Dentures, to replace missing teeth are an efficient and effective way for patients to enhance their smile. There are various types of dentures available to patients at Lancaster Smiles. Knowing the type that will best suit your specific situation is simple when you visit Lancaster Smiles. A dental assessment will allow our doctors to recommend the best course of action.
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth. When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile.
For some patients in Lancaster and the Greater Buffalo area, removable partial dentures may be the best option. These dentures are commonly used to replace a single tooth or a small group of teeth, and can be removed when necessary. Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases. A partial denture may have a metal framework and clasps that connect to your teeth, or they can have other connectors that are more natural looking. In some cases, a removable partial denture is made to attach to your natural teeth with devices called precision attachments. Precision attachments are generally more esthetic than clasps. Depending on your needs, Drs. Martin, Martin & Hauer will design a partial denture for you.
