Smile Again with Removable Dentures from Our Clinic in South Durham
Whether due to tooth decay, gum disease, or life circumstances, many people lose teeth as they age (and sometimes prematurely). Complete or partial tooth loss can adversely impact not only your confidence and self esteem but also your overall good health. Removable dentures can restore your smile and, in many cases, a return to normal or almost normal function.
How do dentures work?
Dentures are made from acrylic resin which can be thought of as natural colored plastic of sorts. Following an initial impression of your mouth, a professional lab makes a complete or partial denture which fits over the alveolar (bone) ridge that holds the teeth. In the case of partial dentures, there may be clasps involved which rest on remaining teeth which aid in retention. Dentures use quality prosthetic teeth that look, function, and feel almost like the real thing. In some cases, dentures can attach to dental implants for a really solid retention and aesthetics. We work with well-regarded labs and specialists to reach as optimal fit and function as possible.
