When you are missing all of your teeth in one or both jaws, the most common solution is a full set of dentures. Dentures can help restore the beauty of a full smile and make speaking and eating easier. A prosthodontist is the best-equipped doctor to create a set of dentures to make you look and feel your best.
Full dentures are replacement teeth fitted into an acrylic base that will cover the existing gums and bone. Upper dentures fit across the roof of your mouth and lower dentures are u-shaped and fit over the gums and bone. These replace all of the existing teeth and can create a beautiful and functional smile. Without denture replacements, chewing may become difficult and cause jaw pain and headaches. Dentures can help stabilize the mouth and prevent damage to receding gums and bone structures. Dentures that are fit correctly to your mouth are comfortable and functional to restore normal eating and speaking habits.
