Dentures can give you the smile you want and need.
Without a full smile, you will feel self-conscious in social and professional situations. You will also experience problems eating and speaking. Missing teeth can cause a sunken appearance in your face, which will make you look older than your true age. If the time has come for you to enjoy a complete smile, why not reach out to Michael R. Mullen D.D.S. for an appointment for dentures in El Paso, Texas?
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that can replace several missing teeth in your mouth, which is known as a partial denture, or an entire dental arch if needed. A denture that replaces an entire row of teeth is known as a complete denture. Dentures are removable, and need to be cleaned, just like your natural teeth. They can accumulate food debris and plaque and will need to be gently scrubbed each day with a soft-bristle toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste or denture cleaner. When you are not wearing your dentures, they need to be kept moist to retain their shape, and a soaking solution can help keep them clean.
Your dentures may require an adjustment period. Our dentist will discuss with you the details of wearing dentures. Your dentures may feel a little bulky a first, which is perfectly normal. But if you feel continuous pressure or discomfort, you will need to have them adjusted. You may need to return to the office a few weeks after you receive your dentures for a final adjustment and to have them lined.
If you are tired of living with missing teeth, dentures may be the answer to your problem. If you would like to learn more, contact our office at 915-593-1900 to schedule your appointment.
