Used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue, a denture is a removable dental appliance created to closely match your natural teeth. At Cholakis Dental, we offer both complete and partial dentures. A denture will help improve speaking and chewing, and also keep existing teeth from shifting out of position.
Reasons for dentures:
- Loss of all teeth in an arch (complete denture)
- Loss of several teeth in an arch (partial denture)
What does getting dentures involve?
Over the course of several appointments, we will take a mold of your teeth, and begin creating and testing different appliances to find the optimal shape, colour and size. We will then create your new dentures, book a test fitting, and make any adjustments necessary to ensure a perfect fit.
Caring for your new dentures
You may experience soreness, speech/chewing difficulties or increased saliva flow at first, however this will subside once your tissues and muscles get used to the dentures. Proper oral hygiene, diet and regular visits to your dentist will all play a part in looking after your dentures.
