Everyone deserves to have a healthy, complete smile that lasts a lifetime. Sometimes, we may lose our natural teeth due to injury, decay, or other oral health conditions. However, this doesn’t mean all hope is lost. At Cobb Family Dentistry, we offer several tooth replacement options, including complete and partial dentures. 

Untreated tooth loss not only hinders your ability to bite, chew, and speak with comfort and ease, but it can also put a damper on your self-confidence. Dr. Reid Popple and our team can help you restore your smile’s function and appearance with custom-made dentures in Mableton, GA.

What Is a Denture?

A denture is a set of prosthetic (false) teeth patients wear to replace missing natural teeth. Conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, and facial trauma can result in tooth loss. Some dentures can replace a few missing teeth, while others replace all teeth, gums, and surrounding oral tissues.

Types of Dentures

There are many different dentures, each with its unique characteristics and purpose. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Popple and our team can determine which denture is best for your situation.

  • Complete (full) denture – replaces all missing teeth, gums, and tissues 
  • Partial removable denture – removable and replaces some missing teeth
  • Partial fixed denture – not removable by the wearer and replaces some missing teeth Implant-retained denture – removable, provides anchorage for the prosthetic teeth, and adds retention from bone loss 
  • Immediate (same-day) denture – replaces missing teeth directly after tooth extractions

How Dentures Can Benefit Your Health and Wellness

Missing teeth can cause a plethora of problems, from tooth migration and gum disease to further tooth loss. Missing teeth can also impede your ability to enjoy nutritious meals and pronounce words. With dentures, your mouth can function the way it’s designed to so you can effectively eat, speak, and smile with confidence and ease. 

Here are some of the main benefits of having dentures:

  • Dentures energize your appearance, filling out your face and making you appear younger. 
  • Dentures improve your ability to safely and effectively bite, tear, and chew your favorite foods. 
  • Dentures promote improved speech and pronunciation of words. 
  • Dentures protect your mouth’s structures and tissues from potential irritation, wear, and damage. 
  • Dentures enhance your self-confidence, so you feel freer to be yourself. 
  • Dentures are comfortable when custom-made for your unique anatomy.

Dentures Made for Your Unique Smile

At Cobb Family Dentistry, we use advanced in-house technology, such as intraoral scanners and 3-D printers, to streamline the traditional denture process. These technologies, coupled with Dr. Popple’s expertise, allow us to deliver ideal outcomes for our patients. If a patient desires a second set of dentures, we are more than happy to oblige by printing another one for them using our 3-D printer.

We design each denture to meet your oral health needs and aesthetics, so your new smile feels and looks completely natural. Dentures fill out your facial profile, energize your appearance, and make it easier to chew, speak, and smile.
