after tooth loss:
- Can be used to replace as many as one or all missing teeth
- Improves abilities to eat and speak and clean teeth with ease
- Restores natural face shape that may sag or droop after tooth loss
- Fit securely into the mouth for a long-lasting restorative solution
Your Visit With Dr. Latourelle
After carefully assessing your current dental health condition and asking about your medical history, Dr. Latourelle will guide you through your available treatment options to discover the best solution for your specific needs. Creating your custom made denture requires making a detailed impression of the teeth to serve as a mold. Once the denture is formed, small adjustments are made and the denture is polished for final placement into the mouth. Wearing your new denture may take getting used to at first, but will quickly feel like second nature as your facial muscles adjust.
