What are dentures?

Dentures are a tooth-replacement solution for people who have lost many teeth. They’re handcrafted and personalized to your unique tooth shade, for beautiful, straight teeth you can feel confident showing.

Tomase Dental Care also places dental implants to support the artificial teeth. With implant-retained dentures, you never have to worry about slipping or sliding.

Dr. Tomase will craft your denture plan to achieve a functional bite and gorgeous smile, taking into account:

  • The shade of your teeth and gums
  • The length of your teeth
  • The shape of your teeth
  • The translucency of your teeth and gums

With dentures, you can feel confident smiling, laughing, eating, and drinking. They will also improve your oral health, as missing teeth often cause additional complications if not replaced.

How are dentures created?

Tomase Dental Care is a proud general and cosmetic dentistry practice with nearly 40 years of experience creating dentures. With Dr. Tomase’s unique skill set, he can create the perfect dentures for your smile.

First, Dr. Tomase will take impressions of your teeth and gums to fabricate models for the denture creation process. This ensures that your dentures feel as comfortable as possible and look natural. Implant-retained dentures require oral surgery, during which Dr. Tomase inserts dental implants into your jawbone. You will require a healing period before he can place your permanent dentures.

Dr. Tomase will work with you throughout the creation process to ensure your bite is aligned perfectly.

How do I care for my dentures?

To keep your dentures in good shape, it’s important to take care of them. Some of the most important care tips Dr. Tomase recommends include:

Keep your dentures moist

It’s crucial to store conventional dentures in water or a denture cleanser when you’re not wearing them; otherwise, they may crack or warp. However, you don’t have to worry about taking additional steps with implant-supported dentures.

Brush regularly

Brush traditional and implant-retained dentures regularly to remove food particles, bacteria, and other debris. It’s also important to floss between artificial teeth, just like you would with your natural teeth. This prevents serious dental issues, like gum disease, from developing.

Regular checkups

Regular dental cleanings and exams at Tomase Dental Care will also help you maintain optimal oral health.
