Losing teeth due to cavities or severe periodontal disease can significantly impair your oral function and impact your self-esteem. If you have lost more than half of your teeth, or your existing teeth are significantly compromised, Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt might recommend fitting you for a complete denture.
This is a removable dental appliance that will replace the presence and appearance of your original teeth. The process of fitting you for denture might require extracting any remaining compromised teeth. Once this is done, Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt will suture you gums make an impression of your underlying oral structure.
This information will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide for the dental technicians that will create your set of dentures.
The dentures will be custom fit to the unique shape of your mouth. However, you might still use a denture adhesive for a little extra hold. Adhesive can also help to block out stray food particles from getting between the base of the dentures and your gums.
If you live in the Logan, Utah, area and you have multiple missing or compromised teeth, you should call 435-752-1434 to set up a dentures consultation at Ridge View Smile Care.
