Dentures are great options for our patients who have lost some or all of their teeth. Dentures are a removable prosthetic that mimics the appearance and function of the original smile, and they come in many different options. Most of the patients that come into Lansdowne Dental Arts are familiar with complete dentures, which replace all of the teeth on either the top or bottom sections of the mouth. However, we also offer partial dentures that replace only a few missing teeth while also preventing other teeth from shifting in the mouth. Dr. Jun H Chung offers conventional and immediate dentures, which refers to when the dentures are fitted. Immediate dentures are fitted right after the teeth have been removed. This allows the patient to avoid going without teeth, but it also means that the patient will have to come back to have the dentures refitted as the gums heal. Conventional dentures are fitted after the gums have healed, which means that only one fitting is needed.
Dr. Jun H Chung will make very accurate and precise impressions of the patient’s mouth that will allow him to create a custom-fit denture. At Lansdowne Dental Arts, we know that dentures can benefit a patient for a number of reasons, including improving the aesthetics of the smile, the capacity to chew and digest, and the ability to speak with others.
