What are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial teeth that are custom made to replace missing teeth. Depending on the needs of the patient, dentures can be complete or partial. Complete dentures replace all of the upper and lower teeth. Partial dentures are metal appliances that attach in place to the gum line around existing teeth. Dr. Shukovsky uses dental materials of only the highest quality to craft the most comfortable and natural-looking dentures possible.
The procedure can vary according to how extensive the necessary work is. An examination is scheduled to determine exactly what will be needed to meet each patient’s unique needs. For complete dentures, any remaining teeth are gently removed to make room for the new prosthetic teeth. A mold is first taken of the gums so that perfectly fitting dentures can be custom made. Temporary dentures will be provided during the healing and fabrication process. When the final dentures are prepared and the gums are healthy, an appointment will be made for denture placement. Complete dentures and partial dentures are fit securely to the gums. Both kinds are removable to maintain gum health. We even offer dental implant supported dentures, which provide unparalleled stability and the most natural-looking, functional results.
Benefits of Dentures
Once the entire procedure is complete, people who once were missing most or all of their teeth have a full set of functional dentures that are custom designed to look natural, fit snugly but comfortably, and perhaps most importantly of all, restore function to the mouth. You will once again be able to bite, chew, and speak with ease with your new dentures. The sunken cheek look that accompanies extensive tooth loss will be remedied as well, giving your whole face a renewed and healthy look. Dr. Shukovsky uses only the most advanced dental technology to help ensure strong and beautiful results.
