If you’re missing all of your teeth on an entire arch, we’ll likely suggest getting full dentures. These are custom-fitted restorations that consist of a gum-colored acrylic base and customized artificial teeth that are attached. The base of the dentures are crafted to utilize natural suction created in your mouth to hold the restorations in place over your gums. You can also improve the stability by adding a few dabs of denture adhesive as well. In order to get your dentures to preserve their shape and continue fitting you comfortably, it’s important that you take them out every night before you go to bed and place them in a glass of room temperature water. We’ll also provide you with some denture care tips so you can get the most out of them.
