If you have lost your natural teeth due to damage, decay or injury, dentures can replace your missing teeth and restore your appearance and function. Replacing missing teeth is important as over time teeth adjacent to large spaces in the mouth can tilt into spaces making masticatory function very difficult. Also, missing teeth teeth can cause the facial muscles to droop, causing a person to look older than they actually are. Dentures enable an individual to enjoy food and speak comfortably, just as if you still had your natural teeth whilst still maintaining a youthful appearance.
Dentures make you look and feel your best, so you can enjoy the confidence that comes with a beautiful smile.
WHAT ARE DENTURES ?
Dentures are removable false teeth that are worn to replace missing teeth. These artificial teeth are generally made of acrylic and designed to best match your natural teeth. The base of a denture is called a plate and is usually made of either acrylic or metal. Dentures can be taken out and put back into the mouth, and they are available as either complete or partial dentures, depending on how many teeth need to be restored. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
WHO ARE IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR DENTURES?
Ideal candidates for complete dentures will have experienced significant tooth loss and be missing most or all of their teeth.
