Dentures

Dentures or false teeth are constructed to replace missing teeth and are supported by gum tissue. They are custom made to fit your mouth, so they take on the appearance of your natural teeth.

 

Traditionally, they have been removable, but modern techniques can now provide dentures that are secured in place with dental implants, giving greater stability. They also cover less tissue, allowing for an improved ability to taste compared to older style dentures.

Dentures can help you with:

  • Chewing –improved by replacing toothless areas with denture teeth
  • Aesthetics –the presence of teeth provides support for the lips and cheeks and corrects the collapsed appearance that results from the loss of teeth
  • Pronunciation – replacing missing teeth allows you to speak better
  • Self-esteem – improved looks and speech may boost your confidence

The Fono dentists can fit you with removable partial dentures or complete dentures, depending on the health of your real teeth. The first step in getting dentures is to have a consultation with your dentist, who will assess your teeth and talk you through denture treatment.
