Dentures are custom-designed, removable false teeth. These prosthetics are made to replace several or all of your missing natural teeth, or you may only need partial dentures to replace a section of your teeth. Your dentist will work with a dental laboratory to design your custom-fit dentures for your unique mouth. With structurally sound dentures, you will be able to speak and chew comfortably.
How Do Dentures Work?
Our dentist will prepare an impression mold that is sent to our dental laboratory to make sure your dentures are a perfect fit. Once your dentures are fabricated, we will give you instructions on denture maintenance and cleaning. We will also teach you how to acclimate to new dentures, as chewing and speaking while wearing dentures feels foreign in the first few days or weeks.
What Are the Benefits of Dentures?
Perhaps the most notable benefit of dentures is they can make a person feel more self-confident as they help support the facial muscles and lips, which prevents facial sagging common in people with missing teeth. Missing teeth, especially the front teeth, often causes a lack of confidence. The functional benefits of dentures are also worth noting, as you will be able to eat denser foods again, as missing certain teeth makes it hard to eat dense or hard foods. Dentures also help a person speak more clearly. Missing teeth makes it difficult to enunciate certain words.
