What are Dentures?
Dentures are customized oral appliances which replace missing teeth. They are made of acrylic or resin, and may sometimes include metal. Dentures fit around your existing teeth or gums, and can be used for everything your original missing teeth were!
Why would I want Dentures?
Missing teeth can make eating or talking more difficult. They can also leave cosmetically ugly gaps in your smile. Dentures allow you to eat and talk normally, and nobody will be able to tell that you are missing teeth!
What are the different types of Dentures?
There are several different types of dentures. Complete dentures areston used for people that are missing all (or most of) their teeth. Partial dentures are more useful for those who still have some original teeth left.
Dentures can also be prepared immediately after any teeth are removed. These temporary dentures, allow you to never have to go without teeth.
What do I have to do to get Dentures?
At our Weston dentist office getting dentures requires several appointments over a timespan of approximately one month. The first step is to take an impression and measure the jaws to determine what shape and size the dentures will need to be. There will then be several appointments to try on a trial version and make any necessary adjustments to color, shape, or size. Finally, there will be a final fitting and adjustment with your completed dentures.
