Looking for a tooth replacement option? Ask our dentist in Grand Rapids, MI, if you’re a candidate for full or partial dentures. Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. They are made of acrylic resin and sometimes in combination with various other metals.

Here’s what else you need to know about getting dentures at the NorthPointe Family Dental & Implant Center.

Are Dentures Comfortable?

Correctly placing dentures takes skill and experience. Our Grand Rapids dentist is experienced in making sure your dentures are placed correctly and skilled in ensuring that they fit and function properly. That way, you’ll be able to eat, smile, talk, and laugh with confidence.

Some patients may prefer to use a denture adhesive for extra stability as they go about their day. However, if you find yourself using denture adhesive often, it may be worth scheduling a follow-up appointment with Dr. Yun. Our dentist in Grand Rapids, MI, may need to occasionally adjust the fit of your dentures to ensure they continue to look and feel natural.

What are the Different Types of Dentures?

There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed.

How Do I Care for Full or Partial Dentures?

Just like natural teeth, partial and full dentures need to be properly cared for. Use a gentle cleanser to brush your dentures, always keep them moist when they’re not in use, and be sure to keep your tongue and gums clean as well.
