Full Dentures to Replace Missing Teeth

I've been making dentures for years with many positive outcomes. I assume you already know about what a denture is. Dentures aren't as satisfying as having a full set of natural teeth, but they tend to make most people satisfied. If the denture you have doesn't satisfy your needs, tell your dentist in Lakeland, FL. Feel free to seek another opinion for a denture consult if you have any doubts. Keep in mind that dentures are an economical option compared to implant dentures, and regular dentures only provide approximately (replace approx with symbol) 25 percent of the chewing efficiency of natural teeth.

Common Issues with Full or Partial Dentures

  • Your denture moves too much or falls down when talking
  • Denture moves or the denture is wobbling while eating
  • Your denture shows too much gums, giving you a gummy smile
  • Your denture is too bulky, pushing out your lips
  • Your denture's teeth are in the wrong position
  • The denture doesn't bite properly
  • The dentures are difficult to speak with
  • Your denture doesn't cover your gums properly

There are many reasons why people may not be satisfied with their dentures in Lakeland, FL. I've made over a thousand dentures with many positive results. One key reason for having success with dentures has been taking the time to troubleshoot denture problems when they inevitably arise. Dentures are difficult to make perfect on the first try, so having a dentist with the knowledge of how to correct any denture issues as well as take the extra time to fix denture problems is crucial if the denture doesn't work well at the denture delivery appointment. Many people wearing dentures have issues that they don't realize are rectifiable, so don't assume that your denture cannot be better.
