Dentures are false teeth placed in the mouth to fill in the gaps where tooth loss has occurred.
If you’ve lost any of your teeth, you may struggle to eat certain foods or even feel embarrassed by the appearance of your smile. There are several restorative dental processes to overcome this common problem. At Drs. Batten & Heath Family Dentistry, we take a personalized approach to each individual patient we serve, addressing the underlying cause of missing teeth and figuring out the best treatment option. In some cases, dentures are the best solution. Dentures are false teeth placed in the mouth to fill in the gaps where tooth loss has occurred.
Depending on your situation, you may need partial dentures to fit alongside any natural teeth remaining, or you may need full dentures due to a more extensive dental issue that has caused complete tooth loss. Full-set dentures are made after any natural teeth have been removed and all the gum tissue below has fully healed. Immediate dentures can also be placed as soon as any teeth have been extracted, although these dentures typically have to be adjusted during the healing process.
Dentures are removable and require proper care to last. You need to remove, rinse, and clean the dentures after you eat, as well as clean your gums and mouth often.
