Dentures in Bridgeport

Dentures are a way to replace missing teeth, and with modern technology, they don't have to come in and out of your mouth! Although conventional, removable dentures are still an option, we also offer dentures that can be fixed onto implants. They not only offer superb aesthetics, but they also offer functionality and the ability to chew and taste food like your original, natural teeth.

Advantages of Dentures

  • Enhance Facial Features: missing teeth can cause areas of your face to sag. Dentures resolve this issue to restore your natural facial features.
  • Smoother Speech: Replacing missing teeth allow you annunciate clearer and communicate better.
  • Improved Chewing: Missing teeth can make it challenging to eat your favorite foods. Dentures allow you to chew comfortably and get back to enjoying your favorite dishes.
  • Improved Oral Health: By replacing decayed teeth, you can improve your oral health by protecting your remaining natural teeth.

How Dentures Work

Depending on the condition, Dr. Lubchansky may recommend partial or full dentures to restore a patient's smile.

  • Full Dentures: After all remaining teeth have been removed and your gums have healed properly, the dentist will place the removable dentures. The dentures may feel awkward for the first few weeks; however, they should become comfortable and feel natural in your mouth.
  • Partial Dentures: Unlike full dentures, partial dentures only replace a few missing teeth while keeping your healthy natural teeth in place.

Caring for Your Dentures

Rinsing and brushing your dentures will keep them clean and free of bacteria. You can keep them from warping by placing them in a proper container while not in use. Overall, proper oral hygiene will keep your new smile bright and help maintain your oral health.
