Tooth loss affects 178 million Americans according to the American College of Prosthodontists, and 40 million are edentulous (no teeth). DentureTooth loss is a major reason why many patients decide to give up on their smiles. One way that your dentist at Bella Dentistry, LLC in Athens, GA, can help you is to create a custom fit denture device that you can wear throughout your day. Learn more about what is required to have a denture made and fit to your needs.

What Are Dentures?
A denture is a dental device that provides you with a tooth replacement option. The “teeth” are made of ceramic or porcelain material that resembles white tooth enamel, and the pink “gums” are made of a similar plastic material. They slide over your remaining gumline, suctioning in place. Some dentures are partial devices that use metal frameworks to attach to your other teeth.

How Dentures Can Help You
The quality and appearance of dentures have improved significantly over the years. These are a few ways that getting dentures at Bella Dentistry, LLC in Athens, GA, can help you:

- They cover your gumline, protecting it from food particles and bad bacteria.
- They are relatively easy to clean, and can be soaked to eliminate bacteria-filled film.
- Dentures can be adjusted as needed to ensure an enduring fit.
- With dentures, you can resume eating normal foods so that you can get the right nutrition in your diet.
- Modern denture devices are very life-like and attractive.

Dentures Supported by Implants
Some patients have concerns about their dentures slipping out at embarrassing moments, such as when you’re eating or chatting with friends. It can sometimes be difficult finding the perfect fit. With dental implants, the denture will be secured in place so that it doesn’t shift. Implant-supported dentures (also called implant overdentures) will provide you with more functionality and comfort.

A Beautiful Smile Once Again
After tooth loss, it may seem like having a beautiful smile again is hopeless. Dentures can help you restore your smile and make you feel more confident in public. Call (706) 546-7722 today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Chanda Bennett at Bella Dentistry, LLC in Athens and Royston, GA.
