Traditional Dentures in Van Wert

Dentures are removable dental prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth and restore oral function and aesthetics. They are custom-made to fit the unique shape of an individual's mouth and can be either full dentures (replacing all teeth in an arch) or partial dentures (replacing some missing teeth while preserving remaining natural teeth).

The process of getting dentures typically involves several steps. After an initial examination, impressions and measurements are taken to create a mold for the dentures. The dentist works closely with the patient to determine the size, shape, and color of the artificial teeth, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.

Full dentures rely on suction or adhesives to stay in place, while partial dentures are often secured with metal or plastic clasps attached to adjacent natural teeth.

Dentures provide numerous benefits, including restoring the ability to chew and speak, supporting facial muscles to prevent a sunken appearance, and improving the overall appearance of the smile. Proper care and regular dental check-ups are essential to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of dentures. In some cases, adjustments or relining may be necessary to maintain an optimal fit over time
