Dentures can be an excellent option for people who have lost multiple teeth or all of their teeth.
Dentures help restore an attractive smile, and provide the oral stability for comfortable chewing, improved speech, and jaw alignment.
At the office of Dr. Angela Berkovich, DMD, we will design your dentures with extreme precision for a comfortable fit!
Full dentures are recommended when all teeth have been lost or removed from the mouth. Full dentures slide over the gums and are held in place with strong cheek and mouth muscles. They allow for comfortable chewing and keep the mouth and its surrounding facial features in proper alignment. While we are in the process of creating your full dentures, we will provide temporary dentures to keep your oral function and appearance in tact.
Partial dentures fill the gaps left by missing teeth. Partial dentures are held in place with either metal or tooth-colored clasps that are discreetly placed and attached to your natural teeth. Usually made of resin or metal, partial dentures allow more comfortable and effective chewing, improved speech, and prevent sagging of the cheeks and lips. An excellent choice for those with multiple missing teeth.
Caring For Your Dentures
There is a belief among many that once a person has dentures, they no longer need regular dental care. Similar to patients with natural teeth, denture wearers require regular exams to ensure their health, comfort, and appearance. Gum tissues are in a constant state of change and need to be monitored. Periodic relining of the dentures may be necessary to ensure a tight and comfortable fit.
