If you are missing a number of teeth, Dr. Reena M. Varghese, MSEd, MSc, can use dentures to restore functionality to your bite and fill in the gaps in your smile. Dentures can often serve as a suitable alternative for patients who may not be candidates for dental implants. Dentures are made from durable materials and are crafted to resemble your natural teeth. These removable dental appliances are also designed to maximize your comfort when worn and improve your ability to chew and speak.
Having a confident, healthy, beautiful smile is important for patients wearing dentures. As a Board Certified Prosthodontist, Dr. Varghese provides personalized denture services that meet the needs and comfort levels of our patients. All of our patients are unique and we create one-of-a-kind dentures that feel good and look natural.
The Dentures Procedure
Depending upon your individual circumstances, a complete or partial denture will be crafted. A complete denture is used to replace an entire row of missing teeth. A partial denture is used when only some teeth need to be replaced. In addition to improving the look and function of your smile, a partial denture can prevent adjacent teeth from shifting and reduce the risk of further dental complications. Whether you are in need of a partial denture or full dentures, our patients at Princeton Dental Group often report a higher quality of life with these custom-made teeth replacements.
To create a custom denture that is easy to wear, the process may take a few appointments over the course of a few weeks. Dr. Varghese will take impressions and measurements of your mouth so the denture can be fitted with the highest degree of precision. You will have comprehensive fittings to ensure that your denture remains comfortably and naturally in place.
Results of Dentures
If by chance your dentures do break, please contact us and schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Broken dentures that don't fit properly can cause irritation to your gums and mouth. Also, remember to continue scheduling regular dental checkups every six months to make sure that your smile stays healthy for many years to come.
