Adult tooth loss can be devastating. It can affect self-confidence, your diet and even your attitude. Whether teeth are lost due to trauma, decay or disease the result can be massive lifestyle changes to accommodate living without teeth.
A great smile and teeth to eat and speak with is not an outrageous request. A set of custom dentures can make it possible. Custom dentures will represent your style, your personality and even your physical build.
Today’s dentures have many advantages over their predecessors. They look more natural and are more aesthetically pleasing. Custom dentures will also fit better so they will be more comfortable to wear. Before fabricating your dentures, the dentist will take time to study your needs. Even the artificial gum tissue which surrounds your prosthetic teeth will be textured and shaded to match the tissues in your oral cavity.
Custom dentures allow the patient to have more input into their design. Patients can whiten the shade of their teeth or correct small flaws such as slightly gapped or crooked teeth. Patients work closely with the dentist to design their new personalized appliance. Dentures are a cost-effective restorative option which gives patients their smile and confidence back.
All dentures require a small adjustment period. Patients must get used to eating and speaking with their new appliance. They must also learn to care for their new dentures. Since dentures are made specifically for each unique individual, this adjustment period is typically shorter.
