Custom dentures are a popular option for patients who have lost some or all of their natural teeth. We make custom dentures that precisely fit a patient’s mouth and provide excellent comfort and functionality. The doctors at our Altamonte Springs area practice offer both partial and full custom dentures and can combine advanced dental implant technology with custom prosthetics to provide the best possible fit, stability, and lifelike appearance.
Our dentists are eminently qualified to provide Altamonte Springs and nearby cities with a number of options for dentures and additional tooth replacement treatments.
There are numerous reasons missing teeth should always be replaced, and they can include both functional and aesthetic purposes. When one or more teeth are missing, the nearby teeth may also shift, causing the entire bite to become misaligned. If no action is taken, it can be quite expensive and challenging to fix.
Dentures have a number of benefits for people with missing teeth. Dentures improve the appearance of the entire face by eliminating a sunken appearance. Many of our patients have reported a greatly improved quality of life as the result of getting dentures.
Dentures also have many practical benefits for those with missing teeth. Missing teeth can have a harmful effect on a person’s ability to speak. Dentures help restore the natural contours of the mouth so that proper speech patterns are achieved. Chewing will also be improved with a full complement of teeth, and the need to only eat soft foods can be done away with. Dentures will stop the remaining teeth from shifting, and the force of chewing will be spread over a greater area, which protects the remaining natural teeth.
Complete dentures replace an entire row of teeth and are removable. They have either porcelain or resin teeth, and they’re made of a specially formulated denture resin. The anatomical structure of the mouth, saliva, and opposing teeth are used to help the denture stay in place within the mouth. The outcome can be both visually appealing and dramatically improve functionality.
Partial dentures are intended to replace multiple missing teeth while fitting in comfortably among a patient’s remaining teeth. They normally are comprised of artificial teeth that are attached to a plastic base that is gum colored. The teeth are connected to a metal frame that keeps the dentures properly oriented within the mouth. They are held in place by the contours of the bone and gums with metal connectors attached to healthy teeth as a support.
