A lot of confidence comes with a beautiful smile. Everyone needs a complete smile, whether it’s for self-esteem at work, so they can laugh more with their family, or so they can enjoy their favorite foods with ease.
If you are missing teeth, you need personalized dentures. Dr. Farrell provides customized denture services that meets the needs of our unique patients.
We would be pleased to create your one-of-a-kind dentures that not only look good, but also feel natural.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are removable replacement teeth. They can replace a few teeth or a full arch of teeth.
Full dentures replace a full arch of teeth, and are given to patients after all of the damaged teeth have fallen out or have been extracted. Conventional full dentures are placed after the gum tissue has healed, whereas immediate full dentures can be placed directly after the tooth extraction.
Partial dentures use a metal frame to attach to the natural teeth and fill the gaps where permanent teeth have been lost.
Taking Care of Your Dentures
Dentures require diligent maintenance, just like natural teeth. Brush and floss daily to keep bacteria from accumulating inside your mouth. Other suggestions include:
- When handling your dentures, use caution. They could break easily, so stand over something like a sink full of water.
- Use a soft-bristled brush and brush frequently, while being careful not to break or bend the plastic.
- Keep dentures moist when you are not wearing them.
- If your dentures break, contact our office as soon as possible.
Chew, Speak, and Smile Again!
Dentures can solve a wide range of problems for people with missing or severely damaged teeth. Dentures allow patients to use their mouths properly again, so they can speak, chew, and smile without hesitation.
