Attention to Detail Makes All the Difference with Dentures


Posted on 10/30/2016 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
A pair of complete dentures.
Removable dentures are still a popular option when it comes to replacing missing teeth, especially for patients that have experienced complete tooth loss.

Advancements have been made to make these dentures appear more realistic while improving functionality, but it still takes both experience and skill to create a set of dentures that fits properly and looks natural. High attention to detail will leave you with a beautiful new smile.

Determining Tooth Placement

The first step in creating the best dentures for your mouth is to determine the tooth placement of each denture. Your dentist will use facial features to establish landmark placements so that the lower and upper teeth align properly. The size of the teeth and orientation in relation to your lips will also be considered.

Making Gums Look Realistic

With a good pair of dentures, the gums will also look realistic every time that you smile. This is especially true if your upper lip rises above the teeth in order to expose more of the gum tissues. The texture and color of the natural gums will need to match, and dentures should also incorporate the palatal rugae, or the small ridges found behind the upper front teeth.

Comfort Level
When your dentures are placed in your mouth, they also need to have a comfortable fit. However, with time you will likely experience some bone loss due to no longer having natural teeth to stimulate growth of the jaw bone, so they could become loose and uncomfortable. For that reason, you will need to visit with your dentist periodically to ensure that they still fit well and that the underling bone and tissues are remaining healthy.

When the time comes for you to get dentures, you and your dentist will work together as a team to iron out all of the important details. Contact our office today if you are ready to explore denture options.
