Upper & Lower Complete Dentures
Dentures are Beneficial
A denture, or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that replaces natural teeth & soft tissue, which provides facial support for the cheeks and lips.
- Mastication – chewing ability is improved by replacing missing teeth with dentures
- Aesthetics – dentures not only restore a natural and attractive appearance to the teeth, but can also correct the collapsed exterior of lips and cheeks that occurs after losing teeth
- Confidence – a healthy and beautiful-looking smile will help the patient feel more confident
- Phonetics – by replacing missing teeth, patients will be able to better pronounce certain words that require the use of teeth to speak.
A conventional denture is made after all teeth have been extracted and the soft tissues have healed. An interim denture is worn immediately after the teeth are extracted, this allows the soft tissues to heal prior to making your final denture. This treatment allows for the soft tissues and underlying structures to completely heal prior to getting your final denture, which allows the final denture to look natural and function best, so you can enjoy the foods you love.
An upper complete denture covers the palate (the roof of the mouth) and a lower complete denture is shaped like a horseshoe to leave room for the tongue. A complete denture(s) can be attached to dental implants allowing for a more secure fit.
