Affordable dentures provide our patients with the ability to enjoy eating their favorite foods without having to endure the pain and inconvenience of living life with missing teeth. While all the benefits of wearing dentures are so obvious, why do people wait on replacing their missing teeth?
One answer is the fear of the unknown or anxiety of what will happen. Dr. Stan wants his patients to rest assured that receiving complete or partial dentures should not make them feel uncomfortable sitting in a dental chair. "I have worked over the years to be able to offer dental care tailored specifically for you. Whether you see a dentist on a regular basis or haven’t been to a dentist in many years, I assure you that I’ll make your visit as relaxing as possible."
Benefits of Affordable Dentures
Do you remember the delicious ears of corn on the cob you used to enjoy, before one or more teeth got loose or fell out? Partial and complete dentures allow you to enjoy foods that you have become accustomed to eating. Why should you sacrifice loving the foods you ate as a kid, when Dr. Montee can repair, make, or replace new dentures?
Here are some reasons to schedule an appointment for complete or partial dentures repair or replacement work.
No More Communication Breakdowns
Even one missing tooth can significantly impair your ability to communicate properly with colleagues at work and family members at home. The addition of dentures restore the oral physical attributes that allows you to speak clearly in front of large groups, as well as when you interact with people on a one-on-one basis. It might take you a little time to get used to speaking with dentures, but the transition period is worth the discovery of your newfound oral skills.
Receiving dentures generates a huge boost in confidence. With missing a tooth or teeth, you tend to smile less and shy away from making connections with family, friends, and coworkers. Pearly white partials or complete dentures gives you the confidence to take calculated chances in your career, as well as make you more open to meet families that have recently moved into the neighborhood.
Relieve Pain Caused by Broken or Missing Teeth
Having your tooth decayed to the point you cannot save it can cause considerable pain. An exposed tooth nerve is highly vulnerable to the slightest change in temperature from food or drink being consumed. Dr. Montee encourages his patients to schedule appointments for dentures immediately after their extractions to help get their smile restored and functional.
Have the dAZZLING smile you’ve always wanted
Complete dentures offer you the chance to flash those pearly whites you always wish you had. We understand that specific skin tones reflect a different shade of white, and we don’t want you to look silly. We want you to have natural-looking teeth that don’t have stains, cracks, or wear and tear. This is where your opportunity for a perfect smile begins. We will match the best color for the whitest smile that is natural and beautiful, just like you.
What Are Complete Dentures?
Also referred to as full dentures, complete dentures represent dental appliances that you can remove. The protective replacements for a full set of teeth typically contain strong acrylic or porcelain to prevent chipping and denting. An acrylic base ensures full dentures remain secured to the jaw and gums. Dr. Montee recommends complete dentures for patients that experience significant tooth loss because of gradual decay or a substantial injury that knocks most of the teeth out of the mouth. He has worked extensively with athletes and professionals that have received oral injuries on work sites. Full dentures help you regain full chewing power, as well as fill out your facial appearance that had become withdrawn because of the lack of support for the jawbone. The polymethyl (PMMA) base of full dentures imitates natural gum tissue to make the transition to complete dentures as seamless as possible.
What Are Partial Dentures?
Dentures that replace one tooth or a few teeth scattered about the mouth typically connect to aplastic base that appear similar to the color of your gums. Dentures that take the place of one tooth or a couple of teeth can possess a metal foundation that clasp to your remaining real teeth. The natural looking connectors make it appear as if you flash a smile with all your original teeth. Precision attachments work only for partial dentures, not dentures that take the place of most of the chipped and/or broken teeth in your mouth. Dr. Montee might suggest adding one or more crowns on the remaining natural teeth to improve the fit of removable dentures that partially cover just a small portion of the mouth.
