There are a number of reasons one may need dentures. Whether from disease, malnutrition or genetic disorders, sometimes it is necessary for all of a patient’s lower or upper teeth to be extracted. While this can sound devastating, dentures can provide another chance for a perfect smile. Accent On Dentistry in Anchorage, AK have a gentle, and caring team that can help you choose which type of denture if right for you.
Complete and intermediate dentures
After your teeth are removed, it’s important to have a set of complete dentures ordered for your mouth. They help with chewing, facial structure support and improve speech. It can take up to six months for your gums to heal and your bone to realign after having teeth removed.
While you are waiting, you can use Immediate dentures as an alternative, which will provide your mouth with a full set of teeth.
If complete dentures are not necessary, one can choose to have Partial dentures inserted. They are great for replacing a line of missing teeth, and are secured to your remaining teeth with clasps.
No matter what dentures you choose, you can be assured to receive high quality, natural-looking dentures that match your facial structure and desired tooth color. For more information over dentures or to set up a free consultation, please contact us today.
