Edentulism (toothlessness) is not a condition relegated only to the elderly. Tooth loss can affect anyone regardless of age due to disease or accident. If you have experienced any form of edentulism, Humphries Dental can treat you with custom-made dentures to restore the function and look of your teeth.
Dentures are oral appliances made from synthetic materials that can be shaped and color to match the aesthetic of your natural teeth. These devices tend to be removable, although there are permanent variations. Removable dentures are supported by the hard and soft tissue of the mouth.
The three most common types of dentures are full, partial, and temporary.
Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are made up of two sets of removable devices that resemble your upper and lower set of teeth. These devices are removable and are made of either porcelain or acrylic.
Partial dentures are used when some or most of your natural teeth are still present and in good condition. These devices are used to fill a gap created by missing teeth and can be removed when needed.
Temporary dentures (or immediate dentures) are used right after your teeth have been removed. The reason these dentures are temporary is because they are often a placeholder until you receive more permanent dentures.
Your struggles with tooth loss can be a thing of the past after visiting Humphries Dental. Schedule an appointment today to receive expertly designed dentures!
