How Dentures Help Your Health
Let’s start with the cosmetic side of things. Everyone should be happy to smile for photos and laugh out loud when life is good. If you’re constantly hiding your smile with your lips or hand during these great moments, your friends and family notice, and you’re dealing with totally unnecessary stress.
Our dentures can also help you look much younger, thanks to reshaping your jaw and improving your facial profile.
As mentioned before, your overall health is also a major factor. If you can’t eat the foods you love or consume harder, healthy foods like apples, you’re just missing out on too much good stuff that can make you happy and feel great.
How Kirchner Dental’s Dentures Work
We’ll create a set of natural-looking replacement teeth with a gum-colored base that can fit comfortably in your mouth.
If you have lost many teeth but still have a few that don’t need to be extracted, we can create partial dentures that easily attach to them. Partial dentures can replace several teeth in a row.
For full dentures, we provide a nontoxic adhesive that you put in the base to prevent slippage while you eat.
We also provide implant-supported and implant-retained dentures. Let’s check out the differences between the two:
- Implant-supported dentures connect to dental implants, so they aren’t going anywhere unless you come in for a visit and we do it for you. You can clean these just as you would your natural teeth!
- Implant-retained dentures use ball-and-socket joints that can snap into your implants. These aren’t as stable but can be easily removed for cleaning or any time you like.
If you do have dentures but are experiencing slippage or “floating” while you eat, Kirchner Dental offers reconstructive dentures.
Once you’ve had teeth removed, your jaw can shrink and hinder the stability of your dentures. Using the latest technology to ensure total comfort and efficiency, Dr. Kirchner will create an impression of your mouth to make sure your dentures fit well.
Any issues regarding bone loss in your jaw from tooth extractions will be considered and remedied. This all results in incredibly stable dentures.
If You’re Missing Only One Or Two Teeth …
Our dental implants and dental bridges can take care of that. Once you’re in our office, we’ll perform a simple exam that will tell us whether you require full dentures, partial dentures, or another treatment to return your smile to normal. Learn more about dental implants and bridges today!
Dental Anxiety And Why You Should Always Be Happy To Visit Our Office
Let’s get this out of the way first: we never perform any treatments unless they are absolutely necessary. Your health is of the utmost importance to us, but so is your comfort level.
Once you’re here, you’ll feel just like a member of our family thanks to our caring staff. In our waiting area, you’ll find snack and drinks. When it’s time for us to start working on your smile, you can channel surf on one of the TVs we provide in each exam room or use our iPad headphones. You can even relieve stress by taking advantage of our padded massage chairs!
If you have dental anxiety issues, we offer sedation options including nitrous oxide and oral sedation. We also use a computer-controlled system called The Wand to gently apply local anesthesia, which means no more painful needles when it comes to numbing.
Lastly, a note for you parents: if you can’t find a sitter, we make sure all young ones have the most relaxing and fun experience possible at our office.
