Dentures can quickly and easily give you back your full smile.
If you are someone dealing with significant tooth loss you may feel like hope is lost, but we are here to tell you that it most certainly isn’t. Even if you have lost all of your permanent teeth, our Waunakee, WI general dentists, Dr. Mathew Karis and Dr. Stanley Karls, can easily replace those teeth and give you back a complete smile with dentures.
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable oral appliances that are designed to replace all or some of your missing teeth. Dentures that are designed to replace all of your teeth are known as complete dentures and are made to sit on top of the gums. Dentures that only replace some teeth are known as partial dentures and often attach to other teeth using metal clasps or attachments to help keep them in place.
What is the process of getting dentures?
If you need to have teeth extracted this is the first step that will need to happen before you get dentures. Once teeth are extracted our Waunakee dentists will place immediate dentures over your mouth so that you still have teeth while your gums heal.
Impressions will be taken of your mouth so that you get dentures that properly fit onto your gums and jawbone. While your mouth heals a dental lab will start to fabricate your dentures. Once they are complete you will come back in so that we can fit you with your new restoration. Dentures may require some adjustments before they fit properly.
What are the benefits of choosing dentures in Waunakee?
Dentures are one of the easiest and fastest ways to replace your teeth after dealing with significant tooth loss. While dental implants certainly offer a long-term solution some patients aren’t healthy enough to undergo surgeries, and there are some people who don’t want to go through invasive procedures. In this case, dentures are the best option since you won’t have to endure any surgeries.
We also know that patients are often looking to stay within a reasonable budget and dental implants can be rather expensive. This is where dentures often become an attractive option. After all, dentures are one of the least expensive options for replacing missing teeth.
