You Deserve a Great Smile-Even If You Have Dentures

Can you have a great smile with dentures? Why not? If you have upper, lower, dentures or both you still can have a great smile! If you have upper dentures then you often have a ridge that will help to hold your dentures up and suction that helps with a well fitting denture. It is important that the dentist measure the amount of space that makes up the vertical (up and down) between your gums and teeth ( if you still have lower teeth). They need to take a mold of your mouth to help determine the room you have across the mouth also, and where your teeth can be positioned for their best efficiency in chewing and the best smile.

Some people have trouble wearing dentures- either they hurt an area or they move when you talk. This can especially occur in lower dentures- oftentimes they do not have a big ridge like the upper ones and your lips and tongue hit it when you talk and it moves around.

Recently there are implant supported dentures where 2-4 implants are put in to help the denture stay put. Often your existing denture can be modified to using implants to hold them in.

Here at Dr McGarry’s office we have Dr Rynearson who is great at making comfortable dentures with a beautiful smile. Give us a call and we can set you up for a consult and soon you too will have a great smile!!
