Custom-Made Dentures For You
Missing several or all of your teeth means that the quality of your life is negatively affected every single day. You probably have trouble eating and speaking. You may also find yourself hiding your smile, feeling ashamed of all the gaps.
At Vaida Avery, DDS we want to provide a solution that is customized to you and your needs. Our main goal is to give you a radiant smile that functions well. If you need an upper or lower arch replaced, we offer both traditional and implant-supported dentures.
We can also discuss each denture option in depth with you and help you determine which one would be best. Whatever you choose, we’ll always work to ensure that your dentures are natural-looking and fit comfortably. We want your smile to be both functional and beautiful.
Choosing Your Dentures
When you come in for a consultation, we’ll perform a thorough examination before we give you any recommendations for your missing teeth. We want to ensure that you feel confident you are choosing the best option for you.
A traditional denture will replace your missing teeth and cover both your teeth and gums. Depending on the extent of your tooth loss, we can provide you with a partial denture or a full denture. These dentures are secured using a dental adhesive or by small metal clasps.
You will be able to remove these dentures when you sleep.
Implant-supported dentures are considered permanent and we typically recommend this solution. Your denture will be secured using dental implants. These small titanium posts are inserted into your jaw and provide a secure foundation for your denture.
The dental implants also provide the added benefit of keeping your jaw bone healthy. Because implants replace your tooth roots they provide stimulus for your jaw and help prevent it from receding. This typically gives you a more youthful appearance.
What to Expect
If you choose traditional dentures, we will take impressions of your remaining teeth and gums. These impressions help us create a customized prosthetic that will be comfortable and natural-looking. While we are creating your dentures, we’ll give you a set of temporary dentures for about ten days until your other dentures are created.
On the other hand, if you choose implant-supported dentures, we will first place your implants, which requires a relatively simple surgery. Once you have healed from your surgery, we’ll be able to attach the dentures.
We have a variety of choices for you when it comes to tooth restorations. Please give us a call and we can go over these options with you or schedule a consultation. The time is now to restore your smile and your quality of life!
