What Are Full Dentures?
Full dentures are dental prosthetics that replace the teeth in your upper or lower jaw or both. They consist of artificial teeth set in a gum-colored base. We craft the dentures with meticulous detail to fit snugly over your gums and match the natural colors of your smile.
Full dentures can be either “conventional” or “immediate.” Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gums have healed, usually taking about 6-8 weeks. Immediate dentures are made in advance, and we can place them right after the teeth are removed. With immediate dentures, you don’t have to go without teeth during the healing process. However, they may require more adjustments and may not fit as well as conventional dentures.
Benefits of Full Dentures
Full dentures offer many benefits for those missing all of their teeth. Dentures:
Improve appearance and smile
It can be embarrassing if you are missing teeth. You may feel self-conscious about your smile and avoid social situations. Dentures can give you back your confidence by restoring your smile.
Restore chewing function
Missing teeth can make it difficult to chew properly and eat the foods you love, leading to nutritional deficiencies. Dentures can help you chew food more effectively and make it easier to eat a healthy diet.
Missing teeth can also affect your speech. Dentures can help you speak more clearly and without embarrassment.
Increase confidence and quality of life
Dentures can improve your appearance, increase confidence, and lead to a better quality of life. Everyone should be able to show their smile proudly, and dentures can help.
Improved facial structure support
Dentures also help support the facial muscles and prevent the sunken-in look that can occur with tooth loss.
Are Full Dentures Right for Me?
Full dentures may be the right solution if you are missing all of your teeth. We can also use dentures to replace teeth that are severely damaged or decayed and cannot be repaired.
If you are considering dentures, we will work with you to determine the best type of denture for your needs. We will also take into account your budget and preferences. We want you to be happy with your dentures and will work with you to ensure that they meet your needs and expectations.
How Are Full Dentures Held in Place?
Full dentures are held with natural suction between the denture and gum line or denture adhesive. They can also be secured with dental implants for added stability. Dental implants are titanium posts that are carefully placed in the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. The implants fuse with the bone over time and provide a strong foundation for the denture.
