Miami Modern Dental5
They make me feel like I'm part of the family, the office staff is excellent and they do me a good service. The doctors are very friendly with me and try to make me feel comfortable, besides that they truly worry about my dental health, in fact when they do some dental work they call me the next day on the phone to see if I feel ok. I have recommended them to my coworkers and friends and they also have given me a good service report.
What are dentures?Dentures are removable prosthetic devices that are worn inside the mouth. The main purpose of dentures is to replace missing teeth and improve mastication efficacy and speech pronunciation. Other benefits of dentures include regaining vertical dimension of the face lost due to older age, greater lip support to prevent the sunken lip appearance, elimination of Mediolus (corner of the mouth) wrinkles, and obtaining a more natural, healthy, and youthful looking smile.
There are two types of dentures, removable complete dentures and removable partial dentures.
When the person has no teeth in either or both dental arches, then a complete denture will be recommended if there is enough jawbone left to support the complete denture. If there is little to no bone support left, then an implant supported complete denture will be better suited to provide anchorage and stabilize the denture. Removable complete dentures replace all the missing teeth in the arch.
When the person has only a few missing teeth in either or both dental arches, then a removable partial denture will be recommended. Removable partial dentures replace only a few missing teeth in the arch. Further, removable partial dentures can be constructed in many ways. For example:
Traditional Partial Denture – the strongest and most durable partial denture. Uses a metal understructure for strength and rigidity.
Acrylic Partial Denture (Flipper) – the least expensive partial denture. It is made entirely of acrylic resin and uses metal clasps for retention.
Valplast Partial denture – a flexible and highly cosmetic partial denture that uses no metal at all.
Snap-on-Smile – the most cosmetic partial denture. Snap-on-Smile is made of a very strong and flexible epoxy resin. Snap-on-Smile will not only replace your missing teeth, it will transform your smile!
Who can benefit from dentures?
If you have missing teeth or no teeth, have a collapsed facial appearance, want to improve your mastication ability and speech pronunciation, want a more natural, healthy, and younger looking smile, then dentures are right for you.
