Modern dentistry has developed customized dentures that can appear as natural looking as your natural teeth. Dr. Myers can personalize your dentures taking into consideration the shape of your face, the tone of your skin, and even your gender before creating a denture that will fit you best. He can help with the look of each individual tooth, its form, size, color and arrangement.
Dr. Myers recommends dentures when there are no healthy teeth remaining. Dentures are a drastic option, and one that we wont take lightly. This is an option when there are no other options. Dentures can not replicate the same feel or function of natural teeth but they can buy you freedoms that having no healthy teeth will not. There are new options for our patients seeking dentures that we can discuss with you at B.J. Myers DDS & Associates that can help your new false teeth be as comfortable as possible.
Dentures come in a variety of materials, some with greater comfort, fit and performance. Today's dentures last longer and because they are made with new high-impact denture base materials, they are also stronger and more likely to survive a drop on the ground. They generally are available in two styles, either partial or full. Dr. Myers will help you decide which is the best option for you.
Partial dentures are recommended with you have some remaining healthy teeth. This is a more comfortable for you because you are able to attach the partial denture piece to the remaining healthy teeth, giving it a firm base to attach to, We offer both removable, can be unclasped, and permanent, has been cemented into place, partial dentures.
