Dentures

Dentures, Kalama Family Dental, Cynthia Lehnertz, DMD

Sometimes dentures are the solution to the most serious dental problems.

When disease, malnutrition or genetic disorders, make it necessary to extract all of a patient’s lower or upper teeth, Dr. Cynthia Lehnertz’s team can make that process as easy as possible for you. While losing your teeth can be devastating, dentures can provide you with a second chance to have a beautiful smile.

Complete dentures are created to replace all your teeth. They, of course, help with chewing, and they also support a person’s facial structure, and improve speech. Immediate dentures are created when you still have some or most of your natural teeth that are in poor health. Immediate dentures are placed immediately after extracting your teeth so you don’t have to experience ‘going toothless’. They are used while your gums heal and your bone re-align’s after having teeth removed. This can take up to six months, so immediate dentures are a great choice.

Sometimes, a complete set of dentures isn’t necessary. Partial dentures can replace several missing teeth. They are secured to your remaining teeth with clasps. This is a good alternative for some people.

Regardless of the kind of dentures you choose, be assured that at Kalama Family Dental you’ll receive natural-looking dentures that match your facial structure and desired tooth color.
