Prosthodontics

Dentures essentially act as a bridge of prosthetic teeth and gums to strengthen the mouth and bite. A full or partial denture is used to fill and strengthen sections of the mouth where teeth have been lost.

Depending on how many natural teeth a patient has lost, the dentist may recommend full dentures or partial dentures. If a patient has lost all of their teeth, complete or full dentures is a great restorative option.

Creating your dentures

The process of creating a denture is completed through a series of molding or impression taking that allows for the denture to be properly sized and fitted to the patient’s unique mouth and jaw shape/size.

During your Hanover dentures consultation, the dental care provider or prosthodontics specialist (dentist or denturist) will determine whether a full or partial denture is needed, taking into account the overall health and condition of the teeth, gums and jaw bone. While the effects of gum disease can be very damaging to oral health, through proper preventive care and oral hygiene, patients can easily avoid problems associated with gum disease.
