Do you need dentures? Are you worried that they will look obvious and feel uncomfortable? If so, you can put your worries to rest. Dentures placed at Singh Smile Care are nothing like the “false teeth” that your grandparents wore. New materials and technology allow us to create dentures that are secure and comfortable and make it possible for you to eat and speak normally.
Phoenix dentist Dr. Jupneesh Singh knows that dentures that are old, worn, or improperly fitting can affect your oral health as well as your lifestyle. They cause discomfort and may make it difficult to chew and speak properly. Whether you need to replace older, ill-fitting dentures or are facing the prospect of having them placed for the first time, we are sure you will be pleasantly surprised at the beautiful, natural-looking dentures we can create for you.
Why Do I Need Dentures?
Dentures are usually used to replace teeth that have been lost due to decay, gum disease, or injury. In some cases, you may only need a partial set of dentures to replace several missing teeth in a row. In other situations, a full set of dentures (called complete dentures) may be required if all your teeth are removed.
Your teeth help support your facial muscles, so it is important to replace missing teeth to avoid developing a sunken appearance that makes you look older than you are. Missing teeth also allow surrounding teeth to shift, leading to other serious problems like deterioration of your jaw.
How Are Today’s Dentures Different?
Older dentures were made using materials available at the time. They were quite rigid, causing irritation and even pain. But dental technology has come a long way, and dentures today are made of resilient material that is much more comfortable and can be made to look like your own teeth.
Another problem with dentures is that they tend to slide and shift. Dr. Singh is experienced in placing dental implants, which can be placed strategically in your jaw to provide complete support for your dentures and eliminate the problem of slipping and shifting.
Dental implants also help to support your jawbone, which can prevent bone loss and deterioration. When we retain dentures with implants, it not only increases your comfort and enhances your oral health but also allows you to eat the foods you enjoy without fear of embarrassment from slipping dentures.
Dr. Singh understands that getting dentures for the first time can be overwhelming for some people. We will carefully guide you through the entire process and explain everything to you in detail before we proceed. Our compassionate, knowledgeable team will take all the time necessary to answer your questions until you are completely comfortable.
