Missing teeth may add to a number of problems, including sagging facial muscles, inability to eat certain foods and speak. If you’ve lost all your natural teeth due to periodontal disease or injury, dentures may be your best solution and getting them doesn’t have to be a traumatic experience. First, any remaining teeth are removed and a model is made of the patient’s jaw. Then a temporary denture is fitted while the mouth tissue heals. Once the mouth tissue is completely healed, the patient is fitted with their custom dentures.
