With today’s technology, there is no reason to go without teeth!
It is not just a matter of being able to eat. Our smile is our calling card and plays an incredible role in how we function in our day to day relationships and how we feel about ourselves, which directly effects our overall health and happiness.
Dentures are worn by patients who have lost all of their teeth, while Partial Dentures are worn to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Patients elect to have removable prosthetic appliances such as dentures or partial dentures made when they are not a good candidate for fixed or implant retained restorations or if their budget is limited. Modern technology now provides acrylic material used in dentures and partial dentures to look more natural than ever before and Dr. Roth works with world class dental labs that are up to date on all of the latest procedures and materials available to keep you looking and feeling your best.
Having a denture or partial denture made typically requires several appointments in which Dr. Roth uses various measurements to insure a precise fit and proper aesthetics of your removable appliance. It is important that your jaws are positioned correctly while wearing a denture or partial denture. Improper positioning of the jaws can cause misalignment to the TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint) and lead to discomfort or headaches.
During these “fitting” appointments, Dr. Roth will ask for your feedback on the look and feel of your prosthetic appliance and communicate closely with the dental lab to make sure you are happy with the shape of the teeth, the size and color of the teeth, and the overall fit. Dr. Roth will make sure that your denture is not only functional, but that you enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile.
Sometimes Dr. Roth can utilize dental implants to help better secure the denture for a nice snug fit. He will be able to explain if you are a good candidate for implant retained dentures.
