Along with implants, dentures are an aesthetic and effective option for replacing missing teeth. While they can take some getting used to, today’s dentures are natural-looking and more comfortable than ever.
Guba Dental can custom-create dentures for you using state of the art dental laboratories and the unique impressions we take of your mouth. Whether you need a full set to replace a majority of teeth, or simply a partial set to replace a few or even one row, we work hard to explain all holistic repercussions to you, as well as costs.
Full dentures are generally flesh-colored, acrylic devices that fit comfortably over your gums. The upper denture set covers the roof of your mouth and offers stabilized tooth replacements. The lower dentures – often shaped like a horseshoe – attach to your mobile, lower jaw and are fabricated to accommodate your tongue.
Partial dentures use the natural framework of your teeth to rest comfortably in place. Crowns can also be utilized in cooperation with the partial dentures and serve as useful anchors inside your mouth. Partial dentures make an excellent, removable alternative to bridges.
Your dentures may need to be readjusted, relined, rebased, or remade from time to time due to normal wear. This is common, as are normal changes in your mouth as you age, loosening due to chewing, and other factors that may make your dentures move.
You should always see your dentists at Guba Dental at least once every year to ensure that your dentures are fitting properly and for ways to reduce normal wear and tear.
