If you are missing teeth, dentures could be a new beginning. Dr. Van Horn enjoys creating natural dentures that are uniquely crafted to restore each patient’s smile. She will work with you to select a color and fit that will produce a successful denture outcome and a gorgeous new set of teeth.
Whether you’re hoping to replace old and worn out dentures, or you are considering a first-time denture, Dr. Van Horn will help you review your options and decide which replacement method is right for you.
Types of Dentures
First-time, or immediate dentures are designed prior to tooth extraction so that you can have them placed immediately after your teeth are removed. You won’t have to go without teeth for any time at all when you use immediate dentures, although a few adjustments may be necessary.
Replacement dentures have the same look of your previous dentures, but they will have better shape and improved fit.
Traditional dentures form a seal with your gums. The pink plastic base matches your tissue, and your teeth are designed to blend in with your natural smile.
Implant dentures can provide a dramatic improvement in your abilities to chew, smile, and speak. Dentures are held in place by secure dental implants and will give you a stable tooth replacement option.
Benefits of Dentures
- No one has to know you’re wearing dentures when they are designed by denture experts
- Denture wearers can speak more clearly
- Dentures can give you confidence in your full and complete smile
- Well-made dentures won’t hurt, slip, or click
You should expect some adjustments when you get dentures for the first time, but Dr. Van Horn will work with you until you are pleased with your new smile.
