Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever. Whether full or partial, your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you.
The biggest advancement in dentures has come with the ability to stabilize them with dental implants. The biggest complaint of denture wearers is often the mobility of the appliance on the soft tissue. Implants solve this problem by anchoring the denture to fixed points in the jaw bone making them MUCH more stable and comfortable. Additionally, implant supported denture patients are now able to eat foods they had previously been unable to, such as apples and corn straight off the cob.
