As the years go by, chronic gum disease or extracted teeth can severely compromise multiple teeth in your mouth. Having a significant number of lost or compromised teeth can have a serious negative effect on your quality of life. Beyond simply impairing your ability to chew food, these problematic teeth can also cause you to slur your speech and feel self-conscious about your appearance.
In order to address all of these issues and restore the full function of your mouth, your dentist, Dr. Michael Dana, might recommend having most or all of your remaining teeth extracted. This is a preparatory step for fitting you with a custom set of dentures in Spearfish, South Dakota.
Dentures are designed to look like real teeth and natural gums. This effectively restores the full function and appearance of your teeth.
After any remaining teeth have been extracted, Dr. Michael Dana will cast a detailed impression of the structure of your mouth. This will be sent to a professional dental lab to serve as a guide for the technician building your custom dentures.
If you have several compromised teeth, you should call Dana Dental Arts at 605.642.7727 to see if you’re a good candidate for dentures.
