Are you missing some or all of your permanent teeth? Our dentist may recommend dentures to restore the functionality and beauty of your smile. Dentures are removable appliances that can replace some of or all of the teeth. They are placed on the gums and may be attached to the remaining natural teeth.
What Are the Different Types of Dentures?
Full dentures are used if all the permanent teeth are missing. If only some teeth are missing, a partial denture is used. Partial dentures are often attached to the existing teeth with metal clasps.
How Are Dentures Created?
After Dr. Justin J Deutsch determines what type of denture is right for you, your denture can be designed and created especially for your smile. This process takes a few weeks and several visits to our office. To design and prepare your denture, several impressions are made of your jaw. Measurements are also taken of how your jaws relate to each other. Using these measurements and impressions as a guide, models are made in the exact position and shape of your denture to be. Our dentist will have you try on the model so that the shape, fit, and color of the denture can be examined. Any needed adjustments will be made and then the final denture is created. Once your denture is ready, the fit, color, and shape will be checked once again and any final adjustments are made as needed.
