If you have lost teeth due to decay, disease, or injury, dentures can help you regain confidence in your smile. When you lose teeth, facial muscles may sag, chewing might become difficult, and you may notice a difference in your speech. According to statistics, approximately 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. You don't have to be one of them. If you live near the Atlanta, GA, area, visit our dental office for a consultation with Dr. Thomas W. Kauffman to address the problem, and discuss tooth replacement options.
What Dentures Can Do For You
Dentures are artificial teeth that replicate your natural ones. They can be made for one tooth or multiple, and use a pink acrylic base that acts as your gums to hold these artificial teeth in place. Depending on your specific case, after performing an oral exam, Dr. Thomas W. Kauffman in our Atlanta, GA, office, can help you get the look and feel you desire. Dentures take some getting used to, but once they fit comfortably, chewing and speaking will progress, and you may observe a more youthful appearance.
Types of Dentures We Offer
Partial - Comprised of metal framework, replacement teeth, and a pink or gum-colored plastic base. These dentures replace one or a few teeth and adhere to your surrounding natural teeth.
Immediate - After tooth extraction, these dentures are immediately placed inside the mouth over the extraction site.
Conventional - Made to cover your upper and lower jaw, these dentures are removable and placed in the mouth once the remainders of your teeth are extracted.
Dentures are an easy way to improve the condition of your oral health and restore your smile. If you are considering dentures, would like to explore them further, and you live near our Downtown Atlanta, GA, office, Dr. Thomas W. Kauffman can guide you through the process and assure that you are pleased with the outcome. To schedule an appointment, please call (404) 524-198 today!
