If you have lost a significant number of teeth in your upper or lower jaw, it can severely impair your ability to chew food. To replace the presence and function of these missing teeth, your dentist, Dr. Stephen A. Maniaci, might recommend fitting you for a custom set of dentures.
You might only need to have your upper teeth or lower teeth replaced by dentures, or you might need to have all your teeth replaced by dentures in a single session.
After any other compromised teeth have been extracted, your dentist will suture your gums and our dental team will make an impression of the structure of your gums. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while making your custom dentures.
Your dentures will be custom fit to the unique shape of your mouth. You might also want to try using denture adhesive for an extra-firm hold. It also has the added benefit of helping block out stray food particles that can irritate the gums.
If you have lost or compromised teeth and you’re interested in dentures in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, you should call 610-678-5858 to schedule an appointment at Dr. Stephen A. Maniaci.
