Are you missing most or all of your teeth? Dr. Kenneth Schweizer may recommend dentures in Sarasota, Florida. A denture is a removable appliance that replaces the missing teeth and surrounding tissues of your smile. At our dental office, we offer partial dentures and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used when one or more teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Complete dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are missing. Talk to our dentist to find out which type or denture is right for you.
Once our dentist decides which type of denture is right for you, the denture making process takes a few weeks and several appointments. Our dentist will make several impressions of your jaw and take measurements of how your jaws relate to each other. Models are created in the exact shape and position of your future dentures. Our dentist will have you try on these models several times so the color, shape, and fit can be assessed. When everything is satisfactory, the final denture is cast. Any final adjustments are made as needed.
We encourage you to contact our dental office today to learn more about dentures and to schedule your next appointment with our dentist.
