Concerned about multiple missing teeth? You may be a good candidate for full arch dentures; just ask Dr. Johnston, your dentist in Abingdon, VA.
When all of your upper or lower teeth are missing, we may recommend a full denture for replacing them.
Dentures can be a good way to help you eat more easily, speak clearly, and have a natural-looking smile. Today's technological advances also make dentures fit better than in the past.
Diagnosis and Treatment
To determine if dentures are right for you, we perform a thorough exam of your gums and any remaining teeth. The exam typically includes x-rays to check the health of your jawbone. We also take impressions to create an accurate model of your mouth.
The best positions of the center line and lip line are recorded, so the denture teeth can be placed attractively. We will work with you to select the best color and shape for your new teeth.
There are several types of full dentures, so we will talk with you about the best type for your situation.
Benefits of Dentures
Because dentures replace missing teeth, they provide many obvious benefits, including easier eating and clearer speech. Dentures help your jaws work correctly and comfortably; therefore, their use also promotes the proper function of jaw joints and muscles. In addition, dentures provide support for lips and cheeks, giving you a more youthful appearance.
