What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and can be either full or partial, depending on the number of missing teeth. Dentures not only improve the appearance of your smile but also help maintain proper facial structure and support, making it easier to eat and speak.

Benefits of Dentures

Improved Appearance
Dentures can restore your smile, giving you a boost in confidence and self-esteem. They are designed to closely resemble natural teeth, providing a seamless and attractive appearance that enhances your facial features.

Enhanced Oral Function
With dentures, you can enjoy your favorite foods and speak more clearly, as they provide support for your lips and cheeks. By replacing missing teeth, dentures allow for better chewing and speaking abilities, improving your overall quality of life.

Preventative Measures
Dentures help prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of position, which can cause misalignment and other dental issues. They also maintain proper facial structure by providing support to the cheeks and lips, preventing a sunken or aged appearance.

Customizable
Dentures are custom-made to fit your unique mouth structure, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. They can be designed to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, creating a seamless blend that looks and feels natural.

How painful is getting dentures?

Getting dentures may cause some initial discomfort as your mouth adjusts to the new prosthetic. You may experience some soreness, irritation, or minor pain during the first few days or weeks. However, this discomfort should subside within a few weeks as your mouth adapts to the dentures, and our team will work closely with you to ensure a comfortable fit and provide guidance on managing any temporary discomfort.

How do dentures stay in with no teeth?

Dentures are designed to fit snugly over your gums and are held in place by natural suction created between the denture base and your gum tissue. The muscles in your cheeks and tongue also help to keep the dentures in position, providing additional stability. In some cases, a dental adhesive may be used to enhance the retention and comfort of your dentures, particularly for the lower denture, which tends to be more challenging to keep in place due to the tongue's movement.
