Dentures Q&A

What are dentures?

Dentures are artificial teeth that take the place of your natural teeth or snap over the top of them to improve the appearance of your smile.

Complete dentures replace all-natural teeth, while partial dentures replace just your top or bottom teeth. There are many reasons patients choose dentures. The Morris Dental Associates team perfects the look and function of your smile using a personalized denture treatment plan. 

Dr. Morris doesn’t insert dental implants used for implant-supported dentures but creates custom-fitted dentures that attach to previously placed implants. She can also replace worn-down or damaged dentures. 

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dentures available at Morris Dental Associates provide the following benefits:

  • Elimination of tooth gaps
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • Beautiful smile
  • Greater self-confidence

Having a full set of gorgeous teeth can do wonders for your confidence and overall quality of life.

Who is a candidate for dentures?

Dr. Morris discusses your oral health history, reviews your goals, examines your teeth, and evaluates the results of your dental X-rays to determine if dentures are right for you. Dentures may be your solution if you have missing, unsightly, or damaged natural teeth. Dr. Morris can replace attachment denture pieces.

Morris Dental Associates also offers crowns and bridges, tooth-colored fillings, veneers, and other cosmetic and restorative dental treatments.

Some patients first require tooth extraction before they receive dentures. Dr. Morris can refer you to another specialist to complete this procedure.

What should I expect when receiving dentures?

Dr. Morris scans or takes a mold of your mouth to fit you for dentures. A lab creates a custom-fitted device that fits snugly over your gums or natural teeth. Some dentures attach to dental implants, which are metal posts inserted into your jawbone.

When your dentures are ready, Dr. Morris ensures they fit properly and comfortably. Many patients love snap-on dentures (Snap-On Smile®), as they reduce the goop sometimes associated with traditional dentures.

How should I care for my dentures?

Dr. Morris explains how to care for your dentures. As instructed, brush and clean them regularly using cleaning products designed for dentures.

Call the Morris Dental Associates office if your dentures feel off, become uncomfortable, or get damaged. Avoid chewing on hard objects to reduce the risk of damaging your dentures, and see the Morris Dental Associates team at least every six months for dental exams and cleanings.
