If you have lost multiple teeth, dentures may be the right choice for restoring your smile’s beauty, function, and health. A denture is a removable oral appliance used to replace multiple teeth that have been lost or removed. At i smile mathis ferry dentistry, we offer dentures to replace all or just a few of your teeth. A complete (full) denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a dental arch. Made up of prosthetic teeth set into a pink, gum-colored base, a complete denture can be worn in the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches. Dr. Wendy S. Haefner may recommend using a denture adhesive to hold the appliance in place. Partial dentures, on the other hand, are used to replace multiple teeth when some of your natural teeth still remain. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the neighboring teeth to provide stability.
When in place, your dentures can:
• Restore the natural volume and shape of your face
• Improve your ability to properly speak, chew, and eat
• Enhance the beauty of your smile and your overall appearance
