Dentures are an option, Cottage Grove Dentures

cottage_grove_denturesDr. Dresen is Cottage Grove dentures’ specialist. He helps many people restore their smile using dentures.

Dentures are something people don’t think about it until they need them. If you’ve ever lost a tooth due to injury or decay, you’ve been faced with the question, “What am I going to do about it?”

In Cottage Grove dentures are common because they take the place of missing teeth and surrounding tissues, and look real to the naked eye. Dentures are essentially replacements for missing teeth, and they’re available as “complete” or “partial” versions.

Say, for instance, the majority of your teeth were/are missing and you wish you could have teeth to properly chew food and smile. Complete dentures can make that happen. Conventional dentures or immediate dentures (for temporary use) can be created to be worn in a person’s mouth as if they were real teeth. They aid in speaking, eating, smiling and more.

Partial dentures take the place of a tooth or a few teeth missing; these dentures are attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base and connected by metal framework so they stay put in the mouth where they’re needed. Partial dentures not only help a person look better, but they also serve an important function—filling the space created by missing teeth so the other teeth don’t change position. Depending on your needs, dentures can be made to look quite natural so others hardly notice you have them, if at all.

For Cottage Grove dentures, Dr. Dresen’s office is the place to go. Most dental insurances cover some or all of the cost of dentures, so if you think you may need full dentures, partial dentures, or repairs for your current dentures, Cottage Grove’s Dresen Dentistry can help.
