Full & Partial Dentures in Clinton Township
Whether you have recently suffered tooth loss or you have been dealing with the challenges of missing teeth for some time, Dr. Mindy Salzberg-Siegel wants you to know that she can rebuild your smile with lifelike dentures. For centuries, people have been trying to build better dentures. Today, thanks to tremendous advances in manufacturing techniques and materials, dentures look and feel better than ever.
Nevertheless, people don't realize that all dentures are not created equal. Some dentures are ill fitting, uncomfortable, and unattractive. Dr. Mindy Salzberg-Siegel believes that replacement teeth should look and feel as natural as possible, so the solutions she offers are quite different. Precision-made, precision-fitted dentures look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Furthermore, good dentures can support and enhance your facial appearance. A well-fitting denture will not cause gum irritation and also will not destroy the underlying bone tissue. Therefore, Dr. Salzberg-Siegel takes great care to design dentures that spread biting and chewing forces evenly over as great an area as possible along the upper or lower jaw. In this way, bone shrinkage is less likely to happen, your dentures will fit better for a longer period of time, and your face will retain a fuller and more youthful appearance.
We offer two distinctly different options:
Artificial teeth should look and feel natural, and to ensure optimal results, Dr. Mindy utilizes advanced technology and a state-of-the-art dental lab. Cosmetic dentures are prosthetic teeth that imitate natural tooth enamel and are secured on a gum-colored base. Dentures are often held in place by a combination of muscle strength in your cheeks and tongue as well as denture adhesive. For some patients, dental implants can offer the most secure foundation for dentures. Dr. Mindy will discuss your various options, then recommend the best solution for your case.
Precision/Partial Dentures (with hidden clasps)
A partial denture consists of multiple replacement teeth on a gum-colored base. The replacement teeth fit into spaces between existing teeth to complete a smile. To secure partial dentures, clasps attach to neighboring teeth. With precision/partial dentures, clasps are hidden, which creates a more natural, esthetic result.
Caring for Dentures and Your Smile
If Dr. Salzberg-Siegel and you decide that dentures are the right tooth replacement option for you, then caring for your dentures properly will be integral to the health and appearance of your smile. You’ll want to use a special denture brush to clean your prosthetic every day. Overnight while you sleep, be sure to let your full or partial denture soak in water or a denture cleaning solution. Letting dentures dry out may lead to warping.
To ensure your continuing oral health, stick to a biannual schedule of regular dental checkups once you become a denture wearer. Clinton Township dentist Dr. Mindy will want to examine any remaining teeth and check the condition of your dentures and the way they fit over your gums.
