When it comes to dentures Antioch is the city to go and get the dentures you deserve today.
Dentures are prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth in your mouth with conventional dentures being removable. There are partial dentures when there are still some natural teeth remaining and complete dentures when all of the teeth are missing.
Dentures are generally made out of a hard resin and help keep the structure of the mouth by supporting the area around the cheeks and lips. It improves the appearance of a smile when there are many missing teeth. Dentures make it possible to eat foods that require chewing and help maintain a similar diet as natural teeth.
There are two main types of dentures: partial dentures are chosen when you still have some of your natural teeth, full dentures to replace all of your missing teeth.
A partial denture features two metal pieces made from all-acrylic or acrylic material that hold the denture in the mouth and prevents other teeth from moving around. You take it out when you need to, especially at night while you sleep. A full or complete denture sits on top or bottom of the gum line held in place by suction or oral adhesive. It is also easy to remove for cleaning and sleeping purposes.
There are other types of dentures, including custom dentures (made of more expensive teeth), implant supported dentures (implant securely supports the denture) snap-in dentures (held in place with an implant onto an existing teeth), overdentures (can be placed on the upper and/or lower jaw and sits on top of the gums), and upper dentures (for the upper teeth).
Anyone with sufficient amount of healthy gum tissue and jawbone is a good candidate for an Antioch denture. Depending on how many teeth are missing, your dentist will discuss with you whether to get a partial or complete denture.
On average, it takes up to four weeks to receive your dentures after your teeth have been removed.
