Dentist in Wilmington, NC
Dentures are a removable substitute for one or more missing teeth. They are used to restore both aesthetics and function. To fit your mouth and match the appearance of your natural teeth, dentures are custom-made. To ensure comfort and proper function, the fit of your dentures may be adjusted upon request.
When replacing the full upper or lower set of teeth, our team adds “complete dentures.” To replace one or more teeth while allowing others to remain, “partial dentures” are used. This prevents teeth from shifting through missing teeth into the space left.
Dentures should be cleaned regularly using a soft bristle toothbrush and a non-abrasive cleanser. Keep your regular dental appointments as recommended. Dentures should be replaced every 5-10 years. At each appointment, Dr. Jacob Long will evaluate whether your dentures should be refitted or replaced.
