If you are looking to replace missing teeth with dentures, Dr. Dana Walters can help.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are removable teeth that can come in partial dentures and complete dentures depending on the remaining teeth. Dentures are made to mimic the gum tissue and are often attached through a metal framework or adhesives. Permanent dentures can also be attached with dental implants. Many adults lose teeth as a result of aging or gum disease, but a full set of teeth is important to eat right, speak clearly, and feel confident.
First, we can determine what kind of dentures you need and if any teeth need to be removed before fitting. Then we help make them fit, feel, and look as natural as possible. Dr. Walters can even help you make your old set of dentures feel more comfortable and look like your own set of permanent teeth.
Even with dentures, oral hygiene is important. Regular visits to the dentist are needed to make sure everything still fits and works as it should and that the rest of your mouth is in good health.
Initially, dentures may feel awkward and take some getting used to, but shortly after being fit properly, the false teeth will begin to feel completely natural.
Whether it’s maintenance or making a new set of teeth, Dr. Walters can help you and your dentures look and feel your best!
