What kinds of dentures does Parklin Dental offer?
Dentures can help a variety of people in many dental situations. When you think of a denture, you may envision an entire arch of teeth which fit onto the gums and replace a whole row of teeth. However, there are other types of dentures available. Partial dentures utilize any healthy teeth remaining in your smile. The denture fits on or around the teeth to incorporate them into the new smile. Immediate dentures, worn immediately after an extraction surgery, allow patients to have their teeth replaced the same day as they are removed, allowing them to go about their daily lives with a smile they feel good about.
How are dentures made?
A dental laboratory creates each denture by hand and customizes it especially for your mouth. This ensures the best fit and a natural look. The lab technician uses a mold of your mouth as a model to create the denture. The fit of the denture is especially important as this affects how the denture stays in the mouth and allows you to eat, chew, and speak. The laboratory creates a temporary denture to ensure the look and fit are up to par. With the denture approved, the laboratory creates a final prosthetic.
