What are dentures?
Dentures are removable dental prosthetics that are used to replace missing teeth. If you are missing all or many of your teeth, it may be beneficial for you to restore the function, health, and appearance of your smile with dentures in Washington, District Of Columbia. At the dental office of James K Feldman DDS, we are happy to offer complete and partial dentures to suit the individual needs of our patients. Dentures can help to restore your ability to speak and chew naturally, as well as give you an attractive-looking smile.
What is a complete denture?
A complete denture replaces an entire arch of teeth. A complete denture might replace the top arch, bottom arch, or both arches. Depending on your individual needs, complete dentures might be an excellent option in one or both of your jaws.
What is a partial denture?
If you are missing several teeth but also have healthy natural teeth remaining as well, partial dentures are likely to be a great option for you. These partial dentures attach to your remaining teeth with clasps.
How long will my dentures last?
With proper care, dentures should have a long lifespan. You should continue to properly clean your remaining natural teeth and gums, as well as brush your dentures to prevent staining. Dentures should also be rinsed between meals and stored in water or denture cleaner at night.
