If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and make for a great smile.
Complete dentures, also referred to as full dentures, replace a full set of teeth. To replace teeth in the upper jaw, these dentures include a flesh-colored acrylic base that covers the gums and the roof of the mouth, allowing an entire set of false teeth to sit firmly. Full dentures for the lower mouth are similar, but the acrylic base is shaped like a horseshoe to avoid covering the tongue.
By seeking complete dentures for your missing teeth, you will be benefiting your appearance and your overall health. Without support that dentures provide, facial muscles can sag and make a person look older. Dentures also provide the ability to eat comfortably and speak with ease. These are things that people can often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost. If you’ve lost teeth, know that there is a solution to restore functionality and confidence in your smile.
