Why would I get dentures?
Dentures are very different today than they were in the past. Most people imagine the clunky, ill-fitting dentures of their grandparents era. Today, dentures are a much different experience. A denture that is well done can change your daily life in many ways. Dentures or partials can take someone with little to no confidence, and transform them into someone who can’t stop smiling. Dentures by Dr. Grantham fit securely, and are created and placed with such attention to detail – things like slight variance in color; translucency, and shape of natural teeth are replicated in the prosthesis.
Dentures also help maintain bone structure. When teeth are lost, the bone beneath begins to atrophy. A denture or partial can help maintain the structure of the bone and prevent ‘sunken face’ and bone deterioration. Lost teeth can also change your speech. The muscles in your mouth may regain normal function when teeth are put back in place. Finally, we know how difficult it can be to give up some of your favorite foods because of lost or missing teeth. Dentures will give you back the ability to enjoy your favorite foods again!
If you are worried about dentures slipping or moving, rest assured that modern dentures are much more secure due to the precision Dr. Grantham can attain in fitting them. Additionally, if you would like a denture that is even more secure, Dr. Grantham can discuss placing implants that will help lock the denture in place. The denture will be made to connect to the implants for a stable and comfortable fit.
Dentures do wear and stain faster than natural teeth, so be prepared to be refitted every 5 years or so.
