Avoid discomfort, poor fit with the precision planning process for complete dentures in Thibodaux, LA
The comfort, natural appearance, and functionality of dentures depend on how they fit. Acadia Family Dentistry’s approach to the process of getting complete dentures is exacting; Dr. Jared Palmer uses sophisticated technologies at his Thibodaux, LA, office to collect precise information about the contours of your mouth. The more accurate the information that he collects upfront, the better the outcomes and satisfaction that you have from your dentures. After all, this information is used to make your dentures. If there is incomplete or imprecise data, the resulting denture will not fit comfortably to the curves in your mouth. In fact, many of the complaints that have traditionally been associated with dentures have to do with loose or otherwise ill-fitting appliances. We help you to avoid many of those common complaints. So, you enjoy:
- Comfortable wear
- Fast and easy adjustment process
- Efficient chewing
- Proper and clear speech patterns
- Effective support of overlying facial tissues
- Long-term functionality
Proper fit is particularly important when discussing complete lower dentures. The palate in your upper jaw is designed in a way that facilitates optimal suction to hold the denture in place. However, the shape of the floor of the mouth and tongue movement can challenge proper retention and dislodge a lower denture. So, many wearers of lower dentures rely on products such as denture adhesives to stabilize their appliances. A well-fitting denture from the get-go can help to minimize a patient’s reliance on these products.
“False” teeth that don’t look fake!
Due to our precision planning process and use of quality materials, the teeth that make up your denture look indistinguishable in appearance from natural and healthy teeth. Additionally, the materials that are used to replace the gum tissue portion of the denture are color-matched to look like natural gums.
A lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles
It’s important to remember that even the most well-crafted dentures may require adjustments or replacement over time. Oral tissues evolve as time marches on. This process causes dentures that once fit well to become loose and to rub up against the inside of the mouth. You may develop sores and other irritation. During routine visits, Dr. Palmer evaluates your dentures and makes recommendations for repair, relining, rebasing, or replacement as needed. One of the great things about getting dentures that fit exactly to your specifications is that they are built to withstand the test of time. Dentures that fit as they should are less likely to fracture. So, you can keep smiling confidently for years to come.
