Traditional Dentures

Custom-Fit Traditional Dentures in Aurora, CO

Losing any number of teeth is an unwelcome situation for adults and children alike. Aside from aesthetic reasons, it impacts your teeth’ chewing ability and causes jaw bone loss. If you have recently lost a tooth, don’t wait for it to affect your oral health. You can get traditional dentures in Aurora, CO, to replace missing teeth.

What are Traditional Dentures?

These are prosthetic devices that function similarly to false teeth. They can serve as a partial or complete teeth replacement. Traditional dentures support the mouth’s tissues, face muscles, and speech and chewing activities. They are an effective, less-invasive, and affordable teeth replacement, especially for patients who have lost all their teeth.

Traditional complete dentures depend on suction and soft tissue support to remain in place. On the other hand, partial dentures use a metal clasp that attaches to the remaining natural teeth. The upper denture has a base that covers the roof of your mouth while the lower denture has a shape like a horseshoe to accommodate the tongue. These restorations can be crafted from various materials, including acrylic and porcelain, and look very close to natural teeth.
