Dentures can Transform Your Smile in Largo, FL
Dentures crafted by Florida Dental Centers in Largo, Florida, can be a good solution for people who need to replace missing teeth. Teeth can be lost due to any number of causes, such as decay, trauma, and periodontal disease. Missing teeth should be addressed promptly; otherwise, the remaining natural teeth can shift out of position. Dentures can also improve a patient’s ability to speak and chew, as well as fill out and enhance a sagging facial appearance.
Your dentist at Florida Dental Centers in Largo, FL, will ensure that your dentures are custom-designed for optimal function and comfort. Typically, the process works like this:
- Your dentist will examine your overall oral health, including your teeth, gums, and bone structure, and prescribe the best course of treatment to meet your needs.
- If full or partial dentures are recommended for you, some or all of your remaining natural teeth may need to be removed.
- Measurements and impressions will be taken of your gums. Every crevice and ridge will be carefully molded to ensure an optimal fit and appearance.
- If you opt for temporary immediate dentures, your first set will be placed immediately after your teeth are extracted so that you will never be without teeth.
- After your final dentures are custom fabricated in our own, in-house lab, they will be placed when your gums are fully healed and healthy.
As your dentist at Florida Dental Centers will explain, false teeth are designed to look natural. However, they usually require a period of adjustment. During the first few weeks with your new teeth, you might need to eat soft foods until you become accustomed to their feel and function. Over time, your dentures will likely need to be adjusted. With an on-site denture repair lab in each office, we make the repair process easy and convenient for our patients.
