Dentures Offer Our Patients Complete Smiles

July 9, 2024

When you have tooth loss too severe for a dental bridge, then you may need to instead obtain a set of dentures. With full and partial dentures, we can help you enjoy a complete smile and enjoy your favorite foods again. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist talks about our holistic approach to tooth replacement.

The Dangers of Advanced Tooth Loss

When you have lost a majority of your teeth, this could mean major impacts on your daily life. You could be severely limited in your meal options and may suffer from poor nutritional intake. Speaking clearly could be difficult, which impacts your ability to communicate. You could feel embarrassed about your appearance and avoid social situations too. To avoid embarrassment and regain function and beauty in your smile, you should consider a set of custom-made and metal-free dentures.

Designing Your Custom Dental Prosthetics

Our team has both full and partial dentures. A full replaces every tooth on one or both arches, and contains a full set of new teeth set in an acrylic base, which mimics the appearance of gum tissues. The teeth are made from materials like ceramic, which can absorb daily bite forces and offer a lifelike appearance. With a partial, you have multiple gaps spread out across your arch, which could be too complex to handle with a bridge, and could mean you have enough natural teeth in place that a full isn’t necessary. These contain new teeth set in a base, and the new teeth fit within the gaps of your smile. We custom-make these based on detailed digital images and impressions we take of your smile!

Securing Your New Smile

A full denture is held in place with suction or possibly a special adhesive. A partial contains metal clasps that attach to natural teeth and secure your prosthetic firmly in place. We will discuss how to secure both in place and how to care for them, including soaking and cleaning instructions, to ensure they can last. On average, your new teeth can stay in place for up to 5 to 10 years, requiring replacement as the jaw ridge changes shape. You will be able to eat your favorite foods and smile with confidence again!
