When Are Dentures Necessary?
Dentures are necessary whenever you’ve lost one or more teeth, and you've decided against alternatives like dental bridges or dental implants. Tooth loss is a serious oral health problem. It can cause further issues like teeth shifting, a higher susceptibility to gum disease, and problems with eating your favorite foods. Dentures are an affordable, fast, and simple way to restore your smile, making them an excellent option for treating tooth loss in Stamford.
Replace Missing Teeth
If you’re missing just a few teeth, we will recommend partial dentures. These consist of several false teeth, which are attached to a durable metal and plastic framework. This framework snaps onto your healthy teeth. This holds the false teeth securely in the gaps where your missing teeth used to be. Partial dentures look very natural, last a long time, and are a cost-effective way to replace your missing teeth.
Restore your entire mouth
A set of full dentures can be used to replace the upper, lower, or both rows of teeth. A gum-colored acrylic base is used to support a full row of natural, durable, and strong false teeth.
However, full dentures are only a good option if you’ve lost most or all of your teeth. This is because they must fit directly over your gums. For a proper fit, any remaining teeth must be extracted, even if they are healthy.
What To Expect
The Denture Placement Process
First, Dr. Park or Dr. Kwon will examine your mouth, and determine if dentures are right for you. If you’re approved, they will take a variety of images, molds, and measurements of your teeth and gums. These are used by our partner dental lab to create a set of test dentures.
Your first set of test dentures will arrive at our office in a week or two, and you’ll come back to try them on. Dr. Kwon or Dr. Park will discuss their fit with you, and take notes to adjust and improve them. This process may be repeated several times until your ideal fit has been achieved.
Once the fit is perfect, your final set of dentures will be made by our partner dental lab, and sent to our office. You’ll come in one last time to pick them up, and to get instructions on how to wear them and care for them. Then, simply go home and enjoy your new smile!

Benefits of Choosing Dentures
Affordability is a huge benefit. Compared to alternatives like dental implants and dental bridges, dentures are much more affordable. The cost is also usually covered, at least partially, by dental insurance.
They also are a faster and simpler way to restore your smile compared to some treatments like dental implants, which can take months. If you want to get your smile back quickly, dentures from our Stamford dental office are a good option.
But the biggest benefit is that dentures help restore your smile and preserve the appearance of your face. Dentures can even make you look younger, since tooth loss is often associated with old age. You’ll also be able to speak clearly and eat your favorite foods, though it may take a little while to get used to how your new dentures feel.
