Dentures and Partials
A denture is a removable appliance that replaces teeth missing due to decay, trauma, or gum disease. It will allow you to eat and speak, and keep your facial muscles from sagging. If you still have some of your teeth, we may recommend a removable partial denture that attaches to the healthy teeth.
It is natural for new dentures to feel a little awkward and even cause some minor irritation. Also, over time, natural shifts in the structure of your mouth may cause dentures to fit poorly. We will gladly schedule follow-up appointments to ensure the best fit, and teach you how to take care of your dentures to remove food particles and plaque with daily brushing. And don’t forget that even if you wear full dentures, you will still need to brush your gums and tongue.
