Someone holding up a set of partial denturesDentures are a type of removable fixture that replaces the missing teeth in your mouth. They can be made from a variety of materials, and they are made to be custom-fitted to your mouth and jaws for the most comfort while you are talking, chewing, or doing anything else with your mouth. If you think you might be a candidate for dentures, it is important to get in touch with our knowledgeable team at Bravo Smile today and let us help you decide what will best fit your needs.

How Do I Know It Is Time To Get Dentures?

There are a variety of different signs that may help you know it is time to think about dentures. The biggest sign of needing dentures is if you are missing multiple teeth or need to have multiple teeth extracted. When that happens, it is certainly time to think about getting dentures for yourself. Dentures will not only help your appearance and self-confidence, but they will also make it easier to speak and eat normally if you are missing multiple teeth.

Another sign that it may be time to think about dentures is if you are having multiple issues with your oral health. Perhaps you have teeth that are regularly and severely painful, signifying a decay that has made it to the nerves of the teeth. Or you may have teeth that are loose or moving. You may also be having problems with your gums and keeping them healthy. All of these instances may indicate that it is time to think about extracting those teeth and having dentures created for you. You do not have to put up with the pain of multiple tooth problems just to be able to chew food and speak. A set of dentures will allow you to function as you would normally while solving the painful oral health issues you may be having.

What is the Difference Between Complete and Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are used when possible when you still have some of your natural teeth. Partial dentures are still removable but attach to the teeth you have to fill in the gaps where your missing teeth are and also keep your natural teeth from shifting in your mouth because the missing teeth are not there to hold them in place. Well-made partial dentures will blend in with your natural teeth and be unnoticeable, giving you a better mouth shape and more confidence when you smile.

Complete dentures are created when you are missing all of your teeth or all of your teeth need to be replaced. They will be made specifically for your mouth and gums, so they fit comfortably, do not move, and look and act as your natural teeth did. Well-made full dentures will not be noticeable or obvious.
