Dentures are removable appliances that are used to replace missing teeth. Dentures are also used to provide support for the lips and cheeks, so that your facial structure will not change due to missing teeth. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth in the mouth are missing and partial dentures are used when you still have natural teeth remaining.
There are two types of complete dentures. These are:
When you first receive your dentures, it’s normal for them to feel a little strange. They will take some getting used to. But the muscles in your cheeks and tongue will eventually learn how to keep the dentures in place when you’re speaking and eating. You’ll also become more comfortable putting them in and removing them.
Even if you have dentures, it’s still important to visit our office for regular dental exams. We can make any necessary adjustments to the dentures, and check the oral tissues for problems or disease.
