Are you missing more than a few teeth? We know what it’s like! Missing teeth can cause problems with chewing, speaking, and socializing. It can even make your face look sunken.
Beyond the aesthetic angle, having missing teeth for too long can even damage your jawbone! Fortunately, dentures can resolve many of these issues. We have a lot of experience using dentures to help our patients get back to a vibrant, dazzling smile!
Types of Dentures
Dentures are simply a frame for prosthetic teeth. Depending on your needs, your dentures can either be removable or permanent.
- Removable Dentures: These are the traditional dentures you’ve seen. They are custom-made to fit in your mouth and to replace several teeth, even a complete set. You can chew with them just like normal teeth, and they’re easy to remove and clean.
- Permanent Dentures: The frame of this type of denture is attached to implants in your jawbone, rather than resting on your gums. This makes the dentures more permanent, like your own natural teeth.
Do Dentures Make Sense for You?
Some patients prefer dentures because they come with a smaller price tag than certain other dental services used to replace missing teeth. They also like that dentures can be easy to take out at night and clean.
