East Dental Care is pleased to offer our patients complete and partial removable dentures, as well as implant-supported dentures. If one or more of your natural teeth are remaining, a removable partial denture can be considered.
Those who have lost their teeth find both functional and aesthetic benefits from dentures. Well-made dentures allow the wearer to enjoy all kinds of food, whereas missing teeth or poor dentures significantly restrict chewing ability. Dentures also support the lips and cheeks, improving the appearance of a patient who has lost his or her natural teeth. They are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.
Dentures are custom-designed to fit each patient’s mouth, and skill and patience are required to create an effective pair. Poorly made dentures can cause significant discomfort and erode the gums and bones of the jaw, leading to greater dental problems. They help strengthen muscles controlling the expressions that require the support of your teeth, rid you of pronunciation problems caused by missing teeth, and aid with chewing.
We know that the term “false teeth” concerns a lot of people. However, your East Dental Care Dentist will take every step possible to ensure that yours looks as natural as possible. The base of the denture is designed to look like your gums and innovations in replacement tooth design have come a long way in making the false teeth look incredibly natural. Also, since the loss of all your teeth will have resulted in the loss of support for your lips, cheeks, and facial muscles, your new complete dentures will help fill out the shape of your face and instantly improve your smile!
Whether you are transitioning into new dentures, need your existing ones renewed, relined, or repaired, or are looking for more support for your dentures with implants, East Dental Care can help.
