Benefits of Dentures
Dentures don’t just fill the gap in your smile left by missing teeth. They also restore health and function to your whole mouth, with specific benefits including:
- Clearer speech
- Improved chewing ability
- Better support for facial features and remaining natural teeth
- Renewed confidence and self-assurance
Make no mistake, these are not your grandparents’ dentures. Our doctors use advanced techniques that allow a better fit and function and reverse the sunken-in appearance that is so often seen following tooth loss. Not only can this take years off of your appearance, it can restore poise, improve self-esteem, and allow you to feel comfortable no matter what your day brings.
During your free denture consultation at our Georgetown office, we will happily discuss these benefits in greater detail to help you understand just how impactful a restored smile can be.
Our Denture Options
Whether you need a complete denture to replace an arch of teeth or a partial denture to replace just a few missing teeth, Dr. Holley and Dr. Duncan use the most progressive labs and materials to provide you a customized prosthesis designed to look just like natural teeth.
Our dentists offer three different types of dentures:
- Conventional: These rest on the gum tissue and are usually supported by adhesives.
- Snap-on: These are supported by dental implants and are removable by the patient.
- Screw-retained: These are also implant supported, but they can only be removed by the dentist.
By anchoring the denture with dental implants, it will also feel like natural teeth and stay put inside of the mouth, allowing you to eat, talk, and laugh without worry. A key advantage of implant-supported dentures is stimulation of your jaw bone. By preventing the bone loss that occurs after losing a tooth, dental implants keep the other teeth from shifting in your mouth, further preserving the look and function of your teeth and entire face.
Personalized Denture Treatment Planning
No two mouths are the same, so our dentists create dentures that are custom designed for each individual’s unique needs. Combining advanced experience with the latest techniques and technology, Dr. Holley and Dr. Duncan also personalize treatment through:
- Sessions with a TENS (transcutaneous electrical neural stimulation) unit to relax muscles and help you maintain optimal physiological position and fit
- Golden proportion calipers to ensure a more aesthetic, natural-looking smile that eliminates the sunken-in look – some patients even experience a “facelift” effect
- Careful evaluation and patient communication before dentures are fabricated to keep post-delivery adjustments to a minimum
