The power of a smile is enormous. "When you are smiling," Charlie Chaplin wrote, "the whole world smiles with you." A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. . . Anonymous

DENTURES OVERVIEW AT CHAVIS DENTAL

If you’ve lost some or all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile.

Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.

There are both full and partial dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed; then the dentist then takes measurements and makes models of the patient’s jaws during a preliminary visit.

The innovative Valplast® Flexible Partial allows the restoration to adapt to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth. The flexibility, combined with strength and light weight, provides total comfort and great looks! Chavis Dental can help you decide if they're right for you.

The preparation is relatively simple because your natural teeth don't need to be altered in any way. The Valplast® partial is virtually invisible because there are no telltale metal clasps, and the material itself blends with the tissue in your mouth so that the only thing that shows is your beautiful smile.



Tip: Even if you wear dentures, you still must take good care of your mouth. Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque. Source: American Dental Association
