Damaged or missing teeth can lead to dental problems like difficulty in chewing and speaking, compromised aesthetics, and a decrease in self-confidence. At Southcoast Dental, we understand the challenges that these dental problems can cause. Our full and partial dentures provide an effective solution to restore oral function, enhance the appearance of your smile, and ultimately improve your quality of life.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and restore oral function and aesthetics. They are custom-made to fit comfortably within your mouth and can be easily removed and cleaned. Dentures can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, depending on your specific dental needs.

Types of Dentures

  • Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are recommended when you have some natural teeth remaining in your mouth. These dentures consist of artificial teeth that are carefully crafted to match the shape and color of your natural teeth and a metal or acrylic framework that attaches to your existing teeth, providing a stable and secure fit. Partial dentures not only restore your smile but also help maintain the alignment of your remaining teeth and improve your ability to chew and speak.
  • Full Dentures: Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are used when all natural teeth in an arch (upper or lower) are missing or need to be replaced. These dentures consist of a full set of artificial teeth mounted on an acrylic base designed to match the contours of your gums. They are a comprehensive solution for restoring both the function and aesthetics of your smile.

Who is a Candidate for Dentures?

If you have missing teeth, whether due to decay, injury, or other factors, dentures can replace those lost teeth and restore your smile’s completeness. People with difficulty chewing or speaking due to tooth loss can significantly enhance their oral function with dentures, allowing them to enjoy their favorite foods and communicate easily. And for those looking to boost their self-confidence and regain a natural and appealing smile.

Benefits of Dentures

  • Restoring Oral Function: Dentures are designed to mimic the function of natural teeth, enabling you to chew your favorite foods with ease and efficiency. They help maintain proper alignment of your jaw and prevent shifting of remaining teeth, ensuring the longevity of your oral health.
  • Enhancing Aesthetics and Self-Esteem: Dentures provide a natural and lifelike appearance, helping you regain your confidence and self-esteem by restoring the beauty of your smile. The customized artificial teeth blend seamlessly with your facial features, ensuring a natural and radiant smile.
  • Improving Speech: Missing teeth can often lead to difficulty pronouncing words correctly—dentures aid in improving speech clarity and enhancing articulation. You can communicate with confidence, both in personal and professional settings.
  • Facilitating Proper Nutrition: A well-balanced diet is important for overall health, and dentures can help you enjoy a wide variety of foods. With the ability to chew and digest food effectively, you can maintain better nutrition and overall well-being.
