Do you wish you knew more about dentures? If so, our dentist, Dr. Chris Lindsey, is more than happy to help you. Dentures are handy appliances that can replace your missing teeth, beautify your smile, and improve your oral health. They can help you in a myriad of ways. To tell you more about dentures in Palo Alto, California, our dentist is happy to share some facts with you. Those facts are:

-There are two different denture options available. The first option is a complete denture, which replaces the entire arch of teeth. The second option is a partial denture, which replaces one or more missing teeth in a row.

-The complete dentures fit in the mouth by suctioning to the palate. The partial dentures fit in the mouth by clasping to the teeth on both sides of the gap.

-If you want a more secure hold with the appliance, you can use denture adhesive. This product helps prevent the appliance from slipping or sliding.

-It’s important to clean your dentures daily by rinsing them, brushing them, and soaking them.

-Your dentures might feel awkward when you first start to wear them. This is to be expected. Don’t worry! It will get better with time.
