Dentist Maumee & Toledo, OH
When you lost teeth it affects your appearance as well as your ability to eat and speak normally. Our experienced dentist may recommend dentures to replace your missing teeth and give you back a confident smile and a healthier quality of life.
Dentures are a removable oral appliance consisting of prosthetic teeth set into a plastic or acrylic base, and are usually recommended for patients who have lost many or all their teeth. There are two main types of dentures:
- Complete dentures – this type of denture is recommended to replace an entire arch of teeth. Our dentist may recommend them for one arch or for both arches, depending on your needs.
- Partial dentures – these are recommended when you have some natural teeth remaining. Partials include thin clasps or a framework with attaches to your remaining teeth to anchor the denture in your mouth.
Dentures help improve your appearance and quality of life in many ways, such as improving your ability to speak and eat, restoring your natural facial volume and giving you back your smile. Your appliance will be custom-made to fit your mouth perfectly and give you the most aesthetic, secure and comfortable result possible. It may take several appointments to ensure that your dentures are adjusted just right for your smile.
Our dentist and team will also provide you with instructions on caring for your dentures and will check your appliance for any signs of wear or damage at each of your regular dental appointments. If needed we will provide repairs or other maintenance to keep your dentures working optimally for you.
