Replace Your Aging Dentures & Restore Your Smile
If your dentures don’t seem to be fitting right or are causing you pain, then it might be time for a new set. While it varies from person to person, most people need their dentures replaced every three to eight years.
Have you never had dentures before? If you are missing teeth or suffering from aging teeth, then you might be a good candidate. They differ from other cosmetic solutions in that they are removable and provide more flexibility.
Need New Dentures?
Some people who are missing teeth choose to go with permanent cosmetic treatments, like bridges and implants. However, dentures are an affordable option that are often best for people who have lost a lot of teeth. The process of getting dentures is also typically shorter than most cosmetic procedures.
Similar to a bridge, partial dentures cover only a section if missing teeth. This type of denture only covers a small section of missing teeth, and the appliance is supported by your remaining teeth and gums. A precision partial denture is removable and has internal attachments rather than clasps that attach to the adjacent crowns.
Complete dentures can replace a full set of teeth on the upper or lower levels. These appliances use suction to stay in place, and they can be fitted once your natural teeth have been removed and the gum has healed.
If you get dentures, it’s important to still routinely go to the dentist to ensure they are properly fitting.
