Enjoy complete dentures and partials for tooth replacement
Missing teeth are not only an inconvenience. It can impact your oral health, your ability to speak, and your confidence in your smile. When considering tooth replacement options at Your Smile Dental Wellness Center, you can talk to Dr. Yvonne Caton-Hospedales to determine if solutions such as full or removable partial dentures are right for you.
What are dentures?
Dentures are replacement teeth. Some are set in a pink gum-like base, while others use a metal framework and false teeth to slide into place using the remaining teeth for support. They can be used to replace all of the teeth on the top or bottom arch, or they can be partial dentures that only replace some of the teeth.
What are the benefits of dentures?
There are many advantages to the patients’ choosing dentures as their desired tooth replacement solution, including:
- Improved ability to speak clearly
- Easier time eating and digesting food
- Increased confidence in your smile
Are there different types of dentures?
Yes, there are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are best when all the teeth on an arch need to be replaced. Partial dentures are best when several natural teeth remain and are used for filling in the gaps.
What is the process of getting dentures?
The process of obtaining dentures usually takes a few visits to Your Smile Dental Wellness Center. During the first visit, Dr. Caton-Hospedales will take impressions of your mouth which will be used to create a duplicate of your teeth. This model is then used to create your custom dentures.
On your second visit, you will try your dentures to ensure they fit correctly and look natural. Once you and Dr. Caton-Hospedales are happy with the fit and appearance, the dentures will be ready for use. Proper care instructions are given at this time to ensure your restorations last as long as possible!
