Dentures: Rediscovering Comfort and Confidence

Dentures are a time-tested solution for replacing missing teeth. They offer individuals the opportunity to regain the functionality and appearance of their natural smile.  Whether partial or complete, dentures are custom-designed to fit the patient’s mouth.  Likewise, they provide support for the cheeks and lips and restoring the ability to eat and speak with ease.

DenturesAdvancements in dental materials and technology have significantly improved the comfort, fit, and appearance of dentures.  These modern dental appliances can be made to look very natural.  Accordingly, they closely mimic the appearance of real teeth and gums.  For those seeking a more secure fit, implant-supported dentures provide an option that anchors them to the jawbone.  This reduces movement and increases comfort.

Oftentimes, you’ll hear dentures referred to as “false teeth”.  Though they may be thought of that way, such a description undermines the flexibility and functional benefits they offer.  For the purposes of eating, smiling, speaking, and other oral functions, they serve a very real and important role in daily living, quality of life, and self-confidence.

Transitioning to dentures can take some time. It’s normal to experience an adjustment period.  However, with patience and practice, most people find that they can eat, speak, and smile confidently with their new mouthful of teeth.  Regular check-ups with the dentist are important to ensure they continue to fit well and remain comfortable over time.

Dentures not only improve the aesthetics of one’s smile but also have a positive impact on overall oral health.  By supporting the facial structure and reducing the risk of further oral health issues, they play a crucial role in maintaining the well-being of individuals with missing teeth.  At Myshin, Kravitz & Miller, we provide full- or partial dentures for patients who find them to be an appealing option for a healthy, restored smile.
