Dentures - No More Discomfort from Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can affect anyone, regardless of age. If you have missing teeth, you may feel embarrassed when eating or smiling. Essex Smiles offers a variety of denture options as a replacement for missing teeth, which can help you feel comfortable and confident again. 

Dentures are a set of custom-made, prosthetic teeth that restores the smile of people with missing teeth. Due to the use of synthetic materials in its construction, a denture may feel a bit different from your natural teeth. However, they are a great solution for supporting your facial structures and improving your ability to eat and speak.

Different Types of Dentures

There are both complete and partial dentures available, each differing in comfort and cleaning routine. Essex Smiles can help choose the right kind of denture for you. 

Complete dentures, or full dentures, can include a set of both upper and lower teeth designed for patients who are missing all of their teeth. 

On the other hand, partial dentures are geared toward patients who are only missing some teeth, whether singly or in segments. Partial dentures are usually held in place by clips or brackets. They help keep your remaining teeth from shifting. 

If you are looking for a quick fix following a tooth extraction, a temporary denture is the best option for you. They are great for giving patients the feel of wearing dentures while waiting for their long-term dentures to be ready. 

All dentures are adjusted to give you the most natural fit possible. To help keep your dentures in place, you can use denture adhesives. 

The Benefits of Getting Dentures

Dentures are great options for replacing teeth to improve your oral health. They can be easily taken out for cleaning and removing plaque. Their lightweight material helps give a natural look to your smile. You will also see a difference in your cheeks and facial muscles as dentures give exceptional support. 

Depending on your oral health and gum tissues, you may be a good candidate for dental implants, also known as implant-retained dentures. This is a more permanent alternative to complete or partial dentures.
