Restore Your Smile With Dentures
Dentures Ponchatoula, Louisiana Dentist
Losing most or all of your teeth can be cause for serious discomfort. Not only does an incomplete smile make it difficult to have confidence in yourself, but the structure of your jaw is essential to maintaining the elasticity of your facial muscles. Without teeth, your face can sag, making you look older. Fortunately, Dr. Gregg May has been providing comfort and relief to patients with dentures for many years. Dentures are an excellent way to regain the structure, function, and aesthetics of your teeth in just a few easy office visits, and we would love to help you revitalize your smile.
We have two conveniently located offices available to our patients, and a helpful and friendly office staff who are ready to answer your questions, so please feel free to contact us.
Know the Benefits
Dentures provide a comfortable, comprehensive solution to missing teeth. Without them, you may experience difficulty eating or speaking, and your smile may look as if it’s aged beyond your years. Dentures provide a new opportunity for you to show off a beautiful smile. Thanks to modern technology and continuing advancements in the dental field, dentures can be made to not only fit comfortably in your mouth, feel natural, and function organically, but also appear remarkably life-like. At Deep South Family Dentistry, we can customize the color, shape, and style of your dentures so that the artificial gums and teeth look precisely how you want them to.
Dr. Gregg May is dedicated to making your experience with them as comfortable and personal as possible. The style of dentures that’s right for you will be determined after a thorough examination during your first consultation. There are two main types of dentures, partial and full.
- Partial dentures are used for patients who are missing one or more teeth but have some remaining healthy ones. Clasps are generally used to hold the dentures in place.
- Full dentures replace entire sets of teeth and are complete with artificial gum tissue used to create a natural look and act as the point of connection between the dentures and your gums.
Dentures can either be entirely removable or be used in conjunction with dental implants to create a permanent, long-lasting set of teeth.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth can cause many oral health problems if they are not replaced immediately. In cases in which a few teeth are missing, the remaining healthy teeth can tend to shift, making it essential to restore the structure of the jaw as soon as possible. Missing teeth and misaligned smiles are also at a higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease, as their displacement makes it more difficult to clean them.
