What Are Full Dentures in Tampa?
A fully edentulous patient has lost all their teeth on one or both arches. A set of custom-fabricated artificial teeth can restore the missing teeth.
Complete dentures are fabricated using models of the patient’s mouth, including each arch. The dentures fit snugly against the arches, providing the patient with teeth they can eat with, and that can help improve their speech and appearance.
The dentures are removable, so the patient can easily clean the dentures (and their gum tissue) each morning and night.
The artificial teeth are fabricated out of acrylic or porcelain and are carefully placed in a pink acrylic base to match the shade of the gum tissue. The dentures are held in place by suction between the denture and the arch. Over time, dentures can become loose, so patients may opt for denture adhesive to secure the dentures in place.
What Are the Benefits of Complete Dentures in Tampa?
When you have a full set of teeth, it’s easier to speak and eat. You’ll feel more comfortable and confident talking with people and sharing your smile with them when you have complete dentures.
When you’re missing your teeth, it’s hard to chew on foods you once loved, like meat, nuts, and crunchy foods like vegetables or crusty bread. A complete set of dentures allows you to eat your favorite foods again. And if you’re able to eat a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and other nutrient-dense foods, you’ll be able to assimilate more nutrients, which promotes better overall health.
