Dentures are removable or fixed oral appliances that can be used to restore your smile by replacing missing teeth. If some or all your natural teeth are lost due to decay, injury, or gum disease, you can consider dentures as a tooth replacement option to benefit the aesthetics and health of your smile. Loss of teeth can cause the facial muscles to sag, making you look older. High-quality dentures from the office of Greenwich Smiles can fill out the space created by missing teeth in a natural-looking way.
Conventional complete dentures are made after all the teeth have been removed or are lost and the gum tissue has begun to heal. On the other hand, immediate complete dentures are made ahead of time, so they can be ready for installation as soon as the teeth have been removed. These serve as temporary replacements until your full dentures are made.
Partial dentures are recommended when you still have some natural teeth remaining in the upper or lower jaw. A partial denture fills in the spaces created by the missing teeth and also prevents the other teeth from shifting or moving from their positions.
Apart from conventional full and partial dentures, we also offer fixed dentures and denture stabilization to help your dentures stay in position as you speak, eat and smile in public. These are held steady through the use of surgically placed dental implants which act as permanent replacement roots. These solutions are particularly useful for those people who are worried about slipping and ill-fitting dentures. They provide tremendous fixation and support and keep your jawbone from receding.
