Are Dentures Right for Me?

Do you have some missing teeth? Then you could benefit from full or partial dentures. Ask your dentist, Dr. Thomas Weigel, about dentures in Hazel Park, MI.

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable artificial teeth and gums. They are custom-made by your dentist to replace your lost teeth and restore their normal appearance and oral functions.

Dentures can be either partial dentures that replace just a few teeth or complete dentures which replace all the teeth on the bottom or top gum line.

Do you need dentures?

If you’re experiencing one or more of the following signs, we encourage you to consider dentures in our Hazel Park, MI, office. The signs may include:

  • Loose or moving teeth: this may be a sign of decay or a symptom of periodontal disease
  • Already missing teeth: missing one or several teeth indicates they need to be replaced as soon as possible. If you have gaps in your smile, you are exposing yourself to shifting teeth and other smile issues
  • Severe toothache: a severe persistent toothache may indicate that teeth have decayed beyond the point of salvage so they will have to be extracted and replaced
  • Puffy or red gums: these are signs of periodontal disease. If left untreated, bone loss begins to occur and result in tooth loss. If gum disease goes too far, then you might need dentures.

How to care for your dentures?

Regardless of the type of dentures you have, just like regular teeth, dentures need to be cleaned daily. You can take them out of your mouth, rinse them with water, and brush them with a soft toothbrush. You also need to take care of your mouth and gums by brushing with fluoridated toothpaste.
