Missing teeth not only affect your appearance and how you eat and speak, but they can have a negative impact on your dental health, as well. With removable dentures, however, you can restore the look and function of your smile with this time tested dental treatment. Dentures are a removable dental prosthetic made up of artificial gum and teeth. They also come in two forms; partial for patients who have other natural teeth present and complete for those who have no natural existing teeth.

Dentures offer several advantages to individuals with missing teeth. They include:

  • Improved confidence – Teeth are one of the first things people see when you smile and talk. Missing teeth can cause individuals to shy away from social situations, however, with dentures you can regain that confidence.
  • Facial muscle support – When teeth are missing, the shape of your face changes and can cause you to have a sunken appearance. Dentures help maintain the natural contours of your face.
  • Eat and speak freely – Missing teeth can deter you from eating certain fews as well as affect the way you chew. Also, your speech can be affected and cause you to slur or sound like you are mumbling. Dentures give you back the ability to enjoy every day activities without worry.

How Dentures Work

Your dentist will first make an impression of the ridges on the top and bottom or your mouth. This impression will be used to make the denture base that holds the artificial teeth. The impression is sent to a dental laboratory where it is fabricated. Once you receive the denture, your dentist will ensure that it fits properly.

While dentures do need to be replaced every five to eight years, they can be enjoyed with proper care and maintenance. Dentures are taken out at night to allow your gums and jaw bone time to relax. Your dentures should be cleaned with special denture cleaner and kept moist in water overnight.

We offer patients in the Burton, MI and surrounding area denture treatments so they can regain the look and function of a healthy smile. Please call our office at 810-736-9778 to schedule a consultation today.

I broke one of my molars, they created and installed a great crown that feels better than my original tooth. Nearly no pain and quick service (once I actually got the appointment) despite this covid stuff.
