Dentures are removable appliances that can bring your appearance and smile to the way they once were. If you now have old and ill-fitting dentures, we can offer a dental implant options to aid with stability and retention of new dentures. This makes it easier to eat, chew and keep dentures in place when talking, smiling and just everyday life. The implants go directly underneath your denture and your denture attaches to the implants. Call us to discuss your denture and/or dental implant options.
Dentures are a great option for people who are not able to save their teeth often from neglect or severe periodontal problems leading to tooth loss.
Dentures can aid with the following:
- Improve appearance
- Support your facial muscles and give a more youthful appearance
- Increase self esteem
- Improve speech
- Eat foods you enjoy
- Restore confidence
Dentures are not your real teeth, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be caring for them! Continue to maintain proper dental hygiene. After removal, place them in room temperature water (not hot water). If you notice a problem with the fitting or if you notice an anomaly, bring them in right away and do not try and fix yourself. You could permanently damage them. With dentures you still need to have regular checkups at the dentist and will have to be relined by your dentist every few years for better fit.
