O’Fallon Dentures Dentist Explains Key Considerations When Crafting New Dentures

Written by Dr. Brace on Mar 3, 2015

Our O’Fallon dentist believe that every patient—not matter his or her dental history—deserves to have a healthy and attractive smile. That is why we are so devoted to offering high quality tooth replacement options for people suffering from tooth loss.

In our office, every restorative tooth replacement treatment plan is completely customized. We make sure that dental prosthetics fit our patients’ lives and their appearances.

Today we are going to be talking about the things we take into account when creating a new denture for a patient:

1. Fit

This is perhaps the most important consideration! We will take a mold of your gum tissue, so that the denture base fits snugly and comfortably over your gum and jaw tissues. We also offer implant-stabilized dentures, which stay in place 24/7, and are actually grounded into your smile with titanium roots.

2. Tooth appearance

The next step is to make sure that your denture looks natural and lovely in your mouth. We base your prosthetic teeth off of your natural teeth—you can even bring in old pictures of yourself so that we can get a good idea of your natural dental shapes. The replacement teeth in your denture will be sized, shaped, positioned, and shaded to look natural for you.

3. Gum tissue

The base of the denture is designed to look like gum tissue. The Geneva 2000 dentures, which we use in our office, are crafted with highly realistic resin to replicate gum tissue. We create these dentures to look natural for each patient’s gender, age, and skin color.

With our O’Fallon dentists the denture creation process is highly detailed, thorough, and personalized. You’ll be amazed at the gorgeous results we are able to achieve. Please call our office if you want additional information or to schedule a consultation!
