Dentures and Partial Dentures
Dentures and partial dentures are prescribed in order to replace natural teeth that are missing and are designed to have the look and feel of natural teeth. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and can improve your dental health as well as revive supporting tissue.
You will need either complete or partial dentures, depending on how many teeth you have lost. Complete dentures substitute for all the teeth on your upper or lower jaw, while partial dentures are used when some original teeth remain. A partial denture will fill in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevent other teeth from moving.
Getting Fitted for Dentures
To ensure the best fit, Dr. Liner or Dr. Ward will take detailed impressions and measurements for the technicians who will create your custom dentures. When you return, the dentist can check for proper color, shape, and fit. At the last visit, your doctor will adjust and place the completed denture to produce a natural, comfortable smile. Some patients experience soreness, increased saliva, and speech or chewing difficulty, but these issues will subside as your mouth adjusts to the dentures.
