Speaking, smiling and eating – they’re three things that many of us take for granted on a daily basis. But, for those who have lost some (or all) of their teeth as the result of decay, disease or injury, the ability to speak, smile and eat can be among the most daunting tasks of daily life. There may be sadness in the inability to smile in family photos and frustration that you can’t do all the things you did when you had a full set of teeth.
The good news is, there’s hope – in the form of dentures. And trust us when we say that dentures have come a long way over the years.
Conventional Dentures – Making Your Smile as Good as, or Better Than New
Conventional dentures, also known as a full denture, are created and set into the mouth once all remaining teeth have been removed and the gums and other affected tissues have had a chance to properly heal. In this case, the dentist takes detailed measurements of the patients mouth and creates models during the initial visit. The measurements are then sent to a lab where they are used by a professional to create the final denture that will be put in place in the patients mouth.
As far as the actual design of a denture, today’s modern dentures look like anything BUT dentures. When you smile, we want your teeth to look as natural as possible. The process we use will let you choose the shade of your teeth and will ensure that every smile you give the world looks natural and healthy. It’s even possible in some cases to recreate your old smile from photos. And, if you are already a denture wearer, and simply need new dentures, we can re-create the smile you’ve known for years.
For new denture wearers, it’s important that your dentures are proportionate to your particular facial features and overall shape. We’re able to help you with this important task – and also welcome you to have family members and loved ones give input to help you choose the best smile for your face.
Self Confidence and a White Smile – It’s a Makeover for Your Smile
Getting new dentures is much like having your own personal dental makeover as getting dentures dramatically improves your smile as well as your self-confidence. It can be an emotional journey once the final dentures are delivered and placed in the mouth. For many, the boost in self confidence is instant and unshakable.
Let’s not forget the fact that you’ll be able to eat just about anything you would with a natural set of healthy teeth. And, in case you were wondering – the same oral care rules that apply to natural teeth apply to dentures as well – and take on even greater importance when you have dentures. Brushing the gums, palate and tongue every day before inserting dentures goes a long way toward the prevention of plaque and helps stimulate healthy circulation throughout the tissues in the mouth.
Your mouth deserves to have the best smile possible. And dentures can help facilitate this. Are you ready to start the process toward a new smile that will brighten your life? Schedule an appointment today and let us help find the denture solution that’s perfect for you and your mouth.
