If you currently wear dentures, or you’re thinking about getting some, you’re certainly not alone. About 32 million Americans wear dentures. Some people love them; others don’t. The trick to having great-fitting, long lasting dentures is to work with a cosmetically trained dentist who knows how to design your dentures to fit the contours of your mouth.
The latest development in technology is implant-supported dentures. Gone are the loose fitting, poor quality dentures and new, implant-supported dentures allow people to eat more of what they are missing. Including corn on the cob, apples and even steak. That’s hard to do with a regular denture. To learn more, please visit our implant overdentures page.
At Flax Dental, many of our denture wearing patients have partial dentures, or bridges. These are essentially placeholders so that your remaining teeth will not shift and cause other dental problems. Quite a few patients are now choosing to replace their partials with dental implants. It eliminates the need to replace the bridge every few years. Talk to Dr. Flax about all your options for tooth replacement, and visit our dental implants page to learn more about this treatment option.
