What are Dentures?
When you lose your teeth, you might become less confident about your smile, and eating and speaking may become difficult. Dentures are custom-made moldings for a person to wear to restore their appearance and any functions that were impaired with a lack of teeth. There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are made for people with all their teeth missing and partials are used when only some teeth are missing.
There are several reasons one might choose to get complete dentures including that all teeth are missing, they improve speech function, they support the facial structure, they help prevent problems related to TMJ, and more. They are removable and are created to be the perfect fit with your gums and mouth. Dousman creates full dentures that are made of plastic and colored to replicate gum tissue. You can choose between a set of plastic or porcelain teeth to go with them.
When several of your natural teeth are still in your upper or lower jaw, partial removable dentures might be the way to go. They're the best option for when you need to replace missing teeth, improve the ability to chew, improve speech, or need a confidence boost. More teeth can be added to the partial denture if loss of a natural tooth occurs. These types of dentures can be easier to repair than a full set.
