If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth, you may be all too familiar with the problems that those gaps in your mouth can cause. You may find it difficult to eat a balanced diet, and you might be embarrassed by the aesthetic consequences of an incomplete smile. Fortunately, modern dentistry offers a number of effective tooth replacement options, including dentures. The team at the Center for Contemporary denture is proud to provide these comfortable, natural-looking prosthetics.
A denture is a custom-made dental prosthetic that consists of a gum-colored base that supports a row of artificial teeth. They are usually constructed out of acrylic. Full dentures replace an entire arch of lost teeth. They stay in place with the help of natural suction or a mild adhesive. A partial denture fits in around the remaining natural teeth. Small attachments help it to remain secure during eating and speaking.
Some patients opt for implant-retained dentures, which are anchored in the jawbone via prosthetic tooth roots. They tend to be much sturdier and longer-lasting than their traditional counterparts.
