Dentures at Linglesdown Family Dental, Harrisburg, PA

Dentures are removable oral prosthetic devices to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues.  They are custom-made to fit the unique shape and structure of a patient’s mouth, providing a functional and aesthetic solution for those who have lost multiple or all of their natural teeth.

There are two main types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.  Complete dentures are used when all natural teeth are missing, while partial dentures are employed when some natural teeth remain.  Complete dentures consist of a full set of artificial teeth mounted on a gum-colored acrylic base that rests directly on the gums.  Partial dentures, on the other hand, use a combination of artificial teeth and a metal or acrylic framework that attaches to the remaining natural teeth.

The process of getting dentures typically involves multiple dental appointments. The dentist takes impressions of the patient’s mouth and creates a model to ensure an accurate fit. The dentures are then fabricated in a dental laboratory. Once the dentures are ready, they are adjusted and fitted to the patient’s mouth to ensure comfort, functionality, and proper alignment.

While dentures may take some time to adjust to, they provide significant benefits. Dentures restore the ability to chew and speak properly, improve facial appearance by supporting the lips and cheeks, and help maintain proper alignment of the remaining natural teeth.

Proper denture care is essential for maintaining their longevity and functionality. Dentures should be cleaned regularly, removed at night to allow the gums to rest, and stored properly in a denture solution to keep them moist.

Dentures are a popular and effective solution for individuals with missing teeth. They offer a customizable and removable option that restores oral function and enhances facial aesthetics.  If you are considering dentures, consult with us at Linglestown Family Dental in Harrisburg, PA.  We can assess your specific needs and guide you through the process of obtaining and caring for your dentures.
