The Baltimore-area dental practice franchise wishes to call the public’s attention to its long history of skillfully crafting and applying dentures.
BALTIMORE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / September 24, 2021 / People can develop a need for dentures for a wide variety of reasons, including periodontal disease, dental trauma, drug use, malnutrition, and hormonal reactions triggered by pregnancy. After a person reaches advanced age, the likelihood of their requiring dentures increases exponentially due to the human body’s inability to maintain itself as it once did. Regardless of the reason dentures are needed, Smiles R Us Dentistry stands ready to assist its patients with all their denture-related needs, staffed by dozens highly-trained medical professionals well-versed on the subject.
For those who are unfamiliar, the following are some important facts about dentures:
A denture, or a complete denture as it is often called, is a prosthetic dental appliance that is inserted into the mouth, serving to replace natural teeth, all the while providing much-needed support for the cheeks and lips. The upper portion of most dentures are made of acrylic, while the fabricated teeth attached to the bottom can be made of plastic, porcelain, or a combination of both. The lower portion of denture is always crafted to be shaped like a horseshoe in order to leave room for the tongue.
A conventional denture is made after all teeth have been extracted and the surrounding tissues-or gums-have healed, while an immediate denture is fabricated and inserted immediately after the teeth have been extracted and the surrounding tissues are left to heal under the denture.
Over the course of time, dentures will suffer from wear and tear, and need to be replaced or relined in order to keep the jaw alignment optimal. Additionally, the alignment of the prosthesis can gradually change as the denture wearer’s bone and gum ridges recede or shrink due to the extraction of the teeth. Regular dental examinations are still important for the denture wearer so that the oral tissues can be checked for disease or other changes.
The medical professionals at all of the seven Baltimore-area locations of Smiles R Us Dentistry are experts when it comes to crafting and applying dentures, and the franchise is currently accepting new patients.
