Dentures are a comfortable and convenient way to replace missing teeth. Dentures look completely natural while providing support for the cheeks and lips.
Conventional dentures are created once all the teeth have been extracted and the gums have healed. Immediate dentures are fabricated and inserted immediately after the teeth have been extracted. The gums will heal under the denture. Upper dentures have flesh colored acrylic that covers the palate, while lower dentures are shaped like a horseshoe to make room for the tongue.
Dentures are typically made from plastic, porcelain, or a combination of the tooth. For a more stable fit, they can be attached to dental implants. Over time, your denture will become worn and need to be replaced or relined in order to maintain the jaw alignment. Routine dental exams are still crucial for patients with dentures so we may check the oral tissues for disease.
