Dentures are a permanent cover for missing teeth. They are used for restoring purpose and beauty to your smile. Dentures are custom-made to mimic the shape of your natural teeth and match with the rest of your mouth. You can change the fit of your dentures as required to ensure comfort and proper function.
There are two kinds of dentures: complete and partial. Partial dentures are used to replace one or more missing teeth in small groups while some natural teeth remain. Not filling in the spaces left by missing teeth can cause the teeth around them to shift. Complete dentures will replace the full upper and/or lower sets of teeth.
Even though they’re artificial, dentures should still be cleaned regularly, and you should keep up your regular dental appointments. They’ll also need to be replaced every five years. Our team can evaluate whether your dentures should be refitted or replaced. If you’re a good candidate for dentures, Glen Park Family Dentistry can help you restore your smile.
