As tooth loss occurs over time, you slowly lose your ability to easily chew, speak clearly, and give a big smile. While serving as your dentist in Fort Collins, Colorado, we can fix all that by replacing your missing teeth with a partial to a full set of dentures. Then, you can quickly move forward with your daily activities without interruption and smile confidently once again.
What are Dentures?
Dentures replace missing teeth with prosthetics that look and feel like the real thing. The prosthetic teeth attach to realistic gums that affix to the surface of your gum tissues. You can then take them out as needed to rest your natural gums at night and clean up the dentures for the next day.
With partial dentures, the removable dental device only fills in the gaps left behind by the missing teeth. For a more permanent option, you can have the teeth replaced with a dental bridge instead.
If you’re missing most of your teeth across the entire arch or both arches, then you might prefer a complete set of dentures instead. Your dentist can remove the remaining teeth to prepare the gums for the dentures, so you can enjoy a comfortable fit.
Then, while your gums heal, we’ll have your dentures made and schedule a test fitting as soon as they arrive. During that visit, you’ll learn how to use and care for your dentures, allowing you to enjoy them to the fullest.
When to Get Dentures
When tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health conditions start to result in tooth loss, it’s time to talk about getting dentures. If you’ve lost just one tooth, it’s best replaced with a dental bridge. But as time goes on and tooth loss continues, dentures may turn out to be a more viable option. You can also consider dental implants for the replacement of one or more teeth – even up to a full set.
Our dental care team can help you weigh all the options and find the right tooth-replacement method for you. Your lifestyle, preferences, and overall oral health will help us pinpoint the ideal methods for your needs. You can then use the info we provide to decide if you’d like to move forward with getting dentures. If so, we can handle every aspect of the care process, including having your custom set of dentures made just for you.
