Complete Your Smile With Dentures in Allen Park, MI

An Affordable & Convenient Solution

As we age, our gums naturally recede, leaving more room for cavities to develop at the root. As a result, the aging process takes a toll on our oral health. According to one study, 27 percent of people over the age of 65 are missing all of their natural teeth.

Living with just one missing tooth can have lasting damage on your oral health and your social life. Dentures are an affordable way to replace missing teeth and restore your confidence within just a few appointments.

The Benefits of Dentures

In addition to being affordable, dentures offer several benefits that will keep you smiling, including:

  • Treatments are needle-free
  • Support to facial features
  • Create ease with chewing and digestion
  • Replace all of your teeth within a few visits
  • Improve speech
  • Restore your appearance

Our Denture Solutions

At Allen Park Dentistry we can replace any number of missing teeth with our complete and partial denture solutions.

Complete Dentures

If you’re missing all your teeth or planning on having your remaining teeth extracted, we offer complete dentures to restore an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. Unlike dental bridges, which are anchored and cemented to existing teeth, dentures sit on top of your gums and are easily removed for cleaning and storage.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures consist of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base, and connected by a metal framework. They’re used to replace one or more natural teeth on the upper or lower arch. Partial dentures prevent your surrounding teeth from shifting into place, so you won’t have to worry about alignment issues.

The Journey to Completing Your Smile With Dentures

Dentures are the least invasive way to replace missing teeth. At our Allen Park dental office, our denture procedure is pain-free, needle-free, and won’t require any preparation of your surrounding teeth.

Your complete or partial dentures will be customized specifically for you. You can pick the color of your new smile and Dr. Mahjoub will ensure it aligns with the shape of your gums. During your initial consultation, Dr. Mahjoub will examine your oral health to look for any signs of decay, infection, or teeth that may need to be extracted.

Prior to starting treatment, she’ll complete the recommended procedures to ensure you’re an ideal candidate for dentures. Once the healing is complete, you can get fitted for your dentures. The process to a beautiful smile with dentures can be completed in just a few steps, including:

  • Measurements will be taken and a mold will be made to ensure the restoration fits your mouth precisely
  • The mold will be sent to a lab where a plastic mock-up will be crafted
  • Once we receive the mock-up, you’ll come in for a fitting, we’ll take notes on any feedback, and send the dentures back to the lab
  • The lab will set your dentures in acrylic
  • You’ll come in for a final fitting where we’ll make any last adjustments
  • You’ll leave our office with your new complete smile

Adapting to Dentures

Like any new habit or hobby, you’ll want to try it in private before you take the center stage. That being said, it’s best to work with your dentures at home before attending lunch dates or social events. That way you can adjust to eating and speaking with them and avoid any mishaps.

We’ve put together a few tips to help you practice with your dentures:

  • Practice singing the cheek exercises
  • Take smaller bites
  • Start with soft foods and slowly incorporate new foods into your diet
  • Try different types of adhesives
  • Practice speaking before going out in public
  • Wear them throughout the day to give yourself time to get used to them.

If you develop any sores, you’ll want to contact our office right away. We may need to adjust your dentures, or we’ll recommend ways to heal or prevent future sores.
