Dentures represent one of the most versatile solutions for concealing tooth loss and restoring dental health. This option works best for patients with the following qualities:
• Good general health. Patients with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, experience a high risk of thrush and other infections when using dentures.
• Healthy gums. Dentures sit directly against the gums and in close proximity to other soft tissues. Good oral health minimizes the irritation or scratches this proximity can cause.
• Ineligible for other tooth replacement options. Implants or bridges can help some patients, but dentures tend to be more accessible.
• Significant or total tooth loss. Full or partial dentures can replace gaps of three teeth or more.
If you aren't sure whether or not dentures are your best option, simply ask our helpful staff. We provide many types of cosmetic dentistry and can help you weigh your options.
We offer both traditional dentures and immediate dentures, which can be place right after an extraction so you don't have to worry about gaps in your smile.
