Missing teeth can create a lot of problems. They make it more difficult to properly eat and speak, detract from your appearance, and can cause oral health problems, like bone loss, gingivitis, cavities, and shifting teeth. By replacing your missing teeth, dentures revitalize your smile and improve your quality of life.
Denture technology has also vastly improved in recent years. Today’s dentures are made from state-of-the-art materials that look incredibly natural and feel vastly more comfortable than their predecessors.
Dentures can be slightly uncomfortable at first and might feel loose or bulky in your mouth. This is a temporary and expected part of the process, though. The muscles in your mouth simply need some time to adjust and learn how to work with your new dentures.
Once your mouth acclimates, you actually feel more comfortable when you’re wearing your dentures than you do when you’re not. This is because your dentures restore the natural harmony and structure of your smile, giving you an easier time with daily activities like chewing and speaking.
Elite Dental & Denture PC offers a wide variety of denture options to satisfy your unique needs and preferences, including:
Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth in your smile, either for your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. They’re used if you don’t have any teeth left or are planning on getting your remaining teeth extracted. They’re held in place with suction or adhesive that keeps them securely attached to your gums.
Partial dentures can restore your smile if you still have healthy teeth that you want to keep but are missing more teeth than a bridge can sufficiently replace. Just like full dentures, they have a gum-colored base that fits over your gums, but the base is custom-designed to have openings in it where you still have healthy teeth. This enables your artificial teeth and your natural teeth to work side-by-side.
Elite Dental & Denture PC offers both fixed and removable partial dentures, meaning your partial denture can either be permanently cemented to your smile or can be taken in and out of your smile whenever you need, like for a cleaning.
Implant-supported dentures, like All-On-4® implants, provide a more technologically advanced way to keep your dentures secured to your smile. Your dentures are attached to dental implants, which are small, titanium posts that are surgically implanted into your jaw and function as artificial tooth roots.
Implant-supported dentures tend to be even more comfortable than traditional dentures, and they provide healthy stimulation to your jawbone, which can help prevent bone loss and facial sagging.
