Dentures are custom-fitted, artificial replacements for missing teeth and the surrounding gum tissue. Often called false teeth. They are constructed with either plastic prosthetic teeth or porcelain teeth, dentures are removable and are a relatively affordable option for tooth replacement (although cost can vary significantly depending on denture composition).
Dr. Nitin Kapoor and Associates at Smile Town Dental Group can help you with the fabrication of new complete and partial dentures as well as repairs, relines, broken teeth, etc. Should you experience an emergency with your denture, call our office immediately so we may better accommodate you. Same day service may be available with adequate notice.
If your dentures are showing signs of wear such as:
- Teeth appear worn, stained, chipped,
Your facial contours appear hollow.
It may be time to design new dentures. Over time, your ridge (jaw bone) may resorb (dissolve away). This is a natural part of the aging process but can result in a denture that no longer fits or functions well, requires adhesives and does not support your facial contours.
A number of advancements have been made in modern dentistry that allow for dentures that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. However, if you are looking for a slightly more permanent solution for missing teeth, fixed dental bridges and dental implants are possible alternatives. If you are looking for a more secure way to retain your dentures so that you can enjoy all the foods you love and speak and smile with confidence, ask Dr. Nitin Kapoor about implant supported dentures. By far, the most securing fitting dentures available!
If you are wearing complete or partial dentures, Dr. Nitin Kapoor recommends regular oral examinations to monitor the condition of your dentures as well as the health of supporting teeth and soft tissues.
