If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, American Dental Solutions can replace your missing teeth and your smile with full dentures.
A full denture is a removable appliance that replaces all of your natural teeth. With full dentures, a flesh-colored acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the roof of your mouth, while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue. The full denture is placed in the mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed – a process that can take between six and eight weeks.
Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making you look older. With a full denture, you’ll still be able to eat and speak – things that most people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost. While dentures take some getting used to and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that little change in appearance will be noticeable and are more comfortable than ever. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile and help fill out the appearance of your face and profile.
