Missing teeth create problems, especially when eating or feeling confident about your smile. Since proper nutrition is so important to good overall health, replacing missing teeth should be a high priority for everyone.
We also believe that feeling confident about the appearance of your smile can improve your quality of life by making social situations more comfortable, especially when they involve a delicious meal!
Benefits of Dentures
Dental implants are a popular tooth-replacement option, but many of our patients seek an alternative because of health or budget limitations. Dentures have provided a reliable way to replace missing teeth for centuries. Their function and appearance have improved dramatically over the last few decades because of improved knowledge regarding the function of the jaw and bite and because of advancements in the materials we use in their creation.
We create dentures in our Jensen Beach, FL dental office with two main goals in mind: function and esthetics.
How Dentures Fit
Complete dentures use the bone and suction from your upper jaw and the bony ridge from your lower jaw to stay in place. For some patients, this works sufficiently and their dentures stay put until they remove them at night.
As you might imagine, bone loss can pose a challenge when creating dentures for some patients. We can use dental implants to add stability so that your dentures do not move when you chew or laugh.
No Fake-Looking Smiles
Dentures look better than ever thanks to the wide variety of options when choosing denture teeth. The color, shading and sizes available allow us to make choices for your smile that give you an attractive outcome. We can talk about your vision for your new smile at your denture consultation appointment.
