Narrator: When all of the teeth in an arch are missing we may recommend a full denture to replace them. By replacing missing teeth and providing support for the lips and cheeks full dentures can help solve a variety of problems caused by missing teeth, including a compromised appearance, and difficulty eating and talking.
To determine if dentures are right for you we’ll perform a thorough exams of your gums and any remaining teeth. The exam typically includes xrays to check the health of your jawbone. We’ll also take impressions to create an accurate model of your mouth. The best positions of the center line and lip line will be recorded, so the denture teeth can be placed attractively. And we’ll work with you to select the best color and shape for your new teeth. There are several types of full dentures, so we’ll talk with you about the best one for your situation. If you are missing all of the upper or lower teeth dentures can be a good way to help you eat more easily, speak clearly, and have a natural looking smile.
