Making Good Choices
We want to help you to make an informed decision when it comes to replacing missing or damaged teeth. Dr. Wallin has invested in the training, technology, and tools you’ll need to get back on track following tooth loss as an adult. That’s why we offer three kinds of dentures at our Longmont, CO dental office.
Full dentures are what most folks have in mind when considering dentures. They feature realistic, durable teeth set in a gum-colored base. They replace all the teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth. The shape of the base, combined with a non-toxic adhesive, keeps them in place when you chew. Full dentures can be removed each night.
Partial dentures are often used when you still have some of your natural teeth. They connect to clasps attached to those teeth, so like with full dentures, you can remove them and then put them back on without any hassles.
Dental implant overdentures are a special kind of traditional dentures. First, you receive some dental implants which look just like real teeth. Then the dentures are connected to the implants, which holds your dentures in place securely. These also tend to feel more natural when in place.
Assessing Your Needs
What makes someone sure that they will need dentures? That varies according to everyone’s unique situation, but here are some signs that you might need dentures.
- Your teeth have a lot of cavities: If you have enough teeth that are very damaged, you might need dentures to get a healthy, strong smile.
- You’ve already lost a few teeth: You can lose teeth due to sports, big cavities, and more.
- You don’t want to smile: It’s easy to feel awkward and embarrassed about your smile when it has large gaps in it. Dentures can give you back the confidence you crave.
Don’t forget that dentures are for anyone who needs them, and younger patients are getting dentures more than they used to. We’ll help you decide the best way forward when you come in for your consultation.
