Complications resulting from a history of tooth decay or advanced gum disease can cause many complications with your oral health and dental function. If you have missing or damaged teeth, you may suffer dental problems such as difficulty chewing, impaired speech, and a decreased quality of life. To correct issues caused by compromised teeth, you may need to receive custom-made dentures.

Also called false teeth, dentures can restore the full function and appearance of your teeth for years to come. Depending on the condition of your smile, you can receive dentures only for the upper or lower arches or a full set of dentures to replace all of the teeth.

Any remaining teeth in your smile may be removed in order to improve the fit of the dentures and help them stay firmly in your smile. Once these teeth are removed, a detailed impression of your mouth can be created and submitted to a dental lab, which will ensure that your new permanent dentures are custom crafted to fit your unique smile shape.

You can further improve the fit of your dentures by using denture adhesive to create a tight seal and prevent any gaps between the dentures and gums where food particles can build up.
