Dentists have used dentures for centuries to replace missing teeth. You will be happy to know that they have improved a lot over the years!
Whether you are facing dental extractions or you have multiple missing teeth, you are probably thinking about your appearance and how you will be able to eat the foods you love.
Dentures can fill out your facial features, complete your smile, and help you eat a wider variety of foods by replacing your missing teeth.
Custom Complete Dentures
Complete dentures are for patients who are missing all of their teeth on their upper arch, their lower arch, or both.
When you think of dentures, you may remember your grandparents’ “false teeth” that looked too big or bulky and often had an opaque or fake appearance. Today’s dentures are much more esthetic, and advancements in dentistry have ensured that even if you have had difficulty in the past finding dentures that fit well, we can give you great results!
Today’s complete dentures are usually made with a pink resin base and natural-looking denture teeth. Denture teeth come in a wide array of shades, colors, and shapes so that we can provide attractive results.
At Spring Grove Dental, we strive to create dentures that give you confidence and allow you to eat a larger variety of foods.
If you still have some of your natural teeth, we can use those teeth as an anchor to hold your partial denture in place. Small wires snap onto your existing teeth and hold your partial denture in place, completing your smile.
We meticulously match your partial denture to your natural teeth so that you have a uniform appearance.
Of course, taking care of your natural teeth is essential to maintaining your partial denture and your oral health.
For patients who want additional security with their dentures, we can use several dental implants to create a way for your dentures to lock in place. Patients love implant-supported dentures because they always stay put when you need them most – while eating, speaking, and laughing.
We may even be able to adapt your existing denture to function properly with your dental implants!
Caring for Your Dentures
It is important to avoid dropping your denture or exposing it to heat. Both can damage your denture and change how it fits.
You should always bring your denture to your regular dental appointments so we can examine it for damage and make sure it is still comfortable.
Use only denture cleaners and a denture brush to clean your dentures because abrasive materials can scratch your denture and create a harbor for bacteria.
