Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Dentures in Waterford are an excellent option for people who are missing several, most of, or all of their teeth. Depending on the location and number of teeth that are missing, a customized plan is made for each patient so their smile will be both comfortable and functional. For anyone with existing oral health issues, like periodontal disease or tooth decay, these will need to be treated before moving forward in the process of getting dentures. It is important that your restored smile is both aesthetically pleasing and in good health!
Types of Dentures
There are a couple different options out there when it comes to dentures. During your initial consultation with Dr. Patel, it will be determined which one is the best option to restore your smile.
If you’re missing several teeth, partial dentures may be an excellent choice for you. A partial consists of one or more custom-made replacement teeth that are set into a gum-colored base. They’re carefully designed to fit perfectly around and between your remaining teeth to seamlessly fill in the gaps like puzzle pieces. Instead of relying on suction, partial dentures are held in place with metal clasps that wrap around your natural tooth structure for a secure fit.
A full set of dentures is a classic way to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Your custom-made prosthetic will feature replacement teeth that are just the right size, shape, and color for your unique mouth. They’ll be set into a gum-colored base that’s designed to fit perfectly on top of your gum ridge. The natural suction provided by the close fit combined with your cheek and tongue muscles as well as a little bit of denture adhesive all keep your new smile firmly in place.
