Dentures Aren’t What They Used To Be (They’re Much Better!)
- July 28, 2017
Hello and welcome to our oral health blog. There is something that has been bothering us recently. Like us, you may have noticed that there is no shortage of “denture mills” in the Central Connecticut region that take advantage of unsuspecting individuals who are desperate to reclaim their quality of life following tooth loss as an adult. Unfortunately, the poorly-fitting, poor-excuses-for-dentures that these places produce don’t help anything or anyone except their own profit margin and CEOs. But don’t worry, we can do better than that for you here at our Plainville, CT dentist’s office. We have all the tools, training, and technology to turn your life around. Keep reading to hear all about our modern dentures options (that actually work), and then be sure to follow up to schedule your consultation with Dr. Peltzer!
Our Dentures Save Smiles
Simply put, a denture is a prosthetic dental appliance used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. 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 following tooth loss.
Eat The Foods You Love With Dentures
Our dentures provide a valuable restorative dentistry solution when it comes to helping you chew all the harder to consume fiber-rich foods. As such, our dentures will help you improve not only your menu options but also your general wellness, overall appearance, and self-confidence, too!
Full dentures involve 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.
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 in action. 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.
Implants Can Hold Dentures Down
We love using implants this way. In fact, 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.
Dentures Are Affordable
Tooth loss will be a life-altering experience until you are ready to do something about it. We think that dentures provide a practical and cost-effective solution for restoring your smile, and we’d love to walk you through the process in person.
