Your Dentures Dentist in Sarasota
Sarasota Dentistry creates beautiful custom dentures for our patients. Dr. Michael and his team of dental experts are helping patients with their dentures. Full dentures are removable devices that are designed to replace a full arch of missing teeth on the upper or lower jaw.
Dentures are acrylic-based devices that fit over your gum tissue to provide you with a functional chewing surface and teeth to smile with. Dentures may never feel quite like your natural teeth, but are more comfortable and realistic looking thanks to today’s dental technology. There are both upper and lower dentures. Sarasota Dentistry is ready to help you find the best dentures for your needs.
Upper dentures are held by the suction created by the acrylic base of the denture as it is placed over the roof of your mouth. In most cases, this suction is more than sufficient to hold your denture and allow you to function normally with it. Lower dentures are horseshoe-shaped to allow space for your tongue, and designed to fit specifically to the contours of your lower jaw. They don’t use suction like upper dentures, but are effective as a removable replacement of missing teeth.
