A denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces your missing teeth. They’re also a vastly misunderstood piece of equipment that gets a bad rap … for no good reason! New teeth can help you become more confident in your smile again!
They can be worn on the upper portion of your mouth, or the lower section, or even both! Patients wear dentures for various reasons, however, they are similar in fit and feel, no matter the cause of your missing teeth. Updated technology has also allowed for dentures that look incredibly real, fit true to your gums (which allows for an incredible amount of comfort), and function just as well as your actual teeth. With our dental expertise and your custom dentures, you won’t even know the difference!
Custom made partial denture or complete, there are different types! At Family Dentistry of Columbus, we will help you find the best denture fit for you! Whether you’re in need of your very first set of false teeth, a replacement pair from your favorites that have worn out, or a regular dental consultation to see what your options are, we can help with your denture needs.
Even if you wear full dentures, you still have to practice good dental hygiene. Brush your gums, tongue and roof of your mouth every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque. If you have any questions about your teeth, or if they stop fitting well or become damaged, contact us. Be sure to schedule regular dental checkups, too. Our dentist will examine your mouth to see if your teeth continue to fit properly.
