How dentures from your Dearborn Heights dentist can restore your smile
Are you embarrassed to smile because of missing teeth? Do you have an old denture that doesn’t fit and moves around? Are you
uncomfortable with the way you look because of an old denture? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to get your smile back with a new denture! Your dentists at Cambridge Dental Group in Dearborn Heights, Michigan want to help you explore what a new denture can do for you.
Choosing a denture is an important decision and one you shouldn’t make alone. You want a denture that fits well and is comfortable, but you also want a denture that is natural-looking and improves the way you look. Thankfully, today’s dentures are made of state-of-the-art materials using only the best tools and techniques.
At Cambridge Dental Group you can choose to have implants to support the denture. Implants help to preserve the bone in your jaw and add stability to the denture. The denture is simply snapped onto the implants. This type of denture is called an implant-retained denture.
You can also elect not to have implants, and just choose the appliance itself. You can choose from these dentures to replace a full arch of teeth:
Immediate dentures which are placed immediately after teeth are extracted; when your tissue has healed, a more permanent conventional denture is custom-made for you. The advantage of immediate dentures is that you won’t have to live your life without teeth.
Conventional dentures which are made after your tissue has healed completely, usually in 6 to 8 weeks; the advantage of conventional dentures is that you won’t have to get used to two different dentures. The denture is created based on impressions of your gums for a proper fit.
If you are missing just a few teeth, a removable partial denture is a great choice to replace teeth. Partials are supported by clasps which hook onto the adjacent teeth on both sides.
It’s time to stop being embarrassed about missing teeth or an old denture. It’s time to get your smile back with a new denture. You deserve to be able to eat the foods you love and look great too.
