Are you in search of a time-tested, reliable tooth-replacement option? Perhaps you’ve got several missing teeth and feel unsure about the best way to restore your smile’s cosmetic appearance and overall functionality. You’ve most likely heard of dentures or even known someone who uses them, but how do they work exactly?

What Are Dentures?

People worldwide have relied on dentures for years to smile, chew, speak properly, and replace some or all of their teeth. Modern dentistry provides several tooth-replacement options, but dentures still offer great benefits for many needing to replace entire sets of teeth. Imagine a set of “replacement teeth” made of acrylic that look and function like natural teeth when you think about dentures. Our dentists create custom dentures from the impressions and measurements of a patient’s mouth. Properly fitting dentures suit a patient’s mouth, jaw, bite and stay in the mouth through suction (thanks to the custom design).

When Should I Consider Dentures?

Generally, patients missing entire arcs of teeth or several teeth may benefit from full or partial dentures. At Hagan Dentistry, we encourage patients to schedule initial consultations to assess which tooth-replacement option can best serve their needs. We take pride in restoring patients’ ability to get the most out of their bite and smile after previous tooth loss. If you think you could benefit from dentures or another tooth-replacement option, don’t hesitate to call our dental office at (423) 239-8021.

Benefits of Dentures

Patients can expect several benefits to their overall lifestyle from dentures, some of which include:

  • Support for the cheeks and other facial structures
  • Restored chewing and digestion ability
  • Restoration of a patient’s oral health
  • Cleaning and upkeep are simple
  • Dentures can last for years if taken care of properly
