Patients with missing teeth can get their smiles back with dentures. Dentures are a solution to both cosmetic and functional concerns relating to missing teeth. With a restored smile, you’ll look and feel more youthful, as well as eat and speak with ease. If you’ve lost your natural teeth, dentures can improve your quality of life in more ways than one.
What Are Full Dentures?
A denture is a removable dental fixture used to replace missing teeth and the nearby gum tissue. Full dentures feature a gum-colored, acrylic base with artificial teeth. The denture is designed to seal over the gums for a secure fit. A full upper denture has a plate that lays over the roof of the mouth, while a full lower denture sits over the top of the lower gums.
With Dr. Obrochta/Dr. Lowry’s expert care, full dentures can look like your natural teeth. Our office uses advanced technology to create metal-free dentures that are lightweight, comfortable, and attractive. When you smile with your full denture in place, no one will know that it’s not your natural smile.
Creating Your Custom Dentures
To create your full dentures, we’ll start by taking impressions and measurements of your jaw. We can then create models of your dentures to try. From these models, we can make adjustments to the fit, color, and shape as needed.
After casting a final denture, we can make small adjustments to achieve the perfect fit. It may take a few weeks to get accustomed to wearing your new full dentures. Over time, the dentures will feel natural and comfortable.
The Benefits of Full Dentures
Restore Your Complete Smile
Patients who have missing teeth often feel self-conscious about their smiles. Missing teeth can lower your confidence and self-image, even causing you to avoid smiling in social situations. Replacing your missing teeth with a full denture will free you from this insecurity by restoring your complete, healthy smile.
