Fill Out Your Smile With Dentures
Patients struggling with missing teeth have a variety of options to repair their smile and maintain their chewing force. You can solve problems caused by missing teeth when you visit Greenstein Dental, your comprehensive Miami dental office dedicated to serving patients of all dental needs.
Dentures, commonly referred to as false teeth, are removable or implant-supported prosthetics that can replace all of your teeth or only some of your teeth. Dentures can be supported by soft and hard tissues inside your mouth or by dental implants, which give your appliance optimal stability.
Patients can lose teeth for a number of reasons. Advanced gum disease, a traumatic bite, or medical conditions can all cause patients to face complete loss of their natural teeth. Properly fitting dentures restore beauty and function by regaining lip support, improving phonetics, offering more fullness to the cheeks, and giving people the ability to chew their food with confidence.
At Greenstein Dental, we perform a careful inspection of your mouth and facial features as well as jaw function prior to fabricating your new set of dentures. We will also review all maintenance issues with you upon receipt of your new teeth. Our talented technician can meet with each patient to ensure that the dentures fit perfectly and do not cause discomfort.
Removable dentures are more cost effective than dental implants, but implant-supported dentures give patients maximum stability and chewing force. Removable dentures only provide about one-fourth of the chewing force you had with your natural teeth. Dental implants, however, can bring about 90 percent of the chewing power of natural teeth. This gives you a wider variety of food options and allows you to maintain a healthy diet.
We encourage patients with missing teeth to consider the overall benefit of implant-supported dentures before simply assessing the cost. Our dental implants stabilize your teeth, preserve your jawbone, and give you maximum chewing force.
Our dentures do not interrupt your speech and can last years when cared for properly. We ask our denture wearers to brush their dentures will a soft-bristle toothbrush and store them in water overnight to ensure the appliances do not warp or change shape.
Even if you’re missing all of your teeth, you still need to visit our office for regular checkups and exams. Relining the interior surface of dentures will occasionally be performed over the years to assure a continually snug and comfortable fit of the prosthesis.
