Dentures are custom-made prosthetics that restore your oral function and replace missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues, creating a natural-looking and functional dental restoration.
Dentures are designed to fit your mouth comfortably, allowing you to chew, speak, and smile confidently. They’re a reliable and affordable solution for restoring your smile.
Dr. Pinkhasov offers multiple types of dentures at Naples Dental and Wellness Center, including:
Complete dentures are custom-made prosthetics that can replace full arches of teeth. With artificial teeth, gums, and tissues that cover the roof of your mouth, they can replace all the teeth in your upper or lower jaw.
Partial dentures replace select teeth. While they contain artificial teeth and gums, they don’t cover the roof of your mouth. Instead, partial dentures connect to metal or ceramic framework that attaches to your healthy teeth.
Implant-support dentures provide unmatched support and stability for your replacement teeth. They attach to titanium replacement tooth roots called dental implants.
Dr. Pinkhasov can recommend the appropriate type of dentures for you based on your oral health, goals, and level of tooth loss.
Creating dentures is a multistep process that includes the following:
If you have missing teeth, Dr. Pinkhasov discusses your needs and expectations, performs a comprehensive dental evaluation, and takes X-rays to determine if dentures are the right option for you.
Taking highly accurate impressions of your teeth and measuring your mouth are essential to creating dentures that feel comfortable and look natural.
After removing any decayed or badly damaged teeth, Dr. Pinkhasov gives you temporary dentures while you wait for your permanent restorations.
Dr. Pinkhasov sends your impressions and measurements to a dental lab to fabricate your permanent dentures.
Once your dentures are ready, you return to Dr. Pinkhasov’s office for a fitting to ensure the proper alignment.
Dentures can last for more than a decade with proper care and regular relining visits to Dr. Pinkhasov’s office. Call Naples Dental and Wellness Center today or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
