What is a Denture?

A denture is a dental prosthetic created to replace all of the teeth along the upper or lower gums, and a set of dentures takes the place of every tooth in a smile. For patients who are only missing one to three teeth in a row, Dr. Naik can fit a partial denture to revitalize oral health.

A partial denture is a smaller row of artificial teeth, and stays in place by clipping to existing teeth on either side of the gap formed by the missing pearly whites. Dentures maintain their position with suction, and sometimes a little denture cream. These replacements are cleaned with a toothbrush and toothpaste like normal teeth, although Dr. Naik may recommend a particular type of toothpaste for your needs. You’ll soak your dentures or partial denture overnight in a glass of water, and can even add a denture tablet to the cup for an added cleanse.

With today’s dental technology, it’s possible to customize dentures and partial dentures to the mouths of each patient. You’ll work with Dr. Naik as she plans your treatment, performs any necessary extractions, and measures your jaw and gums carefully. A licensed dental ceramist will craft your restoration from these notes for your beautiful smile.

Wearing a denture or partial denture will allow you to enjoy your favorite foods once more, and can even give you a more youthful appearance. Teeth provide a natural barrier which prevents cheeks from sinking inward and sagging, so dentures or partials can prevent this from happening. Once you’ve worked with our Flint practice to obtain well-fitting dentures or a partial, you’ll feel confident in knowing that you have a refreshed image and bite.
