What are dentures?
Dentures are a removable appliance made from a strong acrylic material with or without metal. Modern dentures are esthetically pleasing and functional. Ensuring you are able to enjoy your life with confidence. Whether you have one missing tooth or all of your teeth, a denture can be designed to improve your chewing, talking, and smiling.
What Causes Tooth Loss?
Tooth loss can occur due to a variety of reasons such as poor hygiene leading to gum disease and cavities, an injury, or uncontrolled diseases (such as diabetes). We aim to first identify the problem that resulted in tooth loss to ensure we provide the best plan for moving forward.
At Cooley Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we understand the fear and concern associated often associated with getting your first set of partial or complete dentures. We are here to answer any questions and can help you choose whether a partial denture or a complete denture is right for you. We will provide a clear explanation to make sure you understand the process every step of the way, and make the best decision to reach your goals.
At Cooley Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we provide immediate dentures for most patients with teeth remaining. Immediate dentures use special techniques to ensure you never go without your front teeth during the fabrication of your denture. We use specialized techniques and a highly-skilled laboratory to ensure you get the denture you desire in a timely process.
Needing a New Denture?
When an older denture has become loose, there are several options to improve functionality. In some cases, the existing denture can be relined to improve fit. In other cases, a new denture is needed to account for the additional bone loss and changes in soft tissue. If your denture is not staying in, but is adapted well, adding implants can provide retention by having the denture “snap onto” the implant.
Whatever your denture needs are, the team at Cooley Cosmetic and Family Dental are here to help you. Give us a call to schedule an appointment with one of our caring dentists.
