Dentures in Winter Haven, FL

What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth. They can be full dentures, replacing all teeth, or partial dentures, replacing only a few missing teeth and anchored to existing natural teeth. Full dentures consist of an acrylic base resembling gum tissue with attached artificial teeth, while partial dentures have a metal or acrylic framework with clasps. These custom-made prosthetics enhance chewing, speech, and facial appearance. Regular cleaning, maintenance, and potential adjustments are necessary to ensure a comfortable fit and optimal functionality. Implant-supported dentures, attaching to dental implants for added stability, are also available for enhanced support and performance.

What to expect at my visit?

During your denture visit,  Dr. Klein will assess your oral health, take impressions or digital scans for custom fitting, and discuss your preferences. Once your dentures are crafted, a fitting will be done with necessary adjustments to ensure comfort and functionality. If you're new to dentures, your dentist will provide care instructions. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled for adjustments or routine check-ups to maintain optimal fit and address any concerns. Whether obtaining new dentures or maintaining existing ones, effective communication with your dentist is crucial for ensuring ongoing oral health and the longevity of your dentures.
