Missing Teeth? Are Dentures For You?


What Types of Dentures are Available and How to Know You're a Good Candidate for Them.


One major sign that you may be a good candidate for dentures is if you have missing teeth. Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your self-confidence, causing you to feel embarrassed or insecure about your smile. Dentures can help to restore your confidence by improving the appearance of your teeth and restoring your ability to eat and speak with ease.

They can create a custom solution that meets your unique needs and restores your confidence. With their help, you can enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile that you're proud to show off.


What are Dentures?


Dentures are removable prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They can improve your ability to eat and speak comfortably, enhance your appearance, and boost your self-confidence. If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be a good candidate for dentures. To determine if dentures are the right choice for you, it's important to schedule a consultation with a specialized dentist or prosthodontist. They will examine your mouth, take X-rays, and discuss your dental history and goals to determine the best treatment plan for you. Factors such as your age, overall health, and the condition of your remaining teeth and gums will also be taken into consideration.


At Smile Stop Dentures and Implants, their team of experts can help you understand your options and make an informed decision about your dental health. Whether you need complete or partial dentures, implant-supported dentures, or denture repair services, they can provide the personalized care you need to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. They offer same-day dentures and flexible payment plans to make dentures more accessible to their patients.


There are two main types of dentures: complete and partial.


Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw are missing. They consist of a flesh-colored acrylic base that fits over your gums and a full set of artificial teeth. The process of getting complete dentures typically involves several steps, beginning with an initial consultation with a specialized dentist or prosthodontist. During this appointment, they will examine your mouth, take impressions of your gums, and discuss your goals and expectations for your new dentures. From there, they will create a customized treatment plan, which may involve one or more appointments for fittings and adjustments. Once your dentures are ready, your dentist will ensure that they fit comfortably and securely in your mouth, and provide instructions for care and maintenance. It may take some time to adjust to wearing dentures, but with proper care and practice, you can enjoy all of the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile.


Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when some of the teeth are missing. They consist of a metal or acrylic framework that attaches to your remaining teeth and supports one or more artificial teeth. The process of getting partial dentures is similar to that of getting complete dentures but may involve additional steps to ensure a precise fit. After an initial consultation with a specialized dentist or prosthodontist, they will take impressions of your mouth and create a customized treatment plan. Depending on the number and location of your missing teeth, you may need one or more appointments for fittings and adjustments. Partial dentures are designed to fit around your existing teeth, and may be secured in place using clasps or other attachments. Your dentist will ensure that your partial dentures fit comfortably and securely, and provide instructions for care and maintenance. Again, with proper care and practice, you can enjoy all of the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile.


Implant-Supported Dentures

Smile Stop Dentures and Implants also offers implant-supported dentures that are anchored to dental implants surgically placed in your jawbone. They provide a more stable and comfortable fit than removable dentures and can improve your ability to eat and speak. The process of getting implant-supported dentures involves a series of steps that typically take several months to complete. After an initial consultation with a specialized dentist or prosthodontist, they will take X-rays and impressions of your mouth to determine the ideal location and placement of your dental implants. Once your implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, you will need several months to allow them to fuse with the bone and create a strong foundation for your new dentures. In the meantime, you may be provided with temporary dentures or other tooth replacement options. Once your implants have fully integrated, your dentist will attach special abutments to your implants, which will serve as anchors for your new dentures. Finally, your customized dentures will be attached to the abutments, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit. With implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy all of the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile, with the added stability and security that comes with dental implants. At Smile Stop Dentures and Implants, their team of experts can guide you through every step of the process and provide the personalized care you need to achieve optimal results.
