When you have missing teeth, it can cause you to feel self-conscious about showing your smile or even speaking. Your other teeth on that jaw can shift, leading to discomfort. And if you have lost, or are about to lose, all of the teeth on one jaw, you will find your ability to eat compromised, in addition to the obvious cosmetic drawbacks. Fortunately, here at Lake Street Dental our dentist in Roselle, we are pleased to provide dentures that look like real teeth; done with outstanding attention to detail, customized for you as an individual, and even made with hand sculpted teeth at no additional charge. These are today’s dentures.
Dentures have stood the test of time, as a way to replace several or even all of your natural teeth. Our dentist in Roselle will take impressions of your mouth, which will then be used to make your dentures. If you are getting partials, they will have clasps on either side to attach to the teeth on both sides. This makes them more stable and secure. You will also use adhesive at the gum line to hold them in. If, on the other hand, you need a full set of dentures for one jaw, there are no clasps since there is nothing to attach them to. They will simply be kept in place with adhesive. Both are made the same way, otherwise, except that partials can be put in immediately, while it is typically advised that full dentures be delayed for a few weeks while your gum and bone tissue go through a natural process of shrinking. By waiting, you will be able to avoid needing one or more adjustments later on to ensure a more ideal fit. However, if you require immediate full dentures, our dentist in Roselle can do that, too.
The bottom line is that you don’t need to go without a full set of teeth. You can regain your complete smile and be able to chew and speak and laugh with confidence. Just call us to schedule an appointment with our dentist in Roselle so you can get started.
