Full upper dentures typically have an acrylic base that covers the roof of your mouth to give stability and suction. Full lower dentures are typically a “U” shape that sits on the lower bone ridge. They each have their bases reach out under your lips and cheeks for stability and bracing.
You have the advantage of improving your smile with whiter, straighter teeth or maintain a very natural relaxed smile with the character of your original teeth (little imperfections and all!). You can help decide on the look of your denture, we welcome your suggestions.
Once your teeth are removed the remaining bone ridge will typically shrink over time. With full dentures you can often replace more than just teeth, you can replace facial support to fill out wrinkles, sunken cheeks and lips. Call it a “denture facelift.” This can make you look significantly younger, more pleasant and definitely more confident!
Average denture replacement times are five to seven years due to the expected change of your mouth and normal material wear. Insurance companies typically follow these averages as well.
