Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth. A denture consists of a plate or frame holding one or more artificial teeth in place. Dentures can take some getting used to, and while they may never feel the same as your original teeth, they can look natural and are now more comfortable than ever. Dr. My Le is pleased to offer Full & Partial Dentures, here at 16TH AVENUE DENTAL!
Full Dentures are the most common type of dentures that made. Full dentures are exactly as their name implies; they replace all of the teeth in either the upper or lower arch.
After the affected teeth are removed, a full denture can be crafted to fit either the upper arch, lower arch or both. The upper denture has a pink denture base that extends across the roof of the mouth to create suction and help keep the denture in place. The lower denture is u-shaped and is designed to fit snugly along the bottom ridge of the jaw.
The term “false teeth” concerns a lot of people. However, we take every step to ensure that your dentures look as natural as possible. Innovations in replacement tooth design have come a long way in making the false teeth look incredibly natural. Also, since the loss of teeth may have resulted in the loss of support for your lips, cheeks, and facial muscles, your new full denture will help fill out the shape of your face and instantly improve your smile!
At 16TH AVENUE DENTAL, we work with you to create natural looking dentures that are also comfortable. Since losing teeth changes your face shape, replacing missing teeth with a denture will help support your lips, cheeks, and facial muscles, correcting your face shape and smile at the same time!
Patients who are missing one or more teeth, benefit from removable partial denture to reestablish the function of their mouth. Partial dentures are made from durable materials that resemble your gum tissue and missing teeth. The metal framework is designed to clip onto the remaining natural teeth in order to hold the denture securely in place.
