Replace Missing Teeth With Dentures From Your Grand Ledge Dentist
Missing teeth can cause major oral health issues, both functionally and aesthetically, as the space around an extracted tooth can not only make eating and speaking more difficult, it can also lead to alignment issues in surrounding teeth, changes in the shape of your face, and more.
Thankfully, dentures are an excellent way to replace missing teeth, as they are custom-made to comfortably fit your unique needs.
What types of dentures are available?
There are two variations of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are used when all of the teeth in an arch need to be replaced, while partial dentures are for areas of the mouth where one, two, or a few teeth are missing and need to be replaced.
How are dentures made and how realistic do they look?
Dentures are made by taking an impression, or mold, of your mouth. This helps our dental professionals design a denture that will fit snugly in your mouth and look as realistic as possible. They are made with either a hard or soft acrylic base and can be customized with different tooth shades, sizes, and shapes, and look like your natural teeth.
Who is a candidate for dentures?
If you are missing one, a few, or all of your teeth, you may be a candidate for dentures. However, it is important to note that patients considering this restorative option need to undergo a thorough consultation with our friendly team to determine their candidacy for treatment.
How should dentures be cared for?
Dentures need to be brushed daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to remove food, bacteria, and plaque. They also need to be soaked in water or a denture-cleaning solution when not being worn to keep them moist and prevent them from drying out and losing their shape.
