Smiling when you don’t have teeth can produce uncomfortable, embarrassing feelings, particularly if the people in your family, your denturesoffice or your group of friends all seem to have a functional set of healthy teeth. What you might not realize, however, is that the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry estimates that nearly 40 million Americans wear dentures, giving them the freedom to eat, talk and smile comfortably. At Family Dental Care in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, Drs. Edward Pergiovanni and Mary Pergiovanni are committed to helping their patients experience a better life through their dental health. Here you’ll learn how dentures can help you:

What are dentures?

Dentures have been restoring the look and function of natural teeth for centuries, but it’s only been in the last few years that they’ve become more realistic and comfortable than ever before. Your Rocky Hill family dentist takes x-rays and other images of your mouth that are used to craft your custom dentures. From the plastic gum base to the ceramic teeth, your dentures will look great and fit snugly against your gum ridges. A combination of natural suction and a special adhesive will help restore the smiling, eating and talking capabilities that may have diminished over the years of tooth loss.

Are dentures right for me?

Most people who are missing most or all of their teeth are good candidates for dentures. The remaining teeth can be extracted and you can be fitted for dentures soon after. Dentures are a budget-friendly way to replace the presence of natural teeth and, once a routine is established, are easy to maintain. However, if you have retained most of your natural teeth and they are still fairly healthy, your Rocky Hill family dentist may suggest other tooth replacement options to you. A thorough examination and consultation with Dr. Edward Pergiovanni or Dr. Mary Pergiovanni will determine the best course of action for you.
