Knoxville, TN area dentist explains complete dentures
Dentures have often come along with a very negative stigma. Many patients may remember their parents or grandparents with dentures. These acrylic apparatus floating in a glass of water on the bed stand or next to the bathroom sink may bring back memories of fake looking false teeth. Thankfully, with state-of-the-art technologies and modern materials, dentists such as Dr. Pablo Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts can provide patients with more natural looking complete dentures to restore their smiles. Patients in and around the Knoxville, TN area can enjoy full dentures that look and function like their own teeth and can prevent the embarrassment of ill-fitting or fake looking dentures.
Complete dentures are used to replace an entire arch of teeth. This may be done when patients have lost teeth due to disease, aging, or extraction. Patients need teeth to eat and speak properly, as well as feel confident about their appearance. General and cosmetic dentists provide full dentures to restore functionality and beauty to the smile.
Complete dentures are made with impressions of the gums. A specialized dental laboratory uses these impressions and instructions from the dentist to create custom dentures for patients. Patients can use complete dentures on the top, bottom, or both arches depending on their needs.
Complete dentures are held in place with dental adhesives and natural suction. Some patients may consider implant-supported dentures, which are desirable because they stay in place. Patients with implant-supported dentures can reduce shifting and irritation caused by ill-fitting dentures.
Dr. Pablo Foncea and his team are excited to provide patients with a variety of solutions when it comes to restoring the smile after tooth loss. Complete dentures are just one of many options available to patients. Men and women considering full dentures can contact Sequoyah Dental Arts today to schedule their consultation visit with Dr. Pablo Foncea and the dental team at our modern dental facility. We welcome new patients and want to ensure patients enjoy their brand new smile with quality dentures.
