Made to appear natural, a denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue.
WHY DENTURES MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU:
- Complete Denture - Replaces all teeth in an arch.
- Partial Denture - Loss of several teeth in an arch.
- Enhancing smile and facial tissues.
- Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.
Whether you are missing all of your teeth or just a few, there is a denture option designed to accommodate your needs. Dr. Johnson or Dr. Zokol will work with you to decide whether a partial or complete denture is right for you.
Partial dentures are recommended when some of your natural teeth still remain and will ensure that tooth shifting does not occur. Complete dentures are recommended to restore the functionality and smiles of those with no remaining natural teeth.
If you believe a complete denture is right for you, there are two additional options for you to choose from. “Conventional” dentures are created after the natural teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed for approximately 4 to 6 weeks. “Immediate” dentures require no waiting time and allow the denture to be placed in your mouth immediately after your natural teeth have been extracted. Once the tissues heal and shrink, adjustments or relines will need to be made to ensure a proper fit.
