It can be very uncomfortable going through life with several missing teeth. Simple tasks such as talking and eating can become difficult.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

With any restorative and cosmetic work we do, the goal is to give you a set of teeth that is both natural looking and functional. Basically, anyone who has multiple missing teeth can benefit from getting dentures, but not everyone is immediately eligible. The first step to getting dentures in Lincoln is to visit Dr. Shirk, so he can evaluate your teeth and mouth to see if dentures would be the best solution for you. In order to qualify you must be in good oral health, meaning your mouth must be free of decay or infection. If necessary, we can address these issues before we worry about your dentures.

Types of Dentures

All dentures consist of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base. However, the three kinds of dentures differ in the number of teeth they replace and how they are held in place.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures fit among your remaining natural teeth in order to fill in the gaps like a puzzle piece. This allows us to preserve your healthy teeth without needing to modify them, as with a bridge.

Full Dentures

As the name suggests, a full set of dentures is used to replace an entire arch of teeth. A small amount of denture adhesive may be necessary to secure it, but after a short adjustment period, you will become accustomed to how they feel.

Implant Dentures

Although implant dentures are the most complex replacement option, they most closely resemble real tooth structure, which provides many advantages. In addition to more stability, implants keep the jawbone strong and enable you to eat basically anything you want.

The Benefits of Dentures

With modern technology, our skilled dentists create prosthetics that make your replacement teeth look just like the real thing. As a result, you can have confidence in your smile again! Not only are dentures beneficial for aesthetics, but they also enable you to get the nutrients your body needs through healthy food. Without teeth, it can also be difficult to speak clearly, but when you have high quality dentures, you can make your voice be heard.
