An Investment in Your Health

Losing your natural, permanent teeth can damage your self-esteem, negatively impact chewing and change your facial appearance. High quality dentures are a safe and effective way to resolve these physical problems and boost your self-esteem.

What are Dentures?
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever, made from all acrylic (plastic) or metal and acrylic.

There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the costs involved.

How do Dentures Work?
With dentures, a flesh-coloured acrylic base-either full acrylic or metal and acrylic fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of your mouth), while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue.

Dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth. Your dentist will determine which of the types of dentures described is best for you.

A worthwhile investment, Fresh Dental believes in the benefit of a full set of dentures.
