Dentures If you've lost some, most, or all of your teeth, you know the toll it can take, on your appearance and on your confidence.

At the office of R. Ian Murray, DMD, patients with oral dissatisfaction that involves missing or severely eroded teeth can find full dental relief and a rejuvenated smile. That's because Dr. Murray offers both full and partial dentures, depending on the extent of individual tooth loss, that will enhance facial appearance and even strengthen underlying jawbone.

Denture Provisions

Check out a few of the advantages dentures can bring the mouths of people with missing teeth below:

  • improves overall tooth function
  • offers greater support for facial muscles
  • improves your face's youthful appearance while shifting your smile by erasing unnecessary contours in your face

Once you have dentures, Dr. Murray warns against complacent neglect in their post-placement care. To avoid falling victim to surrounding dental tissue infection caused by improper dental care, remember prior to putting in your dentures each morning to brush your gums, tongue, and palate with a soft-bristled brush.

Also, eating a healthy diet gives you better odds in staying infection-free going forward. You should eat primarily soft foods, while staying away from anything sticky or hard, especially in the first few months following denture placement.

Who Should Get Dentures?

You'll know you're a candidate for dentures if you:

  • Have lost most or all of your teeth (full dentures)
  • Have lost some teeth (partial dentures)
  • Have strong bone density in your jaws

What If They Malfunction?

If you live in Stuart, FL and your denture has a break, crack, or misalignment, come see Dr. Murray as soon as you can. The damage can be assessed and repairs or an entirely new set can be ordered as needed.
