Is It Time for Dentures?
Is it time for you to get dentures? Discover how modern dentures can improve your smile, your life and your health.
Are You Losing Your Teeth?
There are several reasons that you might be losing your teeth.
Maybe you’ve had trouble with your teeth and gums for years, despite your best efforts to practice good oral care.
You might have had an illness that damaged your dental health. That happens to many people with autoimmune diseases. Trauma can also lead to tooth loss.
Whatever the reason, you’re starting to realize that you’re ready to think about dentures.
Are You Worried About Getting Dentures?
Getting dentures is a big step, and many people worry that it’s going to be a long, painful process. This is most often not the case.
Don’t let those fears stop you getting dentures when you need them. The benefits of getting dentures make them a great way to get your smile back.

Bring Back Your Smile and Your Confidence with Dentures
There are many reasons to feel good about getting dentures.
Improve your smile. Dentures will change the way you look when you smile, talk and meet people. Some people are so self-conscious about their broken, damaged teeth that they never smile or laugh. With dentures, you can regain your smile and your confidence.
Make eating easier. Without teeth, it’s hard to eat and enjoy your food. You might also be embarrassed to eat in front of other people. With dentures, you can enjoy eating your favorite foods and socializing.
Protect your remaining teeth. Wearing dentures reduces pressure on your remaining teeth and crowns. Dentures also make it easier to keep your natural teeth clean. That helps improve your gum health.
Speak clearly. If you have a lot of missing teeth, your speech may be affected. Are you tired of sounding like you’re slurring and mumbling? Get dentures and speak clearly.
Types of Dentures
There are several types of dentures you can get. Dr. Malan can advise you about the best way to restore the function and looks of your teeth.
If you don’t have total tooth loss, you can regain your smile with a partial denture. You can get a partial denture if you still have enough natural teeth left to support the partial denture.
If all or most of your natural teeth are gone, you will need full dentures. Full dentures cover both the top and bottom gums with a complete row of teeth.
Implant-supported dentures give you a more substantial answer to tooth loss. To secure the dentures, your dentist or surgeon first places anywhere from two to four implants. Once the implants heal, they create much improved retention for the dentures. These dentures look and feel totally natural.
Which One Is Right for You?
The type of denture you need depends on several factors. Dr. Malan can examine your teeth and gums to determine the best option for you.
