Dentures are among the greatest developments in the history of dentistry. The concept is simple but effective, giving toothless patients the opportunity to smile again with very little investment of time or money. Unfortunately, this bright idea has a dark side. Dentures only work well when they fit perfectly. Otherwise, they can slip, slide, poke, prod, and fall out at the worst possible moment. Don't worry, your friends at Big Smile Dental can solve your denture woes.
Contrary to what some frustrated denture wearers believe, you are not doomed to a life of discomfort and runaway teeth. At Big Smile Dental, we offer several great options for correcting the problem:
- Adjustments – A few minor issues with brand new dentures are normal. At Big Smile Dental, we aren't satisfied until you love your smile. We usually see patients for a follow up within a few days, to sculpt and refine the denture until the fit is just right.
- Relining – If your once comfortable denture no longer fits well, it can be repaired easily. Relining is a simple process of taking new impressions and re-creating the contours of your existing denture, so it will fit like new.
- A new denture – We would like to think that all dentists are as skilled, experienced, and careful as those at Big Smile Dental, but that isn't always the case. A denture made by an inexperienced, careless, or artistically challenged dentist may never be "just right." If your denture isn't as beautiful as you would like, or if it has never been comfortable, we can make you a brand new one.
- Dental implants – If you want the ultimate fix for denture trouble, it's time to look at dental implants. They replace the tooth roots, giving your denture the same stable foundation that natural teeth have. Even a lower denture can look, feel, and function just like real teeth. Implants even protect your jawbone, which tends to melt away after teeth are lost.
Today's dentures are beautiful, comfortable, and functional. If yours look or feel like a relic from the days of ugly, clunky "fake teeth," call Big Smile Dental at 773-772-8400. Let us put a big smile on your face!
