Dentures Good Enough for Athens, GA
It’s easy to feel uncomfortable around others if your smile isn’t what it used to be. Losing teeth makes eating and talking difficult as well. From Bishop to Danielsville and Watkinsville to Bogart Dr. Glenn Alex offers dentures to the whole Athens, Georgia area. Our friendly staff can help you explore your denture options and determine what works best for you.
Dentures We Offer
Here at Glenn Alex, DMD, we use top-quality traditional dentures and partial dentures for our patients. Our process is simple, comfortable and fast. One of our staff members carefully takes a mold of your mouth and teeth then sends it to a professional dental lab that specializes in custom-crafted dentures. This allows us to craft full dentures or partial dentures that fit every contour and section of your mouth perfectly.
What are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are practical for patients who are only missing a few teeth. The partial denture will use the remaining teeth as an anchor. We will then “bridge” the gap between the remaining natural teeth. Many patients are removable and comfortable, making them a popular choice.
What are Complete Dentures?
Complete dentures are ideal for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth. Complete dentures are available in two types. Conventional dentures are placed in the mouth after the natural teeth have been removed. It may take several months for the gums to heal before the dentures can be placed.
Immediate dentures are placed in the mouth as soon as teeth are removed. Immediate dentures give patients the option to never be without teeth. However, the dentures do need to be relined months after being inserted and about every five years thereafter. This is because the bone supporting the teeth will reshape as it heals following the procedure.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures are an effective way to improve functionality and restore your beautiful smile. A new set of dentures can let you eat your favorite foods and ease uncomfortable situations due to having missing teeth. With dentures, you will be able to smile and laugh with confidence.
Dr. Glenn Alex and his staff provide quality dentures, no matter what kind you need. If you have any questions, please call us today at 706-549-5678. We provide beautiful smiles for patients all over the Athens, Georgia area.
