Are you missing teeth? You’re not alone. Millions of people are missing teeth, and many more will lose them in the future. Our dentures services in Aspen are a great solution to restore your smile and confidence.
Not the Same Old Dentures You’re Thinking Of
Dentures used to be uncomfortable and unflattering, but that’s all changed now. Dentures have come a long way in recent years.
Modern-day dentures are sleek, comfortable, and natural-looking. We use the latest technology to make sure you have a great experience with your dentures – from start to finish. We carefully craft your dentures to match your natural tooth and gum size, shape, and colors.
You don’t have to live with missing teeth – dentures can give you your smile back. You’ll also enjoy improved oral health – something that’s essential for overall well-being.
The History of Dentures
The history of dentures dates back to ancient times when false teeth were made from ivory and animal teeth. In the 1700s, dentures made from actual human teeth became popular. Today, modern dentures are much more advanced and allow you to get a more natural-looking and comfortable smile.
What are Dentures, and What Do They Do?
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that we use to replace missing or damaged teeth. They provide function and appearance, helping you to chew, speak, and even live your life normally without dental concerns. Dentures are usually made from porcelain or special dental plastic, and they sit on top of your gums. They are held in place either by suction or with a dental adhesive.
Types of Dentures at Aspen Smile
There are several different types of dentures, including complete dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported dentures. We use complete dentures to replace all of your teeth, while partial dentures replace individual missing teeth or several teeth in a row. Implant-supported dentures are anchored to dental implants, providing a more secure fit.
How to Get Fitted for Dentures at Aspen Smile
The process of getting fitted for dentures typically takes place throughout several appointments. First, we will take impressions of your teeth and gums, which we will use to create a customized set of dentures for you. We may also need to extract any remaining teeth in the way of your new dentures.
Once your dentures are ready, we will check their fit and make any adjustments as needed. It’s easy to get used to wearing your dentures, but it may take time. We will give you instructions on helping you adjust to them and care for them.
Taking Care of Your Dentures
It would be best if you also brush your dentures every day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, using a non-abrasive cleaner. You can store your dentures in liquid overnight to help them retain their shape. You should also see your dentist regularly for checkups and professional cleanings.
Benefits of Having Dentures
Having dentures has many benefits, including improved appearance, function, and oral health. Dentures can help you feel confident about your smile, making it easier to communicate and socialize with others. They also allow you to eat and speak normally, eliminating the need for special diet restrictions. By adding structural support within your mouth, they also help prevent jaw and facial structure changes. And, of course, dentures can help transform your overall health by eliminating dental concerns like tooth decay and gum disease.
