As an oral health-care specialist, the denturist offers various types of dentures to satisfy each patient's specific requirements.
Rick Bianchi will work closely with you to determine which form of dentures will best suit your needs and budget. The most common denture option is full dentures, which replaces a mouthful of missing teeth. Custom-fit dentures not only restore your smile and bite function they also feel more comfortable against the sensitive tissues of your mouth.
How Do You Ensure a Perfect Fit?
Rick uses his years of experience and denturist expertise to help you choose the denture that best suits your lifestyle. The importance of a thorough consultation and examination with your denturist prior to any treatment cannot be emphasized enough.
At your consultation appointment, Rick gives you the opportunity to express your concerns and desired outcome for your new dentures as well as allows us to assess the condition of your oral health.
Standard or Custom-Made Dentures
Standard dentures may fit comfortably and chew well, but are designed for the average person using basic tooth shades and shapes. Every denture patient, especially those with oral tissues which have resorbed (shrunk) or those who have unusual jaw relationships (bite) may require a custom-made denture that utilizes premium materials and precision techniques. With custom dentures, esthetics, comfort, fit and function combine to allow your smile to look more natural.
Custom-made dentures instill confidence and provide optimum function while eating, drinking or laughing.
Through use of sophisticated instrumentation, from the impressions of your jaws to the specific jaw movements you make, all of your facial information is recorded. The denturist is able to recreate the character of your smile and restore the natural contour of your lips and facial muscles. Let your smile shine through!
How long will Your Dentures Last?
With regular and careful maintenance by your denturist, you can expect to get about five years of comfortable use out of your dentures before they need to be replaced.
