About 23 million people in the United States are completely edentulous (have no teeth), and 90 percent of those people opt for dentures. If you have lost all of your teeth, it can feel like you have lost your confidence to smile. At Breese Dental Group, we offer removable dentures to help patients regain their smiles and their confidence.
Removable Dentures: More Than Just a New Smile
Even though living without any or all of your teeth can affect your self-confidence, not having teeth can also affect your ability to eat properly and it can change the shape of your face. Removable dentures are a prosthetic device that is custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth. These dentures can be removed or installed as needed, and when they are well-made, they offer a positive change for the individual.
Obtaining Removable Dentures
When you decide you want removable dentures, you will undergo several steps to obtain the dentures with the help of your dentist. You will:
- Have measurements taken of your mouth
- Get x-rays to see the shape of your jawline and look for tooth fragments that could cause issues
- Have a cast made of your mouth
Once the dentist has taken all the necessary measurements, your dentures will be made by a professional. Every effort will be made to make sure the dentures look good and fit you comfortably. Patients also have the option of getting partial dentures if they still have some of their natural teeth.
