Missing teeth can create a host of aesthetic and functional problems including sagging facial muscles, inability to eat certain foods and speech impediments. Dentures may be your best solution if youíve lost your natural teeth due to periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury.
Fitting a patient for dentures does not have to be a traumatic experience. During the preliminary visit, the remaining teeth are removed and a model is made of the patientís jaw. An immediate, temporary denture may be fitted so the patient does not have to be without teeth while the mouth tissue heals. Once the mouth tissue is completely healed, the patient is fitted with their custom dentures.
