If you’re one of the estimated 25 million or more Americans who are living without teeth, there’s good news. Today’s advanced dentures can give you back a beautiful smile and greater comfort with eating than you might have imagined.
Forget What You May Have Heard
Several decades ago, dentures were viewed as a “last resort” by many people. The conventional “wisdom” said that dentures were uncomfortable, didn’t look lifelike, and tended to cause problems.Specifically, “old-style” dentures tended to move around in the mouth, slip while eating, or even pop out unexpectedly.
That was then, and this is now. Like everything else, dentistry advances, and today’s materials and techniques can give you a comfortable smile that you have to see to believe. In fact, it’s quite possible that you know someone who wears dentures – but you don’t know that they do!
These are what people typically think of when someone mentions the word “dentures.” Removable full dentures replace one or both entire “arches” of missing teeth. The result is that people without teeth can eat comfortably again and smile with confidence.
Dentures are replacement teeth set into a mold that closely matches the color of your gums. In fact, dentures fit over your gums where suction holds them in place, often with the help of some denture adhesive. The result is a snug, secure fit that is very comfortable once you’re used to having them in place.
Cleaning and maintenance is easy – just remove the dentures from your mouth.
With today’s modern materials, advanced design, and superior production techniques, you’ll be wondering why you waited so long to consider dentures!
For people who are missing one or several teeth, partial dentures can be an excellent solution. “Partials” replace those teeth beautifully and restore your appearance as well as your ability to eat comfortably.
Partial dentures are held in place with clips and are easy to remove. As with full dentures, cleaning and maintenance is easy.
Implant-Retained and Implant-Supported Dentures
These dentures offer the advance of increased stability in your mouth. Removable implant-retained dentures use a ball attachment, while implant-supported dentures use a bar to firmly anchor your dentures. Either option will remove any concern about your dentures moving or slipping. Your dentist will tell you which will work best for you.
There’s more good news! Drs. Argeros and Plourde can create temporary dentures just for you. You’ll be able to smile with pride and eat the foods you love while your permanent dentures are being fabricated.
