A Better Dentures Experience Awaits!

A Better Dentures Experience Awaits!

  • October 2, 2016

Are you tired of wearing slippery (and unreliable) dentures that were supposed to restore your life after the indignity of tooth loss as an adult?

Then you have landed in just the right place for restorative dentistry that you can depend on in the Central Connecticut area! When you visit our Plainville office, you will see that, for us, denture-crafting is an individualized process of very meticulous impression making and molding. And it is all overseen by one of the best prepared dentists for the task at hand, Dr. Peltzer!

To be sure, we aren’t one of those places where you put a coin into a slot, twist the lever and hope for the best when your false teeth come out the other end. OK, maybe we are exaggerating a little bit, but the reality is that there are plenty of “denture mills” in the region that prey on unsuspecting individuals who are desperate to make things better. Unfortunately, bad-fitting dentures only make things worse.

So, be sure to trust your dentures to a team that really cares about YOU!

Keep reading to learn more about modern dentures, and then make sure you follow up with our team to arrange for your consultation with Dr. Peltzer. We’ll quickly deliver that confident smile you’ve been missing.

Can Dentures Fix My Smile?

Yes! A denture is simply a prosthetic dental appliance used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. It is designed to make life better.

How does it work? This appliance is supported by the nearby soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. A dental denture is engineered to look like your original teeth and gums, boosting your looks and helping you chew and speak normally once again.

Can Dentures Help Me Eat The Foods I Like?

Definitely! In the hands of Dr. Peltzer, dentures are a top-notch restorative dentistry solution when it comes to helping you chew all the harder to consume fiber-rich foods. Accordingly, dentures will help you improve not only your menu options but also your general wellness, overall appearance, and self-assurance!

What Are Full Dentures?

The are several kinds of dentures available to us now at Gentle Dental Care of Plainville, CT. Full dentures, as the name implies, are simply a full set of replacement teeth connected to a thin plastic base colored to look like your natural gums. This base is custom-fitted to grip snugly and sit comfortably over your gums, allowing you to converse, dine, and laugh normally again.

What Are Partial Dentures?

This one should be obvious after the last explanation. If you are not missing an entire arch of teeth, a partial denture designed by Dr. Peltzer could be just what you need to get back on track. These operate pretty much the same way as full dentures and they too are artificial teeth set in a natural-looking base that fits over your gums. And to allow for additional strength, they use clasps to hold onto the teeth near the gap.

Are Implants Ever Used To Stabilize Dentures?

Indeed! Dr. Peltzer can set you up with one of two great options for this kind of added-stabilization: implant-supported dentures and implant-retained dentures.

Implant-Supported Dentures

In this day and age dentures are far better than they used to be. And the most secure and permanent teeth replacement option is a denture attached permanently to dental implants.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Using your existing dentures, we can modify them with one of two systems, either bar-retained or ball-retained, which will allow your denture implants to securely snap into place on implants that are placed in your jaw. It’s a great solution that will still allow you to take your dentures out in the evening. You’ll just put your dentures in place each day and experience amazing stability in your smile!

Are Dentures An Affordable Solution?

For sure! Tooth loss will be life-changing (and not in a good way) until you do something about it. The good news is that dentures provide a practical and cost-effective solution for restoring your smile following tooth loss as an adult. We can go over all that when you are here for your consultation with Dr. Peltzer!
