Dentures are a dental replacement appliance for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. Over time, you may have lost all of your natural teeth due to tooth decay, gum disease, injury, or a variety of other reasons. If you have lost your teeth, dentures can improve the appearance and function of your smile. With dentures, you will be able to eat and speak normally. Additionally, you will be able to smile confidently again. Removable dentures will not only restore the function of your teeth, but also your smile.
There are two kinds of removable dentures that replace your teeth and the surrounding tissues: partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures rest on metal framework, and are used when you still have some of your natural teeth. The crowns are anchored on some of your remaining natural teeth, and can be removed as needed.
On the other hand, complete dentures are used when all of your natural teeth are missing. With these dentures, a flesh-colored base fits comfortably over your gums. For your convenience, Jacaranda Dental offers both partial and complete dentures to fit your needs.
Thanks to today’s modern dental technology, dentures are made to look and feel like your natural teeth. Both partial and complete dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory to fit your mouth perfectly. Your dentist will take impressions of your mouth in order to make your dentures fit comfortably in your mouth. The results are a beautiful, restored and natural looking smile.
