Turn Back the Clock
Smiles are our most personal calling card. Radiant smiles lend a look of intelligence and ability. Conversely, missing or discolored teeth can make a person look unhealthy and unattractive. At Mai Dentistry, we are committed to helping patients with missing or damaged teeth achieve a whole and healthy looking smile. There are many ways to do this; dentures are one of the most popular options.
Dentures are removable sets of artificial teeth that allow patients to smile, speak, and eat like anyone else. While the prevailing image of dentures is a set of cartoonish, boxy teeth soaking in a glass on a night table, modern dentures are sleeker and simulate real teeth more than ever.
Dentures do more than an esthetic service. They reduce speech impediments that originate from missing teeth, and allow patients to enjoy a normal variety of food. With proper care and practice, denture wearers aren’t really limited in their lifestyle. Most wearers also report better emotional and social well-being!
Full and Partial Dentures
We fit patients with two types of dentures: full and partial dentures. When people lose most of their teeth, it’s just not practical to restore them with bridges or crowns. Full dentures are the best option. In some cases, dental implants can be used to secure dentures in place. Partial dentures are ideal for patients who still have a few teeth to anchor the dentures in place. This increases their strength and stability. Partial dentures replace missing teeth and let patients speak and chew in comfort and reduce chances of improper occlusion (bite alignment).
Modern denture bases are light-weight acrylic, tinted to blend well with your gums, and the teeth are generally made from attractive, naturally translucent porcelain. Besides their lifelike appearance, today’s dentures are durable and customized to your mouth for a smile that impresses and allows you to live carefree.
