For replacing teeth, dentures have been the most common option used for centuries. Of course, modern dentures are much more comfortable and natural appearing than their bone or wooden predecessors. When it comes to full dental restorations or partial replacements for several missing teeth, dentures are the most economical option. At Buford Family Dental, we can create beautiful, functional dentures to restore your smile if you have lost many or all your teeth.
Full dentures are designed to fit on your gums and are held in place with the help of a dental adhesive. The muscles in the mouth learn to work with dentures and after an initial adjustment period; most denture wearers become comfortable chewing, talking and laughing with their new teeth. When fitted properly, they can appear natural and have full function, giving you back your smile and supporting your facial muscles to help you look younger and more like yourself. They are less expensive than some other restorative options, making them an excellent choice for those on a tight budget or fixed income.
For those who still have many of their natural teeth, partial dentures can offer a cost-effective option to replace the gaps in their smile. Partial dentures fit around the existing teeth and fill the gaps with artificial teeth that look natural and are functional for chewing and speaking. Partial dentures are removable and should be taken out at night to be cleaned, then put in during the day to restore your smile.
