Patients who are missing a number of teeth may be candidates for dentures which are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: full and partial.
The fit of your dentures can change over time, so they should be professionally relined every 1-2 years to ensure that they remain secure in your mouth and function properly. Small adjustments can be made to your denture. The aesthetic aspects of your appliance may be compromised to make up for structural concerns or a lack of space in your mouth. Denture adjustments are very important after you have received immediate dentures, as your mouth will heal and change following the extraction of your teeth. If the fit of your denture changes or if you are experiencing discomfort, or if your denture is damaged or broken, call us for an appointment. We can adjust or repair your denture as needed and restore it. Your denture needs to be in good condition in order to function properly and allow you to chew, speak, and smile with confidence!
