If you are missing teeth, full or partial dentures may be the ideal solution for you. A few appointments will be necessary to provide you with the perfect fit.
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable prosthetics designed to help people with missing teeth perform everyday tasks, like eating and speaking, that would otherwise be difficult. They also help correct the mouth’s sunken, collapsed appearance that occurs from missing teeth.
Why do dentures loosen over time?
Dentures loosen over time due to bone loss after teeth are extracted.
As you age, your jawbone changes. Most dentures will fit well when they are first made, but over time, they will become loose and may irritate areas of your mouth. This usually can be resolved by having them adjusted or relined by the dentist. Implants may also be placed and connected to your denture to help alleviate the frustration caused by loose dentures.
