Dr. Mark Richardson in Kalamazoo, Michigan offers a wide range of dental services, including dentures, to give you back your smile.
Your teeth are important
You need your teeth, without them, it’s not easy to chew your food completely. Inadequate chewing impacts your digestion, and your overall health will suffer. You also need your teeth, because you need to smile. Smiling makes you look great, and feel fantastic about yourself. When you smile, others naturally gravitate toward you, making you a more social person.
Replace your missing teeth with dentures
If you are missing just a few teeth, but not an entire arch, you need a partial denture. A conventional removable partial denture is sturdy and built to give you years of reliable smiles. If you are considering dental implants in the near future, ask about A transitional partial denture.
If you need to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, either upper, lower, or both, you need a full denture.
The first type of full denture is an immediate denture that is delivered right after you have your teeth removed. With an immediate denture, you never have to live without your smile.
The second is a conventional denture, which is sturdy and built to provide years of dependable service and smiles. With a conventional denture, you only have to get used to the fit and comfort of one denture. The conventional denture will be made for you after your tissue is fully healed, which usually takes 6 to 8 weeks.
The third is an implant-supported denture, which provides all of the benefits and stability of dental implants, plus the ease of a denture. Implant-supported dentures provide the best of both worlds, helping you retain bone. More bone means a firmer jawline and more youthful facial contours.
Replacing your missing teeth with dentures is a big decision that you shouldn’t make alone. To find out more about tooth replacement options, call Dr. Mark Richardson at Let the Smiles Begin Family Dentistry in Kalamazoo, Michigan, at (269) 343-6907. Call now!
