Dentures restore the form and function of teeth while providing comfort and aesthetics for patients.
Benefits of Treatment with Dentures
Dentures provide many benefits to patients who are missing many teeth. Dentures:
- Prevent receding gums
- Make it easier to speak
- Restore oral function
- Prevent teeth from shifting
- Combat tooth decay and gum disease
- Prevent bone loss and facial sagging
- Provide facial definition for a more youthful appearance
Treatment with Dentures
Before treatment, Dr. White will examine the health of your teeth and gums and assess your bite and tooth structure. He will also review your specific dental needs, goals, and budget.
Dr. White uses the Turbyfill method to make dentures that are custom-fit to each patient. Using this method, Dr. White will take a dental impression of your teeth to create an accurate and detailed mold. When he takes this functional impression he will ask you to talk, chew, and smile. This is done so that Dr. White can see how your teeth move as well as their placement. You will wear a temporary denture, or the “first draft” of the denture for a few weeks as the dental mold is used to create your restoration. The denture will also be shaded to blend with your natural teeth.
Implant secured dentures using an All-On-Four type of treatment is also available to patients. During this treatment, Dr. White uses four or more dental implants to secure your denture in place. Dental implants ensure that patients do not need to worry about your denture shifting or falling out of your mouth. This solution is permanent as implants are able to integrate with the underlying bones.
