At Ridge Family Dental, we want to help give you your smile back. As a result, we can walk you through your journey to a better, more functional smile.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth. A dental professional can design dentures to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissues. They come in various forms, each catering to your specific needs and preferences. Dentures offer a non-invasive and versatile solution for patients. Unlike dental implants, which need surgical implantation into the jawbone, dentures are a comfortable and affordable option to restore your smile.
There are a lot of different options for patients with missing teeth. So, why choose dentures over other replacement options?
Versatility: Dentures are a versatile option for those missing several or all of their teeth. Whether you need a partial denture to replace a few missing teeth or a full denture to restore an entire arch, there is a solution for your situation.
Non-Invasive: Unlike dental implants that involve surgery, dentures offer a non-invasive option. This process typically involves impressions of your mouth to ensure a custom fit. Additionally, your dentist can easily make adjustments as needed.
Restored Function: Dentures not only enhance the look of your smile, but they also improve its function. You can comfortably chew a variety of foods and speak with confidence. As a result, it can allow you to enjoy a more unrestricted lifestyle.
