Saint Paul Dentures, Dresen Restorative Dentistry

saint_paul_denturesIn Saint Paul dentures are a specialty of Dr. Dresen. Dentures today are quite natural looking, and are used to replace missing teeth. The nice thing about dentures is that they can be taken out and put back into your mouth, so you don’t “always” have to wear them.

Dr. Dresen is well known for Saint Paul dentures, whether full or partial. Full dentures use a flesh-colored base that fit over your gums, with the upper’s base covering the roof of your mouth. The lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe and is able to accommodate your tongue. Dr. Dresen can take “impressions” of your mouth in order to have custom-made full dentures that fit just right.

Do you have a couple of missing teeth, but the rest are in decent shape? Then a partial denture might be in order. Partial dentures rest on a metal framework which attaches to your natural teeth. As a St. Paul dentures’ specialist, Dr. Dresen can examine your teeth and figure out if you could benefit from partial dentures, which can improve your speech, ability to chew food, and the appearance of your smile.

As you’d expect, dentures take some time to get used to. That said, they can last a long time. Should your mouth naturally change its shape, dentures can be relined, remade or rebased.

Taking good care of your dentures is a smart idea. Keep in mind they’re somewhat delicate, so handle them with care. When they’re not being worn, dentures should be kept in plain water or denture cleanser soaking solution so they don’t dry out. Just like you’d brush your natural teeth, you’ll need to brush your dentures to keep them clean.

Your Saint Paul dentures’ specialist, Dr. Dresen, will take the time to properly explain the whole process of getting, using, and caring for dentures to help you feel comfortable with the procedure. As more and more people get dentures these days, they’re becoming quite popular and commonplace. In Saint Paul, Dresen Dentistry does dentures and does them well; call 651-735-1585 to make an appointment today.
