If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health.
When you are missing teeth, not only can it can impact your ability to chew and speak, but it also negatively impact your self confidence. Your teeth actually help fill out the appearance of your facial profile. When your teeth are missing, your facial muscles can sag, making your appear older. We want to help bring your confidence back!
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth, enhancing your smile and restoring function to your bite.
There are different types of dentures depending on your specific treatment plan needs.
New dentures may feel awkward for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place. It is not unusual to experience minor irritation or soreness. You may find that saliva flow temporarily increases.
As your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures, these problems should go away. Follow-up appointments with the dentist are generally needed after a denture is inserted so the fit can be checked and adjusted. If any problem persists, particularly irritation or soreness, be sure to consult your dentist.
Even if you wear full dentures, you still have to practice good dental hygiene. Brush your gums, tongue and roof of your mouth every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.
