What Are Dentures?

Dentures are prosthetic appliances that replace multiple missing teeth, including entire upper and lower arches. Whether you've lost teeth because of gum disease or severe decay, dentures can be an ideal solution. Our Form Myers Dentures consist of artificial teeth that rest on a pink acrylic base and are designed for functionality and comfort.

3 Benefits of Dentures

There are numerous benefits to dentures. When you visit our office for the first time, we'll sit down with you and outline some of the positive aspects of dentures. Additionally, we're more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Some of the benefits of dentures include:

  1. Improving Your Confidence: Missing teeth can make you hesitate to flash your smile. Dentures are known for their natural-looking appearance, which can invigorate your smile and allow it to match the brilliance of your personality.
  2. Restoring Your Bite's Functionality: Even a single missing tooth can make it challenging to bite and chew properly. Dentures can restore the functionality of your bite and make it easy to chew.
  3. Reducing the Chance of Oral Health Issues: Dentures stimulate your facial muscles to help prevent facial sagging. Additionally, the artificial nature of dentures means they can't develop infection or decay.

Our Extensive Denture Services

During your initial visit, we'll determine which of our services is right for you. Whether you need complete denture or extractions before you can receive your dentures, our team is here for you. We're happy to answer any questions you have about our services, which include:

Full Dentures: Full or complete dentures are designed to replace all your missing teeth. They're able to replace an entire arch of missing teeth for either your upper or lower jaws. Complete dentures are composed of artificial ceramic teeth that sit on a body-safe, pink acrylic base that mirrors healthy gum tissue. Full dentures are also removable, which makes cleaning and maintenance straightforward.

Partial Dentures: If you still have healthy teeth, we recommend partial dentures. Compared to full dentures, partial dentures use metal clasps attached to healthy, natural teeth for support. Like complete dentures, our Fort Myers partial dentures are removable, which can help make cleaning and care easier.

Extractions: One of our highest priorities is saving as much of your natural teeth as possible. However, for you to receive your dentures, we may need to remove severely decayed or damaged teeth. Our staff is skilled at gentle extractions and will ensure that your gums properly heal so that your dentures fit perfectly without complications.

Relining & Repair: Although dentures are durable and meant to withstand biting and chewing, they require care and maintenance. Our practice is proud to offer denture relining and repair. Denture relining is a procedure that refits the section of your dentures that rests against your gums to create a secure and comfortable hold. Denture repair is when we fix chips to the artificial teeth of your dentures or cracks to the pink acrylic base.

Dentures FAQs

It's normal to have countless questions about our Fort Myers partial and complete dentures. Some frequently asked questions about dentures include:

Can I wear my dentures when I sleep?
We highly recommend that you remove your dentures before going to sleep so that your mouth can rest and your dentures can be cleaned. By removing, cleaning, and storing your dentures in water, you ensure that your dentures are clean and ready for use in the morning.

Do I have to adjust my diet with dentures?
Although you can expect to consume much of the same foods and drinks, it's advisable that you moderately adjust your diet. We recommend reducing your consumption of hard or sticky foods to help prolong the life of your dentures.

How do I know if my dentures need to be relined?
If you find that your dentures don't fit as securely as they used to, it may be time to bring them in for relining. We recommend that you not use over-the-counter relining kits, as it can worsen the issue.
