Dentures in Gaithersburg MD
Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about the way you look, make it difficult to speak properly, and also make it hard to eat, especially when it comes to fresh, crunchy foods like fruits and vegetables.
At Lakeforest Dental Associates, we create dentures that look and feel great so you can enjoy life through social activities and eating delicious cuisine.
Dentures provide a tried-and-true way to replace missing teeth and have been around for centuries. As with all types of dentistry, they have improved a lot with modern technology and advancements in treatment.
Today’s dentures fit better and look better than ever!
Complete Upper or Lower Dentures
Full extractions on your upper or lower arch are often fitted with complete dentures. Complete dentures replace all your missing teeth, so you can chew, speak, and smile with confidence. They also provide fullness to your facial appearance and prevent the sunken look that can come with tooth loss.
We create realistic-looking dentures using a pink, resin base with artificial denture teeth. Unlike the boxy and opaque dentures of the past, today’s denture teeth come in a wide variety of shades and colors to match your age, gender, and facial features.
If you decide to replace your teeth with a full set of dentures, our dentists will discuss a look that works for you and helps you feel good about the way you look.
If you still have some of your natural teeth, we can complete your smile using partial dentures.
Partial dentures anchor onto your remaining teeth, and we will design them to match your teeth, giving you a natural look.
Partial dentures come in a variety of materials such as resin, metal, and even flexible versions. Dr. Neil Daftary and Dr. Robert Zaner will discuss which options will work best for you and make a recommendation that will give you great results.
Some patients have a difficult time with dentures fitting properly, either due to bone loss or because of their unique anatomy. As a result, patients may avoid wearing their denture or feel self-conscious about eating and speaking, which can limit their social engagement.
We address this problem by placing dental implants in the upper arch, lower arch, or both to lock your denture in place. Since dental implants are rooted in your bone, they will provide outstanding stability and give you the confidence to enjoy life to the fullest.
