One of the most popular options for replacing missing teeth, dentures fit over the remaining bone ridge that previously held teeth. These dentures are designed to both look and function like natural teeth. They are held in place securely from the suctioning effect of the close fit against their natural ridges. The upper dentures get some extra support from the surface area of the roof of the mouth known as the palate.
Wearing dentures will take some time for patients to get used too. However, over a period of time, the mouth will learn to work in different ways to allow the dentures to function like normal teeth. Dr. Kramer can help patients determine what type of denture will benefit their oral health situation the most successfully.
A mold is made of the patient’s ridges on the top and bottom of their mouth. This creates the base of the denture. The dentist will then try different shapes and sizes to re-create the natural smile for each patient. After the patient and the dentist are both satisfied, the permanent dentures are created. Adjustments will occur over time to balance the bite.
