A denture is a removable dental appliance created to replace missing teeth. Dentures play an important part in keeping the teeth and mouth in frame when one or more teeth are missing. When several teeth are missing, dentures are crucial in helping prevent other teeth from shifting their position in the mouth.

Dentures can:

  • Replace the complete or partial loss of teeth in an arch
  • Enhance your facial tissues and smile
  • Improve chewing, speech and digestive functions

Procedure

The procedure requires multiple visits to the practice that are scheduled over the course of several weeks. Within these scheduled visits, accurate molds of your mouth will be taken to help create your custom-made dentures. Preliminary fitting appointments may also be necessary to ensure the optimal shape, fit, and color of your denture. At the final appointment, your dentures will be ready to be placed and adjusted by Dr. Levine for a natural, comfortable fit.

After your last appointment, Dr. Levine will provide you with additional instructions regarding the care and maintenance of your dentures. Proper cleaning and hygiene will help secure the longevity of your dentures.
