Tooth loss presents a number of negative affects for patients. Losing teeth affects oral function, making eating and speaking far more difficult. Tooth loss also has devastating effects on a patient’s confidence, often resulting in anxiety and depression. Fortunately, our dentist offers custom dentures that can restore both a patient’s confidence and oral function.
Custom Dentures Offer a Completely Restored Smile
Edentulous patients require a full restoration of their lost teeth and the easiest way to achieve this is to receive dentures. For total tooth replacement, full dentures are necessary. When some but not all teeth are missing, they can be replaced with a partial denture. Dentures replace the biting (and visible) surfaces of teeth so that patients can eat with ease and smile with confidence. Full dentures rest on top of the gums and the arched shape of the jaw holds them in place whereas partial dentures feature snaps that connect to biological teeth. Partial dentures also support biological teeth so that they don’t become displaced by shifting toward empty tooth sockets.
Dentures are made from the highest quality materials that provide a lifelike appearance.
Partial or full dentures are made in a dental laboratory by skilled and educated technicians. This means that each denture is made specifically for one patient. Based on computer-generated models, exact measurements are given to technicians so that prosthetic teeth fit comfortably and look natural. Dentures are made from the highest quality materials that provide a lifelike appearance. Materials used include porcelain to mimic the translucency and whiteness of teeth and acrylics to resemble gingival tissue. While custom dentures are made, patients have the option to wear a temporary set.
